1 shade lighter

It's really the best thing to go into a store and have one of the Sephora associates do the shade matching. If you really cannot go in person, the next best thing is to go only one shade lighter.

If I had to choose between one that was an exact match and one that was slightly lighter I might go slightly lighter, but only in certain circumstances. First, if you want to use this on your upper lid, it might be good to go a hair lighter than your usual foundation because upper lids are almost always a bit lighter and it does look odd if you have a darker lid. Also, lighter colors on the upper lid help open the eye up, so you'll look a bit more rested with a slightly lighter upper lid. If you're planning to use this under the eyes too, then it's hit and miss to choose a lighter shade. If it's much lighter, you'll end up drawing attention to the lower lid area. If it's only slightly lighter, though, you can achieve a brightening effect.
The most important thing to do is to use a very light hand and a concealer brush to buff this product onto the delicate skin around the eyes. That will give you the most natural finish despite what color you choose.

The old way? Go lighter. IMO this just calls attention to the area and is especially bad if you have any puffiness. Light colors advance and look bigger (think of white pants and a not-so-slim rear) and can result in the reverse raccoon look. I say match your make-up. I have had a hard time convincing even some cosmetic consultants of this, but they are often surprised at the result when I insist. Give it a try.

I would go a half shade lighter, not too light or you'll look like an owl.

I use both the fair concealer and fair foundation (I got a sample package initially that had them both together.) They work really well together for me.

It depends on what area you're trying to cover up. If you're covering up dark under eye circles, go a little lighter than your foundation. If you just want to cover up blemishes and other spots, definitely stick with the same colour as your foundation so there aren't any differently coloured blotches on your face
try it on in the store and see how it looks. you should be able to wear your concealer alone, so it should be close to your skin tone.

i would personally go the same shade or lighter with my concealer, and use ur normal shade foundation...that way if u use darker concealer u might have dark spots that point out ur imperfections...even tho they're beautiful ;)
