The sudden appearance of acne on your face can be a serious problem, especially if you are going to an important event where you will publicly speak or take pictures. You don't have time to treat acne, and it's too late to deal with the prevention of skin inflammation. In this case, the best thing you can do is hide the pimples so that no one knows they are there.
Sponges and brushes, moisturizing base cream, camouflage stick, foundation, powder
Choose the right concealer. First, you can't do without a camouflage pencil. It will not only mask the pimple, but will also speed up its healing and block the infection. Choose a pencil with a more or less dense consistency. Read the composition information carefully. It can include a variety of medicinal and antibacterial extracts, various oils and acids. Make sure you are not allergic to the ingredients in the cosmetics you intend to use to mask the blemish.
Check the quality and condition of the cosmetics. Make sure your makeup is fresh and your brushes and sponges clean. Before applying makeup, be sure to wash your hands and cleanse your face.
Choose a pencil color. If the pimple isn't too inflamed, you can use a lighter shade of pencil. Ideal if the concealer matches your natural skin color or is one or two shades lighter than it. Choose a shade that matches your natural skin tone. The place of processing will be invisible if you use a pencil with a dense texture. For severe redness, a green concealer stick can help you.
After you have selected all the necessary concealers, proceed to the make-up. First, moisturize clean skin with a non-greasy matte cream. Apply the cream in a thin layer. Remember that too oily a layer of makeup, of course, can hide any acne, but it will look vulgar. Then, about ten minutes before makeup, apply concealer to those areas of the skin where you want to mask inflammation. Don't smear it. The corrector is applied to the area of the skin pointwise, in the center of the pimple. Wait for the product to dry.
Now start leveling the tone. Use a foundation that matches your natural skin tone and concealer at the same time. Spread it evenly all over your face. Leave the area where the concealer was previously applied. Use a sponge to make this area stand out. It will make the border between concealer and foundation invisible. Keep in mind that a pink foundation will not mask a pimple. In contrast, the pink color makes the redness more visible.
Finally, you can powder yourself. Loose powder will leave the skin matte and set the makeup.
