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
