There probably isn’t anyone who hasn't experienced the dreaded pimple which shows up on the face for everyone to see. It often happens before a big date, meeting or presentation. Worry no more. By following these steps you can hide the pimple and face the world.

Difficulty: Moderately Easy

Things You'll Need:

  • Benzoyl peroxide
  • Redness reducing eye drops
  • Concealer
  • Cotton swab
  1. Step 1

    Dry out the pimple. The best products to do this are those with benzoyl peroxide. A good one to try is Peter Thomas Roth Max BPO Gel 10%.

  2. Step 2

    Soak a cotton swab in an eye product that removes redness, like Visine. This also removes the redness from a pimple to more easily hide it.

  3. Step 3

    Press the cotton swab against the affected area for approximately 10 seconds. Hold the cotton swab on longer if the redness is still livid.

  4. Step 4

    Select a concealer slightly lighter than your skin tone

  5. Step 5

    Apply a small amount of the concealer to the pimple. Do this by using another cotton swab, sponge or small makeup brush that allows you to control the application.

  6. Step 6

    Blend the edges of the concealer once it is dry and remove any excess. This will make the concealer less obvious.

  7. Step 7

    Apply the makeup you normally use while taking care not to remove the concealer.

    Tips & Warnings
    • You can use toner or products that contain salicylic acid in place of a product containing benzoyl peroxide to dry the pimple.
    • Use a clean cotton ball, swab, makeup sponge or makeup brush to touch the affected area. f you do not have any of these items, be sure you’re your hands are clean so you do not infect the area again.
    • Do not pop a pimple this will only make the affected area more red and visible.
    • Use a very small amount of concealer. Using too much will make the pimple more visible instead of hiding it.
