Pimples are always a problem, no matter what time of the year it is. But during the winter, it can be even harder to conceal them. You’re no longer sporting a sun-kissed tan, which can help to hide imperfections. And the bitter cold air can make your face flaky and tight, making it difficult to cover. What you need is a concealer that hydrates while it hides. We’ve got you covered with these five skin-smoothing options.
1. A Corrective Stick
Concealer sticks, like Vichy Dermafinish Corrective Foundation Stick, provide lightweight coverage that doesn’t cake or flake.
2. A Creamy Pencil
A chubby concealer pencil, such as Urban Decay 24/7 Concealer Pencil, allows for super-precise application, so you never use more than you need.
3. A Built-In Brush
Packed with anti-aging properties, L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Serum Absolute Concealer keeps skin moisturized and doesn’t creep into fine lines.
4. A Perfecting Pot
Use a lip-lining brush to apply potted, cream-based formulas, like NYX Cosmetics Above & Beyond Full Coverage Concealer directly onto large zits.
5. A Winning Wand
Wands allow for extra acne-hiding accuracy. Try products like Lancôme Maquicomplet Complete Coverage Concealer, which is made up of rich, camouflaging color that diverts light (and attention) from problem spots.
