We have all woken up to less than perfect complexions. Whether they were caused by stress or from forgetting to take off your makeup at night, having blemishes all over your skin can be downright embarrassing. But luckily, we can rely on makeup. Make can be a lifesaver when your face is full of blemishes. Here are three makeup products you need to conceal blemishes.
Foundation is a must have when you have blemishes on your skin. It will even out your skin tone, make pimples less visible and just give your skin a smoother finish. I recommend using a full-coverage matte foundation for the best results. Dewy foundations do not tend to cover a lot and can make your skin look too shiny. One of my favorite foundations to use for flawless coverage is Clinique Even Better Foundation; it does a great job at evening out your skin tone and doesn't feel heavy on your skin. To get the most coverage, apply your foundation with a flat-top brush.
A good cream concealer will cover up the spots your foundation missed. Just dip a concealer brush in your concealer and apply it directly on the blemish and blend it in a circular motion. I really like Sonia Kashuk Hidden Agenda Concealer; it is really creamy and blends into your skin really well.
Translucent powder will set your makeup and help it last longer. After you have applied your foundation and concealer, lightly dust translucent powder over your skin with a powder brush. E.L.F. Studio High Definition Powder is a great powder to try; it's affordable and sets your makeup very well.
Creating a flawless complexion isn't that difficult at all if you know the right products to use. Covering up your blemishes and evening out your skin should only take you 10 minutes. When you go out, no one will be able to tell that you woke up with a less than perfect complexion.
