Cover Up Questions Answered

Everyone has had to deal with blemishes at one time or another even if you take good care of your skin. Like it or not, blemishes are just a necessary fact of life even if you take good care of your skin. But dealing with it for the first time can be frustrating. Especially if you have an important event to go to and a very red blemish decided to show up that very morning. Eek! What to do? Luckily there are a myriad of choices out there to fill all of your cover-up needs. Kidzworld answers the most common questions about how to cover up that spot in a hurry!


Do I need to put foundation all over my face to cover up the blemish?>


The answer is absolutely not! When you’re a teenager, foundation should never be something that you regularly apply on your skin. When you’re young you should never cover up the texture of your skin with heavy foundation or powder. Even with some pimples on your face, letting your skin breathe is the best thing you can do for it. All you really need if you feel a bit self-conscious is some artfully applied concealer! Alos we bet that no one notices the pimple as much as you do!


What exactly does tinted moisturizer do and do I need it?


Tinted moisturizer is just moisturizer that is tinted the color of your skin. It is meant to provide extremely light coverage on your skin and is used to even out skin tone. The best kind of tinted moisturizer are ones with built in sunscreen so it’s both adding a bit of color tint to your face but also protects your skin from UV rays.

What kind of concealer is best for covering up blemishes?


There are basically three kinds of concealer - liquid concealer in wand form, stick concealer or concealer in a pan. The thicker it is, the more coverage it gives you. So if you’re only looking for light coverage, liquid concealer is for you. Stick and pan concealers are best for medium to heavy coverage. Liquid concealer is great for just covering up light marks on your skin or under your eyes. Peach or yellow toned concealer is best for the delicate undereye area and for concealing any redness in your skin.


How do I apply concealer?


If you have chosen a concealer that matches your skin then you’re already halfway there! The key to expertly applying cover up is getting the right color match and in the application of course! Also make sure you prep your skin by gently washing and exfoliating - either with a facial scrub or gently with a washcloth and cleanser. Apply moisturizer immediately afterwards. This will minimize dryness or flaking on your skin that can make it difficult for concealer to blend in. You can use your fingers or a concealer brush - gently dab a tiny bit on your finger (a brush is better for more precise application) and then onto the blemish until it disappears. Don’t cake on loads of concealer - less is more!

How do I get the right color for my skintone?


When you’re testing out concealer at the store, make sure you try it out on your jawline in good lighting. Never rely on testing the color on your hand. Even though the color of you hand and face seem to match, it never is the same! Get someone to look as well and tell you which one blends in with your skin best!

Of course not! What kinds of people just go through their everyday lives shoving good kids into hard metal lockers? It's not right. I would never associate myself with a group like that. What kind of popular is that, shoving kids into lockers?

They also may suddenly dote on you one day also to make up for a bad day. I'm not making an excuse, it's still a ver bad thing to do. I'm just putting it out there. that's a good point.
