As a rule of thumb, you use peach based correctors over your eye circles if they are brownish in appearance, and you use the pink (bisque) based correctors if they are blue/purplish in appearance. Don't go by your skin tone/color alone. Someone had previously recommended the peach based corrector to me (because I have light-to-medium skin and I am not porcelain), assuming that Fair skins go with Bisque, and Medium-to-Dark skin goes with Peach. Well, that couldn't have been more wrong. The orange/peach based corrector did absolutely nothing to my purple based eye circles. It only created an orangy halo around my eyes. I exchanged it for "Bisque" and problem solved!!

One last note: The darker your eye circles, the deeper the corrector needs to be. Regardless on your skin tone/color. If your eye circles are medium purple/blue, go with "light to medium bisque" or "bisque." If they are a deeper shade of brown, go with a deeper peach corrector. Hope this helps!

I agree with the other answer, don't base the color you're choosing with your skin tone, it really depends on how dark the circles you're trying to correct. A good example is me, I am Asian with medium skin tone but since I have really dark circles I use the medium to dark bisque (that's how bad my under eye circles are) in which if compared to my actual skin "medium skin tone" is a very dark color. The best way to be color matched is to go to any Boobi Brown counters. Hope this helps.

Your skin tone is not enough to properly answer this question. More important is the color of your dark circles. Are you blue ? Or are you green? Fix blue with pink. Fix green with peach.

Question
do i absolutely need the bobbi brown creamy concealer to use with the corrector?
okay, i love makeup, i love everything about makeup...but i can't really afford 54 dollars on the corrector and concealer. i have heard people raving about this duo, but mostly about the corrector and how it's hard to find anything else like it. my question is can i buy the corrector and use a different concealer and still get the same results?

You don't have to use the same brand just make sure your primer concealer and foundation all have the same base (water, gel, or oil). Water and oil do not mix so if the products your using don't have the same base they are not going to blend as well or last as long as if they do have the same base. I'm sure you can find something from the drugstore within your price range that will work with this corrector!

No, you do not need to purchase both! In my opinion the corrector alone makes for a very natural result; no cakey/thick finish.

Yes, you can use the corrector with a different brand concealer, or even on its own! I initally bought the Bobbi Brown corrector AND concealer kit. However, the corrector matched my skin tone and covered great on its own that I didn't even need the concealer!

First, figure out if you really need it. Sephora helped me figure out that my eyes are not that bad, and the simple pen (I like the YSL Touche Eclate) highlights and covers enough to give me enough coverage.... I am not doing a photo shoot). I also tried many other heavy duty concealers, that were one step. The Amazing Cosmetics has a nice but heavier duty concealer. There are many other concealers out there. Seems LM / BB and now Josie Moran (I loved her concealer that is now discontinued) have moved to the yellow + peach combo). Works great for some. Is a heavy duty make up application, not great for those that don't need as much, or want an instant "go to" product. I know some love this, however BB and LM claim this is "THE WAY" to do your under eyes, the only thing that works, and show this on the morning TV shows, U Tube Videos, Make up books, etc. There are other options that may work better for many people for some reason - look around and try different things before you commit to this product (pricey and takes time). BB is not always right.

Im sorry but I disagree with the sephora staff on the color choice they picked for you via a photo you gave on the interenet. Here is why: in that photo your skin tone on your face is markedly different from that on your neck, meaning most likely that either 1) you were wearing sunscreen or had sunscreen in your makeup 2) the foundation shade you are currently using is too light for you 3) you have discoloration on your neck area from sun or another reason.....either way, there is absolutely nooooo way they can match you as porcelain in everthing from a grainy computer photo, you are better off going and getting matched at a sephora store or bobbi counter. I am a makeup artist myself and would never give a definite match answer via this type of photo which shows marked discoloration, or otherwise. Also, the corrector is not matched to skin tone, but to the color of your circles, which can actually not be seen in the photo. And btw, porcelain is an extremely pale color in the concealer and can give you a reverse raccoon-eye effect if applied to the wrong skin tone. I would go get matched in this if I were you.

Based on your photo, the best shade would be in Porcelain Bisque for the corrector and Porcelain for the Creamy Concealer kit and foundation. Also, bronzes and dark browns would help bring out those gorgeous blue eyes. We hope that helps!

I have olive skin so what color corrector would work for me- dark or lighter shade of peach?

I've had better luck with peach, or dark peach when I'm more tanned in the summer. However, my undereye circles are CRAZY dark and purple - need a darker corrector to actually cancel out the purple and not have it just look ashy. I always have foundation and then a lighter concealer (1 shade lighter than my skintone) on top though.

If you're not doing a full face- stick to light peach. It will be too hard to hide the orangey corrector without at least using a concealer at your skin tone to cover it up.

If your under eye circles are blue / purple the *bisque* shades are for you.

Also, if your circles are very dark, you will need a darker color bisque (not lighter) to cover them.

I have fair/light skin, but must use light-medium bisque shade and sometimes the regular *bisque* shade to cover my circles.
I hope this helps.

I use peach and blend it well. It will stand out too much if you don't blend it. I also layer it over a highlighting powder so it doesn't seem so matte and not close to my skin tone.

I have dark under eye issues as well. Please know multiple steps may be needed to correct them and not just one concealer. Try to light peach. I would recommend going to the BB counter so you can see the peach tones vs. the Bisque (pink tones).

I use both the corrector and concealer. The corrector is probably enough to cover the darkness, but the concealer helps lighten the eye area. I would try just the corrector first and then add the concealer and powder if you feel like you need more lightness.

If you get the right color, you may not need the concealer. I have the corrector in light bisque, and it covers my dark circles so well that I usually skip the concealer. (I wear sand in the concealer.)

I was worried about this too. I am pretty pale and I thought that the corrector was going to be waaay to dark. It actually matches my skin tone really well once its on. It doesn't even look like I am wearing concealer it matches so well

These are correctors, not concealers. You apply them only in the areas that they are darkest. The peach/bisque pigments neutralize blue, purple, brown, and green undereye darkness, rather than simply trying to cover the problem with heavy concealer. They will appear a bit different in shade than your normal concealer. :)

It depends on the color of your underage circles. I have fair skin with pink undertones and purple undereye circles, I use Porcelain Peach. And then top with the concealer that matches your skintone.

Do I go with a pink base or a peach base? I've never really worn concealer much in the past so I'm pretty lost.

the bisque shades will be for correcting blue and purple darkness common on cool, fair skintones. peach is for correcting brown or green darkness usually found on deeper, warm, or olive skintones.

Judging from the cool undertones in the foundation you're currently using, you would most likely be using the bisque shades. As far as color matching - for correctors, you want to choose which shade you pick based on the darkness of your undereyes, not so much your all-over skintone.

I wear the fairest shade of MUFE mat velvet as well, however I have extremely dark circles. I wear light to medium bisque. Unless your circles are particularly dark, I would suggest trying light bisque or bisque to start out.
