How I Cover My Acne

I have dealt with pesky acne for a few years now and it has come and gone in various places among my face and left scarring behind. It's one of the things I'm most insecure about on my face but I've found a way to make it "*magically*" disappear. Hear are the products I use:
I lost this foundation for the winter (which is when I break out the most) because it's medium-full coverage with a matte finish. It doesn't feel heavy which is something I look for the most in foundations. I use the shade 150 Buff.
I use this foundation with the Sigma Round Top Kabuki. I just dip it into the foundation and apply it straight to my face.
This is the best concealer I've ever used. I've had it for a year to a year and a half I believe and it's still going strong (Although I've lost the cap haha). It stays put all day long, as you can see its waterproof. It is so full coverage it will usually cover the darkest spots. I believe I use the shade number 3.
The brush I use for my concealer is a double ended brush that came with the Naked 2. It is a synthetic brush and I don't typically like synthetic brushes for powder eyeshadows so I've started using it for concealer. I squeeze out a little concealer on the back if my hand and dip the flag shader end into the product. I then apply the product to the blemish and blend the edges out with fluffy crease brush end. This blends it seamlessly into the skin without taking away the product on top of the blemish.
I then use my bareMinerals concealer in powder form to set everything in. If I have an extra strong blemish that can't quite be covered, adding this on top will cover it completely.
The brush I use for that is the Signa Medium Angled Shading Brush. It has the right mixture of stiffness and and fluffiness. 

Here are the before and after pictures of my skin:

I put on the powder but I won't show you what it looks like because it didn't make too much a difference since the foundation and concealer covered everything nicely.

Have you tried any of these products? What did you think of them? Thanks for reading!
