How do I find the right concealer for under my eyes? The rule of thumb for picking your concealer shade is based on your foundation shade. Beauty experts advise that everyone should have two shades of concealer in their arsenal, one lighter and one darker since daily sun exposure means your skin tone shifts slightly all the time.
What shade concealer should I use for under-eye? “For under the eyes, I always recommend something with a peach undertone (for lighter skin) or an orange undertone (for darker skin) to cover,” she says.
How do I know my concealer shade? In natural light, look at the appearance of your veins beneath the skin. Green or greenish-blue veins suggest a warm undertone, whereas blue or purple veins suggest a cool undertone. If you can’t tell whether your veins are green or blue, you likely have a neutral undertone.
Should under-eye concealer be lighter or darker than foundation? “Always go a shade lighter than your foundation.” The lighter tone will cancel out dark discoloration, but be careful not to go too fair. Concealers that are more than one shade lighter than your skin tone can leave you with a ghostly shadow.
