I'm noticing all these concealers and foundations labeled as "correctors." Can you explain the concept to me?
Correctors are used to help neutralize redness, darkness and other areas that are too large for a concealer. Concealers are typically used under the eye and for small blemishes. Foundations are used to even out skin tones.

Makeup tip: Color correctors, also known as neutralizers, and are used to "correct" hard-to-cover skin discolorations. They're based on the idea that when you want to neutralize a color, you place its opposing color over it. That's why, for example, color correctors for red-toned skin are green tinted.
The skin is made up of four types of pigments, of which every individual has a unique combination. They are: oxygenated hemoglobin, or what makes blood red; reduced hemoglobin, which is the pigment that appears blue in veins seen through the skin; melanin, the major pigment, which darkens when exposed to sunlight; and carotene, responsible for the yellow tones in skin.
The undertone colors of skin are either predominantly blues (cool) or red (warm) in appearance; if skin has a higher proportion of carotene (yellow pigment), it will appear warm as well.
