We love watching a YouTube beauty transformation, but as transfixed as we are with celebrity makeup tutorials and dramatic contouring–most of the time, we click out of the video thinking “Well, never going to try that.”

But when we saw Australian makeup artist, Heidi Hamound, transform her blemished complexion into totally flawless skin using only four products, we knew that this tutorial is one we could actually use.
In the video, Hamound is seen using moisturizer, primer, concealer and foundation. She starts by applying moisturizer (Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream) to cleansed skin and then using a matte primer (Make Up For Ever Skin Equalizer #1 Mattifying Primer), which does double duty to mattify oily and blemish-prone skin and help makeup go on smoother and stay on longer. Hamound adds that the primer also creates a shield over the acne and helps concealer and foundation cover imperfections better.
Once the skin was prepped, Hamound went in with green concealer, which she applied all over her blemishes, saying that the key to covering imperfections was in using the right color of concealer. “A lot of people come to the assumption you need tons of foundation to cover acne, but in truth it’s all about colour correcting it,” the vlogger says in her video caption. See the full transformation, step by step, in the video below.
