Today, we would be talking about the mistakes you are committing while concealing a pimple. A pimple has been one of the stubborn issues we have been experiencing throughout the life but, concealing them with makeup, is a blissful art in a woman’s life. When you have a big blemish on your face, you feel like the whole world is going to look at it. However, committing mistakes by concealing the pimple can lead more people to notice it. So, here were few mistakes which you should stop committing while concealing a pimple.
Read on to know them.
1. Applying Too Much, Too Fast:
When it comes to makeup, the less you wear, the more it looks good. Applying concealer once to conceal the blemishes is enough rather than loading it with concealer again and again gradually making the skin look overdone and cakey. After you apply concealer for the first time, wait for some time to check if more concealer is required or not.
2. Skipping Exfoliation:
Skipping exfoliation can be another major mistake every one of us do while hiding pimple with makeup. Exfoliating your skin helps to remove the dead cells easily. When you have uneven and dead cells on the skin, the makeup will not blend easily thus, making your face look cakey.
3. Not Blending Properly:
You may apply lipstick on half of your lips and leave it that way, would you do this? Same is the case with hiding pimples. Once you have applied the concealer on the pigmented area, you should blend it properly so that it matches your skin tone. Blending is the key to achieving a flawless and stunning look.
4. Using Color That’s Too Light:
When you want to stand out in the crowd, opt for lighter shade clothes but when it comes to makeup, avoid using light colors on the face as it may work as a flashlight. You should find a shade as close as possible to your skin tone so that it blends well and also does not look over done.
5. Using Dirty Brushes:
If you are using brushes on a daily basis and not washing them frequently, you are probably spreading bacteria on your face and all over your blemishes. Using dirty brushes on your face might increase the risk of pimples on your face. Wash your makeup brush at least once in a week in warm water and then use it on your skin.
6. Using Fingers to Apply Concealer:
You should generally use a concealer brush to conceal the area but most of them end up committing a mistake by applying the concealer with fingers. Concealer brush or tools like beauty blender can do this job effortlessly. Concealer brushes allow you to get into the nooks and crannies around the pimples. Makeup sponges help to blend it seamlessly and the powder brushes help to keep your coverage in place.
7. Don’t Pop Your Pimples:
The most important thing you should remember is you shouldn’t pop your skin even if it’s tempting to do. Popping your pimples can cause more blemishes or scars on the face. When you pop a pimple and then apply makeup over it, there are high chances of makeup to get into the raw and open scar thus, leading to infections on the face.
8. Skipping the Primer:
Primer is your best friend when it comes to concealing the area for a flawless finish. If you want a smooth looking and flawless skin, primer plays an important role. This product helps to even out the texture of your skin and gives you a smooth and glowing skin.
