I recently bought Wet n Wild’s “CoverALL Correcting Palette” interested in what correctors are and what they do.

I already knew that the color “Green” cancels out any redness. I have Maybelline’s Cover Stick Corrector Concealer in Green and I use it mostly for random pimples that may be red and irritated. Green correctors are also good for people with redness from acne, rosacea, and pretty much any other redness you would have. Maybelline Cover Stick Corrector Concealer
