HOW TO: HIDE BLOTCHY SKIN WITH THE MAKEUP YOU ALREADY HAVE
June 23, 2018

Perfect how your skin looks with these staples from your makeup drawer.

Less is more when you’re working to hide blotchy, red skin patches. Even though it sounds counter-intuitive, over-layering products can actually draw attention to uneven skin. So, make sure you start your look with a thoroughly cleansed, exfoliated, and well-moisturized face.

Apply a small dot of full coverage foundation to cheeks, forehead, and chin. Then gently blend outward. You can use a foundation brush, a sponge, or clean fingers to apply the product in this step. If there are any particularly red or blotchy patches left, dot a bit of concealer over them.

Now the secret is to blend, blend, blend, using a sponge or brush, preferably flat-tipped, to stipple your way to luminous, even toned skin. To master the legendary stippling technique, just picture yourself as an oil painter using lots of tiny dotting brush strokes to even out your masterpiece. Add some rosiness back into your look by dabbing a soft blush near the apples of your cheeks to avoid a drab or washed-out effect.

A spritz of setting mist to finish things off will ensure that your makeup stays put without adding a caked-on look. Try Lustrous Facial Mist to set makeup and instantly brighten dull skin.
