Sun spots, wrinkles and uneven skin tone are annoying but can often be minimized with skin creams and serums. Broken capillaries are more difficult to treat. They require laser treatments or cosmetic surgery. A short-term, less expensive solution is to use heavy-duty concealer or foundation to hide the discoloration caused by broken capillaries. The best concealer will help you achieve younger-looking, evenly-toned skin, laying the groundwork for flawless, radiant makeup.

Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick

In "Prevention" magazine, renowned makeup artist Bobbi Brown states that foundation is usually best for covering the severe discoloration caused by broken capillaries. She says that concealers accentuate the unflattering look of broken capillaries instead of hiding them. She recommends using a foundation stick, such as the Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick, instead of liquid or powder foundations. A foundation stick provides thick but smooth coverage to conceal discolored undertones, spots and lines.

Iman Second to None Stick Foundation

Broken capillaries are less noticeable on women of color, but they may still be bothersome to some women. In "Prevention" magazine, Bobbi Brown also recommends Iman Second to None Stick Foundation for covering signs of broken capillaries. It's available in a range of colors from the lightest shades of tan to dark chocolate tones. If you're on the hunt for a foundation that truly matches your skin tone, this stick foundation may be just what you're searching for.

Cover Fx Total Coverage Cream Foundation SPF 30

If you're not into foundation in stick form, you can try Cover Fx Total Coverage Cream Foundation SPF 30. "Shape" magazine recommends it, noting that you can layer it to customize your level of coverage. This foundation goes beyond hiding broken capillaries to compliment the undertones in your skin. It comes in a handy compact with a sponge applicator for quick and easy powder room touch-ups.

Dermablend Quick-Fix Concealer

A heavy-duty concealer in skin tone-matching colors is as effective as a stick foundation or full-coverage cream foundation. Dermablend Quick-Fix Concealer meets "New You" magazine's expectations of a concealer that satisfactorily covers broken capillaries. With its intense coverage of even the most severe pigmentation, and its waterproof coverage, this concealer has serious staying power.
