Tips for covering up blemishes with makeup:


Your skin will break out if you don’t prepare your skin before applying the makeup. The base includes cleaning your face with a cleanser or face wash. Apply a face oil or moisturizer for hydrating and nourishing your skin. The moisturizer will also be a shield for protecting your skin from the chemicals from the makeup. The moisturizer can also be followed by a primer to fill in your pores.

Concealer and applying techniques- 

Wherever you have blemishes, scars, acne, etc. on your face, apply the concealer in a crisscross manner there. This will make sure that the blemishes are already covered before applying a full coverage foundation. The concealer will be best if it’s also a color corrector so that your skin can have an even tone.

It is said by celebrity makeup artists that concealers and foundations blend best with your skin when you blend it with your fingers. You need to pat your fingers to spread and cover the face with base. The heat of the fingers makes it easiest to blend as well as covers the inner corners of your eyes. The best part? The product doesn’t get soaked by the sponge and you save it.

Natural finish- 

For a natural fish, bake your undereye and jaw area. You can also apply the translucent powder everywhere to give your skin a matte finished look. The skin will not crease and the makeup won’t look cakey after this step. It is also necessary to blot off excess makeup with a tissue paper.

Setting spray- 

For letting your makeup stay on the skin all day and hide your blemishes, spray a setting spray. The setting spray that has glitter in it, will make your face glow. The setting spray will also add a dewy look to your skin. The setting spray will ensure that your makeup stays the same despite the moisture, heat, and pollution.

Along with these steps, you also need to apply the steps of eye shadow, blush, highlighter, and contouring. These steps add life to your skin. After applying makeup, remove it with a cleanser so that your face is clean of the makeup. Never sleep while your makeup is on. The removal of makeup can be followed by some face masks that can help in rejuvenating your skin. Finish this routine by applying a moisturizer.
