Beauty Trick: Cover a Pesky Blemish Correctly!

Hello Dolls,

Let's be honest, I never really struggled with acne. Even as a teenager, I had pretty flawless skin (knock on wood). More recently, I've gotten those occasional breakouts which are due to stress or of course the hormonal breakouts which are around the chin or cheek area.

So that brings me to this post, have you ever gotten one of those annoying purplish blemishes that just don't seem to go away? I wanted to cover a quick beauty tip that's essential to anyone who would like to cover blemishes, fast & effectively!

While it takes several months for them to go away and heal completely, you want to cover them up so you can still be your self while out and about, right?

Of course, I am referring to covering the bluish purple blemishes not the inflamed ones that stick and protrude up. Plus, you want to leave those completely alone to heal before adding further bacteria which might cause an infection or cause your skin further inflammation.



  1. First, apply a silicone based primer to fill in any lines or wrinkles on the face. This will allow for smoother and even application, plus your makeup will last all day. Although this is an optional step, this will give you the best application.


  2. Although applying concealer to blemishes is usually a big no-no, because you don't  ever want to hide your blemishes with concealer as they will only accentuate and highlight the blemish that you're actually trying to hide.

    Instead, you want to use a highly pigmented product or something super creamy.

    You may skip to the next step, but I prefer to use concealer first, as it will first mask the blemish and prep it for the next step. The reason why this concealer works is because the formula is super potent and it is formulated to hide permanent tattoos, so it's a fool-proof product! I use one that's about 2 shades darker than what I would normally use and it's perfect because it really warms up the skin and that's exactly what you need when your blemish is bluish-purple, (think cool tone) you're trying to do the opposite, which would be warm it up!


  3. Next, apply foundation. Skip liquid foundation and grab the cream or stick foundations as they are the most concentrated formulas which are super pigmented and give you maximum coverage.



    Even if you're the type of gal who doesn't like ultra thick foundations, you can use this just to hide your imperfections then, sheer it out to a lighter coverage for the rest of the face.



  4. Finish by setting your cream products in place. Don't skip this step or you'll be a hot mess!


    I tend to go for something that has no or little color because the foundation already has so much coverage and you don't want to add any more. Try to avoid compact powders as they can appear chalky and tend to over-dry the skin. I use Celebre Finishing Mineral Powder beacause it is ultra fine so it packs onto the skin, takes away shine and does not go on cakey!



Here's what I use:

  • Laura Gellar Spackle Primer (optional)>> Price $27 LauraGellar Website
  • Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer-Tan >> Price$6 Walmart Website
  • Mehron Celebre Pro HD Foundation >> Price $11.99 eBay
