Accutane and Make-up?

Hey, I posted this on the prescription board, but I'm thinking more people might be able to answer it on here. I'm considering starting Accutane and was just wondering how the girls dealt with make-up during their time on it. Did you use it or scrap it altogether? Did it make your face dry? Did it interfere with clearing up? If you got an initial break-out, did the make-up cover it? Was it able to mask any of the redness? What about lips? Is lip gloss out of the question with the dry, chapped lips? This isn't one of my deciding factors, but I was just wondering what to expect. I don't wear it every day, but when my face gets really bad, I normally resort to using it. Any responses would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I have tried Accutane. I did use make up during my treatment. Initially the acne got worse then it cleared. It did make my face drier and my lips were chapped. I used some lip gloss and that didn't bother me.
