If you're smart you'll realize this has very little to do with pimples

Makeup is a band-aid fix. If I choose to eat miniature reeses for lunch on Friday, I will wake up on Saturday with new friends on my face only concealable with copius amounts of bare minerals. The makeup doesn't take away the redness or the pain, it just hides it for a while. I'm all about those band-aid fixes. Distractions that keep you from thinking about the one thing you want to think about. The fact of the matter is that eventually you get sick of the distractions, you take off the bandaid, you remove the makeup. What remains is the same sore that was there before. It has been strategically ignored but is ready to hurt you until you pay attention to it.
