It comes as a surprise to some people, but blemishes can strike at any age. To minimize the appearance of facial blemishes or acne, use a concealer with a dry texture; it will cling to the blemish better, last throughout the day, and not irritate the skin or initiate more breakouts. Here are the easy quick steps to looking like perfection!
- Apply your foundation first. This is definitely one instance in which you want to always apply your foundation before you conceal. It makes the process much easier.
- Choose a concealer with a dry texture, being sure to choose one with a depth level that is not lighter than your foundation. Your concealer should match your skin exactly. A light concealer will only make the blemish seem larger, because everything we lighten comes forward. Using a brush, apply the concealer directly to the blemish.
- With your finger, use a stippling (patting) motion to blend the edges around the blemish into the skin. Stippling blends in the texture of the concealer, making it invisible. For stubborn blemishes, feel free to apply a second layer for extra coverage. Do not apply more than two layers, because it will start to look noticeable .
