8 Ways to Cover Blemishes on the Lightest Skin ...

By Heather

So I have pretty light skin, but finding the right ways to cover blemishes on skin that is even lighter than mine can be hard! So girls, I took your tips and comments and I came up with the top 8 ways to cover blemishes on even the lightest skin in the world! You pale, pale beauties, you ready to explore my ways to cover blemishes that will work on ivory (or lighter!) skin?

1 Gentle Cleanser

First and foremost, you want to make sure that you are using a gentle cleanser on your face. For me, I use Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser. This works not only to fight off any acne that seems to break out or any forming acne that I have. Trust me ladies, this is definitely an important step on the top ways to cover blemishes.

2 Pat Dry

After you've cleansed, the next way to cover blemishes is to actually pat your face dry. The reasoning behind this is because if you rub your face dry, it can actually cause a lot more redness and can actually lead to more breakouts. So girls, before you dry off, remember to pat everything down on your face and to be gentle!

3 Thin Coat of Moisturizer

After your face is all dry, the next way to cover blemishes is to add on a thin coat of moisturizer. You want to do just a thin coat, that way you can make sure that you don't get too oily. You can add a bit more to the areas where you have dry skin though. Keep that in mind!

4 Clean Damp Makeup Sponge

Once you get your moisturizer on, the next step is to actually dampen up a makeup sponge. This will actually help spread your makeup around a bit, but also ensure that the shade of your foundation lightens up. You don't need the sponge to be wet though, just damp.

5 Match Your Shade

Sometimes, when you have really, really light skin, it's really hard to actually find a shade that is going to work for you. If you have this problem, just get a shade that is the lightest – then we'll lighten it even up! So girls, find your shade and then move onto the next step!

6 Dab Foundation on

After you find a shade that is going to work for you, the next thing you want to do, is make sure that you are taking your damp makeup sponge and you are dabbing your foundation on. You want to dab it onto any blemishes that you might have. This is a great way to cover blemishes on your light, light skin!

7 Buff Skin with a Cotton Facial Pad

After you dab, the next part is really important – you want to take a strong cotton pad and actually buff the section that you dabbed, that way you can actually blend it all in. The cotton pad should be sturdy cotton, otherwise it could fall apart or leave cotton pieces on your face.

8 Keep It Thin

Finally ladies, whenever you have super light skin, you just want to make sure that you are keeping it all thin! You never want your skin to look cakey, as it typically shows up more on light skin. So ladies, one way to cover blemishes on super light skin is to remember to keep it all light and airy!
