How To Conceal Blemishes
  • No matter how disgusting a spot looks, this concealment plan will make all your blackheads, zits and acne disappear in a snap. Take your makeup sponge, douse it in warm water and squeeze out the excess liquid. Ensure that the sponge is slightly moist and not overly damp to save your makeup from running down. Too much water on your face will give a patchy impression and will fail to cover your blemishes to perfection.
  • The first step to guise that nasty blotch is to dab it with some foundation. However, make sure that the foundation color complements your skin tone to T. Tap the damp sponge on the foundation and dab it on your face. This would enable the cover-up to adhere better. Using your fingertips spread out the foundation evenly across your face for a more even finish.
  • Now take a concealer and apply it evenly on your blemishes. However, make sure that the concealer you use blends well with your skin tone. Using a pale concealer would highlight your spots instead of hiding them. So, make sure you get your concealer right. Using a makeup sponge, dab the concealer over the blemishes and spread the concealer evenly over the blemish to cover the nooks and crannies. Also, don’t forget to pat the concealed area to blend the edges.
  • Using a powder brush, dust on some translucent powder on your face. Sweep the brush over the face powder and tap off gently to shake off the excess powder. Gently brush the powder onto your face, evenly covering your forehead, cheeks, chin and nose to set things in place.
  • Douse a cotton pad in cool water and squeeze out the excess liquid. Blot your face with the cotton pad to save the skin from looking dry and patchy.
Blemishes can turn even the prettiest of faces into an eyesore. Get rid of your acne, zits and dark patches in a snap with these basic techniques on how to cover blemishes and flaunt a perfect complexion always.
