Let’s face it, we all hate breakouts. Whether it’s a red pimple on your chin or a rash patch on your T-zone, flare-ups can make us feel really self-conscious. While I would always advise having a healthy skincare routine first, I also understand the desire to cover them up with makeup and make them magically disappear. With that in mind, here’s a no-nonsense six-step guide on how to conceal blemishes and fake perfection when your skin isn’t cooperating…
1. Choose Your Formula Wisely
If you tend to use oil-based foundations, then you may be making your breakout worse. Instead, you should opt for a base product that will make your skin look great whilst also supporting its recovery.
I’d recommend using a water-based foundation like Clinique’s Anti Blemish Solutions Liquid Makeup, or, if your skin is really oily, a mattifying one like Maybelline Fit Me! Matte and Poreless Foundation.
