Beauty Hack: How To Cover Up Mosquito Bites

Mosquito magnet? Read this!

Medicate

The first thing you should do when you see a mosquito bite is to apply hydrocortisone cream on the area. Creams and ointments infused with steroids will also help in reducing redness and swelling.

Go green

Concealer, that is. Mosquito bites are usually red, so you want to take a green concealer to neutralize it. (See your guide to colored concealers here.) If your bite is really inflamed, you will have to layer on the concealer little by little.

Conceal some more

Once your green concealer has set on your skin, take your skin-tone concealer (or foundation) and layer it on top. Brush on some powder and no one has to know you were a victim of a million mosquito bites from your camping trip.
