Though there is a proper treatment for acne and blemishes, dark spots, but in order to hide acne quickly, a makeup expert in Atlanta, Candace Collier, has described some useful tips to cover any kind of acne which certainly will be helpful for our readers.
The Lone Whitehead:
"When it comes to covering active blemishes, I try to stay away from creamy concealers and foundations, as they tend to wear off more easily from the heat of inflammation," says Collier.
Collier and some other makeup experts are agreed on this notion smearing a cold wrapping to the area for a few minutes to decrease the tenderness of a whitehead. Further, to counterbalance that attention-drawing blush, apply a full-coverage powder base.
Full-On Acne Outbreak:
Before applying any real makeup on the face, start with a mattifying primer. Mattifying primer will style base stick tone down and later apply an oil-free matte-finish foundation for better coverage.
"This way, you can add more foundation only to the spots that require more coverage," says Collier. "Matte finishes are best for acne coverage as they minimize the appearance of the skin's texture."
"Blackheads go hand-in-hand with enlarged pores, so I would recommend starting with a pore refining primer," says Collier. She further approves smearing a foundation of NARS Pro-Prime Pore Refining Primer that will give you a full coverage foundation hiding your blackheads evidently.
Cystic type blemishes look really bad. This extreme type pimples are known for their enormously agonizing nature. Collier says, "Sometimes cystic acne can take on a purplish hue, so one way to neutralize these blemishes is to use a concealer pencil with strong yellow undertones."
"A scab can be more difficult to cover because the color is going to be a lot darker than your natural skin tone, and the irregular texture is going to be much more pronounced," says Collier.
In order to treat scab, more appropriately, you can use a super-pigmented concealer which must have thicker consistency as it will make your skin tone even, hiding the bad looking blemishes with an instant brush.
