Cover blemishes naturally without using concealer
Many adults who feel changes in their skin are probably worried about the ever-increasing number of spots. When it comes to concealing blemishes, concealer is common, but in fact, even if you blindly layer concealer, it will look like a thick coat, and it may even make the part you want to hide stand out.
In this article, we will explain how to hide light spots and melasma on the cheeks well, and how to deal with dark spots that cannot be covered.
Cover light spots and melasma with kneaded blush and foundation
When hiding blemishes, the golden rule is to “minimize with a thin coat”. What you want to use there is “kneaded teak”. Covering with a mixture of kneaded blush and liquid foundation can hide blemishes naturally, so it is especially recommended for those who are in their fifties.
■ The color of kneaded teak is all-purpose red
Originally, orange-colored cheeks are easier to hide blemishes, but there is a risk that people with blue-based skin will see them. The red kneaded blush is convenient because it can be used by anyone regardless of skin color.
■ Mix kneaded cheek and foundation
Take a blush paste on the back of your hand and a small amount of liquid foundation next to it, then use the back of your hand as a palette to blend the two shades together.
■Apply thinly to blemishes and melasma
Apply a thin layer to areas of concern such as chloasma and blemishes on the cheeks. It is OK to paint over a wide area, focusing on areas of concern, without limiting it to the “cheek” area. You can cover light spots naturally.
For generations that tend to have dull skin, “complexion” is a very important point. With kneaded cheeks, you can create a naturally healthy and youthful image. By using a warm swelling color, you can naturally reproduce the complexion of your cheeks after taking a bath, and it also has the effect of making your skinny cheeks look plump and fleshy. In addition, it reduces the feeling of thick foundation and makes you look younger!
Hide dark blemishes with layers of foundation and loose powder
For dark spots that cannot be covered with kneaded blush and foundation, use “Mille-feuille coating”.
■ Apply loose powder to stains
First, apply a foundation all over your face, then apply a thin layer of loose powder to the dark spots. The point is to smooth the base of the adult skin, which tends to shake easily, with powder and harden it.
■Repeatedly apply foundation and powder
After that, take a small amount of liquid foundation on your finger and layer it on the dark spots. Then apply powder again. Layer foundation → powder → foundation → powder in order like a mille-feuille to cover well. At this time, the foundation to be layered can be substituted with concealer.
