A TikTok acne concealing make-up hack has gone viral and it’s GOOD

Literal witchcraft


by Aimee Jakes |

There may be tons of social media posts telling you that you should spend your lockdown writing a novel, learning an instrument or downloading a TikTok account, but the real game-changing skill is learning how to conceal like a pro.

Of course, you don't have to conceal your spots or anything for that matter. You're great just as how you are, but if you do want some fool-proof tips for a flawless finish, you're in the right place.

So lo and behold, when TikTok-er @MikayLanogueira shared her routine for covering up acne we had to re-watch about four times.

Make-up artist Mikayla says that she's been able to "trick people" into thinking she "has no acne at all".

We are all ears, hun.

She only uses THREE products: a serum, a primer and a concealer, but the it's all in the details.


First, she uses Exuviance's Radiance Serum and insists, "this stuff is sticky as hell and that's what you need for your foundation to stick".

Next up is the beauty blogger's fave, Milk Makeup's Hydro Grip Primer, "this stuff is the bomb".

After applying her skincare, she then covers her spots with the NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer.

"Apply the serum, apply the primer . Take your concealer brush with the concealer and cover up all your acne."


"Now this is the most important part, once you have the concealer on don't touch it, don't blend it, leave it alone for two minutes and then apply your foundation."

Blemishes? We don't know her.
