Correct Corrector.

MAC Color Corrector If you are a person of color (note: I am referring to anyone who is not caucasian), who struggles with dark circles or dark spots on your face, this post is for you, HOWEVER, dark circles and spots affect MANY people. This is just more prevalent with those of us in the world who have more melanin than others.

When you are trying to perfect your look, it really sucks to not be able to cover the darkMAC Color Corrector marks. I mean, let’s be real. You don’t REALLY want to use a whole bottle of foundation every day when you’re trying to cover up something on your face. There ARE people out there who do use way too much product, but I’ll save that topic for another day. So, what’s a gal (or guy) to do? Try an orange color corrector. Personally, I like MAC Studio and Conceal Color Correct Palette in Dark, because it’s nice and creamy. The orange corrector looks weird (and yes, it looks ORANGE on your face) but after applying with a wedge or concealer brush, and going over it with your concealer and foundation of choice, I guarantee that you will have won your game of hide-n-go-seek with your dark marks.

Benefit Beauty Kiosk at Las Vegas Airport

Benefit Beauty Kiosk at Las Vegas Airport

Recently, I travelled to Las Vegas for my dear friend’s wedding, and almost LITERALLY stumbled when I saw a Benefit Cosmetics kiosk. I had forgotten about these kiosks in the airports.  Why didn’t I pitch this idea years ago? There are so many times that we forget some of our cosmetics while packing for a trip, and it is a fantastic idea to be able to purchase items while you’re in the airport terminals. When I’m packing, sometimes I have to choose between which products will make the TSA cut, and which ones I’ll have to leave behind. This is aggravating on so many levels. But Benefit figured it out, and now people can purchase “travel friendly” sized products!

The average woman is not a professional makeup artist, and may not be able to efficiently and safely pack her cosmetics, which becomes an airport nightmare upon reaching the security gates and scanners. I know better, and yet, there have still been times where I had to repack/recheck foundations, powders, and gels at the last-minute. I love the idea of being able to wait until after I get through security to get my mini-sized cosmetics. So, I’ve copied the list of airports where Benefit kiosks are located! Enjoy!
