Hi there, i'm an asian male with some moderate acne although most has subsided i'm left with a lot of red spots/redness/dark hyperpigmentation spots.

 

I was hoping someone here could recommend me to some make-up products that could help cover/conceal this (foundations,concealers,bbcreams etc)

 

im asian with yellow undertones i believe, I currently wear bb cream but i feel that midway through the day it gets very oily and it also looks very unnatural in natural lighting

 

=(

 

 

thanks in advance

For redness, acne marks and hyperpigmentation I always rely on my MAC Studio Concealer. They have shades for almost everybody and it does a really good job of staying put on oily skin. I would know because I have really oily skin. If you have a MAC counter near where you live, try going and having them help you find the right shade and how to apply it w/o looking unnatural. My MAC counter helped me through this and I got a concealer and power to help me conceal and set my face so it won't come of throughout my day.


Morning Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion + Neutrogena Moisture with SPF 15 + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Evening Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: Cetaphil Moilturizing Cream + Acne.org AHA + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Extras:
- Concealer: MAC Studio Finish Concealer in C25 (for redness)
- Pressed Powder: MAC Select Sheer in NC20 (for mattefying)
- Foundation: Revlon Colorstay for Oily/Combination Skin in Buff (for even skin tone)
- Scrub: St. Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control (twice a week in the AM)
- Medication: Diane 35
                     Meftormin 500mg (for PCOS)
- Supplements: Vitamin D3 (1000UI/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
                         Zinc (50mg/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
 
And this is all done as gently as possible. smile.png

Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation / serum has strong yellow undertones. Very good for asian skin tones. It's light/medium buildable coverage and is the most natural looking foundation I've ever come across, perfect for guys. It looks pretty much undetectable in natural lighting when blended well. I would suggest just using a light layer of that and then getting a good concealer. 

 

If you want full coverage without a concealer which will not look so natural, then have a look at rimmel lasting finish 25 hour foundation. doesn't get oily at all until about 7 hours of wear on oily skin. The undertones are quite pink in those though.


Morning Routine:

- Avene Soapless Gel Cleanser

- Boots Time Delay AHA Toner

- Boots Botanics Rosewater Toning Spritz

- Hyaluronic Acid Serum (homemade)

- Hazelnut oil with rosemary + clary sage (on acne prone areas)

- Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Cream (10% Glycolic Acid)

- SK:N Sunscreen SPF 30

- W7 Camera Ready Primer

 

Evening Routine:

- Lush Ultrabland + Washcloth 

- Soap & Glory ULTIMELT Hot Cloth Cleanser + Washcloth

- Boots Time Delay AHA Toner

- Differin 0.1% cream 

- Hazelnut oil with rosemary + clary sage (stops oil production)

- Vitamin C Serum (also homemade) OR

- Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum

 

Once/Twice a week:

- Green Clay Mask (+ salicylic acid)

- Exfoliate with No7 skin cleansing brush
