10 Effective Ways to Cover a Blemish

2. Layer Your Makeup

Skin-correcting makeup is available in a variety of textures and colors meant to cover up all types of blemishes. Sometimes you will need to use several different types of makeup and tools for hiding your blemishes. Some of them can require multiple layers of foundation, concealers and powder, depending on the severity.

Layering is a great way to conceal a blemish because it adds depth to makeup, which not only reduces color differences, but also reduces shadows due to surface irregularities.

Start by spreading a foundation that matches your normal skin tone over your entire face. Put a concealer on top of that, but only on areas that are obviously a different shade. The concealer should be two shades lighter than your skin tone so that it can mask the affected area without looking too dark. Finally, finish up with powder to keep everything in place.

If you use the make up when you have some blemishes, you will feel more confident about your appearance. Just be careful, because if you use too much makeup, while you are having acne breakouts, you could end up with a caked-up face. Maybe you are tired of hearing that but a little makeup goes a long way.
