Wanna see how horrible my skin is? (Proceed with caution)

To be honest, I DON'T KNOW WHAT CAUSED IT! I'm suspecting the new moisturizer I've been using, but I'm not 100%, not even like 80%. It's just like BAM, 50+ pimple looking like thing all over my face and MY FUCKING EYES!!! I went to sleep one day completely normal, the next day...BAM swollen bee stung face!! I'm so depressed right now. My face hurts and itches...and it looks ugly. I REALLY need some Prozac pronto.

Some people were being extra nice yesterday and said that my skin doesn't look that bad...well trust me, it is. I've never been so thankful for makeup in my entire life.

This is me all bare-faced...I know, SCARY!! My eyes are very swollen b/c I have like 4 zits on each eye...




This is me after makeup! Hallellujah! Not 100% perfect, but A LOT bettern than before. At least I have eyes now...





What I used:


EDM Light O-Glow
UD ransom e/s (upper lid)
La Femme Sparckle dust in Black Orchid (outer V and lower lashline)
Stila Chinois as highlight
Stila espresso on brow
Stila smudgepot in Black
Falsies
Hard Candy Candy coating l/g in Caramel (forgot to include in pic)

Close ups:



Cam Whore:





Can I choke on my own spit?

...Not really


...I HATE THIS!

This is the Good o'time when my skin was close to perfect...I had absolutely NO face makeup whatsoever in these pics...




I'm officially sad....
Bye!

crikey! bad moisturizer! but you should be happy, voting actually did something this time around

Krystal said...

oh dear you must be allergic to something in the moisturizer...take a look @ those ingredients!! your fotd's look great though. :o)where did you get that blue top at? its mad cute!

Noora said...

You always look gorgeous to me and you are gorgeous..I love you <3 .. Pimples will come and go but your inner beauty will always shine..Plus you are GORGEOUS..I don't see pimples I only see a cute, sweet a beautiful face....

cheryl said...

u'll get better soon. throw that darn moisturiser away! it probably really caused an allergic reaction :-(

Your top is so pretty! I love military-type tops like that w/the buttons! I try to get jackets of that style. Cute doggies! Your skin can be a lot worse *knock on wood*. I'm sorry dear =T. Have you thought about seeing a derm? Sometimes your skin just goes through phases... mine definitely does.

I like the Lorac multi-platinum palette! I can see you making plenty of uses out of it! I know Fuz and Audrey LOVE it! I'm in love with the blush in the palette!

angie519 said...

I swear I saw 2 comments from you but I found the other one! =)

Yeah, numb toes are weird and scary! Mine feels like it's almost back to normal.. I think haha.

Are your toes okay? Shox are tight in the front!

probably had a allergic reaction to some of the products you're using. Try puting a light layer of hydrocortisone on it, i find that it helps me with red pimples like so.. =)

Chrysee. said...

you know it could also be water retention. or something you ate. i know i tried this new thing at jack in the box the next morning my eyes were swollen. i also tried this new face wash and the next day my face hurt so bad from pimples. what i did was take a hot shower and let the steam hit my face the next day the pimples hurt a lot less. i hope you find out what happen. take care

Elizabeth said...

Cheer up girl! Looks like its clearing up it doesn't look that bad!

You look hot in blue! I rkn Asians look hot in electric blue.

Could be something like a cystic outbreak. I had it before. The dermatologist said it's caused by using too many different products on the face, and one day you just need that one product to tip the balance. The skin normally has self-healing properties which we keep stripping when we use cleansers, makeup etc. I had to go cold turkey no makeup for 6 mths and was only allowed to wash my face with water, and was put on steroids. Yours still looks alright, but I suggest you leave off products and makeup for while.

nuts4makeup said...

what was the new moisturizer?

sorry about your skin hun, i totally feel you on that one

fuzkittie said...

Hopefully you'll find something that helps soon! You're still a beautiful girl no matter what! I love how you enhance your eyes, it's amazing~

Hi Tao! You should try a banana and baking soda mask, make a paste with them and put it on your face for an hour then wash off with warm water, I put 2 aspirins too to the mix but you can skip this step if you want to, if you use it you'll see the difference the next morning, hope it helps!

girl, what some of the comments are saying are so right, it really takes time for the skin to heal..so don't worry! You have the personality as cheerful as a sunshine, no one would care how your skin looks like! Love ya

miemiemie said...

wth,throw that moisturizer! try to avoid putting anything that can irritate your skin for the meantime.. if you have antihistamines/anti-allergy meds, take them..esp when you feel your face is itchy..i hope your skin gets better soon..
i remember i had a bad allergy to clinique's yellow moisturizer, the famous one..and i broke out more than you did, dunno if they were pimples..also itchy and irritating..i felt like dying then! and i didn't even know how to put makeup then! so yes, thank God for makeup!

Cindersbearah said...

awww tao !! maybe you gotta let your skin breathe for a while, it's okay you're still beautiful. =]

ilurvemakeup said...

I'm with и¡†α, the banana w/baking soda she recommended me awhile ago from my bc breakout worked!

I love that top on you :)

yumyumsushi said...

yikes! skin freak out! i hate that! :(
i feel like i'm going through that right now...not that i had perfect skin before, but it's worse now bahh!

maybe it's the weather change...idk..but i hope it calms down...BUT DANG WOMAN! you cover it reallll well! i need to learn from you! haha

Fifi said...

i have the same problem. my skin suffers from breakout and it's been like a month or so. and i'm 90% sure it's because of my new skin care products. i have thrown them away though =(

i hope your skin (and mine) will get better soon. =)

Emilita said...

Sorry that your face isn't doing so well. You did a great job with the makeup though - I especially like how the eye color subtly compliments your shirt with cool buttons. I really like your posts and added you to my blog roll. :)

Oh, and your dogs are freaking cute.

xphoebelinax said...

aw hun it looks like your skin is healing... so it's okay, like what everyone says, time heals all wounds! you're still gorgeous anyway! wish you all the best :)

Denishabeybeh said...

you go girl!

i really love your confidence to be photographed without a touch of make up.
not any girl can do that.
i can't do that.
you're pretty, with or without make up.
it's just so nice to see you being so talented and play with your looks.

hope to see more of you often.

Dio said...

You still very pretty Honey !!!
Really !

But I understand, skin can be bitchy ...

For me, this is more "une allergie" no ?

Roxy said...

maxy said...

Ling said...

Hey Dear~!

It's definitely an allergy reaction! Throw the moisturizer away! Evil moisturizer!

You are still looking cheery and great though! :D

Give it some time and you will be back to your flawless self soon! :)

Nic Nic said...

hi there babe,

I'm a reader from asia and i realised that a lot of the girls over here broke out in those small little bumps after using edm foundations and that includes me.

Maybe you should try changing your foundation? (cos i noticed that you have been using your edm quite frequently prior to this breakout..)

The blue top looks absolutely GORGEOUS
on you!
May I ask where it's from?

Natasha said...

Wow... at one time I also had nooo zits. Now, I moved to South America and my skin was like WTF!?!?!

Ms. ___ 2 be!! said...

wow, great cover up...hehe

izumi said...

WOW. your makeup is amazing! i'm just starting out but i hope i can be half as good as you :) haha. i have a pretty bad face too.. thankfully clearing up 'cause i started using products w/ benzoyl peroxide. hope your face gets better asap!

100PerCent said...

Hey,

Do you think it could be the ED minerals? I've heard SO many people complain that they were getting acne from it.

Ciao ciao!

tina said...

wow, you did a great job covering up. I can never cover up my pimples...and you have cute lips..=P

Anonymous said...

It's really not that bad! You covered your breakouts very nicely with makeup! Much better than mine looks sweetie!

Megan said...

Hi. My skin looks worse than that- on a good day.
I thought that the top pictures were the before!
You're fine =3
