Use your liquid foundation 1st. That starts to even out what you're trying to conceal. Then pat the concealer in the areas that need extra coverage. 2 or more thin applications are better and easier to work with than a large amount all at once. For even longer lasting coverage,take your loose or mineral powder,dust lightly all over and with a clean finger pat a little extra directly on the areas that you are concealing.

I wouldn't use Erase Paste under my foundation. I would use Cover Fx Concealer under my foundation. It's a question of texture, it feels that it's too creamy, like in painting fat on thin not the opposite no thin product (oil frre) on "fat" ones. Cover Fx spread thin and set pretty dry and works under foundation. Erase Paste works better over the foundation.

My favorite usual face routine consists of Benefit Erase Paste, Revlon Photo Finish and Clinique Pressed Powder. The Erase Paste cleans up all my pimples and imperfections, The Photo Finish evens my skin tone and the Clinique Powder sets it all and gives me a glowy look.
Good luck! :)

The best thing you can do regarding which shade or product to choose, is to go to a Sephora if one is near you. The consultants there are trained to help customers pick perfect shades and the right products, addressing each issue the customer might have. Sometimes what has been suggested to me has been surprising, but they're always right. Having someone on a review board suggest a shade or product is based on someone else's perspective never having seen you or your skin. The Sephora consultants will also let you try the products and shades to see which works best for you.
The Consultants can also help you figure out which order of things will work for you. Sometimes I've been surprised at suggestions.
If there is not a Sephora near you, I suggest you call the 877-SEPHORA toll free line and they'll also be pleased to give you a phone consultation. This way you can get something perfectly suited to what you need, and not what someone reviewing here happens to personally favor for themselves. The Sephora consultants are much more objective and can deal with all sorts of skin conditions and issues and shade selections much better than any of us can, when it deals with specific issues including shade choices.
Hope this helps.

It works great with Bare Minerals products, a little goes a long way! Make sure to moisturize!

For best results we suggest applying foundation first, and then spot concealing as needed.
Erase Paste works best when applied with a brush as the product is very concentrated. It is primarily designed to counteract the blue and purple tones of dark circles, and many clients use it as a color corrector (only on the inner part of the dark circles rather than the whole undereye area) and then blend another concealer on top of it.
