I might be the last person someone might go to for beauty advice, but thanks to my acne and scars, I am pretty dang good at making my skin look flawless. I can now freely share some acne skin care tips because of my experience. During the past year, I have been a Youtuber in my spare time. I have always loved to watch the beauty gurus show me their tips and tricks, and they inspired me to create my own channel. I have been stuck at around six hundred subscribers for a while, but I still love it. I might not have the best camera or editing skills, but I am having an awesome experience.
One thing I have learned is that primer is going to be your savior. There are so many different primers out there for different skin types. They have pore fillers, oil control primers, hydrating primers, and much more. There are tons to meet your exact needs. Because of my oily skin, I tend to get oil control primers. They not only help my skin look healthier, but they also help my makeup last all day.
Next, you have your concealers. Both high-end stores and drugstores have excellent primers. When I have the worst breakouts, I always go for my Wet and Wild Photophocus concealer, it conceals ANYTHING. Also, Hard Candy's Glamoflauge concealer is excellent for covering up scarring. The best high-end concealer I have tried is the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer; however, it is a bit pricey, so I tend to stick to my Wet and Wild Concealer.
Foundation will bring your whole look together. Just like primers, there are many foundations that will cater to everyone's needs. Because of my acne and scarring, I always go for a full coverage foundation. Luckily, there are full coverage foundations at the drugstore and at higher end places. Some of my favorite foundations at the drugstore include the following: Milani Foundation and Concealer Foundation, Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in Matte and Poreless (they also have one for dry skin), Loreal Infallible Foundation, and Wet and Wild Photophocus Foundation. These foundations are great for scarred skin and acne filled skin. I have tried every single one. There are also some great high-end foundations that I have tried in the last couple of years. Some of my favorites include the following: Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation (current favorite), Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation, and Clinique Foundation and Concealer. Also, my Mom's ride or die foundation is the Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation, but I have not tried that one.
There is only one powder I have used, and it is the Mac Studio Fix Foundation. That product is the bomb. I have been extremely grateful that my parents buy me my foundation and powder. If it was not for them, I would never have been able to try as many as I did. So, I hope that everyone finds something that will work for them and may you find these acne skin care tips useful.
