5 Makeup Hacks To Cover Up Acne Like A Pro

By  | 

We all have the occasional breakout from time to time. Sometimes, acne is just inevitable, right? While you can trust in good skincare to get rid of your acne, you still need a good cover up if you’re heading out.

So, if you’ve got a zit that you just absolutely need to cover up, then read on. We’ve got some hacks that will help you out with any pimple.


Freedom Pro HD Longwear Corrector (Rs 506)

1. Green Corrector

Dab a green corrector, just a drop, onto the acne. Do this post your skincare and primer routine. The redness will be visibly less and you can go over with your foundation.


L’Oreal Paris True Match Concealer (Rs 799)

2. Water-Based, Moisturising Concealer

This kind of concealer will make sure your pores don’t clog. This can be the worst thing, when you have acne. Plus, a moisturising or creamy formula ensures that the product spreads smoothly on your acne and doesn’t make it stand out. Dab a concealer, on the area, right on top of your foundation. Use less product and make sure the colour matches that of your skin.


Entyce Eye Drops (Rs 324)

3. Eye Drops

Post primer, use eye drops and apply a tiny amount onto your pimple. It will calm any redness, making it much easier to conceal.


Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder (Rs 570)

4. Mineral Powder

Mineral powder won’t clog your pores, which makes it the best option. You can’t just put on makeup and not powder it. The oil from your skin and acne will break the makeup apart super fast. The mineral powder will help it stay in place.


Hydrocolloid Dressing Bandage for Acne (Rs 1,036)

5. Skin Bandage

Apply a tiny skin bandage onto a huge pimple to cover it up. Proceed with your normal makeup routine on top of this. Since these are usually nude or clear, they won’t be noticeable at all. Plus, they’ll keep your pimple protected and lessen it over time.
