I’ve really been intrigued by the trend of contouring and highlighting with makeup. I’ve wanted to try it myself for a long time, but those palettes are hard to find! I was actually on a waiting list for quite a while for one particular palette from Sephora, and I still haven’t made it to the front of the line.
Luckily I was chosen to test out wet n wild’s new Cover All Correcting Palette before it launches this February 2015. The palette includes a circle of concealers to balance imperfections. There is a yellow concealer to cover under eye circles or bruising, a purple concealer to normalize skin and cover any overly yellow spots on your skin. The green concealer is a neutralizer to cover blemishes or any red spots, and finally what I was super excited about – the white highlighter!
The suggested retail price of the Cover All Correcting Palette is only $4.99 which is unbelievable considering what amazingness this palette will bring to your life!
To apply the concealer I used wet n wild’s foundation brush called Build a Foundation (suggested retail $3.99) because I liked the way I could paint the concealer on my problem spots. Not a lot of concealer was needed to cover my trouble spots which was nice. Very little would conceal my under-eye circles, which is one of my major trouble spots. I tend to have a bit of redness at the sides of my nose, so I used the green neutralizer to lessen the redness. I haven’t needed to use the yellow cover concealer yet.
The highlighter is awesome!
I used it down the middle of my nose to try and make the illusion that it was straighter, and on my chin to accentuate it and make my lips look bigger. I added more highlighting above my lip to also make the illusion that my lips were larger, and on my forehead to flatter and help bring dimension to it. Finally I added a highlighting line on my cheekbones to accentuate them. I blended in the highlighter with the wet n wild foundation brush and a pressed powder, and voila! I really think the highlighter can be very flattering, and changed the look of my face.
This Cover All Correcting Palette is a new essential in my makeup bag. I feel like any facial trauma I wake up to can be remedied with this palette. Late nights, breakouts, sun damage, or other skin issues can be temporarily erased with this awesome palette.
Look for the wet n wild Cover All Correcting Palette to launch this February 2015 at your local make up retailer!
