How to Use Color Correctors to Cover Up Dark Circles and Hyperpigmentation

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that concealer is the most game-changing product in your makeup bag. When sleep sounds like a luxury because busy is your default state, beauty products that give you a "fake it till you make it" slash "I have my shit together" (but I really don't) glow become your best friend. You might wake up with designer bags underneath your eyes and a blemish or two that showed up unannounced, but that's where color correctors come in. These concealers are available in an array of shades suited for all skin tones that conceal blemishes, cover up dark circles, hide hyperpigmentation, brighten your complexion, give your skin the ultimate sculpting effect for a snatched contour, and more. 

Color correctors can feel quite intimidating if you're unsure how to use them, especially because many of them come in unexpected rainbow colors that don't look like they belong on your face. Their purpose it to cancel out dark circles and dark spots. Trust, I've gone on and on and on about my dark spots in the past. The thing is, I spend so much time taking care of my skin, but I still suffer from hyperpigmentation. So when I want a flawless foundation look, color correctors cover up my problem areas like pure magic. 

I tapped pro makeup artists to lay out the full guide on color-correcting dark circles and hyperpigmentation. Glamsquad's New York regional makeup expert Lauren Lebowitz and celebrity makeup artist Jenna Kristina of The Wall Group explain exactly how to color-correct correctly to address these skin concerns below.
