L’acne affects many adolescents, and some adults are unfortunately not spared. The causes of these recalcitrant pimples? Unsuitable cosmetics, lack of sleep, stress or even hormonal disorders. If reviewing your lifestyle or going through drug treatment can be very effective in preventing the appearance of pimples, once they are well established on the face, the best solution to camouflage them is makeup. But do you still need to know how to apply it properly so as not to draw more attention to imperfections? On TikTok, an unstoppable make-up technique to camouflage your acne is creating a buzz among beauty addicts. Her name ? The sticky method.

Sticky method: here’s how to adopt it step by step
Popularized by content creator and professional makeup artist Mikayla Nogueira, this fairly simple technique is broken down into 5 steps. Start by applying a moisturizing serum to protect and nourish your skin. Then use a makeup base that will allow it to adhere perfectly to the skin. Then apply a little mattifying corrector on all of your imperfections so as to camouflage them roughly, then let the product dry for between 2 and 5 minutes. Finally apply a face powder covering enough with a sponge and you’re done! Be careful not to abuse this method which, in the long term, can prevent your skin from breathing and cause the appearance of new acne pimples.
