Should my concealer match my foundation? If you want to brighten up the under-eye area, select a concealer that’s one shade lighter than your foundation. For covering blemishes, match your concealer to your foundation.
Is concealer supposed to be lighter than foundation? While under-eye concealer should be lighter than your natural skin tone (or red-orange if you’re colour-correcting), you want your all-over concealer to match your skin colour as closely as possible.
How do you match concealer and foundation? 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.
How do I find my concealer shade? While concealer for the general areas of your face should match your skin tone, under-eye concealer should be one or two shades lighter than your natural coloring. Using a lighter concealer for your eye area helps cover up under-eye circles and creates a brightening effect.
