A big NO in choosing the right shade of a concealer is “not” to go too light on the shade. It should not be more than 2 shades lighter than your own skin tone (Pakistani women) otherwise it starts to give a raccoon eyed look. Concealer is used to hide the darkness of blemishes, or the under eye circles. Hence it must be dark enough to blend into the skin. Ideally peach or yellow tone concealers go well on light to medium toned Asian skin.
The most important thing about using a concealer is to blend it well and dab it on the skin. You can apply it before or after the foundation. It’s a matter of personal preference. There are no rules to make-up.
You can mix your concealer into a cream to make the consistency more sheer for a day wear. Its a must have for the woman on run.One can also use mineral erasers which will give an added sun protection to the delicate under eye area.
