So, I'm getting married in less than a week (WOOHOO!). Unfortunately, every problem I've ever experienced with my skin has decided to flare up all at the same time. I'm panicking because I don't know what to do (I am very skincare ignorant). I'm breaking out all over my face, shoulders, and back though this hasn't been an issue in a LONG time (thx hormones!). The KP I have on my arms and about which I am very, very, very self-conscious of, has decided to be extra bad (and I have a strapless, sleeveless dress....). My face skin, while breaking out, has rough, red, dry patches on my cheeks that have somehow mutated to be concealer-resistant despite layers of the stuff and green tinged powder. My pores are huge, there's blackheads everywhere, WHAT THE HELL, SKIN!?
Usually, I'm one of those lucky people who can not do anything with their skin, fall asleep with makeup, etc., and rarely have problems. I've been wanting to take better care of my skin anyways for a long time, but I don't know what to do. I certainly didn't expect the skinpocalypse to hit.
For the issues I can't fix with skincare in 6 days, what can I do with makeup? I'm also very makeup ignorant. Usually, I just put some foundation on, concealer on my gross red cheeks, green powder, and I put some eyebrow pencil (though I really don't know what I'm doing..I'd like full eyebrows but I don't know how to make it not look like I have pencil everywhere). Sometimes, if I'm going on a date with Manstrophy, I'll put on some lipstick, but it's always the color of my lip and just to even it out.
HELP. What do I do!? I don't have the money for a makeup consultant person for the wedding, so I'm doing all of my own hair and makeup. As many of you know, our wedding plans were cancelled several months ago due to my parents. I really want to feel beautiful on this day because it's all I have left. Please help!
