During the day you need sheer application of foundation, so mix it with moisturize having SPF.
Before applying concealer, apply little SPF moisturizer over the skin.
Always start with small amount of foundation and add more, if you need more for covering. Over application of foundation makes the face too cakey.

For under eye circles, just pat little concealer and blend it gently with ring finger.
Shade of concealer should be a shade lighter than your skin tone.
