Is The Colour Correcting Trend Going To Be The New Clown Contouring?
This video evidence suggests yes.
Clown contouring might officially be over and it's all thanks to a new beauty trend that's potentially about to shake up the way you do your makeup forever.
Called colour correcting, it involves similar principles to contouring and highlighting - that's using dark and light shades of makeup to help sculpt and define your face - but this time is more focused on using pastel coloured products to help give your skin tone a super even and healthy glow.
If banishing eyebags or red cheeks are a constant battle for you then this is the trend to try and while it might look a little full on at first look, once the coloured products are blended together, you'll find that using them over the top of your dark circles and redder areas will actually balance out your complexion to give you a flawless finish.
This isn't actually a new concept in the makeup world and you might actually have seen colour correcting products on sale before as NYX do a great palette featuring loads of shades purposely made to do this, while Kiko do a concealer wheel of multi-coloured pastels that do the same.
Still, this trend is taking things to a whole new level and you only have to look at beauty vlogger Nicol Concilio's vids to see just how she's taking clown contouring as her inspiration.
If you're wondering what crazy colour of concealer to use on what area of your face, the general rules are as follows:
For dull areas of skin - baby pink concealer
For areas of redness - mint green concealer
For dark circles - peach concealer
For sallow and yellow areas - lilac concealer
For purple tones and bruising - yellow concealer
For patchiness on darker skin tones - orange concealers
