How to apply under eye concealer

So the blogosphere has been buzzing on what is the
best way to apply concealer. The traditional method was to dot it in a half-moon under your eyes and then blend with a finger or brush. The new method, made popular by make-up artists advocating contouring of the face, involves applying the concealer in dots or streaks under the eye in an upside-down triangle.
