i remember I used to use a green toned concealer...it was a long time ago, but why not check with an SDM beauty consultant...you can try before you buy, and maybe get some samples before you make a permanent decision. Good luck!

I find a concealer that is a couple shades lighter than my skin and apply it under my eyes. Let it dry, then apply a dab more. Make sure and let it dry completely then apply your foundation on top and a over your face. To me I found patience is the key in letting it dry, if you don't and put your foundation on right away your just mixing the concealer with the foundation and spreading in all over your face. Hope that makes sense!

I don't wear foundation, so colour correcting is a bit trickier for me. I feel like without that step, I can never fully cover up the corrector. Because I'm already so pale, using a lighter concealer isn't really an option (unless I buy the new Kat Von D white out concealer, which is just that -- pure white).
In order to cover up my very dark circles, I find that the best thing that works is to completely forego the colour correcting and just go in with a full coverage concealer. Lately I've been mixing both the NYX HD Concealer in 01 Porcelain, which has a peach tint, and the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Light 1 Chantilly, which has a bit more of a neutral/yellow tint. To be completely honest, neither of these is a perfect match for my skin tone, but with enough blending, I seem to be able to make it work. The peach tint has a bit of a neutralizing effect on my dark circles, and the Nars concealer is really full coverage and cancels everything else out pretty well.

Oops! I forgot, the Nars is a bit on the pricey side. The NYX is under $10 and does come in corrector shades as well as skin tone shades, but it's not as thick on its own. I have heard really good things about the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Concealer, which is supposed to correct and conceal in one step! That one also comes in skin tone shades as well as a yellow neutralizer and pink brightener. I personally haven't been able to try it because it's too dark.

Bobbi Brown is expensive but a little goes a long way! You can wait for a sale and I promise you it lasts you ages and will hide your dark circles!
Maybelline Eraser Eye is a great concealer as well. I would definitely recommend trying this out!! :)
