We love insider skincare tips here at Clear Clinic. There’s nothing like uncovering an amazing beauty secret from someone who really knows their stuff. So when we read this tip on how to properly cover a zit from uber makeup artist Tom Pecheux in Allure, we got super-excited.
“Once you’ve put on a layer of foundation, dust a little bit of powder over the pimples. Then top it off with concealer,” he told the magazine backstage at Paris fashion week. “The powder acts like glue to keep the concealer in place. Otherwise, because both are greasy products, it slides right off the foundation.”
As far as foundation goes, it’s crucial to choose the correct formulation if you have acne prone skin. Our top choice for oily, acne-prone skin is Hourglass Cosmetics Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation, which contains kaolin clay and leaves a velvety matte finish on the skin.
If covering up your zit still doesn’t do the trick and you need to be gone asap, a cortisone injection is your answer!
