How to choose a concealer shade, how to mask pimples and post-acne, and which brush is best to apply toning agents? Three experts answer these and other questions.

Prepare your skin for makeup
I recommend using light, water-based products before applying foundation, without oils - if the skin is prone to oily. It should be a moisturizing treatment for sensitive skin with soothing ingredients. If there are no open wounds on the face, it is possible with absorbent particles. Wipe face with a soothing toner and mask for oily / combination skin. La Roche-Posay has excellent care for such occasions. You can try Lotion Apaisante tonic. Also great face masks are from La Mer.
Now you need to remove the puffiness. I would recommend MAC's Fast Response Eye Cream This is a proprietary formula. Caffeinated toner removes dark circles and hydrates. I also use it pointwise on inflammations, it removes swelling on problem areas of the skin and, due to its texture, smoothes all peeling. Foundation or concealer is much easier to apply.
Combine multiple foundation
The tone should hide problem areas, and at the same time give a natural effect. MAC Studio Sculpt with silicones copes with the task.
I often combine several tonal concealers - acne doesn't always appear all over my face. Do not overload the skin - for places where there is no problem, use something lighter. The face can then be freshened up with MAC Studio Fix Thermal Water. This will also give a perfect shrinkage to the makeup.
Apply concealer last
Apply under-eye concealer over foundation and over problem areas as needed. My favorites are MAC Studio Fix Perfecting Stick and Tom Ford Correcting Pen.
The first one has a rounded tip - guarantees precise application. It masks redness well and lasts up to 7-8 hours. Helps freshen makeup quickly. And the product from Tom Ford perfectly masks, but imperceptibly on the skin, it seems to "eat" it! And yet it does not clog into the pores and does not roll. The corrector has two leads: pink - for correcting bruises under the eyes, yellow - for redness and breakouts.
Don't use powder unnecessarily
If you are doing makeup for filming, you can additionally use powder. In ordinary life, I advise you to apply it extremely rarely. It is better to do only with foundation and concealer.

Apply concealer with a special brush
I apply the concealer with the MAC 224 Tapered Blending Brush. The dense texture is distributed in an even layer, the movements are light and fast. Natural fine bristles absorb the right amount of product and are easy to clean.
Do not forget to wash the brush after each application - the cured concealer sticks together the hairs and harms the condition of the brush.

Use matting wipes
If you have problem skin and your face sweats, then it is better to remove excess moisture and sebum with special matting napkins.
Use moisture-resistant pigmented correctors (especially in summer)
It is better to hide imperfections with moisture-resistant pigmented correctors (when it comes to small areas of the skin). To mask redness (spider veins, rashes), apply a thin layer of corrector with green pigment under the foundation.
To mask breakouts and minor blemishes, I use Studio Skin 24 Hour Waterproof Concealer from Smashbox and Temptu, which are silicone-based. I apply concealer from Charlotte Tillbury under my eyes.
