Hey guys! This was so hard for me to edit and upload, because my skin is my biggest insecurity. However, I don't think having acne should be something to feel down about, you should feel EMPOWERED by the fact that you CAN cover it up and feign a flawless face. Here, I show you my special '3-step' technique! It is super easy to remember and this method ensures that your acne is sufficiently disguised ;)

3 steps of 3...

1) Cleanse, tone and moisturize (this prepares the face & provides a great canvas)
2) Conceal, foundation (or BB cream as I'm using in this tutorial), setting powder
3) Blush, contour, highlight

Easy peasy!

I even go in with a base concealer (here I'm using Dermablend is the most pigmented concealing product on the market! Available in 6 shades & is widely available. Alternatively, I'll use 'Boing' by Benefit in this step) then foundation/bb cream then another layer of concealer, this time I'm using Revlon!

When contouring, I use the '3' trick that so many makeup artists swear by, where you brush the contour colour in a '3' shape around your temples/forehead, under the cheekbone then under/along the jawline.
