For many years, those who live and breathe all things hair and beauty used to think you need to spend hundreds to achieve that perfect runaway skin.

But now social media users have proved that's not necessary, as one drugstore powder promises to conceal the grease and give your skin a picture-ready look in just seconds.

Showing the stark contrast, she said: ''I really don't feel the need to elaborate on this but…
