How to Cover Moles With Makeup
Moles are growths on the skin that usually have a darker color, brown or pink, and are either flat or stick out of the skin. They can be anywhere on your body and although there are some which may even be attractive, others have quite the opposite effect. So if you have a mole that upsets you and that causes you some discomfort, there are a number of tricks to help you make them virtually invisible. If you want to know what they are, pay attention to this OneHowTo article on how to cover moles with makeup.
One of the best tricks to cover those spots that you want to hide, is by using a concealer. There are different shades of concealer to help you make these skin blemishes invisible. Out of sight, out of mind!
- To cover brown moles and darker birth marks, you must apply an orange or salmon concealer first and then cover it with one in a beige color.
- For moles that have a more rosy hue, it is the best to first apply some yellow concealer and then another in beige.
You can apply this cosmetic directly onto the mole with your fingertips, giving light touches with your fingers or with a specific makeup brush, as you prefer.
If you do not have these concealers or if you are not convinced, you can also try to cover moles with your usual foundation makeup. A liquid foundation which perfectly suits your skin tone is the most preferable option. Apply it over the area and then place a little translucent powder and a little talcum powder on top. This trick is also widely used to reduce wrinkles and other facial imperfections.
There are women who may have several moles on their face. They may not want to hide all of them because they find one or two attractive and sexy. If this is how you feel and you want to cover all but one facial mole, then pay attention to the following trick. Just apply your usual makeup base, and at the end moisten a cotton swab with a little water and press lightly on the mole that you want to highlight. Ready! This way, only that particular birth mark or mole is visible while all others remain hidden.
To cover a mole on more complicated parts of the body, it is advisable to replace liquid foundation for mineral powders. They will not be noticed too much and these powders provide greater fixation and duration, so you will keep the mark camouflaged for longer.
At the supermarket, you can find depigmentation creams, which tone down the color of your moles and birth marks to achieve a more even and unified skin tone. These creams should be applied at night so that they have time to work. It is always advisable to consult your dermatologist before using these types of lotions to rule out any possible skin damage.
These tips will help you cover a mole, but they will not remove them completely. Remember at all times the importance of being aware of every aspect of moles that appear on your body and visit your dermatologist if you see any sign or alteration in the color or shape of these marks.
