You can go overboard with the concealer, and it won't make your makeup look "natural," as you'd prefer. "If too much concealer is applied, it will bunch up in the fine lines and wrinkles and make the skin look cakey and make wrinkles look more pronounced," says Jaliman.
What's more, "when you have a breakout, it is not best to pile on the concealer, as much as you may want to. The most important portion of controlling a breakout is not only letting your skin get the moisture and medicine it needs to clear, but also finding the proper way to disguise it if you are on the go," says Rachel Rosenberg, makeup stylist at Benefit Salon on Armitage.
"Usually, the best and most effective way to conceal breakouts is to lightly dab the concealer onto the affected area and blend lightly outward. This is accomplished very well with aerated products, such as Benefit's Boi~ing Airbrush Concealer ($20)."
