But knowing how to achieve that can sometimes feel complicated. So I thought I’d break it down with these makeup essentials. Trust me when I tell you they’ll change the way you do your makeup.

Makeup Essentials: Why You Need Color Correctors

One of the best ways to achieve that is by using one of my favorite products: The Motives Color Correction Quad. Sounds super simple – and, it is. Designed to help you even out your skin tone and correct even the most stubborn blemishes, it’s an essential for your makeup kit and one you soon will not be able to live without. Here’s how it works:

Using the Motives® new Color Correction Guide, you’ll quickly learn how to make the color correction quad your new best friend. Depending on the type of skin you have and what you’d like to correct, you’ll start to see that different colors in the quad will combat different areas of concern.

Start by selecting your concern to learn how to achieve your flawless finish. You can choose from:

  • Dark Circles
  • Redness
  • Dark Spots
  • Dullness

Even though the colors in the quad don’t seem like they’ll even out your skin tone and hide even the most stubborn blemishes – they will! It’s all about using the right combination to achieve the desired effect. And, the best part about this – you’re not just covering your imperfections, you’re correcting them.

By using the simple color correction guide, you’ll learn how to conceal dark circles and discoloration, counteract redness, and brighten dull skin for an instantly-luminous, even-toned complexion. I have to admit, it’s like science and magic came together – because it works like a charm, and it’s the perfect way to prep your face before you move on to foundation.
