Everyone has different things that they worry about on their face. If your younger you will still have pimples to deal with whilst if your older you will have age spots to contend with, nearly everyone hates their under eye circles which is why color correcting is an amazing makeup technique.

Do you have under eye circles, pimples, age spots or veins each one of these problems has an opposite color that will camouflage the imperfection.
