Correct like a pro



To me, a flawless base is essential. You want to have the best layer down for the rest of your makeup to go on top of and colour correctors seem to be a good way to go about this. I'm actually new to the world of correcting concealers and this one by Freedom is the first I'd ever tried, safe to say though that I'm completely on board the correcting train with this little product.


The kit comes in fairly sturdy clear packaging meaning you can see the colours easily and contains six shades, a yellow, purple, green, peach, brown and white shimmery shade.
Freedom Pro says:
Yellow: Use to equalise blue undertones, sometimes found on the eyelid or under eye area.
Lilac: Use to add radiance to dull skin.
Green: Use to balance redness, mainly found around the nose or around blemishes.
Peach: This peachy shade is great at helping cancel out green tones.
Brown: Use to conceal blemishes on darker skin tones or as a contouring cream on lighter skin.
White: Use to brighten or to highlight key areas of your skin such as the top of your cheekbones



The consistency of the concealers is quite thick meaning you don't need much or else you'll be blending it out for days. Remember your foundation has still got too go on top of it so don't apply it so thick that still shows under the rest of your makeup.


I have tested each of the colours on their targeted areas and they all do as they are supposed to, the only one I'm not so keen on is the white shade which is used to highlight your skin as I don't think it does much and is slightly unnecessary. There are way better products to help you get your glow on!!


As well as this palette being good for anyone wanting to try colour correcting, it would also be the perfect addition to any makeup artist kit as it looks professional, is super affordable at £5 and does the job perfectly!


I'd love to know if colour correcting is part of your makeup routine. thanks for reading.

  1. I found out about color correcting a few months ago. I like to color correct redness. I use a green stick from maybelline that gets the job done. Then, I also like to color correct my undereyes.

  2. I've always been a bit scared of using corrector as I'm worried I'll end up with a bad rainbow effect and never know which colour is right for each problem but this has really helped! Loved the break down of the colours!
