What's the best cover up or concealer to cover up brown spots on the face? I'm not dark but brown spots are. Ned color/makeup brand to use.

Try Black Radiance concealers or Iman or Black Opal. They are all found in drugstores :) they only come in shades of brown because they are targeted for black woman and Indian woman with darker complexions. But since you did say they are brown spots, a concealer from one of these lines will help a lot. They have a very wide color selection, coverage like no other, they are very buildable, and affordable! :D but if you have like olive skin or porcelain skin and the brown spots is the only part of your face that's significantly darker, be really really careful when you apply these products. It can stand out since the color differences are so big. Maybe try mixing it with your foundation or something to make the color more correspondable to your actual skin tone because the colors from all of those lines are pretty dark, even the lightest ones! But they'll work and you won't regret it.

Or try the Bobbi Brown creamy concealer if you want higher quality. It's expensive but I've heard good things about it everywhere.

Thank you. I am willing to try anything. I currently use Bare Minerals and Estee Lauder concealer. I am a lighter Hispanic but these brown spots are dark and foundation isn't enough. I have cover blend but too cakee. Thank you again and you never know. :-)

Your welcome, glad to help :D and yes, I think they'll do great for you as long as you balance out the color. Because your Hispanic, the colors might be the only problem, being too dark, but all these products perform top notch in everything else(: good luck!

I currently use Bare Minerals but it doesn't cover the brown spots at all. Thank you for responding.

Go to the makeup counter at the mall. The ladies who work there will be able to try a bunch of shades until they find the right one for you

Unfortunately they work on commission. I did that and I had to return products that looked awful on me as the day went on. I am hoping that I can rely on people out there who experience the same concern I have. Thank you though.

Try a tinted moisturizer. I would suggest the brand NARS. If that doesn't help i would try a good concealer. For that I suggest anything by MAC.

I have used Coverblend and it's too cakee. It is suppose to also cover tatoos. I want more of a natural look or close to that. Thank you though.

You should try the Glamofluage concealer though. It's like the best drugstore concealer :) the only downside is the color range is very very limited, but blendability and coverage and finish is all good. Glamofluage is seriously able to cover tattoos so it's pretty thick but it's still easy to blend. Not too sticky either. Finish is really good! You'll look flawless as long as you don't use too much (as I said, it is pretty thick) and if you put it on right (use a brush for best results). This stuff is like made for big dark eye bags so try it first, but only use a small amount! If it irritates you or it just turns out looking cakey, get something diff for that area. It's understandable since the Glamoflauge is heavy duty, therefore thick, and the skin beneath your eye is thin and sensitive.
