Which Foundation Primer for Acne Prone Skin?

Makeup artists have consistently told me to use primer before applying any makeup. However, since my skin breaks out so easily, I have only tried out primers on and off for several years. It is only recently that I found a primer that not only works, but doesn’t irritate my skin either. It is Clean Slate by Tarte Cosmetics.

Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup
The latest acne makeup from Clinique has many acne sufferers excited and hopeful. Most of the other medicated acne makeup on the market is relatively useless and doesn’t provide the coverage or texture that looks natural. Is this the answer we’ve been looking for? Let’s take a look at the facts and reviews before jumping for joy just yet.

Description:

Korres Foundation: Liquid or Powder

After a particularly bad experience trying out a new product that made my face break out, I decided to try an all-natural Korres foundation that a saleswoman recommended.  I have only ever tried their eye cream before, so I was a little hesitant at first.  Having read through all of the ingredients, I determined that there wasn’t anything too scary in it that would irritate my skin.  In order to have foundation makeup for different occasions, I tried both the Korres Wild Rose Foundation(a liquid) and the Korres Wild Rose Compact Powder.  I prefer to use the powder one when I am in a rush in the morning and only want a quick, light application of makeup to get me out the door.  A liquid foundation takes me a little longer to apply and doesn’t look quite as natural on my face in the daylight, so I save it for evenings or going to meetings where I need to look more professional.

Meet Matte: Bare Minerals Matte Foundation

I did a review of Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals Matte foundation not long ago. Recently, I came across this video that Bare Escentuals must have created when they first introduced their matte foundation. It’s so funny that I had to share it with everyone. I didn’t know they had such a sense of humor. It looks like a fun place to work. Take a look if you need a laugh.

You can read my Bare Minerals Matte Foundation review if you want to learn more about this product. It’s great as makeup for oily, sensitive skin with acne.

P.S. This foundation has no bismuth oxychloride, in case that is an issue for those of you with very sensitive skin.

You are getting ready to head out the door to school, work, a party, dinner, shopping – you name it. Naturally, you want to look your best and feel good about yourself.  When you have acne, you are often more self-conscious about your looks than other people.  However, you can achieve a natural look with the right application techniques and tools.  Use acne makeup or any good makeup for acne prone skin, such as some of the ones recommended in our product reviews or store.  Just make sure you have thoroughly cleansed and moisturized your skin first, using your preferred acne skin care regimen, before applying your makeup.
