Camouflage the appearance of blemishes and acne scarring with the right concealer. With an endless selection of concealers available, from under-eye concealers to colour correctors, it’s important you choose the right one if you’re looking to cover a blemish. While some concealers may be great for illuminating dull skin and others perfect for redness, a blemish concealer with minimise the visibility of a spot or scar without causing cakeyness or drawing more attention to the imperfection.
Concealers for blemishes often have high amounts of pigment compared to other concealers to provided maximum coverage. They will often have a matte and skin-like finish, as opposed to concealers designed to brighten and illuminate the skin. You will also want to choose a shade which directly matches your skin tone, rather than going a shade lighter like recommended with an undereye concealer.
For ultimate high coverage, we recommend concealers such as the Estee Lauder Double Wear Waterproof All Day Extreme Concealer and the Make Up For Ever Full Cover. Both of these concealers have high amounts of pigments with long-lasting formulations to effortlessly cover even the most severe blemish without looking cakey or drying the skin.
Alternatively, compact concealers are perfect for providing maximum coverage and are easy to re-apply throughout the day. We recommend Benefit Boi-Ing Industrial Strength Concealer and Youngblood Ultimate Concealer. These concealers are incredibly easy to blend and with a natural finish apply seamlessly to the skin.
Concealers are not only designed to camouflage imperfections, but there are concealers which contain skin-loving ingredients to actively accelerate healing of a blemish and prevent further breakouts. The Jane Iredale Zap&Hide Blemish Concealer is bursting with antioxidants and botanicals which protect from environmental aggressors while tea tree oil and willow bark extract treat active acne. The concealer also contain squalane and moringa oil to reduce inflammation and keep skin hydrated.
