How to Cover Acne Breakouts Dark Spots with Makeup
Hey guys, thank you so much for tuning into my channel. Today, I'm going to be showing you a full coverage foundation. Now, mostof my foundation routines are full coverage, even my everyday casual no makeup routinesare full coverage, because I have olive skin, hyperpigmented skin, undereye circles thatare crazy, and lots of imperfections that probably only I notice. I have a pretty bad it's not that bad but, for right now and for most recently, my skin has been reallygood, so now I feel like it's really bad. I definitely struggled with acne the mostin middle school and in high school. Now, I definitely feel like if I get an acne breakout,I know why, it's usually something that I
did, like drinking or eating or not workingout or stressing or not sleeping enough. Normally, in these situations, I will hide from socialmedia and from the general pubic, unless I can't avoid it, but I thought that this timearound, I would instead try to help some of you who could benefit from some of the tipsthat I use. Yaaaaaaaaaay! I will also teach you how to contour and highlight, which ifdone wrong, when you have an acne breakout, it could make your breakout stand out evenmore, which you don't want. So I hope you enjoy this tutorial, thank you so much for watching,let's go ahead and get started. First up for products, I'm never without my Neutrogenahealthy skin primer, this is my favorite.
I never believed in primer, until I startedusing this, honestly, and what I'll do is I'll paint on a thick coat yeah, not justa pea size, a THICK coat all over, especially on dark and dry spots. And, as you can andwill see, it lightens, it brightens, it smooths your pores and blemishes, even scabs, and most importantly it protects and nourishes my skin. I honestly feel like this preventsbreakouts, and it keeps my makeup on all day long. Like, I'm convinced it's waterproof,and I honestly can't say enough good things. I'm gonna grab a spoolie brush to gently flickoff any dry skin flakes that have now softened from the primer. And make sure that that brushis clean, or else you could end up with some
mustaches all over your face. Now for foundation.This is my obsession, Studio Fix fluid. But rather than using concealer, which can soeasily be spotty and require a lot of retouching, I just brush and build up this full coveragefoundation, which covers absolutely every imperfection. I'll layer it up first in thedarkest areas, work my way all over, and then revisit areas that need it. I do like usinga foundation that is one to three shades lighter than my skin. This helps with hiding darkspots and also gives me a little shortcut with contouring and highlighting. And I'msure that there are people watching who are gonna say that full coverage foundation iswhat's causing all of my breakouts, which
it's not true, I will save that for anothertutorial, but I do wanna say that if you skip primer and if you're not washing your face,you are going to break out no matter what you're using, whether it's full coverage foundation,sheer foundation or even face paint, so those two steps are very important. And no blendingbrushes here, because we really wanna build up that coverage. Now for some color, I'musing two different bronzers, because parts of my skin are dry and parts of my skin areoily. So first up, I'm using a powder on my cheeks, which have some blemishes. I'm gonnaavoid that area, because I don't want to make spots darker or for the area to look evenmore bumpy, so I'm just sculpting my cheeks
by going along the outer rounds and then alongmy jawline. I'm also a nose contour person. If I'm breaking out here, I will skip thisstep completely, because I don't want the bumps to make a crooked line. It's not toobad today though, so I'm gonna go ahead and do it. As for my forehead, it is super dryand broken out; powder would definitely make any flakes or bumps stand out even more, soI'm using a soft solid and blending with my finger, definitely focusing on my hairlineand not where there is a lot of irritation. Now, I do use some concealer, only aroundmy eyes, which are the hardest and biggest dark spots on my face to cover. I actuallycall them my panda circles. And you'll see
What are those floaty things in your eye Michael Mauser
Have you ever noticed something swimmingin your field of visioné It may look like a tiny wormor a transparent blob, and whenever you try to geta closer look, it disappears, only to reappearas soon as you shift your glance. But don't go rinsing out your eyes! What you are seeing is a common phenomenon known as a floater. The scientific name for these objectsis Muscae volitantes,
Latin for quot;flying flies,quot; and true to their name,they can be somewhat annoying. But they're not actually bugsor any kind of external objects at all. Rather, they exist inside your eyeball. Floaters may seem to be alive,since they move and change shape, but they are not alive. Floaters are tiny objectsthat cast shadows on the retina, the lightsensitive tissueat the back of your eye.
They might be bits of tissue, red blood cells, or clumps of protein. And because they're suspendedwithin the vitreous humor, the gellike liquidthat fills the inside of your eye, floaters drift alongwith your eye movements, and seem to bounce a littlewhen your eye stops. Floaters may be onlybarely distinguishable most of the time.
They become more visiblethe closer they are to the retina, just as holding your hand closerto a table with an overhead light will result in a moresharply defined shadow. And floaters are particularly noticeable when you are lookingat a uniform bright surface, like a blank computer screen, snow, or a clear sky,
where the consistency of the backgroundmakes them easier to distinguish. The brighter the light is,the more your pupil contracts. This has an effect similarto replacing a large diffuse light fixture with a single overhead light bulb, which also makesthe shadow appear clearer. There is another visual phenomenonthat looks similar to floaters but is in fact unrelated. If you've seen tiny dots of lightdarting about
when looking at a bright blue sky, you've experienced what is knownas the blue field entoptic phenomenon. In some ways,this is the opposite of seeing floaters. Here, you are not seeing shadows but little moving windowsletting light through to your retina. The windows are actually causedby white blood cells moving through the capillariesalong your retina's surface. These leukocytes can be so largethat they nearly fill a capillary
