Everybody pull out your colour wheel. Do you remember learning about complementary colours in elementary school? Well all of that knowledge is about to pay off. Complementary colours are the colours directly opposite each other in the colour spectrum (red and green; blue and orange) and when it comes to makeup, you can use complementary colors to mask dark shadows, veins, breakouts or just about any other skin imperfection.

It can be a little intimidating to apply a bright green around your nose, or an apricot orange around your eyes, but when these bold colours are used properly they can seriously beautify your skin by evening out the tone and brightening up shadows. Like with any new makeup technique, it takes some time to master so practice is key! Make sure to apply foundation over your correction colour, and as always, blend, blend, blend!
