guys have acne too and I feel like we look past it see their good looks anyways but when a girl has acne she is ugly and must cover it up?
i am feeling horrible about my acne, its case of mild acne mixed with oiliness. but here is the thing I'm a very attractive person physically and personality wise but I have stupid acne... does acne take away that beauty from me? is that all guys see?

Sadly there is a double standard about acne and attractiveness for guys and girls. Guys will be made fun of for using concealer and the like while a girl will be seen as lazy/ugly for not taking the time to conceal. If you feel bad about your acne a good foundation can do wonders. I have mild skin issues as well and using foundation really gives me a confidence boost, as shallow as it is
i would suggest a cream to powder foundation because it's like buying a foundation and concealer all in one when you use different brushes. I like Urban Decay's Surreal Skin cream to powder with ELF complexion brush to apply as foundation and fingers for concealer (i'm saving for a brush now). go to one of their kiosks in macys or nordstrom and one of the MAs will match your skin tone. Avoid MAC or drugstore makeup because it can really break some people out. If your skin is really sensitive then mineral makeup is really good. Powder foundations help keep you from looking oily as well as cream to powders. Also, good skincare is great because it stops the acne before it starts. good luck finding some makeup that works for you!
