How to Cover Up Acne | Makeup Tricks

So my model, Katie, here, has been struggling
with a little bit of breakout on the side of her face, and she’s wondering how she can
cover it up to make it look very smooth and flawless. So we’re going to show you some full coverage
techniques for acne. So first, of course, she want to start with
a primer. The one that I’m using is by Becca. It’s very matte, so usually, if you’re a little
more acne prone, you might have oilier skin type. This one will keep you matte all day long,
also minimize fine lines and pores and hold your make-up on all day. So, we’re just going to start, I like to press
it in with my fingers, warm it up first. Start in the center of the face and brushing
it outwards. And this is cool too because throughout the
day if you keep this on you, you can actually rub it between your fingers and press it in,
post make-up, and it instantly modifies. If you don’t like powder, I’ve even heard
that you can use this one on your eyes too. So it’s an all-in-one product. So the next step is going to be foundation. Today I’ve chosen Makeup Forever HD. It’s really nice for acne prone skins because
it’s not too heavy. You can build it. I’d say it’s about medium coverage, but you
can either sheer it out or make it a little fuller coverage by adding layers. The trick with acne coverage is really patience
I would say, and just adding those layers, and not getting too frustrated right away. So I’m actually, right now, using an airbrush,
foundation brush. This is a synthetic brush. Synthetic brushes are a little bit better
for liquid foundations or any type of cream. They transfer the product a little bit better. So, I like this because it’s a little bit
fuller. I can actually buff it onto the skin. And I found that this, especially for acne
prone skin really just buffs the coverage right in there and builds it very easily in
giving it a flawless look. And I even like to bring it down the neck
a little bit and make sure it’s blended. Especially, because sometimes we can get pesky
pimples down the neck too. And also make sure you get around the nose
area because you don’t want that to be a different color, especially when you’re using stuff
that’s very full coverage. I’m just going to go in with the finger. OK. So as you see we’ve built the coverage up
now. And there’s still, maybe, a few things peeking
through here and there but that’s OK. What we’re going to do is go back with some
concealer and just get those spots because I feel like you don’t want to go overboard
with one full layer over the entire face. You want to focus a little bit more on the
spots that are peeking through. So the concealer that I chose today is the
Makeup Forever Full Cover concealer. I love it. It was actually created for burn victims,
because no concealer or any type of coverage would stick to that sensitive skin. So it’s really good for breakouts, sensitive
skin. It’s oil free. It’s also waterproof so it’s going to stay
on all day. And I’m just using the concealer version of
the airbrush and tapping it on the areas that are standing out to me and then pressing it
in with my finger. I really love using my finger for concealers
and any type of foundation. I feel like it gives it a nice natural look. But especially for this kind of technique,
I use it just more as a finisher but I like to apply with a brush. It’s a little more precise. OK. And now we’re going to move on to the next
step. And the next step is powder. It’s always nice to set the skin with a little
bit of powder, especially if you’re a little bit oily. I’m just going to press it in, because it’s
got some nice coverage too. This sets it in, smooths everything out. Make sure that’s going to stay on. And by doing layers like this, that’s how
you prevent it looking instantly cakey. You really don’t want to cake it on and have
it so noticeable that you’re wearing foundation. I really like to accentuate your natural skin,
your natural beauty. So start with that. One last thing I like to do is use a setting
powder. I know we just used powder, but this one just
smooths everything out, gives it that nice polished finish look. Fills in those spaces. And these are my tips for full coverage for

    It would have made more of a point if they used a model with actual acne breakouts, instead of 2 small, barely noticeable pimples.
