How to Cover a Hickey With Makeup

How to Hide a Hickey With Makeup

To quote the immortal lyricists of Def Leppard, love bites — and sometimes it leaves a mark. With Valentine's Day coming up tomorrow, it's the right time to revisit that teenage rite of passage: the hickey. Here are a few nibble-hiding makeup tips to help keep your night of passion discreet — because really, a hickey is hardly a classy look.

While I agree that intentionally giving one is hardly classy, it's not fair to assume that anyone who has one is immature. Some people like having heir neck kissed and bitten, and there's just no way around marks being left.

Really, people still do this out of grammer school? Really?

i knew someone that got one and we couldn't believe we still remembered the old high school tricks of using a cap of a lipstick or an ice cube to help it heal quicker.... so glad i'm past that... lol

this reminds me of a video I've seen where this wife and friend tricked the boyfriend that he'd won the lottery and he told her that he hated her so much that he'd even pinch her in her sleep and...."that's where the bruises came from?!". Ah, but it's also amazing how people notice hickeys like they look out for it.

Dude, I hope if you need this advice you are still in high school (maybe college!). Grown men don't leave hickeys !

Lol, this reminds me of junior year of high school. No amount of makeup would cover it. Needless to say, haven't had a hickey since.

I've always told boyfriends that hickeys were strictly off limits.

Hahaha, what a coincidence! My brother was trying to figure out what he should put to conceal it.

I love using tattoo concealer for hickeys. It seems to provide the best coverage, especially if you use a dab of green concealer under it and use a translucent powder over top (for added staying power).
