We're here to debunk the idea that the no-makeup look is only for girls with perfect skin—it's really not the case. The key to acing a second-skin finish while camouflaging pimples and acne marks depends on the way you apply your base. Below, the tips you need to know by heart to score a flawless face.
Choose a lightweight base.
Let your real skin shine through with a few thin layers of a lightweight base. Choose one that will even out skin tone or color-correct redness. Don't worry about your pimples yet. We'll get to them in the next step.

To prevent your base from moving, lightly dust translucent powder on your face. We personally recommend this K-beauty find which provides excellent shine-controlling abilities.
