Makeup is a really effective tool. It has the ability to transform a face with red blemishes and severe acne scars into a flawless work of art. The trick is to have the right makeup brushes and the best products on hand, like concealer and foundation, and to know how to use them correctly.
We having compiled an easy-to-follow guide on how to conceal acne and acne scars with makeup to help you achieve beautiful skin. To follow these six tips.
- Use a treatment product
Treatment is the first step in any great beauty routine to make acne less noticeable. Your usual skincare routine should address both individual blemishes and the overall appearance of your complexion. Use a toner or serum after cleansing your skin.
Hydration is especially important for soft skin, which is the secret to seamless makeup application. So, before picking up a cosmetic brush, be sure to moisturize your face.
Once you’ve worked out your skincare routine, you can move on to the fun part of the process: makeup! If your goal is to conceal acne and acne scars with makeup, a makeup primer will come in handy. It’s meant to create a smooth texture that cosmetics can glide over, and it can even help reduce the appearance of skin indentations caused by acne scars.
- Fix your acne first
Concealers and correctors are your secret weapon, especially in problem areas. To counterbalance the red color in areas where there is a lot of redness, use a green concealer. Once you’re satisfied, apply concealer to the areas that bother you the most. Dab, do not rub.
- Use a fluid foundation
Keep it fluid; liquid foundations allow you to blend and build coverage over time. Choose a creamy consistency for more coverage or use an airbrush to create your foundation. Keep in mind that powder foundations tend to cling to problem areas, emphasizing pimples and scars. Worse still, if you apply too much for better coverage, it can look “set”.
Finish with a thin coat of setting spray or setting powder.
