Colour Correcting is all the rage now , and while I don't go overboard with colour correcting myself - I know a lot of you are curious about great affordable options out there-so today I will share four I love and use mostly. (And for what I use each one ) .

Dirty Works Bye Bye Dark Circles
I love how creamy this formula is (although some might see it as a downside ) . I love this when my skin is a little drier under my eyes - the darker salmon coloured tone to correct and hide any dark circles I might have (from late nights or not sleeping enough ) and the concealer colour over it to cover the corrector colour. I love this combo especially in winter - where I need a creamier consistency under my eyes.
Essence Camouflage Cream Concealer
Again , let's be real - Essence prices are super affordable so this will without a doubt make it into my list. This one works the same as the Dirty Works Under Eye concealer. This formula is thicker and definitely more opaque - But it has two colour options. I use the lighter one to highlight any areas that I feel might look dull if I'm tired - and the darker colour to spot conceal.
Avon Ideal Flawless CC Concealer Stick - Yellow
This is basically a new discovery for me. I love how easy to apply this is - no sticking your finger into any pots - so personally this is a much more hygienic option. There is 3 colour ones in the range - Lilac, Green and this Yellow. I don't use concealers to brighten my face or to cover redness that much , but I wanted to try this one out for underneath my eyes and I'm glad I did. I draw the typical triangles under my eyes and blend this out with a Beauty Blender or my SwiitchBeauty F40 Cake It Brush. It brightens my under eye area and lightens it up beautifully. Especially when I'm sick or feel like my complexion looks a little bit dull. As I mentioned, Avon does have this in a Lilac one (to brighten skin tone ) and a Green one (to cover redness )
Essence All I Need Concealer Palette
Again , you can't go wrong with Essence quality and prices. This is an amazing palette if you are just starting out and not sure what colours you will need for correcting. The green works nicely to cover redness ( I love using this on a pimple first to cover most of the redness - and then use a normal concealer on top ) - the pink colour works amazing to cover dark under eye circles - The middle colour is to dark for me to use as a concealer , but I'm pretty sure it will make a great cream contour shade - I will have to try it for that. There's a yellow lighter toned one that's perfect for underneath the eyes too, and a normal (well at least for me ) toned colour that I use as a normal concealer. This isn't too pigmented where you should be scared of ending up like a green monster - but it does cover any problem area nicely - and again - Essence is super affordable so if you aren't sure if colour correcting is for you you won't waste a ton of money .
In the end , it's what works for you as everyone's skintone is different and has different needs - these are just the ones I find work amazingly well for me .
Do you have a favourite colour correcting concealer ? I'm always open to hear about new fun ones to give a try .
Have a great weekend guys !
