Due to the strenuous lifestyles we lead today, it’s incredibly easy to fall prey to pimples. Each one of us may have more than one trigger – be it fluctuating hormones, stress, eating sugary foods, not getting enough zzz’s or simply following an unhealthy diet. No matter what your cause is, these pesky pimples may appear at crucial times – like right before a big event! Ultimate disaster scenario, right? Well, here’s when your makeup comes in handy (however, you’ll need a dermatologist and more if you’re looking for a permanent solution.) Want to know how? Read on to find out how to hide pimples with makeup.
A little bit of color correcting concealer, a dab of foundation, and some setting powder can work wonders to temporarily hide that pimple you’re fretting over. Let’s take a look at how to make the best of your makeup to do so.
Before we begin, let me tell you, the trick is to simply combine spot-treatment with a thin layer of foundation so your face does not end up looking cakey. The best thing you can do for your skin is to keep it minimal.
What You Will Need
Always pick the right primer for your skin type. It’s advisable to use a lightweight, oil-free primer to keep your makeup in place, especially concealer, on an inflamed spot. Also, it’s even better if you find one with SPF in it, especially if you deal with hyperpigmentation or scarring. Sun exposure slows down your healing process.
Find a concealer that matches your skin tone. Also, color correcting works beautifully for angry, red zits.
3. Concealer brush
A soft concealer brush is important for precise application and blending out the formula.
If you’re acne-prone, it’s best to use a non-comedogenic foundation that isn’t full of too many chemicals. Also, it does not interfere with acne medication.
5. Setting powder
Use a mineral powder to keep your acne-prone skin happy and healthy. They provide less coverage, but they are less likely to clog your pores and cause further breakouts.
