Whether the breakout is large or small, everyone struggles with acne, even your favorite celebrities. That may be hard to imagine, considering that Hollywood stars like Camila Cabello, we never see their pimples.
Allan Avendaño, who works with the “Havana” singer, as well as Vanessa Hudgens and Sarah Hyland reveals everything you need to make your acne disappear like magic:
“Then I’ll go in with a foundation, using a buffing brush—I think Sephora or IT Cosmetics makes like a foundation buffing brush—and I like to put the foundation on with that and swirl it around the face really gently. I don’t use a beauty blender or anything like that only because I think the beauty blender absorbs the product and you want the product to get on but you want to buff it into your skin instead of like patting it on.”
“Then I’ll spot treat with a concealer on the spot and kind of like you know kind of pat it in or use like a stiff, synthetic concealer brush to kind of pat in the product into the pimple. Afterwards, I go on about my business try to get the makeup routine done and add anything I need to add and then at the end, if that pimple is still sort of sticking out, I’ll go back in with a concealer again and then pat it in again. The thing is, you don’t want to over over do it…If it sticks out a little bit more, I’ll just cover it up and then I’ll set it with a little translucent powder. It usually does the trick.”
“I do love using It Cosmetics, for someone that needs a lot of coverage, I feel that it does the trick and a little goes a long way. So when you’re trying to cover a pimple, I mean literally it takes just a little bit. You could even use the Bye Bye Undereye concealers that they have and it’s like a little tube, you can squeeze out a little bit and you can actually use it almost as a foundation. It just covers so well. They also have Bye Bye Redness, which, you know if you have a problem with something super red, you can use that to kind of cover it up before you put on the foundation.”
“I use [Urban Decay Naked Skin] for everything from covering up pimples to covering up under-eye circles. I love those things! They have a green one. They have a peach one. They have a pink one, and I have to tell you, sometimes even if [your skin is] red and obviously people tend to go with green to kind of cancel out the red. I’ll use the peach one over it and it’ll cover it. The deep peach, the pink, is universal. I love that even the yellow one is incredible. So, that’s sort of like my trick. And I love it also because if I’m covering up a pimple of some sort, it’s not as heavy as a heavy cream color corrector would be.”
“You know when you try to cover pimples obviously, you’re using concealers and then you’re going to set it with powder…I love to use a mist, like a setting mist. Whether it’s just like, Evian water or Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Mist or the Mac Cosmetics Fix Plus….I love that it helps everything kind of just adhere to your face. It has a really dewy, luminous finish. And then after that, you can go back in with a little powder to get in the areas like the sides of your nose, your forehead and your chin.”
