If you’re one of those girls who have been struggling at hiding their pimples perfectly then you might find this article a little helpful as we have listed some of the common mistakes you might be making while concealing your pimples and how you can fix them.

Applying layers of product

This is one of the most common mistakes that almost every girl ends up making. Putting on layers and layers of concealer to conceal the pimples is not the wisest thing to do considering it can end up looking unnatural and cakey. The key to make sure that your base looks flawless and natural is to apply the base makeup products very sparsely and gradually building it up until you have achieved the kind of coverage you’re looking for.

Not blending the product properly

Blending has a very important role to play when it comes to applying makeup. Not only it perfectly spreads the product on your face but it also helps to achieve a flawless finish which is otherwise a little hard to achieve using fingers or brush. After applying the product over the pimple, take a damp beauty sponge and dab it gently on your skin in an outward motion. Doing so will give your face a very natural and skin-like finish.

Using fingers to put on the concealer

As much as we would like you to use your clean fingers to apply the concealer, this is not something that can be suggested for girls with acne-prone skin. Using your fingers to apply the concealer can spread the infection which is why you should always use a clean makeup brush to conceal the pimples. A brush not only uses less product but it also provides very even and flawless finish without looking cakey. Therefore, the next time you have to cover your pimples, make sure to use a brush and not your fingers to do the job.

Skipping on primer

Primer is an important part of your makeup routine and you certainly cannot skip on this step no matter the reason. If you genuinely want your makeup to look flawless and natural without your pimples making a quick peek then make sure to apply a primer on your face after prepping your skin and before putting any makeup. Applying primer not only makes it easier for you to conceal the pimples but it also smoothens out your skin and gives it a nice blurry effect which further gives your makeup a very flawless and even finish.

Not color correcting your face

Color correcting your face is one of the most important steps in this method. If you want to make sure that your pimples have concealed perfectly then make sure to apply a color corrector on your pimples to neutralize all the redness on the face so that you can have an even-looking skin to work on. A green color corrector is used to neutralize the redness on your face. After you are done with this step, you can go ahead with putting your concealer and foundation.
