Acne: how to hide pimples without applying makeup?
Hiding your buttons without applying makeup is impossible! It is still necessary to carry out a minimum of care. “We apply at least one moisturizing and soothing cream,” recommends Carine Larchet.

So, we cleanse our face with soap without soap, micellar water that we use by tapping and not by rubbing and we think, of course, of removing make-up from the mouth with a cotton pad, the eyes with two other cotton pads.
Well made up even with a mask!
The wearing of masks to protect themselves and others from Covid-19, hide three-quarters of the face. This is no reason not to wear makeup anymore. Simply, instead of betting everything on the mouth and the lipstick, it is better to enhance the upper part of the face: the forehead, the eyebrows, the eyes.
Here is the advice of Carine Larchet, an Active Cosmetics makeup artist.
- We start with the concealer: to bring light and radiance to the eyes, we think of applying an eye contour treatment. How to choose your concealer? A tone is lighter than her skin tone. Golden beige corrects pigmented dark circles, pinkish beige illuminates. It is applied by making small short lines all around the eye: like rays of the sun, and we smooth outwards.
- We structure our eyebrows: there are several solutions. You can just brush your eyebrows and apply a little hairspray on a suitable brush to tame them. You can also pick up their character with a pencil. It should be chosen neither too greasy nor too dry and apply it from the bottom to the top, following the curve of the eyebrows.
- We draw our eyes: we start by working the outline of the eye in pencil: brown, grey, bronze, plum or black. We first shade the level of the lower lashes, starting from the inner corner and working towards the outside. Continue with an eyeshadow of the same tone that you blur while moving up slightly on the eyelid. And we finish with mascara of course to enhance the look!
