Ever tried to hide acne scars and it just ended up looking worse? Happens to the best of us! Steal these secrets from makeup artists and watch those spots disappear.
Start with a primer
Primer creates that perfect smooth surface and helps makeup last longer. You really need that to make concealer last the whole day, especially if you’re using a very thick formula.
Build up coverage
Too much concealer will just draw attention to your pimple and slide off by the middle of the day. For more natural and long-lasting makeup, apply thin layers and blend well.
Blend the right way
Unlike other makeup products, you don’t blend concealer by smudging out the center. Instead, blend out the edges so it disappears into the rest of your skin. Pressing on it with your finger just erases or messes up the product!
Let it bake
If you have a very creamy formula, let it “sit” on your skin for a minute before blending out the first time.
