A make-up artist has released a revolutionary three-step hack that completely covers her acne and blemishes.

Mikayla Nogueria, 21, posted the video to TikTok where it received an impressive 13 million views with people commenting how incredible the hack was.

Mikayla can be seen applying just three different make-up products to her face before her transformation is complete.

The end result shows Mikayla’s acne and redness completely covered, creating a doll-like appearance.

Since posting the video, Mikayla has been amazed with the outcome and is planning on sharing more tips and tricks on her account.

Mikayla, a make-up artist, from Boston, Massachusetts, said: “I don’t have a big following but I thought that I would post this hack on TikTok because I’ve been doing it every day for the past two years and wanted to share it with people because it took me so long to find the perfect products.

“I started getting acne when I was 10-years-old which is why I started doing make-up. I’ve tried everything and have seen different dermatologists but nothing seems to get rid of my acne so I have to cover it up.

“One day my acne was really bad and I was just so tired of it. You can put make-up over it but that doesn’t cover the texture and redness so I started experimenting and that’s how I found this hack.

Mikayla first applies the Exuviance Radiance Serum, followed by the Hydro Grip Primer from Milk Makeup which locks the serum in place.

The final step in Mikayla’s acne hack is to apply the Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer on any blemishes and acne which she allows to dry for two minutes before applying her foundation.

She added:”The serum is thick and sticky so it gives the perfect base and layer to hold your make-up in place. The primer locks the serum in and has a really cooling effect so it’s really soothing and refreshing.

“It’s also is green in colour which helps to colour correct any redness.

“The concealer is a pot formula which means it’s more thick and long-lasting and will really dry down in those two minutes you leave it on meaning your foundation will just glide over the top, completely masking any texture and acne.

“When I’m working the beauty store I’m based at people will come up to me multiple times a day and say that I look like a porcelain doll because of how smooth my skin is – it feels like I’m living a lie because they don’t really know what I look like.”
