Temptalia Asks You


What’s your go-to product to minimize/soften skin imperfections? Share your secrets!

Temptalia's AnswerFirst, foundation/concealer is always good for evening out the skin tone.  For giving skin a soft focus look, I like Guerlain Meteorites.

    My Proactiv Benzoyl Peroxide Treatment. The only one gentle enough for my sensitive skin.

  2. it’s all about moisture. drinking lots of water to stay hydrated, moisturizing well before makeup application, and moisturizing afterward with a spritz of water makes all the difference.

  3. Diana B

    MUFE HD microfinish setting powder (I think thats what its called)

  4. Nunuiviet

    A cream concealer good for red acne scar or fade freckles

    I adore YSL Touche Eclat, & definitely agree about foundation & concealer. Even somthing like MAC Studio Moisture Tint helps me hide slight imperfections like redness, etc.

      Have you used the Dior skinflash pens? Ive heard so much about the YSL ones but my Sephora doesn’t carry them. Im wondering if it’s worth my time (and lack of an employee discount) to go on a hunt for one.

      • Angelcat47

        Boots No 7(Target) and Milani(CVS) both make similar products that work similarly and are much less expensive((13.00 and 8.00,respectively).

    It used to be YSL Touche Eclat, as long as I wore foundation over it, at one time. Now any concealer that matches me looks good and for now I’m using the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer. Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit is really wonderful too though; I think I ran out of the powder in it before I ran out of the concealer in it but I can’t remember now.

    I don’t know how to create a soft focus look though. LOL

  7. nina

    the clean and clear pore minimizing lotion.

  8. Rayna

    Dr Brandt Pores no more, Dior Skin Nude loose powder and Dior skinflash in candlelight for under the eyes. Best no make up look Ive ever created.

  9. Ms Ray

    Right now: Josie Maran’s new two concealer palettes in both suede and chestnut, also loving my nars concealer palette.

    i use coverderm classic concealer!its so good so i dont i need foundation!

  11. Laurina

    MAC Prolong Wear, MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer, and Clarins Instant Smooth

  12. Lizzi

    Too Faced’s Primed and Poreless, but I only need to use it on my chin. I’ve also been using LUSH’s fresh face masks the night before and it tends to work out everything.

  13. Meg

    concealer/foundation
    and my face lotion which helps me with my acne

  14. The Nuetrogena Wave and My Queene Helene Mint Julep Masque

  15. Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer in Deep

  16. Leticia

    Clinique Moisture Surge is great to soften my skin and get it ready for makeup. Cover Girl Simply Ageless Eye Concealer works great to cover my sun spots. I also use MAC Studio Finish Concealer where I need more coverage. And Clinique Pore Minimizer is great to even out my nose’s skin!

  17. CeeBee

    My Thin Lizzy beeswax based concealer dabbed on and blended over foundation, then an application of Scott Barnes Diamond Dust loose powder which gives a lovely soft illuminating finish. I buff it in a wee bit, then finish with a tad more swept downwards.

    I have had cystic adult acne and melasma pigmentation patches for over 10 years so I know ALL about skin imperfections – I am on treatments for both now and when I get complements on my skin, it TOTALLY makes my day.

  18. monika-luiza

    besides good skincare, it’s macs studio moisture tint in light

  19. beautyaddict

    estee lauder’s idealist, ANR, daywear, and doublewear foundations

    fresh umbrian clay mask (but planning to try Keihl’s on your reviews)

  20. MUFE HD Finishing powder!

  21. Becca

    well like skincare wise?
    Grease Lightning by LUSH

  22. Marianne

    I dab on rose water to calm my skin, put on a very soft moisturizer or Benefit’s That Gal. A light foundation and a little concealer on the red bumps or spots.

  23. Niki

    A good skin care regime and Graftobian’s Hi-Def Glamour Corrector Palette topped off with NYX Concealer in Jar in Tan (if necessary).
