I'm on week 2 of the regimen and I am starting college in 9 days!

I tried putting makeup on yesterday (bare minerals powder makeup) and it looked horrible, my face was so oily that I just looked so shiny and it didn't cover up my acne very well at all because it went all patchy..

How long do you recommend putting the moisturiser on for before putting makeup on??

Thanks

I love mineral makeup but it did not work very well for me with active acne or oil problems. When I had oily skin I had to use liquid foundation.

You may also try a different moisturizer. I have seen posts on here before where other people can't get the DKR moisturizer to "sink in". I find that CeraVe sinks into my skin really well.

I did not do well with Bare Minerals. It itched and broke me out, and it does look unnaturally shiny and sinks into every pore and flaw. I'll link you to our makeup tips.
