Masterclass Mondays: How To Conceal Acne And Scars

September 7, 2015
Wondering how to make that pimple disappear? Bobbi Brown gives us her best tips for concealing acne and scars – with a few simple makeup tricks you’ll have clear, radiant skin all day!

For acne

1. Apply a lightweight moisturiser to smooth your skin and prime it for perfect makeup application.

2. Using a concealer brush, apply a stick foundation or cover-up stick onto the blemish, making sure that the shade matches your skin exactly. Don’t use your under eye concealer on a blemish. Because concealer is designed to be one shade lighter than the skin on the rest of your face, a bright, light spot of concealer on a blemish will look awkward and out of place against your complexion.

3. Finish by using a powder puff to apply a small amount of face powder onto the blemish. This locks your cover-up in place.

For scars

1. First, you have to understand that it may not be entirely possible to cover up the scar 100 per cent. But, you can make it less noticeable with makeup.

2. Apply a lightweight moisturiser to smooth your skin and prime it for perfect makeup application. Next, apply concealer or a creamy foundation directly onto the scar using a concealer brush or your fingers, and set with your skin-tone correct foundation.

3. Finish by using a powder puff to apply powder, locking the foundation in place.
