Covering Up a Pimple

Hello, class!

In dealing with the aftermath of Holiday eating, I’m sure I cannot be the only one with one or two blemishes to cover! I wanted to share with you my method for covering up a pimple (or two or three…)

First, here are my recommended products. As always, substitute in your favorites where you see fit!

Brushes: It Cosmetics Blurring Concealer Brush #103 and It Cosmetics Powder Wand #108.

Makeup: Becca Backlight Priming Filter, NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (Chantilly), Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation (2 Fair) and Laura Geller Balance-n-Brighten Foundation (Porcelain).

I bet you woke up today thinking you really wanted to see a close up of someone else’s pimple, right? Sure you did.

I start by priming with the Becca Backlight Priming Filter for it’s blurring effect. Then, I apply a thin layer of the Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation. I chose this foundation because it is medium coverage without looking heavy, a plus for when one is going to add a concealer.

Then, I dot on the NARS concealer to the affected area(s).

I use the IT Cosmetics #103 brush to lightly blend the concealer outward.

Then, I use that same brush to tap on the Laura Geller powder over the concealed areas.

Finally, I use the It Cosmetics #108 brush to lightly apply that same powder over my entire face, to better blend the concealed patches with the rest of the skin. Don’t forget to set with your favorite setting spray to avoid cakiness! And a reminder – you can cover the redness of a pimple, but not the bump! We’re not wizards here!

Wishing you the best day ever!
