Hi, my name's Janelle Corey. I'm a professional makeup artist, and I'm going to tell you how to hide acne scars with makeup today, on peach skin. The materials you'll need to do this today, are a packing brush for your concealer, a condensed foundation brush, and a big fluffy powder brush. The first step in this process is to use primer, and the reason you do that is because high quality primer will have some collagen in it. And that will fill in any fine lines or pores, or acne scars in this case, to give you a smooth surface for your makeup application. And, you just start out by squeezing a little bit on to your hand, and then taking your packing brush, dabbing it. So, I'm just padding that primer into the area that I want to conceal, packing that collagen in there, and priming my face for the concealer. So, the next step of this process is to take your concealer; and you can use just the same packing brush you used with your primer. Put a little bit of the concealer on your hand. And the concealer, you typically want to be either a half shade lighter or a shade lighter than your regular skin tone, or your foundation. So, I'm just going to dab my brush on to the concealer, and a little bit goes a long way. Again, packing the product into my skin, rather that rubbing it. This will just allow for more product in the concentrated spot. The third step would be to add your foundation. You just need a tiny little bit, because you've already got coverage from your concealer. And I'm going to use my foundation brush. Again, just dabbing a little bit on to my hand and on to the brush, and then right over that same area. And once you get that, your foundation on, little circles like so, help to blend in the product. The last step of the process is to set everything with the powder. And that will just help to insure the product staying on your face a lot longer. And the primer will do that as well. Now, if you'd want a lot more coverage, you can use a powder foundation. Or, if you'd like just to set the makeup and not have very much more coverage, you can use an invisible setting powder, which is what I'm going to use. And you just dab a little bit of the powder on to your brush. And don't be afraid if it's white. It will go on your skin white, but it blends pretty beautifully. You just pat over the same area with your powder, making sure that you blend everything really well. And that should set everything, so hopefully last all day long. Remember, the primer has collagen in it. So, it's going to help fill in all those fine lines and pores, or in this case, deeper acne scars. And the concealer is what's going to cover it up. So, those two products are sort of your must have products. And if you can, add the powder over the top just to insure longevity of the product. My name's Janelle Corey, and thanks for watching.
