Following on from the infamous Naked Skin Full Coverage Concealers, Urban Decay have released Color Correcting Fluids. Color correcting is a step in makeup application that people often leave out or maybe they don't know about it or how it works. I have been using a few of them pretty much daily the past few weeks and I am loving them.

I was sent out the green, lavender and peach color correcting fluids to try out. I have to say the far exceeded any expectations I had of them. I have always included a green concealer as part of my makeup routine but the lavender and peach were new to me. 

Personally I prefer to use color correcters under my foundation however the past few weeks I have seen some people apply it over foundation. At first I found it a little odd but hey whatever works! There are absolutely no rules when it comes to makeup so play around with the color correcting fluids and find which method works for you. When I use them I apply a small amount of my color correcting fluid to the effected area/areas and bounce it into my skin with either a damp beauty blender or a dense stippling brush.

Drawing on my own experience if you have redness on your skin the only way to hide it is by using a green concealer. You can apply a regular concealer and a foundation 'til the cows come home but eventually it will break down and the redness will fight it's way back through. The Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid in the green shade is really lightweight on the skin while at the same time gives insane coverage. For overall redness, you can mix the green color correcting fluid with your favourite primer for effective but subtle correction.

As a result of being a mammy to a very active toddler I often have really bad dark circles under my eyes. Sometimes they are so bad they are almost blue!! Normally I would just use a really light concealer on top of my foundation and it always worked well but this peach color corrector under my foundation just gives that extra bit of coverage and longevity. It can also be used for dark spots, veins and deep discoloration.

Last but not least is the lavender color correcting fluid which balances out any sallowness while also helping to neutralize skin with a yellow undertone. 

In addition to the above there is also a yellow and a pink color correcter. The yellow corrects dullness making it ideal for concealing purple-hued dark circles or for brightening a lackluster complexion. The pink color correcting fluid brightens dark areas particularly on fairer skin tones. It can also be used as a highlighter as it creates a lifted appearance.

The Urban Decay Color Correcting Fluids are available now from House Of Fraser, Debenhams and www.debenhams.ie. They retail at €22.00 each.
