How to Camouflage Bad Skin

Are you dealing with bad acne or embarrassing scars? Learn how to cover them up so you that you can show the confident and sexy person you truly are.


  • Step 1: Choose the right foundation and concealer Choose a foundation and concealer that match your skin tone. An oil-free foundation is better for the skin.
  • TIP: A foundation that is too light will make your blemishes stand out. Make sure the concealer matches the foundation.
  • Step 2: Cleanse your skin Cleanse your face before applying makeup. Use a facial toner to bring out dirt and makeup residue and to hydrate the skin.
  • Step 3: Moisturize your skin Add a moisturizer to protect your skin from the sun and keep it healthy. Moisturizers also help foundation blend smoothly and keep it from drying up.
  • Step 4: Apply foundation Apply the foundation, starting at the center of your face. Blend it in with a sponge, using a circular motion.
  • TIP: Always apply foundation before concealer. If you apply concealer first, putting on foundation will only wipe it off again.
  • Step 5: Apply concealer Apply and rub in a tiny amount of concealer on the blemishes – add more if necessary – and blend thoroughly.
  • Step 6: Set the foundation Apply a loose powder. This will set the foundation and cut down on shine.
  • Step 7: Have a professional makeup session Use a professional makeup session to learn which colors and products are best for you and your skin tone. Visit any cosmetics counter; most stores will give you tips and a make-over for free.
  • FACT: In their pursuit of beauty, women in some ancient cultures used toxic chemicals, such as arsenic, lead, mercury, and leeches to make their faces paler.
