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!

Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion

Don't worry about it. Friends grow apart. That's how things go. Just talk to her about it, she'll understand.
