I love how Seint’s makeup is so versatile! You can use one tin of makeup for multiple uses, so it really simplifies your makeup bag. I love how their IIID foundation highlight and contours can also be used as a color corrector in some cases. In this guide, we will cover Seint Aspen color corrector uses and why you may want to give it a try.
Aspen is a contour shade in Seint’s IIID Foundation collection, but it also works extremely well as a color corrector for redness.

What is Color Correcting?
Color correcting is the process of neutralizing tones in your face that you’d like to diminish. You do this by applying hues that are opposite on the color wheel of the shade you’re trying to neutralize.
Your color-correcting shade will act as a barrier so that redness, dark circles, age spots, or whatever “problem areas” you may have won’t show through once you apply your main highlight color.
Aspen Contour as a Color Corrector
Seint’s Aspen Contour has slight green undertones to it, so if you look opposite of it on the color wheel, you’ll find red. This is why Seint Aspen color corrects red so well. It also tends to match the level of darkness of red on people’s faces, so it filters out the red so well.
Because Aspen works so well with neutralizing redness, it is often the go-to color-correcting shade for those with rosacea! Definitely give this a try if this is something you struggle with.
Seint Aspen Color Corrector: Before and After
How stunning does this Seint Artist look? You can see how the Aspen Contour filtered out the redness and really helped smooth our her complexion.
Here’s another beautiful before and after. This Seint Artist had tones of deep red on her face. You can really see how Aspen acted as a barrier between her skin and foundation highlight to block out the redness on her face.
I love the magic of this makeup! She applied a tin layer for Seint Aspen color corrector before her main highlight shade, and it really smoothed out her complexion.
This is one of my favorite before and afters. This beauty has very deep reds on her face, but look how beautifully color correcting evened out her skin tone.
How to Apply Aspen as Color Corrector
1. Use a Small Amount: Because Seint’s cream makeup is so pigmented, a little goes a very long way. You’ll want to grab a small amount on your brush in order to apply a very thin layer over the redness you are color correcting.
2. Perfector Sponge: Use a damp perfector sponge to dab away any excess product between layers.
3. Stipple Only: Light press main highlight color over Aspen. If you swipe, it won’t layer properly.
Seint Makeup is extremely versatile, which is one of the many reasons it is loved by so many. Many of its IID foundation shades can double as color correctors, including Aspen Contour. Use Seint’s Aspen to neutralize redness in the face and even out your skin tone.
