After foundation! If I apply it before, the foundation pretty much "wipes" away any traces of concealer I had on my skin... It makes more sense to apply to after too, really.

Honestly, I don't think there is too much of a difference... I think it is a smart marketing tactic. I still buy concealers though. Foundation pumps almost always pump out a designated amount (usually too much to replace a concealer), whereas concealers will give you a lot more control over the amount of product you use. Concealers are also more thick in coverage than the average foundation.

Oppinions are different.I heared a lot of make up artists saying that It's your choice wheather to wear concealer before or after foundation,but some of them strictly say that you will remove your concealer if you are applying it before foundation.I don't know,you should wear it how it's best for you.

Has anyone used Becca's concealers? How are they? I'm super pale and want something to cover my dark circles and I heard this brand has a very broad range of colours. Everything I have found so far has been too dark or unnatural looking.

Can anyone recommend me a good concealer for blemishes/pimples?

I have pale, dry skin and don't have acne or anything but i occasionally get the odd pimple which tends to be red and dry and crusty (sorry about the nasty imagery!) and have a few blemishes from where old pimples have kind of left a 'shadow' and i'm wondering what the best concealer is to use for these?

I have pretty good skin overall so i don't wear a heavy foundation on a day to day basis, usually just tinted moisturiser or a really sheer base and i think my skin can get away with this if it weren't for a few darned blemishes!

Any advice? thanks peepz

Papyrus: I use mac & its been fab, they do have a huge range of colors, i'm sure you'll find one thats good for your skin tone, for me the cream concealers worked better than the liquid ones, good luck

amazingGrace: I loved mac concealers, but haven't tried them for blemishes or pimples just dark circles, they never disappoint me so maybe you should give it a try

Ooooh may have to give that a try, although i was really disappointed with Boi-oing, but i generally like benefit, thanks for the tip

DANA, i've heard mac concealers and foundations can cause lots of breakouts - have you had that experience with them? I love mac for 'colored' makeup, but am not really experienced with their 'skin' products

I've been using their powder and concealers for 3 years now. No breakouts!

I think YSL's Touche Eclat cause its light and won't cake.
You could mix some Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage with a bit of moisturiser either.
