I haven’t been going out lately and this whole feeling has taken me back to high school- the insecurity of bad skin.
I’ve gone for facials, I use the right skin products, but it doesn’t matter what I try , my skin gets worse. Dubai weather, too much chicken, who knows but my skin is like my 18year old’s self.
I’m not going out because correcting the skin can take a lot of time and effort.
This basic skin correction is easy though – here are some pictures of me last night. With a horrendous before shot!
The best thing for acne skin is to try and calm the redness and inflammation down by cleansing and moisturizing. And the best primer for acne skin is Smashbox’s colour correcting primer in green.
Apply concealer before your foundation with a small brush to blend ontop of the acne. For the red acne I use Napolean’s concealer in green also. Green counteracts the red by the way same way yellow concealer corrects your dark undereye.
Contour – I use makeup forever contour kit.
Blend with your foundation, apply your eyes, powder and blush as normal.
The skin is the most important and can be done for work without eye makeup.
