How to Cover Acne Marks
Acne scars sometimes persist years after the blemishes have cleared. Scar removal performed by a dermatologist using lasers or dermabrasion can be expensive. With high-quality makeup, however, you can successfully camouflage acne marks. According to Dr. Jeffrey Rapaport, Cosmetic Skin and Surgery Center in Englewood, New Jersey, you should look for hypoallergenic, oil-free products from professional cosmetics companies for best results. You can also use these products to cover up an emerging pimple.
Wash your face with a mild, oil-free facial cleanser and pat your skin dry with a clean towel.
Apply concealer to any red or blotchy areas using a fresh cotton swab. Using the sponge tip applicator that comes with your concealer and then inserting it back into the tube can transfer bacteria to your makeup.
Blend the concealer using a disposable makeup sponge.
Apply foundation sparingly over the concealer using a light dabbing motion and blend it using the makeup sponge. Allow it to dry and apply a second coat if needed. Throw away the sponge when you are finished.
Dust a light layer of powder over your face using a large makeup brush to set your foundation.
