Our beauty expert, Mehak Thapar will tell you how to hide pimples with makeup effectively. Read on!

Step1: Clean your face

The first and foremost step is to clean your face with lukewarm water to get rid of any dirt or acne medicine you may have on.

Step2: Moisturize

Moisturizing your skin before applying makeup is extremely important because the acne area tends to dry out especially after cleansing.

Step 3: Grab your concealer

 After moisturizing we need to grab a green concealer stick. A green concealer helps to cover any blemishes or acne on your skin. While blending this out, remember to blend around the acne not on it because we don't want to fade the concealer covering our acne in any way.

Step4: Apply foundation

Now apply foundation keeping in mind that you don’t smudge the concealer. Also, remember to not go over the board with your foundation. Applying more foundation will actually make the pimple pop more and will make your skin look cakey. Apply an extremely thin layer of foundation

 

Step 5: Concealer 2.0

Take a regular concealer that you use for highlighting and add some just on the acne area. Ditch the blender and use your finger tips to softly blend the concealer around the acne area. 

Step 6: Powder

The last step is to apply setting powder to set everything in place, make your concealer last longer and to ensure your skin doesn't look cakey.
