Understanding the Basics of Covering Blemishes with Concealer

Blemishes can be a nightmare for anyone, especially when you have an important event or a date to attend. Fortunately, concealer can come to your rescue. But do you know how to use concealer effectively to cover blemishes? The first step is to identify the type of blemish, whether it is a pimple or a dark circle, different types of blemishes require different types of concealers and techniques.

Types of Concealers for Different Blemishes

Dark circles require a peach or orange-toned concealer to neutralize the blueish-green color under your eyes. On the other hand, pimples require a shade that matches your skin tone. A green-toned concealer can be used to neutralize redness caused by pimples. If you have scars or hyper-pigmentation, a full coverage concealer with a yellow or golden undertone can help to brighten the area and give a more natural finish.

Correcting Technique for Blemishes

Correcting technique involves applying the concealer to neutralize the blemish’s color before applying the skin-tone correcting concealer. If you have dark circles apply peach-toned concealer under the eyes first, and then apply a yellow-toned concealer for a perfect finish. For pimples, apply green-toned concealer directly to the blemish, then apply a concealer that matches your skin tone. Remember to use a clean brush or sponge for each application to avoid spreading the bacteria that could cause more pimples or infections.

Blemish Concealing Tips and Tricks

You can also use a color corrector under your foundation or tinted moisturizer to create a more even skin tone. If you have big pores, which tend to make blemishes even more obvious, use a silicone-based primer to blur and face smoothing primer to fill in the uneven texture. Always use a good quality concealer and a brush or sponge that is appropriate for applying the concealer. A blending sponge with a pointed end will work wonders for applying color correction.

Using concealer to cover blemishes is not rocket science. With the right knowledge of the types of concealers and techniques to use, you can have a flawless complexion that looks natural and radiant. Remember always to clean your brushes and sponges regularly to avoid spreading bacteria, and to invest in quality products that will give you a perfect result.
