How To Camouflage Pimples With Makeup & Product Recommendations
Hey there ladies! Waking up with a pimple on your face is probably one of the worst feelings in the world! In addition to the various DIY & natural remedies, you can hide those blemishes using makeup as well. Today we take a look at different ways to cover pimple marks with makeup & make way for a clear looking skin.
BB Cream: Once your skin is well moisturized, try a BB cream if you do not need much coverage. A BB cream feels light on the skin & evens out your skin tone. However, it will only cover light spots or blemishes. Ponds BB cream & Maybelline clear glow BB stick are good choices to cover minor spots.
High Coverage Foundation: Foundations play a major role in making your skin appear even toned & flawless. Make sure you choose the foundation that matches your skin tone the best, else the whole purpose of using a foundation gets defeated. To cover the pimple marks, use a medium to high coverage foundation. You can either apply it with a foundation brush or using your fingers. Gently pat the foundation on the pimple to cover it. This will give a neat & smooth finish to your skin. NYX HD Studio Photoready Foundation, Revlon Photoready Foundation, L’Oreal Paris Infallible Foundation & Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation are some good foundations you can try on for medium to high coverage.
Concealer: Now comes the most awaited concealer! Concealers are essentially used to cover pimple & acne spots, blemishes & under-eye dark circles. Choose the right shade as per your skin tone & do not go for too light a shade else it would look unnatural & bring unnecessary attention to the pimples. Simply dab the concealer onto the pimples & tap with your fingers. You may even use a brush or a beauty blender to apply the product. Now the key is to blend it well into the skin to get a flawless finish! Revlon PhotoReady Stick Concealer, Kryolan Derma Color Camouflage Cream, MAC Prolongwear Concealer, Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer are some great picks for a concealer to try out.
Color Corrector: A color corrector comes to your rescue to tame the stubborn pimple & acne marks. It works by cancelling out the color tones of the marks. Make sure you choose the right color corrector according to the Color wheel to hide the pimples effectively. Clinique Even Better Concealer Orange Brightener & Kryolan Brush On Concealer are some correctors which are worth a try!
Finish With Loose Powder: Once you have finished applying the products to cover your pimples, lightly dust some loose powder to mattify your skin & set everything in place.NYX Loose Powder, Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Compact & Kryolan translucent powder are good picks for the finishing touch!
An Important Tip!
Mineral Makeup works better for covering up pimples as compared to the traditional makeup. It covers well without looking cakey. It makes the blemishes a lot less noticeable & gives a flawless finish to the skin. However, it is always recommended to try a patch test first & check the ingredients list before trying these out!
