Was recently watching an episode on a Taiwan beauty program and the topic was on selecting the right colour primer.
Primers have only become popular in the past couple of years and the beauty industry has responded with more selections and variety. However, do you get confused when you see all the colours that are available? Green, blue, pink, purple, I sometimes get confused.
The lovely makeup artist Kevin posted up a board on his blog that he used in the show that splits out what colour you should use for the different types of problems that we might have.
Skintone Primer colour
Fair to very fair ~ transparent or skin colour
Yellowish/dull ~ transparent + purple
Dark ~ skin colour
Unevenness ~ skin colour + purple
Redness/pimple scars ~ skin colour + green
Freckles ~ skin colour + transparent + blue
Dark and freckles ~ skin colour + blue
Or use this colour wheel, just pick the colour on the opposite side of the wheel to correct the colour you have.
