Color wheel and Concealing

Ladies get to to know this color wheel. Unlike the one we used to hold and blow when we were kids, this one's super crucial for looking your best. Even when u feel like *rap! Im a pro at concealing cuz I look like *rap on most mornings. I have 2 kids under 10..and Im like a chicken w/o its head most times. What keeps me sane may seem shallow to some. But looking good is something Ive held at high importance since having my precious bratz! If I look good I feel good. Of course I try to eat and sleep right, but  mother nature needs some help to help my face lol! ;p Back to this color wheel. Study it well..notice the colors..dont get hypnotized.
A circular diagram of the color spectrum, the color wheel is made of pie slices of green, blue, purple, red, orange, and yellow.
You select the color on the wheel opposite the one you want to conceal, and apply a camouflage makeup of that opposite color.
Instantaneously and perfectly, you have just camouflaged the spot you wanted to hide through the use of colors on the color wheel.
For example, if you are left after laser surgery with a purple bruise, applying a yellow-based makeup will conceal the bruise and leave the skin looking close to its normal color. (This is because the color opposite purple on the color wheel is yellow.)
There are many products out there that wok well for correcting before you do anything you must correct the problem! No matter how much concealer you put on a dark circle, it must be corrected before being covered, same with a red pimple etc.
Whether you prefer cream, liquid, or my personal fav mineral makeup which is powder. If you use the color wheel and counteract your problem, you can look flawless.

Some products worth trying:
Bobbi Brown corrector

Amazing Cosmetics Concealer (love this)
Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer- Works great

Physicians Formula Corrector- 3 colors snapped together (yellow, peach and highlight) found at Walgreens or other drug stores.
Mineral Wear® Talc-Free Mineral Correcting Concealer

Concealer Twins® 2-in-1 Correct & Cover Cream Concealer

Physicians Formula: Concealer Twins 2-in-1 Correct & Cover Cream Concealer

My favorite: Mineral Powder
Everyday Minrals: Abbots perk me up and tons more go to
Silk Naturals has a bunch of correctors
La Minerals
Signature has correctors too

Its always key to exfoliate then moisturize and suncreen at least SPF 30, then prime your face, even if its dry. Your canvas (skin) must be prepared in order to paint (makeup)! lol
