Make up during accutane

I should really be on accutane but im very worried about what it would be like applying make up during the time im on it.

By that i mean that im woried about the dryness and flakiness that accutane will end up causing and how make up would appear on me. My skin dries up pretty easily anyway.

I never go out without wearing makeup (liquid foundation and powder) so if accutanes going to cause my skin to look bad (flaky and dry) in make up, i dont think im up for it.

Can anyone out there let me know of their own personal experiences of wearing makeup while on accutane?

I wore makeup when i was on accutane and never had a problem with it. Use a good (oil free) moisturiser to try to avoid the effects of the dryness and apply this before applying makeup so it can be used as 'base'. A great moisturiser IMO is Estee Lauder daywear plus. As for foundations, i found that liquids didnt adhere to the skin properly so i went for creme foundations - couvrance do an oil free creme compact but i don't know if its available outside the UK.
