Covering up blemishes and cold sores has been an issue from the beginning of time. If I know about the problem a head of time here are a few suggestions that I do before I handle the problem of covering it up.
* Drink a warm glass of water with 1 TBL Spoon of Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar twice a day.
* Celery juice is amazing for clearing skin, swelling and inflammation. In fact, I had a model on a Friday with a horrible break out of acne on Friday, she did the celery juice Saturday and Sunday, by Monday, her skin was visibly clearer!
* No alcohol
*Lots of water, add a squeeze of lemon
* Don’t pick the zits, ice them if it helps the pain.
* Don’t stress or obsess on it, my makeup tips will take care of them!
The best way I handle this annoying issue with models on a shoot or a bride on her wedding day, is to cover it with a heavy light colored concealer on the blemishes or cold sores. Use an eye cream before you add the concealer under the eye. It will look less “cakey” when the skin is hydrated.
Put your foundation on all over your face with a sponge or brush. Try not to use your hands, as they are oily and will only make your skin worse. I add concealer again after I finish doing the entire face, it brightens up the eye area and if those pesky zits are trying to pop through the foundation, it will give them an extra coat. The foundation looks better when it is layered then just putting on a huge amount at one time.
You can add some finishing powder to the skin it you have extra oily skin, but I prefer a fresh dewy look.
