Acne is a beast. We all hate it, even if you have the slightest case of acne – it’s still a pain. But not to worry, we have designed a procedure to help deal with covering it up. Note: if you have really bad acne, it’s best that you go to the doctor. This step-by-step guide is most effective for those who suffer from mild-to-medium acne.
Tip One: Get a full-coverage, oil-free foundation. It’s best to chose a shade that’s darker than your skin as it will produce better results. Do not apply more than one layer of foundation – it makes it very obvious you are trying to hide something. Try to avoid looking cakey and keep it natural. Tip: If you happen to have oily skin, apply some powder on top. This will help your makeup keep in tact and your face appear less shiny.
Tip Two: The best thing to do is to draw attention to your eyes and away from any unwanted blemishes. Apply a nice thick top eyeliner and another one on the bottom, making sure its not as thick but equally as elegant. Give your eyes some mascara and maybe even a little bit of a ‘cat eye’ look.
Tip Three: Apply blusher. Color on your skin will make your acne less visible. A bronzer could do the trick or a shade that is darker than your foundation. Your pick – it all depends on your complexion.
Tip Four: To get a total complete look, apply some nice lipstick of your choice. A little extra tip: if you happen to be wearing bronzer, muave, nude and brown are all colors which look really sexy.
Tip Five: Treat your acne. Eat lots of vitamins, avoid chocolate at all costs including fatty foods like crisps. Test some gentle cleansers.
Lastly, make sure you go out there with a lot of self-confidence, acne-free or not – after all, a little bit of makeup helps us all look beautiful!
