Applying Concealer: Covering up Acne.Breakouts are embarrassing, but fortunately, concealing problem areas can make imperfections disappear. Many products are even designed with medicating ingredients that treat and prevent breakouts. Read on to learn simple tricks for concealing acne. The first step in concealing acne is creating a flawless canvas on the face. Apply an oil-free moisturizer that doesn't clog pores to get rid of dryness and flaking. After allowing the face to dry for a few minutes, apply a skin-clearing concealer. Concealer reviews consistently rank Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Concealer as a great acne-fighting concealer. It covers up blemishes while treating the problem area with salicylic acid. After you've concealed the problem area, apply foundation to the face using a foundation brush. Using a brush can prevent future breakouts that are caused by oils from the fingers. Check out Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup, which also contains salicylic acid, to treat and prevent future breakouts.

My skin is fair.Would sand/nude be the best colours to purchase?


When choosing a concealer, you should consider both consistency and color. If you are covering undereye circles, you should choose a concealer that provides major coverage. Yellow-toned products are the best for covering up undereye circles while orange-based tones blend best into dark or black skin. Choose a concealer that is one shade lighter than your foundation. Remember that getting a shade that is exactly the same as the color of your skin tone will make your concealer too dark once you have applied foundation and/or powder on your face. However, if you choose a concealer having a shade that is too light, you risk looking like a raccoon.
Trying out testers on department store counters would really be of great help. Remember that concealers are products that are non-returnable.

I have light skin. I have purple spots under my eyes, even if I get enough sleep. Do you have any suggestions for them? And do you have an easy how to conceal a pimple, say on your nose. Thanks!


It is possible that the purple spots are a result of clogged pores, something you may want to mention to a dermatologists just to be sure. You should start a skincare routine for skin prone to acne and this should solve the issue of pimples and purple spots. In the meantime you can conceal the purple spots with Colosé cream powder concealer. Be careful though in trying to conceal a pimple as you can only conceal the surrounding tissue redness. Putting a large amount of concealer on a pimple may only enhance it.

I have a small patch of red skin on my face. My doctor told me that it`s a cluster of blood vessels and that it most likely will not go away. I`ve tried covering it with make-up, but sometimes that makes the redness worse. Do you have any suggestions to make the redness less noticeable? I would really appreciate it!


Many of the smaller spots and skin lesions of the face are easily removed with lasers. These include small blood vessels on the face, small brown spots or age spots, and freckles and freckle-like spots on the face and elsewhere. To make the blood vessels less noticeable, concealer is your best choice. There are several brands out there, but the one I recommend is Colosé Cream Powder Concealer. It is great for minor skin imperfections and dark circles under the eyes.
