You Don’t Necessarily Have to Match Your Under Eye Concealer to Your Skin
For a brightening effect, your under-eye concealer shouldn’t match your skin colour. While you want your foundation shade to be spot-on, you can strategise a bit more with concealer.
When you're working on red spots, the objective is to make them blend into the rest of your skin, so it makes sense to use a concealer the same shade as your skin.
When you're working with dark under-eye circles, your goal is to slightly lighten the area. This means a lighter shade should do the job
How to Choose Your Under Eye Concealer:
For covering dark under eye circles, go for a shade that's around 1-2 shades lighter than your skin. If you have to choose between two products, for example one that's one shade lighter and one that's three shades lighter - grab the concealer that's closer to your natural skin tone.
Hot tip: An easy way to find a good match is to test cover-up on the veins on your wrist. If the product hides your veins and looks natural, it'll look perfect under your eyes.
How to Match Your Spot Concealer to Your Skin:
If you're looking to cover pimples and red spots, go for a product that's exactly the same colour as your own skin. Whilst it’s good to colour-test your concealer before you buy, there are some general rules of thumb to follow.
Basically, if you have a light-to-medium skin tone, you’ll want to go for a yellow-based concealer. If you have medium-to-dark skin, go for a red or orange undertone.
