Best concealer for blemishes?

I need a concealer to cover up the occasional blemish. Any suggestions would be great!

NYX Wonder Pencil. With such a small point on the pencil you can put concealer only on the zit and not on the healthy skin. Looks so much more natural and subtle.

 

(And do try Korean pimple patches for the occasional blemish. Flattens and pretty much gets rid of the blemish overnight, making it super easy to conceal the next day.)

I thought the above link was informative.  Mally made me laugh when she suggested if all else fails, be creative with a dark eyeliner and make your blemish into a beauty spot.

IT cosmetics has a new one called bye bye breakout. It is a concealer with stuff to dry up and get rid of the blemish.

Hi @Porcelain. I've never heard of these Korean pimple patches. I looked it up online and they look good. Which brand do you use and where do you buy them?

Many thanks.

@NycVixen They are the best thing ever. I like CosRx "Acne Pimple Master Patch" and Nexcare by 3M, Acne Cover. Nonmedicated little hydrocolloid patches. They just absorb the zit into the patch overnight. I get them from Amazon, and I understand some Target stores carry the Nexcare kind. QVC should sell them, but they don't at this point.

Secret Concealer by Laura Mercier.   You may want to consider a stick foundation too.  Bobbi Brown has one.
