My Acne Journey: How I cover my scarring and redness

After my first post about the troubles I’ve had with acne, and the hyper pigmentation it has caused, it was suggested that I do a post about how I cover my skin, makeup-wise. I had planned to do it anyway, as being able to cover my skin makes me so much more comfortable about my skin, but really, I like applying makeup and taking time to do it.

Like the previous tag I did, I haven’t been tagged but I thought it was a pretty good one to do and I’ve had a really busy weekend at work with some late nights and long commutes, so I just wanted to do a pretty simple post so that I didn’t leave it too long before the next one.

Anyway, on with what this is supposed to be all about…!
