How To Apply Make Up To Conceal Pimples
For concealing pimples, most of estheticians use foundation concealer. However, it is very necessary that right shade of concealer is chosen. Best way of choosing the shade is to visit a cosmetic shop and compare the shade of foundation concealer with the skin color of inner side of wrist.

Like foundation concealer, shade of foundation powder that is closest to the color of inner wrist should be chosen. Apart from these two, all over powder is also needed for setting the face and for blending entire makeup. Coty is considered as one of best brands of all over powders.
Before applying these products for concealing pimples, face must be cleansed thoroughly. This helps in removing excess oil on the skin. Some beauty experts also apply light moisturizing lotion on face after cleansing so that feeling of dryness is not felt. If face is peeled before applying makeup products, moisturizing lotion must be applied.

If it is felt that pimple is still visible, second coat of foundation concealer should be applied in same manner. Afterwards, setting powder, which is always thicker than face powder, is applied onto the pimple. Setting powder helps in absorbing oil from the skin and hiding the shininess of pimple.
Finally, a coat of all over face powder is applied on the pimple and face. These two must be blended perfectly with regular application. Some beauty experts also apply bronzer or blush over all over face powder as it helps in concealing the pimple for longer durations.
