It's all in the technique.

It’s a vicious yet common cycle: Blemishes have yet to clear and, already, more resurface. But we’ve had enough. We come armed with the right concoctions to wage a war against the frustration of flawless skin. 

Photoshop-inspired products have brought about a new beauty philosophy—blur instead of conceal—all coming with a fresh, grease-free finish. Choose your tool wisely! Below, a three-step stealth tactic that's foolproof. Time to get even.

Plus points for this emulsion that’s waterbased: It doesn’t clog pores and diminishes their appearance in four weeks.

Here's your best defense against environmental aggressors; it has antioxidants and vitamin C. It’s a unique powder-to-liquid (not vice versa!) formulation, used under and over makeup, that stays on and on.

While your skin isn’t at its tip-top shape just yet, fake your A-game with an ultra-light blurring cover that lasts as long as you can on whatever battlefield, resisting sweat, water, and humidity.
