Our 5 Favourite Products to Cover Up Those Pesky Blemishes

No matter how hard I try to keep my skin silky smooth and acne free - those pesky little buggers decide to pop up at the worst of times. I mean seriously, on my birthday?!

I wash my face and use many serums and products all the time, but sometimes other factors, like stress, hormones, and the weather come into play, and you just can't prevent that pimple from unexpectedly arising.

But this is when I praise my makeup drawer. Your sneaky little pimple may pop up when I least expect it, but you certainly are NOT invited, and you will be covered up! Here are some of my go-to's to cover up those unwanted spots.

Revlon Photo Ready Concealer

This product has to be one of my favourites for covering up blemishes. It's readily available at the drug store and under $10 - what a steal! The formula is relatively thick without it feeling caked onto your face. With one swipe across the problem area, it is almost completely camouflaged and I feel ready to take on the day. Plus, it contains SPF 20 and works on sensitive skin.

Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup

Many people have been loving the Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup - I mean, it even has acne in its name - so it's bound to be bomb! This 8- hour wear liquid makeup neutralizes redness and blends away blemishes. It feels fresh and looks natural, and the medicated ingredients help treat existing breakouts and keeps them from coming back. BRB running to Sephora NOW!

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

AThis award-winning concealer provides medium-full, buildable coverage and corrects, contours, highlights, and perfects. I've been using this beauty since high school to mask and blur any imperfections. It helps even out my complexion and is even loaded with ingredients like vitamin E to help hydrate my skin.

Revlon Dream True Matte Mousse Foundation

I happened upon this foundation randomly, as I was sleeping over at a friend's house and forget my makeup. I used this product and felt as though all of my skin blemishes instantly disappeared. The formula is mousse-y but very light and makes you feel like you're a walking Instagram filter as soon as you put it on, which is the best feeling ever!

Laura Mercier Flawless Ultra Longwear Concealer

This cult-favourite provides a medium to full coverage, and is a weightless concealer that perfects, hydrates and blurs with up to 12 hours of crease-resistant wear. The concealer flexes with skin to seamlessly conceal any facial imperfections (i.e., acne and scarring!). It is super lightweight and feels almost undetectable on the skin. A total game changer.
