Your 12 Biggest Beauty Disasters -- Solved!
Self-tanning trauma? Bad dye job? Zit flare up? Check out these beauty tips to turn your purse into your beauty crisis survival kit
The solution: First, don't panic, because stress only makes things worse. Then, reach for your zit emergency kit (which you should always have in your purse): a spot treatment and a small tube of concealer. Apply the spot treatment first (try Intraceuticals Clarity Blemish Repair Wand, $89), then use your fingers to dab concealer on the spot. Bosso recommends MAC Studio Finish Concealer, $16.50 because it offers natural-looking coverage (so your date won't be distracted by a weird concealer blob) and is water resistant.
And if you're stuck somewhere without these items? You can always use powder (wet it for more concentrated coverage) or foundation (the part that's somewhat dried near the cap will go on thicker) instead, or if you're completely without extra makeup try blending what you are wearing over the zit for a bit of coverage (for example, if you used concealer under your eyes, try and wipe some off with your finger and use it on your blemish).
