How do you get concealer to stick to a pimple? According to Martin, laying a light coating of eyeshadow primer (his favorite is by NYX) onto the surface of the pimple will not only seal off the surface of your skin for protection, it’ll also allow your concealer and foundation to adhere to the area.
Why won’t my concealer cover my acne? “One of the biggest mistakes people make is choosing a concealer that is the wrong color for their breakout,” says Bartlett. “If the color is too light and the pimple has a raised texture, it will not blend into the surrounding skin evenly.
What happens if you put concealer on a pimple? Since acne-prone skin is sensitive, people with acne may find that certain makeup products, such as foundations and concealers, worsen acne or cause new breakouts. However, dermatologists from the American Academy of Dermatology say it’s okay for acne patients to wear makeup.
What makeup do you use to cover a pimple? Use a green color corrector on top of and around the pimple to diminish the appearance of redness or discoloration. Opt for a yellow color corrector if your acne has a purple tint. In the spirit of less is more, use a tiny amount of full coverage foundation and apply with a makeup sponge.
