To reduce the appearance of dark rings under the eyes, you’ll need a neutralising concealer palette. Mix the pink-based and beige-based shades together and apply under the eyes to counteract any blue/purple tones. For the most effective results, it’s important to only apply the concealer where the coverage is needed (as opposed to under/around the entire eye).
When disguising spots and pimples, use the same concealer palette, only this time mix the yellow-based shade with the beige-based shade to counteract redness. For best results, use a synthetic concealer brush and apply the product directly onto the red spot after you’ve applied your foundation – don’t forget to blend!
