Having pimples and spots isn't easy and even the most confident of people can become self-conscious and upset. Whether you suffer from a lot of spots or just the occasional breakout, follow our advice to help you cover up even the most noticeable of acne.
Before you even contemplate techniques to cover spots it is important to prepare correctly. This means always washing your face thoroughly before going to bed.
Wash your hands before handling your face. Dirt and oils on your hands will only aggravate the blemish.
Also make sure you moisturize any blemishes as it will be easier to cover soft skin than to cover dry skin.
Depending on what suits your skin, you could use either a foundation or a tinted moisturizer on your face, and for smaller blemishes and spots this can sometimes be enough. This isn't a necessity but if you normally use these products then they should be applied before any concealer is used.
Put a small amount of concealer on the back of your hand, and using a small brush, your finger or cotton bud apply it directly onto the spot.
Finally, using a small brush, blend the concealer at the edges of the spot onto the rest of the skin to give a more even finish.
