4 years ago

I attended Ricki Lake's NYC book signing for her book, "Never Say Never." I had a blast with a few friends, including Stephen Dimmick of Stephen is a professional makeup artist whose beauty advice goes much further than skin deep. However, on this occasion, I had to take the opportunity to ask him what to do about those pesky blemishes. 

  • Does popping them make them go away faster? 
  • Is it easier or more difficult to hide a popped blemish or one that's left alone? 

Take a look at what Stephen has to say!
