When covering blemishes, it is best to use a concealer with a thick consistency. Apply it with a small brush to the affected area. Then with a cotton swab, blend out the edges of the concealer on the surrounding skin. Then take another clean cotton swab, dip it in powder, and roll it on the blemish to set the overall concealer. Remember it’s easier to apply a little bit than too much, where you might have to remove it and start over. Start by using as little coverage as possible and add more as you need it. If there’s a large affected area, then simply use the same technique, but use a larger concealer brush. And be sure to clean your brushes after each use with warm, soapy water, allowing them to dry overnight.
