One thing I love about Seint makeup is that many of its products are multi-functional. One tin can be used for lip and cheek and another for a contour or an eyebrow pomade. A highlight color can also be used as a color corrector, which we’re diving into today regarding Seint Mango color corrector uses.
Seint Mango is a warm shade with peach/orange undertones. The best way to use Mango as a color corrector is for under-eye circles with blue or purple undertones.
Many other Seint Artists and their clients also use Mango as a color corrector for other hued dark circles, light redness, and freckles. We’ll dive into each area in this guide.
What is a Color Corrector?
A color corrector is a shade that filters out a color on your face you’d like to diminish. It acts as a barrier so that certain hues, tones of redness, or dark circles won’t show through once you apply your foundation color.
Color correction applies principles of color theory drawn from the color wheel. Colors opposite the color wheel neutralize one another and act as that color-correcting barrier.
Mango as a Color Corrector
Mango has undertones of orange and peach. If you look opposite the color wheel, you’ll find blue and purple, which is why Seint Mango works so well at neutralizing dark circles with undertones of this hue.
Other Seint Artists use Mango to filter light redness and freckles because Mango matches the level of “darkness” on the face and filters those spots out once you apply your main highlight shade. This works because all highlight shades are yellow based, which is the opposite red of the color wheel, and Mango tends to match the level of “darkness” of red.
Seint Mango Color Corrector Uses
Under Eye Circles
Mango is an excellent option for neutralizing under-eye circles. This is especially true for purple or blue undertones under the eye since orange is the opposite of it on the color wheel.
If you have fair skin, however, you may want to go with something with peach undertones, like Frenchie Lip + Cheek.
Many clients and fellow artists use Mango to color correct and neutralize redness in the face. I would say this works great for light redness. If you are color-correcting a deeper red, consider using Aspen Contour as a color corrector.
Freckles or Age Spots
Many Seint Artists use Mango to filter out freckles or age spots.

How to Apply Mango as a Color Corrector
1. Color Match Correctly: Be sure the color corrector is darker than your main highlight shade. If Mango is lighter, consider shading up to Papaya.
2. Use a Small Amount: IIID foundation is highly pigmented, so you want to use a minimal amount when adding this under your eye. This is especially true because you’ll layoring your main highlight shade on top. If you use too much product, you may create unwanted texture.
3. Perfector Sponge: Use a damp perfector sponge to dab away any excess product between layers.
4. Stipple Only: Be sure to dab or stipple the main highlight over the color corrector. If you swipe, you’ll remove the color.
Seint Mango Color Corrector Troubleshooting
- If fair-skinned, try Frenchie Lip + Cheek as a color corrector instead.
- If you want to cover a deep red, consider using Aspen contour instead of Seint Mango.
- If Mango is lighter than your main highlight, shade up to Papaya.
- Also, consider Demi colors for color correction.
