So it was my first day of school and I have a pretty bad breakout ( I have some updated pics in my gallery ) and it can be covered up with makeup BUT it takes so much to cover up that it all looks cakey. I mean for an hour its great but then... it just kinda goes through the day and near the end it just looked to dry and cakey for me.
I don't think its the makeup since I have been very pleased with it. I just know its the amount I put on. I put on a generous amount of foundation all over my face but while that evens out my skin, it doesn't hide the acne. So when I apply powder I apply it all around then pat around all over the areas that need to be covered which isn't a low number.
And trust me, it looks awesome the first hour. And I bring my powder along to touch up, but sooner or later it doesn't really help.
I know caking on makeup doesn't help the situation but my friends, who always say " Just don't wear makeup " don't understand how hard it is to walk out the door without it. Especially because i feel like I have the worst acne in my class.
Are there any tips that can help me cover my flaws without caking my face or making it dry after a while ( that wouldn't really involve me switching products. Like I said, its mostly the amount I use ).
PS thinking about buying some BB cream so when my skin does calm down and those big zits fade I can only wear a light cream with a little powder and maybe it won't be so cakey. But I can't do that with my skin so bad.
