      Worry about your concealer and foundation separetely, they shouldn’t be chosen together- they need to compliment your skin tone, not each other.

      Therefore you need to match a shade to your skin tone, and there are several ways you can work this out.

      -Try dabbing the concealer on the blue veins on your wrist.

      -Also try dabbing on the area of your neck below your ear.

      Matching skin tone means thaat it blends in perfectly with your natural skin, adding flawlessness. Don’t EVER go too dark, or else it will look obviously fake, as with foundation.

      Sometimes you can go a shade or two lighter, depending on the purpose of your concealer (covering dark circles or blemishes), but never go too light, because it will drain your face and you will look dull and unhealthy.

      Hope this was some help =)

      If your using concealer for the eyes and under the eyes, use a lighter color.

      And for other spots on your face,like pimples or anything, use a little bit darker or the same color as your foundation.

      If you are using it under your eyes, just a bit lighter. Everywhere else, the same shade as your skin.
