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.

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.

Yes, in terms of color but, if the mole stands up off the skin like the one under my eye, you'll see the raised area but, not the color. All up, unless someone is fairly close, it is really hard to see!

answer 6
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.

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.

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 dont recommend using a sponge because most of the product is going to end up in the sponge and not on your face. you will not get your money's worth that way.
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.

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.

Question
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 like this better because out of the palette, I only use 2 colors at the most so this is really a better value for me and I prefer liquid to cream concealers because they are more blendable.

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 dark chicken pock marks on my face and it covers that, so I imagine it would work on freckles. Also this concealer is light enough that it wouldn't feel cakey to use on large parts of your face. I'm guessing your freckles cover a bit of space on your face.
