Ive been using Dermablend Smooth Indulgence Foundation for the last 4 years and love it !  It has awesome coverage but you have to be careful when applying it or it will look heavy. This is by far the best foundation I have ever used.

 

Second the dermablend, the stuff can cover a tattoo so it's great for acne prone ppl. However I do notice that even after an hour wearing it my face can turn really oily so make sure you use lots of setting powder. A nice tip from gossmakeupartist on youtube is to powder your face BEFORE you put your foundation on. It keeps foundation in place a lot better than doing it the other way around. Such a genius trick.

 

Also since dermablend is pricey most days I wear Cover Girl's Aquasmooth foundation. That stuff is SOOO nice. It's almost like a creamy powder consistance but it's actually labeled a cream. It has medium to light coverage but easily buildable with a beauty blender or sponge. Make sure you dab it on more than wipe it on. This stuff is super cheap like $9 at Walmart. I'm buff beige, some of the other colors are a bit on the pink side so I stay with that one. The packaging is my only negative with it, it looks pretty 90s but hey it works great and is really cheap.

 

Does anyone have any good BB cream recs for those on the regimen? My face is ofc dry and peeling on the regimen but then also oily throughout the day. The Garnier BB cream caused peeling or something weird when I tried it on today. Little rolls of skin or the product were all over my face as I rubbed it on, bummer :/

I love RCMA foundation. It is a cream, which scared me at first with acne-prone skin. It has never broken me out and I've been using it for a couple years. The ingredients are minimal. I have to apply it with a Beauty Blender or my nose flakies will act up. It's pricey but lasts longer than the same size in liquid foundation.

 

I also occasionally use Kett Hydro foundation. It is an airbrush makeup but I apply it with a Beauty Blender as well. The ingredients are minimal and it doesn't break me out. I can't use this one too many days in a row because it will make my nose flakies act up. A day or two is fine though.

 

For comparison sake: My skin is acne-prone, mostly oily but with dry patches on my chin and the border of my nose. My makeup cannot emphasize dry patches. I work long shifts (12-14 hours) so whatever makeup I use must be able to last a really long time with no reapplication and minimal blotting. I live in the desert so it also must last in 110°F heat. These are the only two that have worked for me.

Your skin sounds like mine, and I live in the hot dry desert as well. I'll have to check these out. I'm pretty loyal to Estee Lauder, but am always looking for BETTER!

I love Estee too. I use the max cover version of double wear. It is some seriously intense coverage, but I like it because I can just put a little dab of it in my moisturizer when I want just some light coverage, like for work or everyday stuff. If I want more coverage for a fancy event or something, I just put a bit more foundation and a bit less moisturizer, so it's very versatile. Also, at full strength it makes a great concealer for a couple red marks I have, so I just dab a bit in places where I need extra coverage and it blends in beautifully, instead of having to use a separate concealer and try to match it.

 

I think the regular double wear is probably great too, I just like how versatile this one is because I can use it stronger or make my own 'tinted moisturizer' out of it and it takes the smallest amount so I don't feel like I'm wearing so much makeup.

Yup, max cover version for me, too. And I don't even bother with a concealer, either. I use a very fine brush, dab it on, then set with some loose powder. It's amazing what this stuff will cover. When my skin was oily, it kept the slickies at bay—the result was that I always had a nice, dewy texture. Now, that I'm drying out, moisturizer instead of a serum is a must, and I switched out my oil blotting sunscreens with regular formulations. Otherwise, I end up looking chalky. As I'm beginning to clear, I'm using less. Will definitely try your tinted moisturizer trick!
