Whilst we’d all love to have clear, unblemished skin sometimes life throws a few lemons into the mix. Whether it’s acne, dark circles or rosacea everyone has skin problems that they seek to treat or cover with makeup. Makeup can solve a myriad of problems and I’ve come up with the best products to suit your skin concern.
Acne scarring and hyperpigmentation
You’ve finally got rid of your acne and you’re trying to enjoy your clear skin again; the only issue is the scarring that brings you down every time you look in the mirror. For skin concerns like acne and hyperpigmentation you need to look for a foundation that can colour correct whilst providing full coverage. Try Hourglass Immaculate liquid powder foundation which has been designed to reduce the appearance of acne scars and pores. It has a medium to full coverage and dries to a powder with a shine reducing filter.

As I’ve mentioned many times on the blog I have suffered with dark circles all my life. Having failed to find a treatment to reduce them I rely primarily on the power of concealer to reduce the intensity of the darkness. Start off with Rosie for Autograph Amazing Skin Secret concealer and blend it in with Sigma F75 concealer brush.
Rosie For Autograph Skin Secret concealer is available for £14.00
Sigma F75 concealer brush is available for £12.50
With rosacea parts of your skin may be very flushed and red whilst other parts look normal. Ideally you’ll want to choose a cream that will neutralise the redness such as It Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness Correcting Cream. The cream works initially by calming skin and completely conceals redness whilst giving your skin full coverage. It contains anti ageing peptides, colloidal oatmeal, collagen, aloe and avocado.

Acne and blemishes
For many acne and blemishes can be very distressing and leave you constantly seeking a product that will help hide them. If your skin is prone to spots it means your skin may be oilier than normal causing your pores to easily get blocked. The best way to conceal acne and blemishes is with a lightweight foundation that still gives your skin a chance to breathe. Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective foundation has a lightweight formula that provides a barely there finish. It works at concealing acne, rosacea, scarring, dark circles and uneven skin tone. It doesn’t look cakey and lasts up to 16 hours.

Whatever your skin problems try and use brushes as much as you can to apply the product. Fingertips are prone to picking up germs and can easily be spread to your face if you use your fingers to apply makeup.
