If a pesky zit or mark is still poking through, go back and hide it with an extra layer of concealer.
Use the same kind as in step one (it worked for Alice’s forehead scratch), or try a cover-up that contains salicylic acid, like Almay Clear Complexion Concealer, which helps shrink blemishes while it camouflages. Dab it onto problem areas with a pointed brush instead of slicking it on from the tube. Right on top of the blemish, “it’s not meant to be totally blended in,” says Rizzieri, but to avoid cakeyness, use your ring finger to pat its perimeter outward until smooth.
Expert tip: For staying power, apply powder over top with a puff to absorb oil and to keep cover-up from sliding off midday.
