Hi. I'm Desiree and today we're going to show you how to cover a blemish. Starting with clean skin, go ahead and apply an oil-free moisturizer. Applying it mostly in the T zone and spreading out. After applying moisturizer you want to go in with a liquid foundation. Something with a medium coverage but buildable. Nothing too heavy and you want to evenly spread out starting along the t-zone and feathering out across the face. Then you want to go in and do spot covering on any blemishes, sunspots or redness. When choosing concealer for anything that has a red undertone, you want to go in with a yellow based concealer. For any if it's a sunspot, dark circle you want to go with a little more peachy and just slightly lighter than your foundation color. When doing spot concealing, you want to go in with a smaller brush, something with a finer point so you can get right in there and not apply too much around the other area. Take your time when doing spot concealing, it's not about applying a lot of make-up, it's about taking your time and doing layers, and seeing how much you need slowly. And you want to go in with a translucent setting powder and dab onto the area you just reseal, this will help to set it as well as hold it to the ring. And for the finally step you wanna take a larger brush into you setting powder and lightly dust over the T-zone area and underneath the eyes. this will your set your look and help hold it trough the day. And that is how you conceal a blemish and get a quality complexion. Thank you for watching Bella Sugar TV.
