Hey! Wondering whats your favorite concealer, foundation, powder, etc. to use on SEVERE acne?


I know it's not the best to use, but not all of us can go out in this world without a little bit of hiding our inflammation.


I currently have the follow lineup - Almay liquid foundation for acne, Neutrogena powder foundation for acne and I also have Clinique's acne prone liquid foundation which I RARELY use. It does cover the best out of all other foundations but I've noticed it dries my skin out around my lips and eyes and, also, my skin becomes itchier while some of my breakouts tend to get worse.


I'm looking for stuff WORTH trying since it's the only makeup I do wear (otherwise I'd be au naturale!). I cant do the 5 step routine just to put makeup on (it feels way too heavy), but if that really is the best for severe acne with cysts....then I suppose....


Thanks :)

I just use bare minerals.. but truly shouldn't be wearing anything  because my rosacea goes bonkers when anything touches my skin. So i just take care of my skin and spot conceal with bare minerals if i need too.
