What is the best way to pick the shade of concealer that you need?
I have heard that you should go a shade darker then your skin tone, is this true? I have red hair, and with it came a farily light skin tone. What would be the best shade for me to use? Mainly want it to cover dark circles under my eyes. Thanks.

Going darker than your skin tone, especially under your eye area where you can get a bluish purple hue, is not the best idea because it can actually accentuate you dark under eye circles. If you do choose to use a darker color, do it under foundation and then top it off with a light concealer such as Sephora's smoothing & brightening concealer and then set with a powder such as Urban Decay's Razor Sharp Finishing powder or Tarte's Smooth Operator finishing powder (my to favs.) hope this helps! =)

I have light skin as well, and I find getting a light concealer covers up dark circles much better. I definately wouldn't go darker, just get one that matches your skin tone best, or maybe a shade lighter. Hope I helped:)

I find that testing it on the back of my hand is the best way. The first tube of concealer I had was a little too light. When I ran out of that, I went into the store and tried several shades on the back of my hand until I found one that blended in the best.
