Acne anti-coverage makeup

Here is the next makeup thing, that I’m gonna rock as a trend: Confidence.

I already talked a little about this on my recent post, but today, while I was having a fantastic day, I got an inspiration to come here and share my makeup photos and thoughts. Because today – I didn’t even want to cover my acne.

There are tons of different makeup tips and even some things, that we consider as rules. Every once in a while I like to kick those rules out of my makeup bag and just do as I please. Like yesterday and today, when I wore my acne anti-coverage base.

Makeup and skin problems can be a tricky combo. It’s certainly something, that has made me feel sad at times. Why doesn’t my favorite foundation look beautiful on my skin? Why does the highlighter want to make my skin look worse than it is? Not to talk about the fact, that acne can be painful and makeup can irritate it – or the process of removing it. And to be honest – I just haven’t felt like applying makeup on my acne. And realizing I don’t have to is pretty damn powering.

So here is my acne anti-coverage makeup from today. I wore this, when I went to city to my monthly sugaring appointment and a lunch date with my friend. I feel like the time stopped for a while, when we sat in a restaurant and drank our awful teas and laughed at stupid things.  I took a bus home and smiled the entire trip back. Why should I worry? I may have a few red pimples on my cheeks, but I have just as many good friends.

Would you rock the acne anti-coverage makeup? And what looks better in your opinion: a flawless makeup or self-confidence?
I choose the second one every day and I’m willing to pair it with whatever makeup I’m wearing.

About the makeup:
I wore my go-to foundation with cream contour and a nude blush (which is the only product I can’t remember right now). I used Isadora’s eyeshadows, which I wrote about here and on my lips I wore my new mac lipstick, with a gloss. Those lashes are my absolute favorite. If you’re someone just starting with fake lashes – you should definitely try Eylure’s lashes – the lash band is really thin, which makes them easier to apply.

This post is a collaboration between me and another blogger – gorgeous Eleni from Rouge ‘N Apples.

I first got to know this beautiful fellow blogger on Instagram. I loved her photos and the positive attitude, that somehow comes through the posts. I then found her blog, which is as lovely. Eleni writes a beauty blog, which has great in-depth reviews of beautiful products. I’m always drooling over the beautiful luxury products she has! She’s a Greek living in London and I love to read about her travels as well. We share the love for sea as well as makeup.

It would be cool, if you could show some love for Eleni on her blog and on her Instagram.

We came up with the idea of choosing a summer makeup look for each other and then creating it. This is my look, designed by Eleni. It was cool to see what she would pick for me and I love this bronzy look, which is very Eleni by the way.  The pink lips and cheeks are a nice contrast to this otherwise very dark smokey eye. I wasn’t sure if I went overboard with the smokey eye, but then again, that’s just typical me.

I had a bit of trouble to make the photos look summery, because this Monday turned out to be rainy and grey. But hey, throw a sun hat on and it’s like I’m at the beach, no?

If you want to see what I chose for Eleni’s makeup, go read her post about the summer look designed by yours truly. I can reveal, that I did challenge her a bit with colors!
