I can’t continue to give a damn about my acne! These brats are popping up fortnightly and sadly, after breaking two M.A.C concealer bottles successively, I thought I will give up on them. But hey, I am not a quitter! I can’t surely admit defeat to my acne and can’t let them popping out off my medium coverage CC cream into visibility every damn time. That’s ugly. The only road map to a perfect make up is concealing your problem areas (read blemishes, pigments and acne). Generally, not every concealer is adept in hiding your breakouts. Even worse, a wrong concealer can make them look hideous. I figured, these undermentioned concealers can do more than decent job in adding texture to your skin and providing required coverage over lines, pores, acne and acne scars. Read on below:

Guess what? It neutralises your redness with soft hands. As for the ingredients, it consists of Vitamin C and E which ensures a protection of your skin. This concealer works wonders on the angry stare of your stubborn acne. This neutralising and correcting fluid is a Must try!
Here are some tried and tested methods to use your concealer like a ..pro!
Hydrate: Make sure to drink plenty of water in a day. More, when you applying your make-up, always start with a hydrating face mask followed by a moisturiser. It will help you avoid the skin flakes that may appear.
Prepare your canvas: Those with acne-prone skin are recommended to apply a thin layer of setting powder before applying your make-up. This will extend the life of your makeup by providing a protective barrier to your skin’s excess oil. You will have a smooth canvas to apply foundations or concealers afterwards.
Always apply primer: The application of primer makes sure your concealer blends into your skin perfectly. Furthermore, it will bring a more natural finish to your entire make-up.
Please don’t go overboard with concealers to hide your redness because it will drive things worse by getting cakey. Treat the problem areas smartly with some extra coverage and you are good to go.
