Question
Hello

I have darkcircles under eyes caused by hyperpigmentation. If I want to conceal it with concealor and foundation then which colour concealor and foundation I need to use?

Answer
Hi Humair-

It is hard for me to tell you a color without seeing your skin tone.
I would suggest going to a make up counter and letting them color match
you. I say this because when you are concealing sometimes you need add
2 colors. Also, it would be helpful to figure out if you want to use
cream or liquid concealer. Creams tend to give more coverage but if you
need to add a base color before the concealer to cancel out the dark, you
may want to go with liquid. That would be a little lighter in consistentcy.

Thanks,
Nicole
