There are few things worse than waking up in the morning, looking in the mirror, and seeing a big, fat zit staring back at you from your forehead. Luckily, it’s fairly simple to hide it and get on with your day. Follow these steps to mask the pimple, as well as start getting rid of it for good.
- Apply a concealer. You want a thick concealer that offers full coverage with just a little product. Find a concealer that closely matches your skin tone. A high SPF concealer will also protect your sensitive blemish from sun damage.
Test the concealer on the back of your hand or the back of your jawbone to make sure the tone matches.
A yellow tinge will help cover a red pimple.
Use a clean, small makeup brush or a cotton swap to apply the concealer to the blemish.
Apply by rubbing lightly in small circles over the blemish. Avoid putting pressure on the blemish.
An emollient-based concealer will help moisturize your skin while hiding the pimple.
- Brush over some foundation. Once you have concealed, you can apply the rest of your makeup as you normally would. Use an oil-free foundation to help keep your pores clear.
Make sure that your foundation matches your skin tone. Using a darker foundation to hide the blemish can cause the makeup to look unnatural and fake.
If you disrupt the concealer while applying the foundation, simply add a little more concealer once you are finished with the foundation.
