W EXPERT | Make-up for Acne

Check out my latest Q&A on the wnetwork on how to cover up acne with make-up! (You know we all do it!)

I know it’s bad, and as much as I’ve resolved against it, I’ll be probably be forever poking at my acne (likely until my hormones wear out!). Needless to say, I’ve had to find the products that truly work when it comes to covering up acne (at all its different stages…and when I’ve made it worse from picking at it)! Two of my favourite tried and test concealers (that also help me hide my bad habit of picking) are:

1. Vichy Dermablend Concealer
Vichy Dermablend Concealer is a full-coverage concealer that glides on to give opaque-can’t-see-the-redness coverage. The creamy consistency dries to a matte finish, and has the right amount of stick to hold onto pimples that are in the early, oily stages of their span. It comes through for me where many other concealers have failed, and also makes my skin appear normal on those problematic days. Hello, love!

2. Stila Perfecting Concealer

Stila Perfecting Concealer is packed with pigment, meaning you only need a tiny dot size for full-on coverage. The initial application is a bit wet, but dries to a semi-matte finish. I find it ideal for use when the skin around the pimple is a bit dry (or in the healing stages) of its lifespan. Versus Vichy’s Dermablend, Stila’s doubles better as an undereye concealer, as it has more slip.

Of course, you’ll find both concealers in my kit…you know, just in case :)
