Corrector Colours Information
Correction is the process of neutralising unwanted colours from the skin. Unwanted colours can include redness due to sunburn, acne redness, bruising, tattoos and dark circles under the eyes.
There are 10 Correctors available in two sizes. Individual sizes come in a flip top, mirrored compact with a net weight of 18 oz./5 gm. All Correctors are also available in a refill size for the palettes at .11 oz./3 gm. Because of the variety of uses in Correctors there is no correction number of applications listed.
Ingredients usage in DMKC’s Corrector Colours:
DMK Cosmetics corrector colours as well as the Foundations are made from the exact same formula. This is done to ensure blending and mixing can be done with ease and technical balance. For the detailed ingredients and listings please see the DMK Cosmetics Foundation Application Section.
Tech Tip: HiLites and LoLites can be used to lighten the intensity of a colour. Use Yellow HiLite to lighten and LoLite 2 Espresso to darken. Mix the colours in with the Foundation on the DMKC Palette.
Steps for Neutralising on the face
- Take a very small amount of the correct DMKC Neutralizer and place on the DMKC Palette.
- Select the correct DMKC Corrector Brush.
- Load the Corrector Brush with a small amount of DMKC Corrector.
- With light strokes, start applying the DMKC Corrector to the area to be concealed.
- When the area has been successfully neutralised, cover with DMKC HD Translucent Powder. For powdering directions please see Powdering Section in this manual.
- Apply Foundation.
Note: Sometimes you may be neutralising skin tones that require two Neutralizers, e.g. bruises. Remember, depending on the age of the bruise, it may be both red and blue in colour (purple tones). Keeping the basic principles of basic correction in mind, first neutralise the red colours out of the area, and then neutralise the blue colours out of the area. You may need a very light touch of DMKC HD Translucent Powder between layers.
|Yellow HiLite C2010YH1
Is used not only as a HiLite for olive skin tones, but can be added with lighter Foundations to remove redness or to add yellow to a Foundation. Because the Yellow HiLite is a lighter colour, it will lighten the Foundation as well.
|Orange HiLite C2010OH1
Is used to highlight underneath the eye and to accentuate planes (or areas) on the face. It is also used to lighten and/ or conceal blueness due to its orange base tone colour.
|Pink HiLite C2010PH1
Used primarily to highlight under the eyes and accentuate areas on the face with skin tones in the coral to coral pink range, Pink HiLite will also neutralise browns and extended dark earthy colours on the face.
|Special Dark HiLite C2010DH1
Used primarily as a highlight to accent darker skin tones. It can also be used to subtly darken lighter Foundations as well as adding slight warmth to medium to medium-dark Foundation.
|LoLite 1 – Café C2010NC1
Used mostly as a contour colour for all light skin tones, it can also be used to darken Foundation colours without adding any secondary colour characteristics like ruddy, olive, yellow or blueness.
|LoLite 2 – Espresso C2010NC2
Used mostly as a contour colour for all dark skin tones, it can also be used to darken Foundation colours without adding any secondary colour characteristics like ruddy, olive, yellow or blueness.
|Red Corrector 1 C2010RN1
Used for neutralising harsh redness from lighter to medium light skin tones. It can also be used to remove redness from Foundation colours.
|Red Corrector 2 C2010RN2
Used for neutralising redness in light to medium dark skin tones. It can also be used to remove redness from Foundation colours without lightening.
|Blue Corrector 1 C2010BN1

|Blue Corrector 2 C2010BN2
Used to neutralise blueness on lighter skin tones and to add coral warmth to light skin tones.
Tech Tip: All DMK Correctors can be added to Foundation mixing to increase or decrease the value and hue of the colour. Use a Red Corrector in a Foundation too ruddy to reduce the redness. Be careful, too much in a darker Foundation will reduce redness as well as lighten the colour.
