Base: Make sure your foundation is well blended before you venture into hiding your flaws. Having foundation in place before any corrector or concealer will ensure you don't use too much of the product and end up looking caked up.
Correct: Dab on some orange or green corrector
according to what your pimple looks like.
Blend: Blend the corrector in slightly using your finger tips.
Conceal: After using the colour corrector, apply a concealer and blend that in with a damp makeup sponge. This helps give an airbrushed finish.
Set: Set all your makeup in using a setting powder. This makes sure that your makeup does not melt and stays all day long.
