How to use color correctors & concealer (ft. ZING! concealer)

(credits: google images)

Ever had a red acne on your face that you couldn't conceal with a concealer, 
and you had to cake so much product on until your face looked like a wrinkly old clown?

痘痘冒出来了!!遮暇膏越打越厚,还是盖不到它!怎么办?!?! 



You're a klutz, always accidentally knocking into objects such as the side of the table, the wall, 
bruising yourself is a part of your everyday life for years. 
You would love to wear a pair of shorts out, but the bruises makes people turn their heads at you while you're walking around.

呜呜~ 走路一直撞到东西,满身黑青, 好丑啊~
可是我真的很想穿穿短裙,美美的出门啊~

 our old enemy :- 
DARK EYE CIRCLES! Which you can never find a way to conceal!


我们的天敌:-
黑眼圈!! 它怎么一直出来啊~! 遮不到它! 救命啊!




Going for a job interview/ wedding, but you have a tattoo that you really wish it wasn't there.


要去面试!婚礼派对! 不过有个太显眼的纹身.... 

If you have a "hell yes!" on any of the above, read on! :D

如果有说中你的心声,就读下去吧! =D

***********************************************

So last week (yes I spent a week finishing this post. lol), it finally arrived! 
What arrived? THE ZING! CONCEALER!!  
I ordered a dozen of these products about 2 months ago from the U.S and it was finally shipped 
and poslaju-ed to me! I have a friend that is a MUA, her mom sells makeup that she sources from the U.S, Canada, Taiwan.  
She introduced me to this awesome concealer of hers that she uses on her clients and herself. 


The ZING! Concealer!


上个星期, (我花了一个星期写这个乁, 要慢慢读喔!) 它终于到了!
啥到了啊? ZING! 遮遐盘到了! 
2个月前我从美国订购了一打ZING! 遮遐盘, 它终于坐船来了~! 
我有个在海外做化妆师的朋友, 她的妈妈是卖从美国,加拿大,还有台弯这三个主要国家拿化妆来卖的.  她介绍我她自己本身用,还有用在客户身上的ZING! 遮遐盘.





************************************************
What is a color corrector? 什么是color corrector啊? 
************************************************
(credits, google images)

color corrector's look like concealers. whether they are in a pot form or palette form. 
But color corrector's come in colors like, green, lavender, yellow, blue, all those funky colors. 
Color corrector's are mostly used to neutralize flaws on your face or body like bruises, veins, portwine stain, dark eye circles, acne, etc. So that you wouldn't need to cake on concealer+ foundation to your problem areas until it looks wrinkly and cakey. 
Using Color correctors are like using concealers. They're used at areas only if you need them. 
And I wouldn't say that each color corrector only works at certain areas, as we all have different skin colors & problem areas ,understanding both of that and experimenting with the colors would be an added plus whilst makeup application. 


*我不是很清楚color corrector华文叫啥, 就叫它"彩色调整膏"吧. = =" *
彩色调整膏看起来就像遮瑕膏,质感,形状,包装,都很像.  区别在于彩色调整膏的颜色都比较奇怪,例如青色,紫色,黄色,蓝色.  彩色调整膏通常都是用于调整/遮身体或脸部表面的瑕疵, 例如黑青, 血管太明显, 黑眼圈, 红肿,痘痘, 等等. 平常如果你有痘痘冒出来,用遮瑕膏拍在脸上拍得很厚很不自然, 如果用彩色调整膏的话,效果会很不一样! 


彩色调整膏的方法差不多就跟用遮瑕膏一样.就是只用在需要到它的地方. 也不可以说一种彩色调整膏的颜色只能用于某个特定的地方, 因为我们的肤色, 问题瑕疵都是不同的. 了解了那两点, 还有尝试者各种颜色在你皮肤上显示的效果, 上妆的时候能为你的气色加分~

Alright, now you've got an idea of what a color corrector is,
I would like to introduce you girls to the COLOR WHEEL. 

好啦,现在你大概知道什么是彩色调整膏之后,
现在要跟介绍给你 彩色轮盘!



(credits, google images)

Now, take a good look at the color wheel as this is important as understanding the color wheel makes it easier for you to neutralize the flaw that you're trying to color correct.Neutralizing the colors that are OPPOSITE of each other on the color wheel.
For instance, green neutralizes red, yellow neutralizes violet, orange neutralizes blue; and so on. 
K I know you're a bit confused here, and wondering why the heck am I making you read the color wheel like  your art class teacher, but read on and I shall try my best to un-blur you with pictures!

mm们好好的看一眼彩色轮盘喔, 很重要滴~! 当你有个要用彩色调整膏来抵消的瑕疵的时候也会比较容易. 在彩色轮盘上, X色正对面的颜色是跟X色相抵的.
比如说, 青色,抵消红色. 黄色抵消紫色, 橙色抵消蓝色, 等等. 
嗯.你好像有一点乱料. 不过读下去吧, 我会尽量的放图片让你清楚一些!

************************************************
ACNE  痘痘
*************************************************



For instance, red tones on the skin, (blemishes, zits, red blotches)
And if you've read the color wheel earlier, you should notice that opposite of red in the color wheel, is green!


比如说呢~ 皮肤上的红色色调 (红斑, 痘痘, 粉刺),  
如果你刚刚有看好彩色轮盘, 你可能有印象, 红色对面的颜色,是青色!



So using your ring finger, dab some green color corrector and pat it onto your problem area, and BLEND it out.
You can choose either to pat on a coat of concealer of your skin tone or foundation. 

用你的无名指, 点些青色的彩色调整膏然后拍在你的问题部位. 然后往外拍均应它.
你可以选择在拍了彩色调整膏的部位上拍上多一层遮瑕膏或者粉底液. 



I choose to pat on one more coat of concealer using the color M-1, then set it with a translucent powder. 
And wallah! Red toned problem area solved! Without any Photoshop needed! All by using color correctors
 My brother looks like he has no "moon holes" in his face! 
(yes the model is a guy if you were wondering. hehe)  


我选择拍多一曾遮暇膏. 用着ZING! 的 M-1颜色, 然后再在上面打一层透明粉. 
然后~~DENG DENG DENG~ 发红的地方就不见啦~~
也不用p图! 只用彩色调整膏就行了~ 
我弟弟的脸看起来滑滑的吧! 连洞都一起不见了! 呵呵!



Here is another sample of using green colored corrector ONLY,
 to neutralize out the redness of an insect bite. See how the green corrector instantly neutralizes the redness? 

再给你们看一个用青色彩色调整膏的例子来抵消昆虫叮咬的红肿. 
青色直接抵消了红色了呢!


IMPORTANT NOTE:- When using color correctors, make sure that the area that you're color correcting is 
permanent or semi-permanent.
 Meaning, that if you have a patch of redness on your face, you know that it is going to go away in an hour, DO NOT color correct it, as when the redness subsides, it will leave a green blotch on your face. 
IF you have like, a pimple that has been there for a few days and you know that it is STILL going to be there throughout the day, by all means color correct it! =D

注意:- 当你使彩色调整膏的时候,要肯定你使用的那个暇疵,是长期在那边的,或者连续几天在那边. 比如说, 如果你脸上有一小块发热而起的红斑, 多一个小时就会不见的话, 就别用彩色调整膏在它上面. 因为当那小快红斑退掉了之后,就会在脸上看到很像有一个小青块. 
如果你有粒青春痘在脸上很多天了,你也知道它应该还会在那边多几天, 那就可以用彩色调整膏喔~ 

************************************************
BRUISES
*************************************************




Next up, BRUISES! 
Now as I don't encounter domestic violence, of course I don't have any bruises on my face. 
I do have a few patches of bruises on my legs though, as I have been going to pole dancing classes recently.
I have a liking for skirts and shorts, plus my skin is fair, 
peeps could instantly notice the bruises on my legs from afar,
what do I do? COLOR CORRECT OF COURSE!

Now, I'm going to show you 2 ways to conceal bruises, one way is by using a color corrector, and the other by using a pinkish toned concealer. 

If you look at the color wheel that I've posted above just now, the color that neutralizes violet is yellow, and the color that neutralizes blue is orange. But it is very hard to find a pure orange concealer, so it's fine to subsitute it for a salmon/ pinkish tone concealer instead. 

现在是黑青~ 
最近我都大爱练钢管舞, 所以脚+手满多黑青的. 
然后我皮肤比较偏白, 个人又满喜欢穿短裤/裙的, 
远远就会看到我"伤痕累累"料! 
还能做啥? 当然是~
彩色调整膏咯~

现在来跟大家分享下2重方法来遮黑青. 一个是 用彩色调整膏,一个是用带点肉粉红色的遮遐膏.

仔细看我上面po的彩色轮盘, 能抵消紫色的是黄色, 能抵消蓝色的是橙色. 
不过要找到一个纯橙色的遮遐膏很难, 所以用肉粉红色的遮遐膏是ok的. :)




1st picture :- I have used concealer color P-1 to conceal half of my bruise. As you can see it instantly covers the bruise up. 

2nd picture:- I have fully covered my bruise. Why there is a patch of pinkish patch there? 
Because my skin tone is fair, and the concealer is a tad darker colored than my skin tone, so even though it does cover up my bruise nicely, I will still need to take a foundation that is my skin tone color to go over it and set it with powder. 

3rd & 4th picture, went over the bruised area with foundation and set it with powder. 

第一张照片:- 我用了遮遐膏颜色P-1来遮我一半的黑青, 看得出整个黑青就酱不见了一半.

第二张:- 已经遮完了整个黑青了. 不过为什么还是有一块痕迹在那边呢? 
因为我的皮肤颜色偏白, 然后遮遐膏的颜色比我皮肤的颜色暗1/2号; 虽然已经把我的黑青遮完了, 我还是需要拿点我肤色的粉底液/ 松粉拍上去让它定色.

第三&四张:- 已经把粉底液跟松粉拍上去了.

For me, patting the yellow color corrector over my bruise works BEST for me. 
as you can see a little goes a long way. That was how much of product I've used to cover the bruise!  The yellow totally neutralized the bruise and made it unknown to the eye without any 
foundation or concealer! Me likey! =D

Same goes for tattoos, 
You can use either of these 2 ways to conceal your tats as well! 
here is a my tutorial of how to conceal tattoos by using a concealer/ color corrector :- 


对我来说, 把彩色调整膏盖过我的黑青是最方便的;
你也可以看到遮掉整个黑青用一点点彩色调整膏就行了, 
黄色直接把黑青的紫色色素给抵消了!

遮纹身也一样喔! 
你可以用这2种方式来遮纹身, 
这是我的遮纹身教学.:-

DARK EYE CIRCLES  黑眼圈
************************************************* 



As you  can see here, obvious dark eye circles. 
There are a few ways of concealing or color correcting dark eye circles. 
I shall go through them and you can decide for yourself which one works best for you. 

黑眼圈很黑很明显对吧? 
有几种用遮遐膏+ 彩色调色膏遮黑眼圈的方法, 
现在跟大家分享几个, 然后MM们自己试试看有帮到你们吗~ ^^


Using color correctors.
彩色调色膏


As the skin tone of everyone is different, so is the color shade of the dark eye circle. 
I wouldn't say that you must use X color corrector or X colored concealer to combat dark eye circles, so if you have different color correctors, play around with the colors until you find a color that combats it best. 


由于每个人的肤色不一样, 黑眼圈的暗沉度也不一样. 
也不能说你一定要用彩色调色膏X或者遮遐膏X来遮黑眼圈, 
所以如果你有不用颜色的彩色调色膏, 你可以试试哪一个颜色最适合抵消你黑眼圈的颜色.


Frequently used color correctors on dark eye circles :-
-通常会使用在黑眼圈上的 彩色调色膏:-


Yellow corrector used to conceal bluish bruises, under-eye circles and mild red tones on the face.  a little more of a deeper yellow pigment which will counteract the bluish/purple color under your eyes.

黄色彩色调色膏 用来抵消带蓝紫色的黑青, 黑眼圈, 还有脸上稍微乏红的地方. 
多一些黄能抵消你黑眼圈下的蓝紫色.

Lavender concealer: Used to normalize yellow-colored skin imperfections such as sallow complexions and yellow bruises. It can also help conceal VERY dark under-eye circles and dark spots on bronze skin tones. 


紫色彩色调色膏: 用来抵消偏黄皮肤的遐疵, 比方说脸部呈现蜡黄的地方, 还有带黄的黑青.
还 能用这个颜色的彩色调色膏来遮黑眼圈很严重的眼圈,还有皮肤比较褐的人脸上的暗斑.

Using Concealers
用遮遐膏

Choose a color that's one shade lighter than your normal color if your dark circles are blue-black. If, on the other hand, if you have problems with puffiness as well as dark circles, go one shade darker than your usual color.

如果你的黑眼圈比较带紫/蓝,选个比你肤色亮1号的颜色, 
如果你的眼睛浮肿,又有黑眼圈, 选择比你肤色暗1号的颜色.

What works for me :- 
个人喜爱的方式:-

Using the color Y-1, (which is 1 shade lighter than my skin tone), I have applied the concealer to my dark eye circles in a patting motion. And there, no more panda eyes! =D
