    The Best Color Correctors For Every Skin Tone


    Unless you have a degree in fine arts, color correcting is somewhat baffling. Every beauty supply store is filled with options ranging from green to peach to purple where previously there had only been skin-toned products. Rather than assume there is a growing portion of the population with a green complexion (there is not), get on board with these genius products that can do everything from conceal dark circles to redness. First things first? Learning which hues work best with your complexion. For example, peach-tone concealers work best to cover dark spots on fair skin tones, while those with deep skin tones have to opt for bright orange instead. Green and yellow concealers cater to every skin tone seeking to correct  redness that might be a result of acne or rosacea. Peruse this guide to find which products best address your concerns and suit your skin tone.color-correctors-redness-all-skin

    Concern: Redness


    Best for: All skin tones

    Yellow concealers combat wild redness across all skin tones, but green caters better to any intense redness.


    Concern: Dark Circles and Dark Spots

    Best for: Fair skin tones

    Peach tones help those with lighter skin tones cover up any dark spots or dark circles.


    Concern: Dark Circles and Dark Spots

    Best for: Medium skin tones

    Light orange shades are ideal for those with medium/tan skin tones when it comes to keeping dark spots and circles at bay.


    Concern: Dark Circles and Dark Spots

    Best for: Deep skin tones

    Deep oranges and red concealers work best for those with very deep skin tones.


    Concern: Dullness

    Best for: Fair skin tones

    For covering any dullness, those with light skin tones should apply pink-toned concealers.


    Concern: Dullness

    Best for: Medium and dark skin tones

    Medium/tan skin tones should consider purple concealers for hiding any sallowness in their face.

    Victoria Secret: Introducing NEW Fragrance



    A little playful, a little naughty. Always exciting.

    Pink with black, all tied up.

    Instantly recognizable, universally covetable.

    Forever Sexy.

    In creating this fragrance, our perfumers were inspired by the duality of the corset— the interplay of delicacy and strength. The end result is Forever Sexy, a unique combination of weightless florals and tantalizing warm notes.

    Italian Belladonna Orange sparkles with energy. A hint of Creamy Coconut gives Solar Gardenia and Jasmine Petals an ethereal effect.

    Our Golden Amber accord—a VS exclusive—blends with woody notes to anchor the fragrance in deep sensuality. Warm and captivating, Forever Sexy has a second-skin effect that’s undeniably addictive.

    Forever Victoria’s Secret.

    Because sexy is always the perfect accessory.


    vs range


    Forever Sexy. Forever Victoria’s Secret.


    Luxe lotion for rich moisture and sensual scent.


    Sheer fragrance mist offers a lighter rendition of the sensual scent.


    NOTES: Belladonna Orange, Solar Gardenia, Golden Amber

    WE LOVE…

    The combination of delicate tulle and ultrasexy corset lacing up the back of the bottle. Inspired by our lingerie, it’s passionate, playful and totally iconic.


    Our exclusive Golden Amber accord is one of the most expensive ingredients in a perfumer’s palette, giving this fragrance a luxe, deep warmth.
