To cover up a hickey, apply makeup primer, use a yellow concealer, apply foundation, and then finish with cosmetic powder. As an alternative, wear a turtleneck sweater.
- Apply primer and concealer
Blend a makeup primer onto the hickey to help the makeup stay in place. Apply a yellow concealer over the primer to counter the purple color of the hickey.
- Cover with foundation and powder
Apply the foundation you normally use on your face to the hickey. Dust cosmetic powder over the makeup to eliminate shine.
- Wear a turtleneck
If you don’t have access to makeup, wear a turtleneck sweater or pull long hair over your shoulders to hide the hickey.
