If you have acne-prone skin, use a full coverage, opaque concealer that comes in a pot or stick form. Makeup artists recommend this type of concealer since it has grip and adheres to your skin longer and that they’re the best concealer for acne prone skin.
There are general rules for picking a concealer such as pick a concealer that matches your skin tone perfectly. The last thing you want is multiple tones drawing attention to a blemish.
For acne-prone skin, concealers that contain acne-fighting ingredients are a plus. For example, Murad Acne Treatment Concealer contains 2% salicylic acid, a powerful ingredient for treating acne.
The rule of thumb for applying concealers to the skin is always make sure your skin is hydrated, apply moisturizer and a lightweight foundation first, so a bit of your skin’s natural texture shows through.
Then, pat on your opaque concealer with your finger to warm up the formula and take away the redness and finally, top it with a creamier formula to give the skin depth and make everything blend seamlessly.
