Face picker here! I tried neosporin and have the same results as everybody! Its great! My only issue was that i cant wear it during the day because its so "vaseline" like and makes my face shiny loking if i apply it all over, also it brings attention to my blemish. And forget makeup! So anyways, Neosporin is AMAZING for night use or days when you stay at the house, but for self concious people like me , TRY CORTISONE (or Hydrocortisone). I used it at a friends once and it worked as well if not better than Neosporin. I ended up buying the cream type (i'm sure neosporin also comes in a cream, i just havent looked into it...) I apply it after i wash my face as a moisturizer. I'm no dermatologist, but my face cleared up really nicely!!!! Both products are so great for acnee recovery, and the face pickers who make blemishes out of picking! They both are antibacterial i believe so if you do go at it one day and cant stop picking, at least it wont get infected! And it helps scaring, which is crucial when you are talking about the face!
Powder -Neutrogena - mineral sheers mineral powder foundation-fair to light

I'm trying to wear less makeup, giving my skin time to breathe. This was given to me and ive been using it for a week. It is nice for an all over setting of your liquid foundation or your concealer, but i wouldnt say it covers anything. If your skin is clear (i'm still working on that!) go ahead! Its wonderfully natural looking and sets your makeup underneath! you may have to add a little bit of foundatiion or darker face powder on your problem areas, but if you mix everything well, it will look nice. I like the change from heavy powders, The brush is pretty nice, but it is a little difficult to get as much powder out of this contraption as you would like sometime. As was said, tilt your head back! You can see the whif of powder, so you know its comming out!
This was actually given to me! I have the samples in 3 colors, clear, natural, and red. They are amazing! They go on amazingly and stay on for awhile! It doesnt last all day but it gives your lips amazing moisture and looks natural and sparkly on your lips without overdoing it!

I love my Skinlights face illuminator in bare light! I would love to swap for another as i just learned it is discontinued... It lasts quite some time, ive had mine for the better part of 2 years! Its almost glittery! You can use it as a thick layer on the eyes! I mix a little bit into myfoundation (loose powder) sometimes, just to add a little glamour! Great stuff!!!
Mascara -New York Color - Lengthening Mascara Brownish Black

I always buy one of these now! Its 2$ most places you go. The great thing about is that it looks natural, it just tints and places your lashes. I wear it on weekdays, at school, when i'm trying to look natural. Honeslty, its like you are not wearing anything! And when the mascara runs out i keep it and use the brush to adjust my darker and thicker mascaras, it does a great job removing extra gump and clumps! Overall, this is a great mascara!
I love this Mascara! It is very flexible and does not clump like other mascaras! It doesnt look fake, but your lashes look very long! This is my new favourite mascara! What i love most about it is that it doesn't make your lashes feel hard like some others do, i guess the Lycra keeps them soft.
