Whate makeup to use when you ahve acne

Recommended Posts

Heyyy dudettessss....:P I juts want to share my acne story with everyone, maybe so that some of you feel a bit better.:P Well, I had normal skin all the way up to year 10. I ahve never felt that great about myself, but in year 9 i finally became more confident and gained a lot more self esteem. I could actually look in the mirror and like what i saw. I ahd back spots since year 7, and when i mean back and chest spots i mean realy bad back and chest spots. Anyway, I started wearing Mabeline Matte mouse to cover up some of my outbreaks, the were not that bad, but still. I do admit i did pick my skin a lot. I never knew it was acme so didnt take care of it. Then at one sleepover i did not take my makeup of, beacuse if felt embarassed; my forehead, cheeks, chin, nose , sides of face was covered with red spots, pimples, whiteheads... My skin was greasy and shiny. N exaggeration. Finally i was put on a treatment of 2 gels. they did clear up the spots, but they made my skin realy irriatates and red, my nose was shiny and oily with red spots, even radom people were like , oh why are you so red??? it put my confidence to the point where i could notlook peopel in the eye, hiding behind my hair, not being able to look at myselfin the mirror in a lightened room, chosing to not socialise, totally fucking up my exams( i was an a* student).

I just want to say to you all, that it is hard, but it doesnt have to be. Even though my skin is actually fine now, i still have a phobia of looking at muself in the mirror in broad daylight, even with makep on. I knowmy skin is not bad anymore, but i just cant face myself to do it. But im working on it. the word of advice here is to take the ytreatment step by step; dont expect too much,, because you will be dissapointed. Just wake up, and before you look in the mirror think " wow, i remebember what my skin looked like before treatment " . When you look , you will be happy and truly see the improvements.

With makeup, DONT WEAR LIQUID FOUNDATION NO MATTER HOW BAD YOUR SKIN LOOKS. LOREAL MINERAL FOUNDATION IS REALY AMAZING, IT DOES NOT MAKE YOU BREAK OUT, COVERS REDNESS REALY WELL, DOES NOT GET CAKEY... BUT... YOU HAVE TO WEAR IT PRIMED WITH MOISTURISES BECAUSE THEN IT DOES. TOTALLY NATURAL EFFECT.

IF YOU WANT, THERES ALSO A MINERAL BLUSHER. BUT SERIOUSLY, LIQUID FOUNDATION IS A NO. TRUST ME, TRIED IT OUT ON MY OWN SKIN !!!!
