So we were bemused when we saw that green foundation is actually what produces the best results.
Watch the video below.
Instead of looking like Shrek, TikToker Christine Abraham was pleasantly surprised when the green tinted BB serum left her skin clear and smooth – almost as if she wasn’t wearing make-up at all.
And fellow beauty obsessives were desperate to purchase the foundation, leaving high praise in the comment section.
“My skin looks like skin, but better!” one person raved.
“Where is this from?” asked a second
“Need to buy that right now!” raved a third.
“I’ve never used foundation. BB cream is God,” said a fourth.
If you want to get your hands on the L’Oreal BB Cream in green that Christine uses, you can grab it for £10.99 in Boots and Superdrug.
But using colour correcting serums is nothing new when it comes to the world of beauty and make-up.
To understand just how this works, you need to have a good look at a colour wheel. Red and green are complementary colours, which means they're direct opposites on a colour wheel.
This causes two colours counteract each other when you apply them.
Regardless, green colour correctors will counteract redness in the skin, making it perfect for covering up any nasty red spots, rosacea and general red patches.
There are other colours that are commonly used in make-up to cancel out any imbalances.
There have been numerous red colour correctors on the market. Reds and pinks can be used to cancel out heavy eye bags, while purple is often deployed to erase any yellow, sallow tones in the skin.
Our make-up is going to start looking like all the colours of the rainbow after this nifty trick!
