Finding the right shade of foundation, powder or concealer fit for my part yellow, part pink skin undertone has always been a chore for me. Even then, I have always managed to find shades that are of the closest match. However,there are days when my “perfect” concealer seems orange on me and the foundation too pink/gray!

And to add to it all? Acne. It’s so.damn.irritating. But amidst all this, I have found a routine that makes my face look less yellow, less pink, my acne less red and my damn oily skin more matte! So here’s a quick look at how I conceal my acne and the products used!

Method :

After cleansing my face, I apply a light, oil-free moisturizer. Following which, I apply a clear gel based primer to smooth out my bumpy skin. I then apply my foundation or like in today’s tutorial, a BB stick with good coverage to eliminate the need of a concealer as much as possible. I then spot apply the concealer after, on pimples that are visible.

Please ignore my super dry skin.

So that’s my super easy routine for covering acne. Hope it helps! šŸ™‚
