21st Mar '13

Okay, so I have never in my life ever wore makeup.. besides eyeliner and eye shadow, that's it. But, I am soooo sick of my face, haha. I have always had real bad acne. I see girls all the time who have pimples all over there face, then they put their makeup on and they are so pretty and you can't see any of their pimples!! I want that. I need help finding makeup!? What should I get? I have no clue about makeup and what I exactly would need, I feel so stupid. But I know there's a bunch, like foundation, and tons of others? I have very pale skin also if that helps!? I just don't know what to get? Help???!

Just so you know, makeup isn't going to help. What you should invest your time into looking up is really good face wash and then you won't be so self conscience and want to wear it.




Anyways, i wear MAC and i love it. I also own "clean" by i think NYC and i like that as well. I would go someplace like Ulta if you have one and talk to them about what you can wear that will be healthy for your skin instead of what can cover it.

What is your budget? If you're on the low side, go to Walgreens and ask the makeup girl for help. If you've got more $ then go to Macy's. I recommend Lanc

I have honestly, since I was 15 years old have tried atleast 100 different products to help my face. 5 of them being prescribed to me, nothing has worked. I have learned to deal with it, but I'm so tired of it.

I don't really have a budget. I'm willing to spend whatever it takes to feel good about myself, ha

You really should focus on getting rid of the acne instead of just covering it up. makeup clogs your pores and makes acne worse.



But if you go to sephora or the make up counter at a department store they can help you.

Coverblend works well but can be tricky to learn to apply. Also try Est

I've been trying to get rid of it for over 5 years, nothing helps. I usually end up getting really dry skin from the products, my face will just break out more, my face will get really red and hurts or they just simply won't work.

Do you have dry skin, oily or combo skin? What formula liquid, cream or powder do you want to work with?

Makeup does too help. :lol: That's what it's for. To cover up.

I use an organic green tea wash. The trick when cleaning your face is to know your skin. If it starts getting dry you are cleaning to often or with to harsh a cleaner
