Most people have experienced an acne flare-up at some point in their life.
While some people defiantly embrace theirs (kudos to you), others prefer to conceal theirs with a few clever makeup hacks.
If you’re part of the latter contingent, this blogger’s acne beauty tutorial will be right up your street.
Melbourne-based beauty blogger, Chloe Szep, 19, has long been open about her problematic skin on social media and the video featuring her seemingly-clear skin has already racked up over 257,000 views.
She explains: “I feel like when you have acne, the more you cover your pimples the more they want to show,’ before advising people to avoid anything too cakey – something we’re all guilty of when blemishes pop up.
In the honest video, she starts by cleansing her skin and applying a serum, before going in with cult favourite, NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, using a flat brush.
She added: “It can be really hard to find a good bronzer or blush without shimmer or sparkle, which you want to avoid if you have problem skin – anything shimmery will bring the bumps out more”, before recommending Sparkly Belinni blush by Too Faced.
She then completes the look with a highlighter (obvs), using Soft and Gentle by MAC – but advises that you don’t apply it if you have pimples in that area as it’s only going to make them stand out more.
