Expert tips for cloaking those zitsAh, the age-old problem of blemishes – how to treat them, how not to touch them, how to cover them up with makeup, how to prevent them from happening in the first place and keep those suckers at bay for good.

It's not uncommon for zit-troubled ladies to resort to every trick in the book. Many of you, undoubtedly, have probably tried the toothpaste maneuver at some point in your lives. But believe it or not, sometimes the most effective way to conceal a pimple is really the simplest one of all.

A red pimple can be knocked out with a yellow-tinted concealer, so don't try to combat like with like. With clean hands, dab the product onto your blemish with a brush or your finger in a circular motion, and then add more foundation on top as you normally would – using your finger may seem counter-intuitive, but your body heat will help break down the concealer and allow the product to blend more seamlessly into your skin. Setting with translucent powder will help keep your makeup intact and prevent your skin from becoming oily.

Additionally, a makeup product designed to treat and respond to breakouts can be the perfect way to kill two birds with one stone. Murad Acne Treatment Concealer treats blemishes as it hides them and works to prevent future breakouts.
