Master the Art of Pro Color Correction and Contouring with Max Factor

Face artistry

Pro Color Correcting has emerged as one of the biggest trends to hit the beauty world as part of creating the perfect face make-up result. With a long history behind understanding facial features, and the science behind color harmony, color correcting has now become a vital part for make-up techniques to create a flawless look.

The secret to mastering the flawless face look goes beyond just highlighting and defining, it lies in creating an even skin tone and a flawless base as the canvas. Using Max Factor products and incorporating colour correction into your make-up routine, you are now able to conquer color correcting, contouring and highlighting and create a statement look in a few steps.

Step 1: Correct and perfect any skin discoloration and imperfections with Max Factor’s Colour Corrector Sticks

Use the specially designed, easy to apply and define, CC Sticks to achieve neutral and even skin tone. Each stick is carefully crafted to tackle specific problem areas; apply the Green CC Stick to neutralize any redness on the face, the Pink CC Stick to even out dark spots in lighter skin tones and use the Yellow CC Stick to hide dark under eye circles. Be sure to blend well to ensure the skin tone is balanced.

Step 2: Create a flawless, matte foundation base

After colour correcting, apply Max Factor’s Facefinity All Day Flawless Foundation to the face and neck to achieve an all over, high coverage, matte base. Acting as a moisturizer, primer and foundation, this 3-in-1 product guarantees a consistent matte finish and is perfect to use before contouring.

Step 3: Perfecting contouring and highlighting

Contour using the Panstik in Cool Bronze 97, and highlight using Panstik True Beige 12 to achieve a defined look with contoured features. Firstly, apply Cool Bronze 97 to the apples of the cheeks and t-zone to contour. Then add True Beige 12 to highlight under the eyes, along the cheekbones and through the t-zone. Next, using a brush, blend the product well into the skin to perfect a seamless contoured look.

Step 4: Sculpt and define for a finishing touch

Finish the look by adding Max Factor’s Crème Puff Blush to enhance the skin tone by blending the blush over the cheeks. The soft and light velvety texture allows easy application and brings the full look to life.

All of the products used to create the above look are available now in store at Max Factor approved retailers.
