The Best Color Corrector for Every Skin Concern

Three colors and types of CC+ cream by It Cosmetics in original,  oil-ree matte and illumination.

The Best Color Corrector for Every Skin Concern

Ask any makeup artist what the secret weapon is for achieving a more even skin tone, and they’ll likely say color correcting makeup. That’s because with the right color corrector, you can instantly neutralize and conceal any type of skin discoloration, including dark under-eye circles, sun spots, redness from acne or rosacea—the list goes on! Knowing these are top concerns for so many of you, we made it our mission at IT Cosmetics to develop the best color corrector out there. The result: CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ (The “CC” stands for color correcting, after all!). Now the #1 CC Cream in America*, it’s just one way we honor our commitment to truly give you your skin but better. Discover which CC+ Cream is right for your skin concerns, plus more of our color-correcting makeup must-haves.

Best Color Corrector For Blemishes & Blackheads

When trying to minimize these telltale signs of oily or acne-prone skin, you definitely want to avoid using any kind of makeup that can lead to clogged pores or unwanted shine. CC+ Cream Oil-Free Matte with SPF 40 is a great option. In addition to delivering color-correcting full coverage with a matte finish, it’s infused with charcoal to detoxify, colloidal clay to absorb excess oil, and tea tree extract to combat blemishes.

Best Color Corrector for Dark Spots and Other Types of Hyperpigmentation

Genetics, sun damage and the natural aging process can all lead to darkened patches of facial skin, aka hyperpigmentation. The good news is that you can easily create a brighter, more even-looking skin tone with the right color corrector. For your most flawless finish, you’ll want to use a highly pigmented foundation that delivers hydrating full coverage. You can’t go wrong with our original CC+ Cream, and we also recommend CC+ Cream Illumination with SPF 50+ for added radiance.

Best Color Corrector For Redness

Sensitive skin issues often show up in the form of redness. In search of a solution for her own rosacea, IT Cosmetics founder Jamie Kern Lima developed a neutralizing color-correcting cream that starts its life as a skin-soothing moisturizer and delivers long-wearing full coverage for all types of facial redness. If powder foundation is your preference, we’ve got you covered there too! Just like the cream, the talc-free powder is infused with colloidal oatmeal and aloe, known for their anti-inflammatory properties.

Best Color Corrector for Dark Circles

Trying to hide that new-mom exhaustion or the “I stayed up too late watching true crime documentaries” look? Then you’ll want to find a concealer that not only erases the look of dark circles but also works to visibly brighten your entire eye area, too. Available in 12 true-to-skin shades, Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Anti-Aging Concealer delivers waterproof full coverage, plus proprietary Drops of Light Technology™ to give you a wide-awake, luminous look that lasts.

Okay, so now you know all about the best color correctors for your skin concerns. But are you using the right moisturizer? Check out this helpful guide.
