WE HAVE RECEIVED COUNTLESS MESSAGES ABOUT OUR MORTICIAN'S
SHOW PALETTE, FROM "YOU'RE A GENIUS" FROM INDUSTRY PRO ARTISTS, TO
"THATS NOT WHAT MY COLOR CORRECTOR LOOKS LIKE!" LET US DIG DEEPER...
A color corrector?
Color correcting, in
short, is a technique used to correct skin tone issues including, but not
limited to, redness, dullness, dark and light spots, etc.
Red/pink brightens dull
Orange/peach brightens medium/dark skin
Yellow brightens light/medium skin tones
Green calms redness
Violet/blue combats yellow spots
Why not cream based? I am use to
working with color correctors and this is way different.
To put it simply…it's cakey. I don’t
know how we have gone this long packing on the product. It's not good for the
skin. If you have to color correct every day or work on set with a color
corrector with clients that require it every day, their (or your) skin will pay
for it in the long run. Too much product over time will cause adverse reactions
to your skin, in our experience. Your skin needs to be able to breathe. When
you layer, layer, and layer (standard example: cream base color corrector,
concealer, foundation, blush/bronze/contour, then set it with a powder), It's
simply too much for your face to breathe over an extended period of time. Our
colors are not cream based and they would be identified as a powder if we had
to name them. However, they are built different. They feel different and apply
like stained glass. They are formulated this way to be buildable in order to
conceal your desired areas.
Okay, but how do you apply it?
We apply the correcting shades to the
desired areas with a fluffy brush on a cleansed, prepped face. We have to reiterate;
we built this palette with NO RULES to it. However, you asked so we will tell
you how we personally work with it. We use it under foundation. The pigments
will not wipe away. That is the beauty of our formula. The hues will stay on
your skin and will not be blended off like a standard powder would, which is
why most pros go straight for the cream base color correctors. We took away that
issue and solved two problems at once. You get the light weight color
correction without the cakey weight and feel, and your skin will thank you for
You built your model based off of
the techniques of embalming fluids of morticians for dead people?
