First thing's first: In order to prevent a sunburn, you should always cover yourself in SPF consistently and thoroughly any time you think the sun's rays will so much as touch your skin — even if it's only a few minutes.

That happened to makeup artist, vlogger and Instagram user @doniellecampopiano over the weekend, but she didn't let that stop her from looking fabulous. She created a video detailing how to contour and cover up a fresh, painful sunburn, and the results are super impressive.

She starts by applying fresh, natural aloe all over her red skin to help soothe it, then applies a mint green concealer to color correct the burn. Then, she followed up with a neutral concealer placed in strategic places and went so far as to apply bronzer and highlighter to further contour.
