What undertone should I use for concealer? “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.
Does undertone matter for concealer? When you apply concealer, your undertone can still show through. If the product doesn’t match your skin, it won’t look right. The three main undertones are warm, neutral, and cool. If you use a concealer that’s the right shade with a warm undertone and you’re cool, it will seem off.
How do I know my skin tone for concealer? 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.
Should concealer be same undertone as foundation? According to Emily Cheng, a celebrity makeup artist who works with Yara Shahidi, your concealer should be pretty similar to your foundation shade but with a slightly different undertone, depending on whether you’re covering up dark circles, redness, or blemishes.
