How to camouflage that unexpected (acne) pimple!

Pustules and papules,acne camouflage makeupYou have a party coming up, or an important occasion. Perhaps even a wedding. And at that very moment you get a pimple(acne).  Just when you want to look on your prettiest. You are unable to cure pimples and zits immediately and there are no miraculous’ disappearing remedies. The only thing you can do is to camouflage. We asked Michele Magnani, senior makeup artist  from MAC for tips to achieve the best results.

Tip 1: Apply foundation, then concealer (not vice versa!)

For beautiful skin without imperfections, you first apply the foundation on your face, and only then do you dab the concealer on your face with your fingertips on the zones you want to camouflage.

Tip 2: Choose a concealer that is the same shade as your skin

The concealer should definitely be the same color as your skin. If you choose the wrong shade, pimples and breakouts stand out more instead of being camouflaged.

Tip 3: Use a mineral powder

Complete your makeup with mineral powder. The advantage of mineral powders is that they do not clog the pores.

Tip 4: must-have products

Finally Michele Magani advises us on a few must-have products to camouflage pimples and blemishes: Mineralize Concealer and MAC’s Natural Mineralize Skin-Finish

Tip 5: Special ‘first helper sticks

There is one more secret to concealing pimples: the special first helper sticks available in pharmacies. We successfully used ‘Cleanance Spot Treatment’ by Avène. It is a product (a very thin stick) that is to be used two or three times daily to further “expand” the pimple counter.
