We all know how annoying it can be when a dreaded spot appears in the mirror. Andii James tells us how we can cover up any nasty little blemishes to get that flawless skin look we all strive for…
If you only need a little cover, then this very simple to do, all you will need is your basic concealer. For concealing blemishes I prefer a thicker product such as the MAC Studio Finish Concealer which comes in a pot and has an amazing amount of coverage, as does the Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer by Benefit. Remember that when concealing blemishes, the concealer should always match your skin tone.
For under-eye concealing use a concealer with a thinner consistency, almost liquid-like such as the ELF Tone Correcting Concealer which I think is great! It covers the bags or the discolouration under your eyes and for this area of cover-up use a concealer 1/2 a shade lighter than your skin.
You can also use correcting concealers which correct the skin tone by using a contrasting colour on the colour wheel. For example;
- Covering Redness in the skin by using a Green Concealer
- Hiding Dark Circles by using a Salmon Coloured Concealer
- Using Lilac to brighten up Sallow skin
The goal with these coloured concealers is to neutralise the red or the blue, not to cover it. Use a small amount to conceal, and if your face starts to go green, you know you have applied too much…
Scars or Skin Disorder Concealing
When you have scars or skin disorders it can be hard to cover, but you can get special pigmented concealers that will hide anything.
I know of the Dermablend range, which was used to cover Zombie Boys Tattoos and they did an amazing job!
Happy concealing! Leave a comment and let us know how you get on.
