Admit it, there are days when your skin just wouldn't cooperate with you. Before you cover up that zit or those eye bags, make sure you apply the right products on your face the right way. Read on for concealing 101:

How To Conceal Acne

Remember: If your pimple is red and swollen, rub ice on it for two minutes before you cleanse, tone, and moisturize.

What You Need: Color-correcting primer, liquid foundation, concealer in your skin tone, and setting powder

Here’s How You Do It:

  1. Apply color-correcting primer all over your face. This will cancel out the redness on your skin and serve as a prep for makeup. Revlon PhotoReady Color Correcting Primer will do the trick.
  2. Apply liquid foundation that matches your skin tone perfectly. Make sure you get even coverage using a foundation brush.
  3. Choose a concealer stick that matches your skin tone and layer it over the pimple area. We love using Revlon PhotoReady Concealer because it gives really good coverage, and it's super blendable too!
  4. Pat on translucent powder to set your makeup.

How To Make Scars Less Noticeable

What You Need: Primer, cream touch up stick

Here’s How You Do It:

  1. Make your makeup last longer by applying primer all over your face before anything else. We love using Revlon PhotoReady Prime + Anti-Shine Balm.
  2. After applying liquid foundation, swipe a cream touch up stick like Revlon PhotoReady Insta-Fix Makeup onto the scar and the area around it then blend it well with light, feathery strokes using your fingers.

How To Hide Eye Bags

Tip: Chill a spoon or a tea bag for a few hours, and place it under your eyes for a few minutes to reduce puffiness.

What You Need: Concealer, liquid foundation, blending brush, and face illuminator

Here’s How You Do It:

  1. Using a brush (or your ring finger), apply concealer on your under eye area in a reverse triangle shape, and blend it out with your ring finger, which has the lightest touch. 
  2. Did you know too much sun can also cause circles under your eyes? Try using a special liquid foundation like Revlon Age Defying Firming + Lifting Makeup all over your face to combat eyebags in the long run.
  3. Add a bit more glow to your face, so you look healthier and more awake by applying an illuminator like Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights Face Illuminator on your T-zone and on the tops of your cheeks.

Perfecting your makeup starts with a flawless face! Check out Revlon’s Facebook page for all the products you can use for cover ups.
