The usual way most of us try to conceal a spot is to apply layer after layer of concealer over it in an attempt to completely cover up the discoloration.
Then because there is too much concealer on and it looks obvious, we try to blend it a bit so it fades into the rest of the skin nicely.
Then the redness or darkness shows up again, and we go in with MORE concealer.
And the cycle goes on. By the time we’re done, we have a thick cakey layer of product over the blemish and we’ve effectively highlighted the very area we are trying to hide.
This is something I’ve learnt to do in recent years to cover spots WITHOUT tons of product, while keeping things looking as natural as it possibly can. While it won’t erase and hide big raised bumps 100% (nothing except a total absence of light is going to hide a raised texture because there will always be a bit of shadow cast by your spot), it works and lasts better than applying tons of product.
@seremela05, 1freebutttouch: What would be the point of showing you a zit and photoshopping it when I’m not selling anything or making any money from doing that? ;) You can click on the image to see a larger sized one. The zit is still there. Just not very visible. And it’s not a huge raised zit to begin with. Just mostly red. I do state above that you won’t be able to cover any large zit 100%.
