Get Rid Of Pimples: How To Conceal Blemishes

Find Your Perfect Shade. While it’s often beneficial to use a slightly lighter shade of concealer when covering up dark under-eye circles (since light makes the area pull forward and look less sunken in), when it comes to concealing acne, you don’t want a pimple to look any closer or larger than it already is, so always use a concealer that is a perfect match to your skin tone.

Don’t pick. Enough said.

Start With The Basics. Before stressing about concealing your pimple, apply foundation on clean, dry skin. A base layer of foundation will make your pimple less obvious and easier to spot-treat.

Spot Treat. Apply a tiny amount of Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer to the back of your hand to warm it up. Gently tap the concealer over your blemish, blending out the edges.

Set It. Ensure long lasting coverage with a tiny amount of Bye Bye Pores Anti-Aging HD Micro-Finishing Powder and you will literally be saying bye-bye pimple!
