When a makeup product goes viral on TikTok, you know that beauty fans are probably on to something. The app is a gold mine for affordable alternatives to high-end buys and genius makeup and haircare hacks.

One beauty buy that’s been doing the rounds recently is makeup artist staple Indeed Labs Nanoblur, £19.99 here. The water-based product blurs shine, fine lines and visible pores and has been reviewed more than 1,000 times online – and is known for keeping complexions looking fresh for the camera.

In an interview with Huda Beauty, Euphoria’s head makeup artist Doniella Davy revealed that she regularly uses the bargain beauty buy to get the show’s stars camera-ready.

“It’s an anti-shine cream that I apply with a beauty blender over foundation, in lieu of powder,” she explained. “I apply this sparingly, and only in the T-zone area that I want to keep a bit more matte.

She continued, “I try to avoid using too much powder on set, as the build-up over the span of a 14-hour day on set can start to become too dry. I love more creamy and dewy foundation formulas, and I rely on Nanoblur to make these formulas work on camera without becoming too shiny.”

To see how well the formula works IRL, beauty writer Lucy put the Nanoblur and beauty sponge method to the test.

Lucy says:

I have certified oily skin, so a hack that keeps midday shine at bay is right up my street. Once I got my hands on some Nanoblur I used the Real Techniques Miracle Sponge, £5 here, to apply over my foundation per Doniella’s description.

It’s important to only use a tiny bit at a time to take the edge off any excess shine, as dabbing too much on could affect the look of your existing makeup. I applied a small amount to the back of my hand and then dabbed my sponge into it to ensure I was using sparingly.

Although the ultra matte finish isn’t my personal preference (I think it ages me a bit), there’s no denying the hack definitely works in blurring and mattifying the skin. I applied the stuff onto my entire T-zone, either side of my nose and chin, but going forwards I’d probably only apply it to my forehead to keep daily shine to a minimum.

I also used a pea size amount to cover my entire face, so a tube of Nanoblur will last a long time even for a daily user. Another stellar find from TikTok!
