How To Hide Eczema With Makeup

Apr 16, 2018

Eczema, also known as ‘Atopic Dermatitis’ is a common skin condition that a lot of women face, so you are not alone. I must say that makeup is not the final solution, but while you’re treating it, you can use makeup to cover up problem areas to the maximum extent.

What You Will Need

1. Primer

Use a hydrating primer to take down a bit of the redness.

2. Liquid foundation

Use a high coverage waterproof foundation that is not too drying for your skin.

3. Blending sponge

Use the egg-shaped blending sponge or a Beauty Blender. Make sure it’s damp before you go in with the product for best results.

4. Concealer

Add a concealer that’s either creamy or liquidy. It’s essential to pick one that’s pigmented, yet it shouldn’t be caking up your face.

5. Setting powder

A hydrating powder is what you need to set your makeup and avoid that dreaded chalky finish.

6. Bronzer and blush

To warm up the skin, you can add a bronzer and blush to your routine. Avoid ones with shimmer or any form of glitter.

7. Setting spray

Use a hydrating mist to set your makeup in place and extend its staying power.

Step 1: Cleanse, Exfoliate, And Moisturize Your Skin

The key to perfect makeup application lies in a smooth base. With eczema, it’s often difficult to attain a completely smooth base, but it’s crucial to cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize your skin with a hydrating lotion before you go in with any other product.

Spray some hydrating mist on your beauty sponge to make it damp and take a little bit of liquid foundation on the sponge and blend it out properly all over your face.

For some warmth, add a bit of bronzer with a brush. Use a creamy blush on the apples of your cheeks to add a bit of color to your face. However, if you’re facing a lot of redness, then just the bronzer should suffice as it helps create a natural glow while balancing out any red patches.
