Best Cruelty Free Color Correctors

Best Cruelty Free Color Correctors

It’s a Makeup Wars Monday! Today I’m sharing the best cruelty free color correctors that I’ve tried. The color correcting trend is hot right now, but it’s not a new concept. I think some people have taken it to the extreme! For me, I’m mostly worried about toning down redness on my face from rosacea and hiding discoloration around the eyes.

Best Cruelty Free Color Correctors

PR + purchased by me.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid is pretty amazing. They have 5 shades available and I bought Mint. Mint is good for countering redness.

  • Mint – reduces redness
  • Peach – masks circles or dark spots
  • Lavender – balances sallowness
  • Yellow – corrects dullness
  • Pink – brightens dark areas

In the video above I demo how I use Mint and how well it works for me. (See my review)

Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid in Mint is truly amazing to me. It’s the first green product to actually work well at neutralizing redness for me. I apply it under foundation.

My other concern is countering discoloration around the eyes.

The Kat Von D Lock-It Color Correcting Eyeshadow Primer is good for countering darkness around the eyes. I bought shade Fair, which is a great match for my pale skin. It’s an ultra pale peachy pink. It comes in 5 different colors – Fair, Light, Medium, Tan and Deep. This is a very dry product that is pigmented. (see my review)

Urban Decay Eden is also great for reducing redness around the eyes. It’s a pale light beige on my skintone. I can wear this on its own or just apply UD Walk of Shame on top.

If I’ve got particularly bad dark circles under my eyes I just reach for Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer in Fair Neutral. (vegan) My beauty blender lets me apply a light layer without any issues, and helps prevent creasing if I set it with a setting powder.

So these are the color correcting products I use.

The way that I apply my face makeup if I’m using a color corrector is like this:

For those of you who want to delve deeper into color correcting, I’ve got some additional recommendations.

  • Cover FX Correct Click Sticks – Available in 6 shades for light, medium and deep skintones. Green (for intense redness), Yellow (for mild redness), Lavender (neutralizes yellow and brightens), Peach (neutralizes darkness for light), Orange (neutralizes darkness for medium), Brick (neutralizes darkness for deep). (vegan)
  • BECCA Under Eye Brightening Concealer – peach to counter undereye circles.
  • BECCA Backlight Targeted Colour Corrector – Pistachio (neutralize redness), Violet (neutralizes dullness), Peach (neutralizes dark spots), Papaya (neutralizes deep blues and greens)
  • Besame Brightening Face Powder – Violet (correct yellow and red tones), Rose (corrects green and blue tones), Vanilla and French Vanilla (corrects redness), Vanilla Chai (corrects redness in dark skintones)
  • Nyx Color Correcting Concealer Palette – has a yellow, mint, lavender, pink and 2 contour shades.
  • Essence Say No To – Dark Circles (pink), Redness (green) and Imperfections (yellow)

  • This is a I’m so glad I found this post. I’ve been trying to replace the products I use regularly and need replacing. I need a good undereye corrector and concealer. I was using the nyx one but the buildup caused creasing. I will definitely be checking out the UD and Essence. Thank you.

  • I never even thought of a color correcting eye primer! I look for full coverage because I have such thin eyelids, but a color corrector is what I should be using. Great picks!

  • I haven’t stepped into the territory of color correctors… the thought of using a mint colored product has me thinking I’m going to turn green! 😉

  • I only thought about the colored ones but I’d be nowhere without the concealing ones too. UD is a stand out in this field.

  • I don’t do much color correcting. I just use green occasionally on my nose and cheeks for redness. If I have dark eye circles from lack of sleep, I’ll use Too Faced Shadow Insurance in Lemon Drop as primer and undereye concealer. It works really well for me.

  • My only problem with color correcting concealers is that it takes a lot of application & blending to get the result I want. And then my makeup always looks cakey in those areas…
