Im getting married in 10 weeks and i would like some good new makeup. I will be doing it on the day myself....

I also keep getting spots in the same place, right by mouth/chin which will need covering.

I currently use max factor stuff but it doesnt last all day and doesnt offer great coverage of red areas

Any suggestions?

Try Dermacoll. I found it though youtube. Really cheap £7-11 a tube. Super full coverage but very glowy.

*through youtube recommendations from make up artists

Erase paste from benefit to cover up. Use a concealer brush with it.

Have you tried dabbing lavender oil on the spots at night to dry them up? That works for me.

I'm thinking of trying ester Lauders double wear when I next get paid, I have heard good things about it.

Have you tried Micellar water? I had terrible skin but after a couple of months using morning and night - and trying to cut down on the make up generally - my skin has really cleared up.

I'd recommend double wear too.
If the spot gets weepy or crusty use some of the 'new skin' liquid plaster over the top, the makeup should stick well to it. It's what my MUA advised my bridesmaid who had a big cold sore at my wedding. Worked brilliantly.

I'd go to a make up counter and get a short tutorial in how to cover it up, if you have time.

I like the No 7 perfect match concealer, as it blends really well, but there's a definite knack to putting it on without rubbing it off again IYSWIM. You might want to try some pressed powder to help "set" it too
