Covering Up Blemishes

powder, concealer, cc corrector

My skin has been particularly bad lately and a girl has to do what a girl has to do, cover up all the badness and pretend she has good skin. It’s an art that when you practice pretty much everyday you become a little adept at. I’ve got it covered from calming everything down to hiding that redness that we all know.

I seem to sing the praises of the Avene Cleanance Expert Serum all the time but it really is the best thing for making my red slightly swollen face into something that actually represents my face ya know. I don’t know the magic behind it, but all I know is it works. It works well. If you don’t get on with the Effaclar Duo +, then this could really be your secret weapon as it’s so much gentler.

Who knew that green covered red? Because I feel so late to the party, later than the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland (I’ve watched too much Once Upon a Time). Max Factor is a brand that’s always just been there, but recently I’ve felt more drawn to actually try out their products. The CC Colour Corrector is almost like a gift from the gods. My redness is pretty much gone once I’ve swiped this on and blended it out. I ain’t ever going to be without this again.

Are you even surprised to see the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer here? It is the best thing since sliced bread. It’s full coverage and lasts for as long as I need it to. I will admit I flit between this and the Seventeen Stay Time concealer because they are pretty much the same thing and cover up any spots that just need to get gone already.

Loose powder is a new revelation to me. It might be slightly messier but it just lasts way longer too. I’m talking about skipping on powdering throughout the whole day kinda lasting power. The Rimmel Lasting Perfection Loose Powder is my current go to, and apparently it’s been discontinued so I apologise if you you can’t find it out there. A tear might have been shed (slight exaggeration, but I will be stocking up) when I found out because it really is the equivalent of a shield to stop the whole redness/spot shining through.
