Easy Tricks to Cover Pimples

Learn how to cover pimples and scars with these easy makeup tips!

Don't be embarrassed by adult acne ever again! Just cover it up with these easy tips:

  • Cover blemishes: Oil-based makeup can aggravate acne. Instead, even out your complexion with an oil-free, medicated liquid foundation (look for salicylic acid to treat acne and sulfur to reduce inflammation). Then, with a fine-tip synthetic brush, sparingly dot a concealer that matches your skin tone on any blemishes. Blend around the edges, and gently pat with powder to set.
  • Smooth over scars: If you have popped, squeezed or picked at pimples over the years, chances are you now have small pits on your face. To create a smoother appearance, choose a cakey concealer one shade lighter than your complexion and carefully fill each imperfection with a small, pointed synthetic concealer brush. Finish with a dusting of translucent powder to keep concealer from smudging.
