18 Best Concealers That Will Hide Pimples, Redness, and More

Once you find the right concealer, the next step is to make sure you’re applying it correctly. There are different techniques to try depending on what you are trying to blur or cover-up. Ferreira broke it down for us.

Pimples, acne, or blemishes: “My top tip for covering up acne and pimples is my micro-concealing technique. I have been talking about this for quite some time,” Ferreira says. “This consists of using a very fine brush, like a liquid liner brush, and dotting concealer over an imperfection, then using a sponge or finger to push the product into the skin. The secret is to dot only over the pimple. This will help you camouflage the skin giving you an illusion of a fresh and lightweight makeup look as you are leaving areas with no product at all.” For this, you’ll need a concealer with a drier texture, full coverage, and a matte finish.
