I have been working with the Hard Candy Nobody's Perfect Concealer Palette to minimize skin imperfections and dark circles. With three tone correctors and coordinating foundation shades for blending, this palette offers a multitude of options for mixing the perfect shade for concealing flaws.

Available in light and medium palettes, the three tone correcting colors can be blended with the nude shades or your own favorite foundation or concealer. The green, yellow and pink aren't as heavily pigmented as other brands sold in individual tubes. This makes at home application much more fool proof. It's useful to have all the colors packaged together for easier blending. I also prefer the palette as a cost effective option.
Green can be used to camouflage pink or red coloration from acne, rosacea, irritation, cuts and broken capillaries. Yellow will minimize under eye circles. Pink helps transform sallow skin and equalize yellow tone bruises.
I have primarily been using the green and the yellow tones. The three correcting colors are in a white base. Having very fair skin, I didn't think I would be able to use all three nude shades. I was surprised how mixing the green with the darkest skin shade created a match. I prefer the yellow with the middle shade as an under eye concealer. I utilize the lightest tone on its own as a basic concealer.
When the tone correctors are blended with shades darker than your natural skin tone, there is no need to layer foundation on top. If the goal is to conceal and brighten, the lightest flesh tones can be used under foundation and powder.
While I am loving the results of this palette, it took some experimentation to combine the shades perfectly. I wish the tray would have had some empty compartments to make blending easier. A brush with white bristles would have been useful as well. It took me a few tries, but once I understood the best blending techniques, I was able to recreate the desired combinations easily.
If you are looking to experiment with tone correcting makeup, Nobody's Perfect Concealer Palette is both effective and affordable. I enjoy being able to practice professional make up techniques at home with favorable results.
