The Color-Correcting Primer That Improves the Look of Foundation
By Elise Minton Tabin , Executive Beauty Editor |
When it comes to makeup, there’s just so much out there and it’s hard to know what is what and what you really need to use. Case in point: color-correcting makeup, primers and concealers. In theory, you would think they all do the same thing—cover up imperfections—but the reality is that each one serves a different purpose. And that means applying three separate products in addition to whatever else it is that you use in your makeup routine.

All that is about to change—well at least some of it. Enter Lancôme Miracle CC Cushion Color Correcting Primer ($40), a one-of-a-kind product that does so much more than your average makeup.
Available in four different shades—pick peach to combat dull skin and create a healthy glow; purple to cancel out grayness in your skin; yellow for an overall polished look; or green to neutralize redness—the primer, which is preloaded in the compact where it’s housed in the sponge, evens out your skin for perfect-looking makeup. But, that’s not all this problem-solver does. It’s lightweight, so you won’t feel like the formula is too heavy on your skin, and it also cools on contact to reduce redness and inflammation while adding moisture. Whether you use it all over or spot-treat a problem area, its light-reflecting pigments leave skin with a subtle glow.
