There are very few people we know who have flawless skin. There are even fewer people who don't get pimples and acne. And more often than not, acne leaves behind marks when they go. Knowing how to cover up acne spots using makeup is really useful during such times.

No matter what we do, these marks seem to never really fade away. There are all sorts of creams and lotions available which claim that they'd help get rid of the dark spots in no time. These may or may not work for all.

  • Blend: Blend the concealer in by following slow dabbing motions and make sure you don't rub at it. Go in with another coat of foundation over this and blend with the same damp sponge to hide acne spots with makeup.
