Don’t you just hate it when you are looking forward to a day out and when you wake up you find yourself meeting a huge pimple when you take a look in the mirror? L’Oréal consulting makeup artist Collier Strong says, “depending on how big a pimple is, it can create almost a shadow underneath it,” - yuck! Well here is a simple and easy way to hide those annoying pimples!
Step 1: Start off by making sure you have at least two different concealers (one light, one dark) in your makeup bag so that you’re always ready to do a little shading (aka makeup magic) as needed.
Step 2: Use a lighter-colored concealer under the pimple, applying it in a crescent-like shape. “This ‘lifts’ that area of the skin out, so that it makes the pimple actually look flatter,” Strong says.
Step 3: Cover the rest of the pimple with a skin-toned foundation or concealer.
Step 4: Finish by dabbing a lighter-than-normal toned pressed powder onto a Q-tip, and then roll it across the pimple to set the makeup. Just be sure to not to press the powder on or apply too much product, or you’ll end up amplifying the bump even more.
