How to hide your acne using makeup

Its almost earth shattering when a pimple decides to appear the day before your date. The only thing that can save you at the last moment is makeup. It can hide almost anything. Here are a  few tips to hide your acne/pimple using makeup,

First cleanse and moisturize your face before using any makeup. This will make your skin look flawless and will create a smooth canvas for makeup.

The next step is apply a primer. Apply a good primer all over the face

Next is to hide the acne/pimple using a concealer. Just dab your brush on the spot and let it it settle in.

Now use a green/yellow concealer to hide those pimples. Green concealer should be used if your pimple/acne are red.If your pimples are not red, you may be better off choosing a yellow concealer to cover them but make sure you don’t choose a concealer that is lighter than your skin. You will just be drawing all the attention to that spot by doing so.

wait for the concealer to set and then apply foundation.You may also want to apply some powder so the spot remains hidden.

Once all of this settles, you can start applying your makeup.

DIY-Natural Beauty Treatments

Luxurious beauty treatments can take a backseat this season as you can try these  natural skin treatments that not only guarantee long lasting results but also ensure that your skin stays clean, fresh, smooth and blemish free.

Orange:

For those who suffer from tanning and pigmentation issues the best cure lies in applying the pulp of orange on your face on a daily basis. To make the pack thicker, you can combine banana or besan (Gram flour) with it. You can alternatively add some rose water while making the paste.

Papaya:

To ensure that your face stays nourished as well as free from marks and blemishes refrigerate half a papaya overnight and squash it well the following day. Apply this paste evenly on your face and keep it on for at least an hour and wash it away with lukewarm water.

 

Honey and Lemon:

For those who want to lighten their skin the best face pack to apply is honey and lemon. Just mix these two ingredients and keep it for 15 minutes and then wash it with lukewarm water.

Banana:

Take a ripe banana and mash it well. This will make your smooth, soft as well as shiny. To clear blemishes off your face, mash a ripe banana and apply it evenly on your face. You can also add a few drops of lemon to help lighten your skin and get rid of pigmentation.

 

 

Strawberry:

For those who suffer from fine line and wrinkles and ageing skin simply mash few strawberries and apply it directly on your face twice a week. Initially you might feel slight itch but once the pack settles it will give cooling effect and will brighten your face.
