You don’t actually have to have flawless skin in order to create the appearance of perfection. Learn how to fake it with these tips for minimizing your weak spots and highlighting your assets. Glow, baby! Glow!

1. Moisturize to Conceal a Zit
This trick is counter intuitive because excess oiliness is a contributing factor to blemishes. However, a dry zit is very hard to cover. Therefore, start your makeup routine with a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer. Next apply sunscreen. Now follow with concealer in spots that are red or irritated. Remember that light parts will come forward and dark places will recede, so try not to cover the skin around the blemish, or you’ll unintentionally draw attention to the spot you’re trying to minimize.

On Formula: Everyone is Different

There are many different formulas suited to different skin types. If you have sensitive or dry skin, a high-control concealer pen like cult-favorite Touche Eclat might be the answer. If you have an oilier complexion, a creamy formula will give you better coverage.

The Final Step

Lastly, use foundation to even out tone, color, and texture. Remember, a foundation brush will give you uniform coverage. Just be sure to wash your brushes regularly.

If you’re prone to breakouts, make sure your cleansing routine includes products with salicylic acid, which will help to unclog pores and prevent blemishes.

2. Powder the Right Way
Throughout the course of the day, you might notice that heat and the environment are causing your carefully-applied fact of makeup to, for lack of a better word, melt. In order to extend the length of your look, blot with an oil-absorbing tissue (available at most drug stores) and finish with a translucent powder. This will set your makeup, reduce shine, and help you look pulled together.

3. Covering Broken Capillaries
Broken capillaries are often a response to some sensitivity: caffeine, spicy foods, etc. They can also occur as the result of high-friction (think heavy-handed exfoliation). In order to reduce their appearance, it’s essential that you find a high-coverage foundation and apply it to the problem areas. But remember, you don’t have to slap this stuff all over your face. Instead, use it to cover the capillaries and then opt for a lighter foundation in the same shade for the rest of your face.

4. When in Doubt, Distract.
Somedays, despite your best efforts, your skin will still look dull and/or uneven. That’s okay. After All, you’re human and it’s normal for your skin’s evenness to fluctuate. Therefore, it’s a good idea to draw attention to one of your gorgeous features. A strong lip or dramatic cat eye draws focus and looks chic. To get the best results with a high-pigment lip color, line the lips in a matching shade and fill them in, then follow with lipstick.
