Jordyn Foster's incredible budget makeup tutorial for people with acne.

There’s no denying that the state of your skin can have a significant impact on your self-esteem.

Whether you’re dealing with pigmentation, rosacea or acne, even applying everyday makeup (if that’s your jam) can be a struggle – not to mention finding products that conceal but don’t smother your skin.

In a highly requested video released earlier this year, Sydney-based YouTuber Jordyn Foster, AKA MakeupMeJordan, has shared her acne coverage tutorial that shows step by step how to minimise the appearance of your acne.

Each step is carefully explained, it's very full coverage and even better, it uses only pharmacy (read: affordable) beauty products. Oh, and it's been viewed over half a million times.

Looks like Saturday night's makeup is sorted.

1. The base.

Foster starts by cleansing the skin with Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water, $13.99, before applying the L'Oreal Infallible Matte Priming Base, $20.95, on client Jodie's T-Zone using a brush.

 2. Colour correcting.

A common issue when you're looking to cover up acne, pimples or marks is the redness. This is where colour correcting comes in with brightly coloured concealers. She applies the LA Girl Pro Concealer, $9.30, in orange under the eyes to counteract the dark circles, before dotting green over her face to balance any redness.

She recommends applying with a brush then patting in with fingers to blend.

3. The coverage.

Foster then applies L'Oreal Infallible 24HR Matte Foundation, $29.95, in Golden Beige with a flat top kabuki brush before gently bouncing the foundation into the skin with a Beauty Blender, $30, to blend.

She then applies Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in light, $14.95, under the eyes, on the bridge of the nose, on the cupids bow, the centre of her forehead and chin before blending out with a damp sponge.

From there you've got a solid base to add blush, a touch of bronzer if you so desire and go on your way.

4. Take it further.

However if you want to go the whole hog, Foster then goes on to contour using a darker shade of the concealer around the sides of her face and under her nose and lips. It's then time to bake with the Face Of Australia Loose Translucent Powder, $11.95.

While she waits for the powder to bake (or set for long-lasting staying power) Foster applies the NYC Smooth Skin Bronzer, $9, to the cheekbones, around the temple and jaw line and a quick sweep under the jaw line to blend. (Post continues after gallery.)

After wiping away the loose powder, she goes in with a light dusting of Thebalm Mary Lou Maniser, $29.95, to highlight before finishing off with Milani Baked Blush, $16.50, in Luminoso.

Of course, it's not everyday you need such full coverage makeup and indeed maybe you never do. But on those days where you do want to glam it up, Foster's tutorial is a handy place to start.
