Your Questions About Use Makeup To Cover Acne

Thomas asks…

What makeup can i use to cover acne scars?

I have tried covering my acne scars but my makeup just wont cover it or it fades in a couple minutes. Any suggestions on makeup that will cover and stay? Thanks guys :].

jennmill answers:

Use foundation primer first, because it fills in fine lines and pores BEFORE you put the makeup on (I’m sure it would help with scars also.) Smashbox foundation primers are really good, and Sephora has small “trial” sized ones that are cheaper than the full size, if you want to just try it out first. Then use an illuminating foundation, it reflects light off of you face so you don’t notice blemishes. I use Stila Illuminating Foundation. But if you don’t want to spend that much on it, you can buy the Stila Illuminating Liquid, and mix a little into a drugstore foundation. That works pretty well too.

Donald asks…

Can I use makeup to cover my back acne scars?

At one point, when I was younger, I had back acne, because of the excessive use of hair products. Now, that I’m older, I notice that there are scars there. I’m not sure how to medically get rid of them, BUT I plan on seeing a dermatologist. The problem is, that I am getting married soon (too soon for any dermitological help), and I have a backless dress. What kind of makeup can I use, if ANY to cover the scars. HELP PLEASE, I don’t have a lot of time.

jennmill answers:

MAC sells a face and body foundation. It’s not cheap, but it comes in alot of shades so you shouldn’t have a problem finding one that matches to your skin tone.

There’s also another brand(I can’t think of the name) that can be found at Target. It’s cheaper and in a larger container.

ETA: Coverblend is another brand. You can find it at Ulta.
