Tutorial: How To Cover Acne With Makeup

You guys asked for it, so I’ve filmed it! A lot of you asked me what my daily makeup routine is, and what products do I use now I’ve awfully started to get the dreaded ACNE coming back *covers face feeling sad*

I was taking the pill Yasmin for the past 8-9 years, which kept my skin super clear. And before that, it was Dianette, which I call ‘the beauty pill’ as it gave me the best skin…

However, I’ve now come off Yasmin and gone onto Microgynon and EURGH! Hormonal acne is back and it’s making me pretty miserable. I thought I’d film a video showing my everyday makeup look, including my base, my foundation, my concealer and setting powder to hide the acne and spot clusters as much as possible.

It ain’t easy, that’s for sure! But I feel I cover it as best I can…

The products I use pretty much everyday are all listed below, and they do the job perfectly. I’m hoping that in a few months time my skin may settle down, and I can show you some more tutorials which focus on some lovely eye makeup looks…

If any of you have used some miracle acne products, or had any fab treatments for scarring etc, please do leave me a comment. And of course, it would be AMAZING if you could subscribe to my YouTube channel whilst you are over there… it would be so so SO appreciated.
