Correcting small flaws with make-up

Summary of the issue

Correcting small flaws with make-up

A small pimple, dark circles, a few red spots... It’s not uncommon for our face to have small flaws. In real life, these marks cannot be erased with the beauty filters of social networks. However, they can easily be forgotten with make-up. How can you camouflage them? There’s a solution for every situation. We’ll tell you everything.

What make-up to use against dark circles?

The area under our eyes is particularly thin and fragile. Fatigue, advancing age or the consumption of alcohol or tobacco can lead to the appearance of coloured or hollowed-out dark circles. Those dark circles will darken your eyes. To restore the brightness of your eyes, it is important to moisturise the eye area. Then adopt the right gestures to correct and energise the eyes. So here are all our make-up tips to say goodbye to those under-eye bags.

Make-up: say no to redness

Redness on the face can have multiple causes. Appearing most often on very thin skin, they can be the result of a character trait (shyness, anger, etc.), environmental factors (sun, etc.) or certain situations (menopause, rosacea, etc.). This facial erythema is due to a dilation of the blood vessels of the skin and can be localised (on the cheeks for example) or spread to the whole face. To conceal this redness, make-up can work wonders. Two or three simple gestures will quickly convince you.

Make-up: We’re here to help you sort fact from fiction

This is both true and false. It can happen. Some products clog the pores of the skin. But that doesn't always happen. To prevent the appearance of pimples, choose the right products marked “non-comedogenic” and “high tolerance”.

This is false. It’s actually essential. At night, your skin needs to be rid of the make-up and impurities that have accumulated during the day. Don't skip make-up removal box, as removing impurities allows for better cell regeneration over night. When you wake up, your complexion will be brighter. Not to mention that not removing make-up accelerates skin ageing. So, every night, cleanse and moisturise your skin.

This is false. In fact, the opposite is true. Too much make-up can age you and freeze your features. It’s also easier to work with make-up when it’s applied in small touches.
