How To Cover Dark Spots On Face With Makeup


If you’re tired of dark spots, skip foundation and try a good concealer. You can use concealer to cover up dark spots, but keep in mind that it won’t work as well on dry skin or if you have a lot of wrinkles around the area. You may also want to invest in a good primer before applying your makeup so that your makeup stays put all day long!

Choose a concealer with yellow undertones

  • Yellow concealers are good for covering up dark spots.
  • Green concealers are good for covering redness.
  • Orange concealers are good for covering blemishes.
  • Pink concealers are good for covering dark circles.

Select the right texture

In general, liquid concealer is the best choice for areas around your eyes, such as dark spots. It can be applied using a brush or straight from the tube. Cream concealer works well to cover up dark circles under your eyes and blemishes on other parts of your face. Concealer sticks are best for targeting small areas like scars or birthmarks. Powder conceals large areas, making it ideal for covering up dark spots and discolorations on legs or arms that you’d like to disguise with makeup instead of shaving off.

Keep it light

The goal of using concealer is to cover up dark spots. If you apply too much, the result will be a cakey mess that makes your skin look even darker. You need to find the right balance between concealing and blending in with your natural skin tone.

  • Use a light hand—it’s easy to go overboard when applying makeup, especially when it comes to something like concealer! To make sure you don’t end up with an unnatural look, make sure you’re not spreading too much product around on your face.
  • Choose the right color—If your chosen shade isn’t light enough or breaks down into an orangey or greenish tone once applied, then it won’t work for covering dark spots (or anything else). You want something that matches as closely as possible without being stark white against your skin tone and looks natural while still concealing those pesky flaws!

Start in the center of the spot and blend outwards.

  • Start in the center of the spot and blend outwards.
  • Don’t overdo it.

Don’t go overboard

  • Don’t go overboard. The goal is to make the dark spot look like it was never there, not to try and hide it with concealer that’s the same color as your skin.
  • You’ll be able to tell where you’ve applied too much concealer—it will look cakey, heavy and unnatural instead of like your own skin tone.
  • If you have more than one dark spot on your face, don’t try to cover them all at once—you’re likely to end up looking like a clown with painted-on makeup. Instead, focus on covering one dark area at a time so that it looks natural.

You can use concealer to cover up dark spots

If you’re looking for a way to cover up dark spots, look no further than your makeup bag. Concealer is an easy way to hide anything from acne scars to undereye circles and even minor blemishes. The best part about using concealer as a spot corrector is that it’s quick and easy to use—just swipe it on with your fingers or a brush and blend until you achieve the desired coverage.

While you can use any type of concealer on blemishes, we recommend using one that matches your skin tone closest. For example, if you have very dark under-eye circles (and therefore also have very dark circles under your eyes), stick with a shade that’s close to your natural skin color rather than trying something lighter or darker just because it looks good on someone else’s face. Likewise, if you need help covering up redness around pimples or broken capillaries, try using a yellow-toned product instead of one with pink or lavender undertones–it will neutralize those angry colors without giving them the chance to show through!


We hope that this post has helped you understand how to use concealer to cover dark spots. The best thing to do is practice on your own skin and experiment with different products until you find something that works for you. Remember, it might take a while before you find the perfect color match, so don’t get discouraged! If all else fails, remember there are other ways to conceal dark spots such as using foundation or makeup primer underneath your concealer application.
