Is colour corrector the same thing as concealer?

A colour corrector is not the same thing as a concealer however there are colour correctors that serve as both a concealer and a colour corrector. 

A colour corrector neutralizes the appearance of discolouration using colour theory. The colour of corrector is determined by looking at the colour wheel – the colour you’d like to correct is found on the opposite side of the colour wheel.  Some of the most common colour correctors are: purple, orange, green and yellow.

Simple steps for camouflaging dark under-eye circles?

Finally, use a setting powder to set your makeup by lightly dusting powder all over your face. For a more bright eye look, use a baking powder underneath your eyes to brighten eye area.

How do you know when you need a concealer over a corrector, or both?

The right level of coverage depends on what you are wanting to conceal/colour correct. If you find yourself with a scar/pigmentation that is much deeper than your skin tone its best to pair a concealer and colour corrector together for optimal results (or you may find a concealer/colour corrector in one to skip the extra steps)

If your area of concern isn’t as large or dark in colour (especially the contrast between your skin and makeup) its best to select a light weight concealer.

Is too much concealer making me appear cakey?

Applying too much is a common mistake when it comes to applying concealer especially when the area of concern is large or deeper in tone. It’s best to pair with a colour corrector that neutralizes the area you wish to conceal and then apply concealer on top for a more natural finish. Applying layers and layers of concealer can make your makeup appear cakey.
