Check out these makeup mistakes you’re making that could be making your acne worse here, as well as some ways to avoid them.
1. Spackling on concealer:
Don’t go too crazy with your concealer right away. Dot and blend small amounts over each affected area, then add slightly more as needed. If you put on too much too fast, your makeup will look cakey and call more attention to any blemishes you have.
2. Putting on concealer before foundation:
Every time you put on concealer, you want to make sure you’re doing it after your foundation. It goes on seamlessly after foundation (if you apply it right) but putting it on before can lead to a weird layering effect that adds volume to pimples and makes them look worse.
3. Not using clean brushes:
Clean whatever brush you’re using to put stuff on your face. Otherwise, you’re just applying your old face oils back onto your face, which can cause more breakouts. Plus, makeup applies better when its applicator doesn’t have any residual sludge on it.
