The Power of a GREAT Foundation- How acne scars can easily be hidden

Over on Reddit I came across a photo of a beautiful young lady who posted a before / after picture with details of her makeup routine. I absolutely love these kinds of photos, because it's amazing to see what a little makeup and a smile can do. Within five minutes she was able to make her acne scars and red blotches disappear. Take notice of what a difference an even skin tone makes in ones appearance...and it's so easy to do! Below I have included the products she used (taken directly from her post) if you're interested in trying this gorgeous natural look!


Products used:
  • Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup in 150 Buff. I use this all over to even out my skin tone, but I use as little as possible.
  • Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer in Shade 3 does all the heacy lifting, so to speak. It covers whatever still peeks through after my foundation. I also used it under my eyes today.
  • Tarte Exposed Blush along the hollows of my cheeks for a little bit of a contour, and MAC Melba more on the cheek bones.
  • Jordana FabuBrow Pencil in Medium Brown. I dyed my hair yesterday, and dyed my brows too. They turned out a bit more orangey than my hair, so I'm going to have to play around with different products to get a better match.
  • NARS Sudge Proof Eyeshadow Base.
  • Guerlain Les Cuirs eyeshadow quad. I was going to skip eyeshadow completely, but this palette was just begging to be used.
  • MAC Blacktrack Fluiline, to tightline the upper lash line.
  • Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara.
  • Rimmel Lip Lipner in "natural" to very lightly fill in my lips, topped off with Jack Black Lip 
    Balm.
