                A:

                Either shade would work for you! If you need to correct any redness, Banana is awesome. :-) Translucent applies invisibly, so it's a great option for all skin tones.

                Deep is likely your best match, but we always advise to test the shades in person at your nearest Ulta Beauty store to ensure you find a shade perfect for your skin tone and undertone. :-)

                Banana, for sure, is ideal to set under eye concealer! Its soft yellow tint will help to brighten the under eye area and minimize the appearance of dark circles. Enjoy!
