The best thing to do is go to your nearest Sephora and actually try out some of the shades. It's hard to figure out which one matches your skin unless you smear some of it on your face (and ideally see yourself in daylight). The employees at Sephora are usually pretty good about helping you find the right one, especially if you're debating between two different shades (like me). Good luck!

When covering hyper-pigmentation , you need to use a concealer that's close to the color of the spot and blend it in with your foundation.This takes a lot of blending but it's worth it.

When you go to the Make Up For Ever page, under the "Learn more about the brand," there's a link to a "Shade finder"--that should help a bit...otherwise, look at all the shades available and try to figure out which one is closest to your skin tone. I bought the Full Cover concealer for hyperpigmentation too, and I just looked at the colors and figured out which one it was. If you don't get it right, you can always return it and exchange it for a different shade until you do. Hope this helps; good luck!

i'd call up the sephora people at a store or the online number and ask for tips on picking a concealer--if you have dry skin, I'd look for a creamier formulation, perhaps from a different brand. If you can swing it, try ordering a few shades you THINK might work across several brands and then return the ones that don't work. It's hard to find an exact color match with concealers so some people just use their foundation on top of it. Good luck!

I think you should definitely go into Sephora and try it on if you can. The coverage is so strong, that even if it's slightly off, it will be obvious. Bring your favorite finishing powder with you so you can see how it will look in real life. HTH.

I suggest you to go to Sephora store and test it there. that is the best way to find your color.
go with the darker tone. Remember, if you need a good cover a little bit darker than you skin tone will do the treat. Now for under you eyes and top of your eyebrows go with a lighter color than you skin tone. I hope this help.

No, it does not mean to not apply over a primer and YES, use a primer. Primers are always good to help keep makeup in place and last longer. Makeup free face just means no foundation or mineral powder (or whatever you use as your coverage). Apply this before foundation. To be honest, some people actually apply concealer after foundation. It really depends on what you like better. I prefer before. I hope this helped!

I ALWAYS use a primer and I use a primer under this. I haven't noticed a problem. I feel like the primer helps it stay on. I sometimes even use this over foundation or tinted moisturizer and still have not had any issues. It may give more coverage if put on without primer, but I haven't tried that.

You absolutely can put it on over a primer. I actually even use it on top of my foundation sometimes too. Moisturizing helps create a nice surface for your primer and foundation, and then you can use just the smallest ammount on your ring finger or a makeup brush to apply the concealer. I prefer using my ring finger and then just lightly tapping the product onto imperfections to blend.

Since moles are very very pigmented parts of the skin, probably nothing will cover it completely. You can try, but there will always be a little darkness under the concealer, and you might just end up looking concealer-caked.

Try it at the store and see. Ask a Sephora representative to help you with this or help you find something else that works. If your mole is not raised from the skin, then I'm pretty sure you could use this to successfully camouflage it. Pat it on with a concealer brush or your ring finger. Then, pat on some loose powder on top to set it and for extra coverage.

I'd suggest Ivory #2, but it's not sold on Sephora's website. You have to call a Sephora store and order it from there. But, seems like this might be a good choice for you. There's Sephora stores in most large cities, so it shouldn't be difficult to locate one close to you.

answer 5
I would suggest Flesh 4 in the Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer. It is recommended that you go 1-2 shades lighter in the Full Cover Concealer, as the item gets darker when it dries. Full Cover is best for imperfections, while their Lift Concealer is better suited for dark circles. Try Neutral Beige 3 in the Lift Concealer.
Hint-- you can mix the Full Cover and Lift Concealers together if needed; you can also mix either concealer with the foundation for custom coverage.

I mix with Aloe Vera (pure - not for sunburns), or tiny bit of moisturizer, or foundation primer. I thin it out and spread it over my face as I use it as a foundation and a concealer. I thicken it for where I need more coverage. For serious issues (I do not have), I would suggest using a tiny bit of Aloe Vera if you want it to just sink and melt into the skin. Otherwise it can look weird - you want everything to just melt together so your face looks all one color. I tend not to get all fussed about a few minor face imperfections; so I do not really build build build or go over tiny imperfections. I like the natural look with a bit of base and concealer. I also use the same way under my eyes; no reason to have too many products in my MU bag or I will not get out of the house

using a brush or sponge would waste the product, and because it's so tiny with such a high price, your safest bet is to use clean hands. After washing, place a small dot onto your weakest finger of your right hand (ring finger!) and tap the dat into the area you want to cover. DO NOT RUB! just gently tap, if you rub, you'll rub the concealer off before it has time to dry. For more coverage, let the first layer dry and and then apply a second one in the same manner....the secret is in the light tapping. also, don't use hevaily, think "sparingly", a little concealer goes a long way and you don't want to end up looking cakey in some areas.

i suggest a concealer brush, sephora brand has some really nice ones that will last you a lifetime. otherwise, you can use your 4th finger to apply it if you want to put it somewhere ultra-precise or of it's for very light converage.

Full Cover Concealer vs. Camouflage Cream Palette
Has anyone used Make Up For Ever's full cover concealer and their Camouflage Palette? I'm just wondering what is better in terms of moderate coverage. I'm blonde with fair skin and blue/green eyes, and want coverage for slight dark circles, but I'm really scared to get that too-much makeup look. I wear MUFE's HD Invisible Cover Foundation in 117 Marble, and was told to go for a concealor with yellow undertones. Would love a recommendation - either for the Full Coverage concealor or the palette.

I use the palette & I am a big fan. The benefit of it is that it is easy to transport (I keep it in my purse) & apply on the go, it doesn't bleed, & it is good for spot coverage. It lasts fairly well - about as well as any concealer I've tried. I have fair, mostly clear skin, but it can be dry which makes concealer look obvious & fake. So I prefer the palette because when I have a spot I want to cover I can just use a small , firm-bristled pointed brush to apply concealer to JUST the spot. Then I lightly (lightly!) tap my finger on it to blend. I think that the full cover concealer is best if you have more serious or large discolorations like burns or scarring - so, long story short, if you are covering up a couple of little pimples, go with the palette, if you are covering something that takes up more skin, use the concealer.

I've used both. The palette, I think, is a better value since you get more colors, which was perfect for me in the summer as my skin is never the same color twice. But this is better at covering under-eye issues. I have both dark circles, and bags (I'm 22) that I got because I lost in the family's genetic lottery. Other relatives have had theirs removed, and I use this. This makes the skin under my eyes look the same shade as the rest of my face AND it decreases the appearance of any under-eye puffiness to boot! It also doesn't flake or wear off. It's the only concealer I've ever used that stay on ALL DAY without fading or rubbing off. It's expensive as all heck, I know, but totally worth it. You could always ask a Sephora associate for a sample so you could try it out--that's what I did. I'm pale but with lots of yellow undertones (think traditional Asian skintone) and #6 is my perfect shade.

I use the concealer and it is great! You need very little and it does a great job in my opinion. I do have slight dark circles and it lightens that up but one thing I have found works good for dark circles is Benefit Eyecon it kind of bleaches the circles. But just in regards to this concealer it is really the best I have tried. It might be a little expensive but you need very very little. Also with they eyecon you need very little of that as well the container is small the price is expensive but it lasts forever! I am a #4 and right now since i have started tanning I am light. I have dark brown hair but eventhough you are blonde I think the #4 or the one lighter would work. For me it was a toss up between the #4 and #6.

I have moderate-severe acne and this is the only concealer I have found that does a good job at covering it up. I use Smashbox Photofinish Primer, followed by this concealer. I apply the concealer with a concealer brush. Then I use the Make Up For Ever HD Foundation on top of it. I could easily wear just the concealer if I needed to though. Also, on the box it states that this product is noncomodogenic, which means that it won't CAUSE acne. So not only will it cover your acne, but it won't be likely contribute to you getting another outbreak!

If you are covering up acne the best thing you can do before you start applying foundation and concealer is use a primer because if will act as a barrier so the skin doesn't absorb the foundation and/or concealer and wont clog the pores further.
Apply your foundation (oil-free would be best) first and then use the concealer to spot treat any redness or discoloration that is still showing.
Then using a small powder brush apply powder to set your foundation and concealer so it doesn't melt off mid-day. If the redness is still showing through apply another layer of concealer on top of what is already there and set it again with powder.
I hope these tips help!

I would recommend trying the bare minerals makeup as a coverup. When you wet the powder you can use it as a concealer and it covers great and it has a drying effect so it wouldnt break you out. It would dry out acne more than likely i mean that stuff covers great its like face spackle.

I have no idea what color to order but I need something quickly to hide a facial scar.
I have no idea what color to order but I need something quickly to hide a facial scar. I wear Stila Natural finish oil free foundation in E and it is the exact coloring of my skin tone but ever so slightly too light on my face but because of its sheerness, it is blends perfectly with no lines or mismatched head to body (im sure you know what I mean-when someone has on the completely wrong color foundtation for their skin tone that it looks as though their head is on someone elses body other than their own). I had the unfortunate circumstance of getting my upper lip waxed for the first time and the wax was WAY WAY too hot and burned the skin right off of the top of my upper lip. Because I, like most of us do, talked and ate food and while it was healing i had problems which created some dark scarring which now looks like I have a mustache...which is ironic bc I did not need anything waxed to begin with. Nonetheless, I need somthing to cover this and I need something that will not fall into lip creases either or undereye fine lines. If I need a primer. I would be more than willing to purchase as long as I were able to try it out beforehand.

First, determine your skin tone. If rosy shades, gem tones, silver, white, and fuschia flatter you, you most likely have "cool" skin. If you are flattered by yellows, golds, browns, rusts, and green, you most likely are "warm." There is a way to determine this: Look at the veins on your wrist in strong daylight. If they are blue, you are probably "cool." If they are green, you are most likely "warm." If they are mixed, your undertone is neutral. Concealer under eyes should be ONE shade lighter than your EXACT skin tone. Blemishes and scars should be covered by your NATURAL skin tone. Your best bet would be to visit a local Sephora and try samples on a cleansed section of your jawbone in strong light, preferably daylight. You may find that you need to purchase TWO shades if you want this for eyes and body imperfections. (For SEVERE red, you may want to try/purchase MUFE's "5 Camouflage Cream Palette. It has green, which negates red to a great extent.)
