Secret message for commenters: my most embarrassing memory of trying to get rid of my acne/spots was putting cabbage leaves on my face haha, thanks to my nana for that one! (yeah, it didn’t work!) if you’d like me to show pictures of that hilarious time in a future video, thumbs up and leave a comment including #CABBAGELADY ๐Ÿ˜‰ Let’s confuse everybody else who drops in and out of the comments, bahahaha! Love yous x

Five steps:

1 Prep face
2 Prime face (optional)
3 Base (foundation, bb cream or cc cream…thin veil so as not to cover healthy skin, skin between acne/spots etc)
4 Conceal
5 Set makeup (powder or setting spray depending on skin type)

This can be done with ANY combination of products that you wish to use based on your skin, your budget, your likes/dislikes etc…there’s no one ‘best product’ for this, of course I have my favorites but this changes season to season and year to year! So I wanted you guys to have a video to refer back to for the basic steps (for beginners) and also wanted to make you guys feel better about having spots, it’s so common and that’s why at the beginning of the video I said what I said. Imperfection is perfection, yo! It’s just a tough oul’ judgmental society we live in and it’s nice to not have to think about your skin issues and focus your energy on productive things while you get rid of it – that’s why I love makeup, and also you can be so creative with it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Guys; always spit on your fingers then wipe around a girls mouth to see the herpes she's hiding.

    Melanie I'm really really insecure about my acne face. it's dry and all. the make up couldn't stay long. I watched your videos and I have more confident about myself. but then in real life I still dislike my face. ๐Ÿ™ย love you.thank you for making such really good and lovely videos.

    How ever much I try my spots are so obvious they just don't cover up! I have quite a few spots on my cheeks and they just don't go away! And even when they cover up a bit I end up being orange ๐Ÿ˜• any good tips?

    I'm 12 and I'm starting to get acne on my forehead. I'm using a cleanser and face masks. But it's just getting worse. Shall I start using some harsh treatment. Or shall I wait till it gets worse? Just don't want it to be to late.
