With her help, you can hide spots quickly, for days when you want a fuss free, natural glow.

Dab concealer onto red spots – Shani says she has skin woes like the rest of us
Shani uses only one product – BareMinerals bareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer in the shade ‘light’. It costs just $21.
She favours this product because it has a smooth, liquid consistency which doesn’t look ”cakey” on the skin.
Starting with clean skin, Shani uses a brush to place drops of concealer over red spots. This helps to map out coverage of spots.
She recommends that you avoid applying concealer directly from the bottle, as this might spread bacteria from your blemishes onto other parts of your face.
2: Blend out the concealer with a brush

She softly buffs the product over the red spots, to blend it in with the rest of the skin.
3: Pat the concealer with clean fingers
To finish, Shani uses body heat from her fingers to melt concealer into the skin
For the final step, Shani simply blends the concealer out with her fingers.
By using the fingers, she uses her body heat to melt the concealer into the skin, for a flawless finish.
Shani says it’s important to wash your hands thoroughly,so that you don’t spread bacteria over your face.
