When you are covering your zits the first step has to be creating a smooth canvas for the makeup application. Start by exfoliating your skin to eliminate any flaky skin of the dried-up pimples. If you skip this step the concealer will only make your uneven skin more pronounced. Try to pick a hydrating concealer for dry and flaky skin. 

Popping the pimple before concealing

The biggest mistake people do is to pop their pimples before attempting to cover them. This can lead to inflammation or infection which might increase the scarring or discoloration of the skin. 

Skipping on the primer

Primer has the power to hold onto your concealer which makes it stay put. It is important to understand that pimples are usually oily which might make it difficult for the concealer to stay that is precisely why skipping on the primer is a big mistake. 

Using the wrong makeup brush

Picking the right application tool is extremely important when it comes to covering pimples. You need to pick a buffing brush with dense bristles for acne-prone skin. Blending sponges or different brushed may lead to bald spots.

Once you apply your foundation let it sit for a bit and settle before you apply any other product even your concealer for a giving decent coverage.

Picking the wrong shade or missing out on a color corrector
