    Here are a few makeup tips for you!

    *Pressed Powder Foundation

    Using a cotton wool ball, press down and swirl gently in the powder container and then press the cotton wool ball on areas on your face. This helps it to stay on longer!

    *Liquid foundation

    With all foundations, make sure you have the right colour for your skin tone.

    If you want a thick, even coverage then apply the foundation to your face using a cosmetic sponge.

    For an easier but thinner coverage, use your fingertips to blend into your face.

    *Mousse foundation

    Applying with your fingertips is the best way. Did you know that mousse foundation is actually powder?

    *Liquid Concealer

    Apply dots under your eyes in a crescent-moon shape and dab using the tip of your middle finger. Don't rub - this wipes the concealer off!


    Smile! Apply a small amount onto a blusher brush and blend onto your apples in a circular motion.

    Another way of applying it so that it doesn't look so dramatic is to dab on TINY amounts using your finger and rub in circular motions to blend.


    Use a white eyeliner on your bottom waterline to make your eyes appear bigger.

    Using any other colour eyeliner you like, apply just underneath your bottom lashes. Then roll a cotton bud (or q tip I think they're called in America, idk) gently into some petroleum jelly (vaseline) and use it to smudge and blend your eyeliner in. Same technique can be used for applying eyeliner on your eyelids.


    ALWAYS use an eyelash curler BEFORE applying mascara. When applying, apply in a zigzag motion. This helps to coat all the lashes. Remember to use an eyelash brush inbetween coats to make your lashes appear more natural.


    The key is to exfoliate! Roll a cotton bud in some petroleum jelly (like with the eyeliner!), then roll it in some sugar and swirl gently on your lips for 30 seconds, then wash that off and apply petroleum jelly to your lips.

    Hope you found these helpful! :)♥

    I think that concealer would be less cakey than foundation,and it can help cover up the annoying zits and the dark scar.Neutrogena has good concealers and foundations for all skin types and it's healthy for your skin so try a neutrogena concealer and foundation.I hope this helps!

  • I would use green concealer to put on the acne then put on pressed power in the color that matches your face. Then i would blend it all together with a little foundation. I like this saying when i am putting on makeup "less is more". I will put links below to show you want i use. Hope this helps:)
