How to Pick the right shade of concealer.

Dark under-eye circles, blue veins and red blemishes on your face. How do you dramatically transform your skin, while wiping those faults away? We know concealer can act like an eraser for the skin, but how do we pick the right shade? 

Well, to begin with you always want to pick a shade or two lighter than your skin tone; unless you are trying to conceal pimples. In this case, you would need to match the concealer to your skin. The reasoning for this is, you want to apply the concealer AFTER the foundation, and wouldn’t want the spot to be spotlighted.

When it comes to using colored concealers, a yellow base is recommended because it’s more flattering to all skin types, versus a pink based concealer. For darker skin, an orange based concealer is your Holy Grail.

Below, you will find two concealers that come highly recommended from yours truly; ME.
