I got to the stage around 6 months ago where I found myself unable to leave the house without some amount of face coverage. Since then until now, I'd only use liquid foundation all over for great coverage, but still encountered some of the expected problems that arise with covering your face with makeup.
Just a few days ago I decided to swap my liquid makeup (I'd used Clinique anti-blemish liquid makeup) for seemingly lighter mineral powder foundation (Nude by Nature/Proactiv brand). The difference was quite a shock - the feel of it is quite annoying (even if I moisturise and prime my skin well) and while I haven't seen any flare ups, it just feels like my pores are clogging up moreso than I did with liquid. I suppose swirling goop around on my face should be worse than a cake of power just sitting on top, but who knows
Is this a sign to stop and go back to my usual makeup, and are there any benefits you've personally experienced by sticking by powder foundation? Also, what can mineral powder do for your overall complexion?
