Covering Acne with Makeup

on Jun 24, 2009 @ 12:51 am

Hi ladies

I found this amazing video on how to cover acne with makeup. My skin is actually very dry so this isn't one of my problems, but I think I recall someone asking which makeup is good for acne prone skin... and I can't find that thread anymore so I'm posting this in hopes that whoever asked that question may be helped through this video.

So Chickies, what are your secrets, tips and tricks to flawless skin?

What a brave woman!! Most make-up wearers don't want to be caught dead out in public w/o some on (let alone on a video streaming on the internet ... worldwide!). I think her video is fantastic. She's got something good going on and she wants to share it w/ others out there, just like her, who suffer from acne scarring. She does an amazing job covering it up.

that is exactly what I thought too - i've never posted on youtube because i'm too self conscience... this girl is definately brave!!! and boy, whatta difference!!! she really does do an amazing job covering the acne up! and i noticed she didn't use any expensive products, she used revlon mostly - drugstore brand stuff...

on camera vs. in person on Jun 25, 2009 @ 08:15 am

I would love to see her "done up" in person. Like, will her skin appear smooth or textured by the make up? I have acne scarring and discoloration. I've avoided make up all these years b/c of the potential for aggravating my skin. Now that I'm into my 30s and rarely wear make up, even seeing her awesome results, the work it takes to cover it up just seems so daunting to me. So much time!!

(i'm sorry I don't really have any tips but...) That was amazing! I don't really have any difficulties with covering acne or scarring but I have such a new outlook on makeup now! She gave me so many ideas and they were geared towards healthy skin. Lately I have been suffering from tired looking skin and I loved how she just glowed! I can't wait to try out some techniques this weekend. (I'll be ready to stop traffic in no time) ;)

Thanks becky for finding this!

I kinda tried this on Jul 11, 2009 @ 03:49 am

I tried parts of this out from what I remembered from the video and it worked pretty decently. I never thought of combining liquid and powder foundation. Here's what I discovered for myself:

-Wetting the sponge. I don't know what that does really but the liquid foundation goes on more evenly in my opinion
-dabbing on a bunch of light layers is way better than spreading on 1 or 2 thick layers. You can control the amount you put on more easily and it looks more natural.
-add more colour with a powder foundation
-then lock it all in with the mineral veil

I found that my face didn't feel as heavy as it does wearing normal foundation nor did it get as oily as quickly, although it still did get oily. My make-up lasted pretty much the whole day as opposed to it when it's gone by the half day. It's easy to touch up with a powder although I didn't even need to do that.

I didn't do as long of an application process though because I don't like it taking as much time. I only dabbed on a few layers, 3-5 as opposed to the 10 she was saying in the video. It didn't cover everything but 3-5 is good enough for me.
