How to Hide Skin Imperfections

Redness, dark undereye circles, scars, blemishes... Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could just erase all those normal little flaws from your face? Well now you can! Learn how to use corrective makeup to your advantage and temporarily zap them away!

Tips for a flawless complexion

The pros will tell you: you can neutralize skin imperfections by using a shade that complements the colour of your imperfection, i.e. the opposite colour on the colour wheel. For example, the colour that’s opposite to red on the colour wheel is green. Therefore, you can hide redness, blemishes and rosacea using green concealer. Yellow concealers are perfect for covering up dark undereye circles and bruises.

How to hide those imperfections

On bare skin, apply concealer onto the imperfection you want to cover up. You can then apply your usual foundation to your whole face. If necessary, reapply using small strokes. Above all, don’t forget to set your makeup and even out your complexion by applying loose powder.

Good to know: If you have any scars, use a light coloured concealer in the hollow part, and a darker concealer on the raised part. This will diminish the appearance of the scar. Tap with your fingertip to blend.
