Yellow

If you have purplish-blue eye bags, dab a yellow-toned concealer to cancel out the dark circles.

Peach

Pinays with medium to light skin tones usually have dark circles leaning towards the green side. Peach or salmon concealers can do a great job of covering the shadows.

FN TIP: If you have fair skin, opt for a peach tone that's almost pastel, such as a pale pink. On the other hand, if you have a darker skin tone, orange or red can help with your eye bags. [Via StyleCaster]
