  • This stuff is freaking great for anything you have going on you face. It comes from target it is called soap and concealer. Feels light but offers some excellent coverage for blemishes, dark circle, moles, you name it! It's about 12.00 a tube but last long time! Good luck with it. Have you tried getting some vitamins for your skin I take Lysine and it really has helped me.

  • The rule of thumb with concealers is opposites hide. For example, dark circles? Use yellow concealer. Redness? Use green concealer. Then there is also pink (flesh tone) concealer that you use for really, really dark spots that you need to hide, or to put over the green so you don't feel as though you look like the Wicked Witch of the ~insert part of the country you live in~, when you go out without a foundation or otherwise bare-faced, and for other dark spots or minor spots of 'character'. Instead of forking over the cash to purchase all of these separately (and you may not get as good of quality either), you can buy a concealer quad which contains all three colors, plus a setting powder. I know Target has one by Napoleon Paradis for about $25, but I don't know how good it is; however Ulta Professional's concealer palette (Ulta store or is really good, and only $18.
