Attempting to hide a Swollen Lip

Well I’ve had fun with my skin lately! 

You know those really annoying under the skin whiteheads that you can’t do anything about and they hurt like hell? I have one and it’s made my upper chin and lip swell in quite a strange way.

Therefore I had to use all my concealing and makeup artist wizardry to try and camouflage it a bit. I mean, I couldn’t hide it entirely, but I could make it less noticeable.

Firstly, I applied my foundation ad normal, going for a fuller coverage one; Chanel Perfection Lumiere. Over the actual spot I dotted a touch of the Chanel Correcteur over the top, leaving it to set for about a minute. I then blended out the edges with a damp blending sponge. I set this with the Bare Minerals Original Concealer being careful to press rather than buff the powder onto the concealer. I didn’t want to remove any of the cream concealer. I then set everything with a setting powder. 

As my bottom lip was a bit swollen on the left side of my face I didn’t want to wear too bold a lip colour. Nude would be best. So I went with Nars Audacious lipstick in the shade Anna. I didn’t want to draw too much attention to my lower face. 

And that is how I hid what probably looked like I had been punched in the face. Have you got any concealing tips that would come in handy? 

Have a good day guys!
