Rimmel London Insta Conceal & Correct Palette

For Redness: Green Colour Corrector

Because green is opposite red on the colour wheel, this shade of concealer is perfect if your skin is looking flames - for all the wrong reasons.

Target angry blemishes and hormonal breakouts with an on-the-spot treatment. Insta Conceal and Correct Palette has got all your colour correcting needs handled. Like a ‘concealer wardrobe’ for your skin, it holds three key cream colour correctors: green, lavender and peach.

Dot and blend the green shade directly onto blemishes and around the nose, then lightly buff with a soft, fluffy brush or fingers to leave a neutral base for foundation and concealer application in your next step.

For larger areas of redness, like rosacea or flushed cheeks, apply a small amount of Insta CC Primer in Green onto skin using fingertips. Blend well before smoothing foundation on top for a flawless finish. Match Perfection Foundation feels super-lightweight and layers perfectly with other products.

For Dullness: Lavender Colour Corrector

Bye, dullness! A lavender colour corrector has sallow skin, sorted. Erase yellow tones around the eyes, brows and mouth with a lightening, brightening purple pigment.

The lavender shade in Insta Conceal and Correct Palette is an instant brightener. Use fingertips to soften the creamy formula, then dot onto sallow-toned areas of the face, like around the eyes, brows and mouth. Lightly blend to blur and brighten, illuminating and neutralising dullness in one.

For an extra pick-me-up, smooth Insta CC Primer in Lavender on the middle of the forehead, the centre of the nose and around the mouth and chin. Then, after foundation, sweep Insta Fix and Matte Powder along the t-zone. It’s so flattering, it’s a little like the Valencia filter IRL.

For Fatigue: Peach Colour Corrector

If getting eight hours of sleep is a no-go, a peach colour corrector will change your life.

Smooth the peachy shade from Insta Conceal and Correct Palette under eyes to lift dark circles. For eye bags bigger than your Ibiza-bound suitcase, try applying the colour corrector in an upside-down triangle below your lash line, with the tip of the triangle pointing to the centre of your cheeks. Pat and blend with fingers until tired eyes look fresh and bright.

For pigmentation and skin discolouration, smooth Insta CC Primer in Peach all over. This shade also works wonders to blend away any green or blueish veins on warmer-toned skins. Layer your favourite foundation over the top, then finish with a touch of Insta Strobing Highlighter on cheeks to light up your complexion.
