Step 1

The first step in applying your make-up is to ensure that your face is clean and fresh; the best way to do this is to thoroughly cleanse, tone then moisturise the skin. Make sure you use products that are suitable for your skin type.

Step 2

The concealer is the next step in the process; make sure you purchase a good quality concealer that matches your own skin tones. Concealers that are of the incorrect shade could actually accentuate the mole rather than help to cover it over, the best way to apply this is with a foundation brush, as it it helps to blends it into your skin, providing good coverage.

Step 3

Next you need to apply your foundation. Again make use of the foundation brush to easily blend in the foundation to your whole face and neck. Make sure that the colour of the foundation is close to your own skin colour.

To finish the application, make use of a translucent powder. This helps to set the foundation and the concealer to give a more natural look and helps in keeping the make-up on and looking flawless. Using a large powder brush apply this over the face and neck.

This technique should then help to cover over the mole and you can apply the rest of your make-up as you wish. If you find that no matter what type of make-up or how you apply it covers up the mole sufficiently there is now a great range of camouflage make-up that you could try out.
