I love her application techniques !!! I jus saw this too & I actually went to MAC & tried the merange lipstick (I am NC 42 in Studio Fix Fluid) the lipstick was waaayy 2 bright  they sell an orange corrector looks like a studio finish concealer at Pro Stores Only... yes the orange will neutralize the gray & bluish tones in your skin and even everything out fabulously !!! I went to Sephora to checkout  MakeupForever they have a great concealer palette with an orange corrector & a few darker shades that were nice as well but its about 40 dollars .. so I went to Victoria's Secret and they have a fabulous concealer palette with an orange & a green corrector which will neutralize red undertones also and its only 18 $$  !!! Ive been trying it out for about a week and I LOVE IT !!!!!

That was very nice. When I first thought about orange on the face I thought about the Fashion Fair foundations from years ago and how everyone complained that it was 'too orange'. LOL.

I totally agree.  Alot of brands, even MAC can run too orange.  This is why I prefer yellow tone foundations, where I can add the warmth in with corals and oranges.  I got a sample of face and body today to try it before foundation like Fatima did.  I am excited to see how it all works out.

MUFE sells individual orange and coral correctors at their store in NYC.  They are about $20.00 each.  I am plotting on those my next visit to NYC.  I have heard good things about the VS palette.

MAC also sells the Studio Finish Skin Corrector and one of the shades is "Bright Orange." I would be a bit reluctant to using lipstick on my face, especially under the eyes and it is bound to make a slippery surface for any concealer application that will follow. However, if it works for certain people, more power to you.

 

@ sss215: I am curious how you get on with the layering of F&B under your foundation. It sounds so much product. Would love to hear your experience.

Oh please come back here and let us know how applying F&B before foundation works for you. I found her technique really interesting because a few years ago when I wore F&B I never thought to wear another foundation on top of it. even though the F&B was rather light in texture I liked it that way but never thought to wear another foundation on top.

This is so funny because I just answered a question about this on my blog.

 

As a Middle Eastern woman I struggle with dark circles under the eyes. When I worked as a make-up artist a lot of my brides were either Middle Eastern or Desi and they all had the dark circle issue. Orange worked wonders!!! I had orange matte lipstick in my kit as well as MUFE's orange concealer corrector. Both are amazing and I still use the orange corrector on myself.

I'd love to know how the lipstick works for you, I use an orange corrector from dermacolor-at first it threw me off but I'm starting to work with it more as far as blending. I just don't know how I feel about the staying power of lipstick on my face?

If you ladies are looking for an alternative to the orange lipstick, MUFE makes a beautiful orange HD blush with an amazing texture. the color is no. 12. 

I like using these because they can sheer out very nicely, the formula is very elastic, its also not taky at all. I set it with a translusent powder and go upon my way. Just another alternative!

I may try this. I love the HD blushes and they are such a good value!   I'll get a sample tomorrow to try it out.

I have the MUFE camaflogue palette #4 that has the orange shade for correcting dark/gray color under the eyes.  It works great.  Before I purchased it, I used Optimistic Orange CCB and it worked as well.

good info! thanks guys!

You can also try Eve Pearl's Salmon Concealer which works great for the dark circles under the eye.  It's pigmentation works to correct the discoloration.

 Are you serious? It's sold out now? I got a video email from MAC showing how to conceal on darker skin so I'm guessing many other people got it as well which prompted a sellout. Did you get that email?

I mix a little amount (fingernail size) of the cream blush to my concealer (MUFE Full Cover Concealer) and I apply the mixture as a concealer. Then I set it with MUFE HD invisible powder

I wish at the end of Fatima's video they would pull back a bit so we could see her whole face. I felt like we were too close up on her (although that was great for application viewing) and IMHO the products didn't look well blended. It probably would have looked better to me had we pulled the camera back some to take it all in. I definitely got some ideas from her video and like how she teaches. However, I'll have to adapt a bit as I have naturally long nails and can't continually use my fingers on my face like that. I already knife myself up applying moisturizers. Also, I would flip at the thought of getting makeup all over my brushes since my hands would be all icky. I'm always running late and couldn't clean dirty brush handles.

I was wishing they would've panned out too so we could see her full face a bit better. Also, I found it interesting that she used another foundation AFTER using Face & Body. She used F&B as a base sort of.

I use Lush's "Strong" Liquid lipstick as my orange corrector. A little dab will do ya =) It's very, VERY bright but blends out so beautifully. Typically I apply foundation, the Lush liquid lipstick under my eyes and on any other areas with discolouration, then concealer on top and set with powder. MUD (Makeup Designory) make a really great corrector too. Here is a link to it!

I've seen Youtuber Ebony (Colouredbeautiful) use Face Atelier's Heat foundation to warm her other foundation in one of her vids. Heat is orange. Came out very pretty. I haven't tried my Pure Orange corrector yet. Probably Saturday.
