Ok so when I was about 11-14 I had really bad acne and I was stupid and decided to pick at it. Well now I'm 18 and I no longer have acne like I used to. I occasionally get small breakouts but that's not my concern. My concern is my scars. Does anyone have any tips for acne scars?

Picture where you can see the scarring.

Also I would like to wear more eyeshadow but sadly I have no idea what colors would look good on me for like everyday wear and then if I'm going out or something because of my skin tone.

Pictures for skin tone.

I used to be not necessarily a tom boy, but just not into makeup throughout high school and now that I'm a young adult I feel its time to start pampering myself more I guess. Thanks in advance!

Mederma as moisturizer.

Omg I never thought of that! I remember I used to use Mederma (not the moisturizer though the gel) but my mom stole it from me lol. I need to get some more! Thanks for reminding me! :)

aww you really are pretty!

okay, so.. in my opinion a good foundation will do it. maybelline, l'oreal and revlon all have some great products out there.
one of my best friends has pretty much the same problem, she uses revlon's colorstay foundation and it does wonders for her skin. it's a liquid foundation though, so you're going to need a foundation brush to apply it.
if you think you need extra coverage, pair it up with concealer on the remaining scars. my friend for example only wears concealer when she gets small breakouts.

as for eyeshadow colors... i personally think metallic colors look AMAZING on your skin tone. you should try warm colors, like gold, plum or olive green and avoid colors like white or silver.

hopefully that was helpful.. lol

I've heard good things about bio-oil for acne scarring, look into that perhaps :)

And if you're just starting your eyeshadow collection, start off with neutrals. browns, taupes, bronzes, etc would look great on your (and practiccally any) skin tone
