Social media is filled with countless makeup tutorials focused on concealing acne, but one makeup artist is going viral for making acne the star of her latest makeup creation.
Rocio Cervantes recently posted a look with transparent purple star stickers surrounding her pimples, and people are loving the creative way she embraced her acne — not to mention the flawless rainbow gradient eye shadow.
Cervantes told INSIDER that she's recently become frustrated with her acne, and she used that frustration to fuel her creativity.
"I've struggled with acne for a really long time, but I also love makeup," Cervantes told INSIDER. "It's my passion, and sometimes my acne can really get in the way of my passion, so I thought why not morph these two together."
"Sometimes my acne can really get in the way of my passion so I thought why not morph these two together," she told INSIDER.
The resulting look quickly went viral, with over 36,000 likes at the time of this post and a retweet from popular beauty guru James Charles. People are calling the photos "beautiful" and "inspiring," and the reaction has taken Cervantes by surprise in the best way possible.
"I was taken back at the response, but it's been so positive and people have been nothing but nice and supportive," Cervantes said. "I've received so many messages from people telling me how it has helped them with their acne so it makes me happy!"
Cervantes hopes that those who come across her inspired look will feel empowered to embrace their acne during those times when it interferes with your self-esteem.
"My advice to those that struggle with acne is that you are beautiful," Cervantes told INSIDER.
