Hide Your FlawsFingers vs. Brushes: For dark under eye circles, you may want to give up the brush -- unless you're a pro, those flat little concealer brushes are hard to blend with and can leave streaks. Used improperly, they can also tug on the sensitive skin underneath your eye, which can cause wrinkles. Using your fingers allows you to feel how hard you're pressing. Bass recommends using your ring finger, because it has the lightest touch, so you're less prone to tugging the skin. For blemishes, a brush will help you get a precise application, but blending is ultimately easier if you warm up the product first with your fingertips.
Trick of the trade: Use your pinkie finger to apply concealer over a zit (since it's the smallest finger, you'll get the most precise application), and blend it out with your index finger.
