Get Peyton-perfect skin with this coverup routine


It's a constant struggle—you want to cover up your blemishes, but piling on the makeup to get a flawless face only leads to more zits.Thankfully, the dermatologists and makeup artists of the world are here to help. Break the breakout cycle with this easy five-step routine.

Step 1: Moisturize 

The acne treatments you slather on to stop spots can be really drying...and putting makeup on dry skin is never a good look. To stay flake-free, apply an oil-free moisturizer before putting on makeup. It won’t clog your pores and helps to smooth out rough spots for more even foundation application.

Step 2: Prime

Shadow primer is typically used to make eye makeup pop and last longer, but—surprise!—it also works on zits. Use a sheer, matte shadow primer on your pimples to help coverup stay put. It will keep you covered way longer than traditional facial formulas.


Step 3: Powder 

Applying powder before adding concealer can help absorb some of the oil your skin produces in blemish-prone areas. Don't go crazy, though—a little bit will do the trick.

Step 4: Conceal 

Use a thin brush to apply your concealer and blend away. Be careful to blend around, rather than on top of, the spot to avoid added irritation. Bonus tip: Concealer with yellow or greenish undertones helps to mask redness.

Step 5: Finishing Touches 

Finish up with another thin layer of powder over the concealer and voila—it's almost like that zit was never there. Our little secret!
