Achieving flawless skin is everyone’s goal. Dark spots are part of life! Therefore, you should embrace them as you work towards getting clear skin. However, it takes time to achieve it, which means you need to have tricks to hide dark spots. Here are effective makeup tricks to mask dark spots.
Use a Primer
A primer is well known for its primary function, which is helping makeup last the whole day. Surprisingly, it also plays a significant role in hiding dark spots. Priming creates a balanced, absorbing power throughout the face.
This means that your foundation will uniformly cover the entire face, including dark spots. Thus, do not underestimate the power of a primer when it comes to hiding dark spots. Use an eye cream for dark circles when prepping your skin to ensure no dark spot appears above your makeup.
