How To Effectively Cover Acne Blemishes

Learn how to effectively cover acne blemishes with these tips

We all suffer from acne blemishes from time to time, but we do not always have the luxury of putting our lives on hold while we wait for them to go away. If you know how to properly cover these blemishes and marks, your complexion will look perfectly clear (and no one will ever know that you are suffering from a breakout). Concealers and foundations are our best friends when it comes to covering acne blemishes. And makeup artist Bobbi Brown does a three step approach when it comes to covering marks and flaws. The first step is foundation: be sure to find one that matches your skin tone, then apply all over your face in order to establish a good, solid base. How to tell if the foundation matches? IF it disappears into your skin, that is a sure sign it is the right color. Read 12 Best Foundations for a list of recommended foundations.

If you have more noticeable scars or dark marks that are not completely covered by foundation, choose a concealer that is two shades lighter than your skin tone and pat on top of the affected area. Do not rub in, as that will decrease the amount of coverage. Powder your face once the scar is covered in order to keep the makeup in place. Check out 19 Best Concealers for a list of the best concealers that will cover acne blemishes and give you flawless skin. If you have larger scars or tattoos that you want to cover, look into trying Covermark, a super strength concealer. If you suffer form pockmarks or indented scars, Dermaflage is another great makeup product that will actually fill in your scars temporarily and make them level with the rest of your skin.
