How To Conceal Those Daggone Blemishes

Well I’ve recently been dealing with a serious break out and I thought this could be a good time to share my concealer method when it comes to covering up blemishes! I haven’t had a breakout this bad in a long time and I have to say it’s messed with my self-confidence. Makeup can cover but not heal so I’m doing my best to figure out the culprit that caused this and prevent this from happening in the future if I can!

The focus of the video is just my concealer method so I did a few other steps of my makeup first to get them out of the way.

These are the products on my face before I began concealing: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in shade 5 & 5.5Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Concealer in FairLaura Mercier Secret Under Eye Brightening Powder

Top Products for Covering Blemishes

Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer in shade 1 or 2, applied with my finger

MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation in shade NW22 , applied with a fluffly small brush

optional: Beauty Blender or makeup brush but only if you promise to wash it after use (or at the VERY least spray it with this!)

Questions:

  1. Why don’t you use a color corrector? It’s kind of just one more step that I don’t want to mess with and I find that the concealer does the job!
  2. Is your concealer lighter than your foundation color? Yes it is, I think that counteracts the redness a bit and also since it’s a thick layer of product I don’t want it to look too dark.
  3. What about setting concealer with a translucent setting powder? You can do that but the blemish may show through a bit depending on how red it is!
