What Goes Wrong: A too-light shade creates a spotlight-effect around your eye area.
Beauty Fix: Once upon a time, makeup artists and beauty editors said you should choose a concealer one shade lighter than the natural color of your skin. But not any more — you’re not trying to bleach out the discoloration under the eye, just camouflage it.
Find a concealer that exactly matches your skin tone and apply it after your foundation (chances are you’ll need less then). “Concealer is the accessory to your foundation,” says Nigara. “Apply it sparingly, and only in those areas that need extra help.”
To avoid laying it on too thick under your eyes, makeup artist Kimara Ahnert suggests dotting on a small amount, then using a concealer brush to sweep the product from the inner corner of the eye to just beyond the outer lower lashes.
