Lauren December 13, 2015 BEAUTY There are many people who have decided to have their skin inked with what they thought at the time was the perfect tattoo. But soon after, they have lost interest in that design or regretted their decision of having their skin inked. Many of us do not make it out of childhood or teen years without some type of scar or imperfection that creates insecurity. How do you hide it whenever you go out somewhere? Is it that you do not want it to be seen on a daily basis, or is it that you wish to hide it for some particular occasion? There have been questions from women about the effectiveness of the cosmetic products in erasing and eliminating serious skin conditions. Are they able to fully erase such flaws? You must have heard of a concealer as a makeup product. If you have been wondering whether or not a skin perfecting concealer can hide blemishes, marks on your skin and even tattoos, you will be happy to find the answers in this article. Hyperpigmentation and scars due to age among teenagers As any professional makeup specialist will tell you, a light layer of moisturizer and concealer can help you in hiding many of these scars due to pigmentation. You have to first apply a light layer of tinted moisturizer to your skin as this forms the base so that you require a small amount of coverage later. For all those areas which are highly pigmented, put some cream and apply it with fingers or use a sponge to create the softer look. Then you can use the concealer around your nose and other blemished areas to brighten up your complexion. Tattoos in your wrist If you have a tattoo on your wrist for example and you do not wish to show it off while you go out, you can use a concealer to hide these marks. However, it is very important to find the perfect shade to fit your type of skin. You can first use a Tattoo primer with a small brush in order to neutralize any green hues that are in the skin. Then cover the skin with the concealer to smooth out the top layer and blend around the edges. Once you repeat this process a few times, you will soon see that the tattoo is no longer visible. Only the outline of the raised portion of the skin will be visible. A 4-inch burn on one of your knees If you have a burn mark on one of your knees, this can also be hidden with the help of a concealer. Start by applying the concealer with a small brush and then blend it with a fluffy one. The texture of concealers is opaque and you can actually paint it on. Build a natural-looking coverage and with a few pumps of moisturizer, you can bring out the warm undertones of your skin. You may use the Touch Mineral Skin Perfecting Concealer from Younique in order to achieve the best effects in hiding your blemishes, scars and tattoos.
