This might be the least glamourous beauty tutorial you watch today, but probably the most useful for all time. Whether you suffer from acne, roscea, or the odd patch of blemishes, Claire Howell dishes on her pimple-masking makeup tips so you can cover every type of breakout.
Step 1. Start Fresh
Make sure your skin is clean and properly hydrated to give your makeup the right surface to work its magic! Claire uses Master Prime Illuminating Primer to give her skin a fresh, healthy glow.
Step 2. Blend your foundation
This may sound counterintuitibe, but opt for a combination of full-coverage foundation and primer instead of going for all out coverage. Heavy makeup will only excerbate the problem – while skin-matching will lessen the obviousness of it. Claire mixes Superstay 24H Foundation and primer for an even layer of coverage.
Step 3. Dab at it
To directly address breakout areas, you need foundation and concealer with a dry, thickish consistency. Claire dabs on Superstay 24H Foundation with a sponge, lightly tapping the problem areas. Next, she goes in with Fit Me Concealer, tapping it right on top of her blemishes. She’s careful to push the product down instead of blending it – being sure not to cover any of the good skin around the pimples to avoid cake face.
Step 4. Set it and Glow
After application, make sure your hard work goes the distance by setting your makeup with Shine Free Loose Powder (or any powder foundation of your choice if extra coverage is needed). Top it off with extra-glowy Master Chrome highlight and you’re ready to put your best face forward!
