i am tan for an asian (medium skin tone or even slightly lighter than that) with blue undereye circle .. quite expansive

i am looking for a salmon/peach colored concealer. bobbi brown’s light peach is a shade lighter than my under-eye skin color, and peach is darker..

i was wondering, should i pick light peach (a shade lighter) .. or peach (which is darker). would peach (darker) cover the blue undereye circle better if i only dab it on the blue parts

i am not looking to buy both and mix it right now…

I wouldn’t go for a darker color than your natural skin tone. It will just make the dark circles worse. I always recommend going into a department store to try different products before you buy them. The sales people will also be able to recommend different products that might work even better!

Physician’s Formula has an affordable double-sided concealer wand with one light salmon-y side and a yellower side for correcting your dark circles. A shade lighter is always a good idea, but make sure to apply it in a triangle formation from your inner corner down the side of your nose area, then out to your pupils only. This will create that Kim K undereye glow :) hope this helped!

If your under eye circles are bluish/purple I would look for a yellow concealer since yellow is purple’s contrasting color. And I would think a lighter shade over a darker one would conceal better. I’ve heard that your concealer should be one shade lighter because it will blend seamlessly after you put on your foundation.
