Best makeup foundation

There is a reason why Estee Lauder Double Wear is the #1 selling foundation.  For those who say it looks terrible on, you don't know how to apply make-up and/or you don't have the right color.  For those of you who have had worse acne while using it, you may be allergic to something in the formula, but chances are you are using other products that are causing skin issues.  Sometimes I read people's beauty regimens or see YouTube videos of women with acne doing foundation reviews and before they apply the makeup, they are putting primers or moisturizers on, and then they go on to use sculpting and/or highlighting makeup - good grief.  No wonder they have so many skin issues.  

I have been using Double Wear for years.  Every time I have tried to switch, it causes skin issues and does not hold up to oily skin.  I finish it with Mary Kay Mineral powder.

I use glycolic acid and benzoyl peroxide to keep skin clear.  If I need to moisturize, I use plain Jojoba oil - smaller than dime size amount.  Amazing stuff and shrinks pores.  So the skin care regimen that suggests, is right on target.  

I use a foundation brush and clean it often with unscented Castille soap.  And a lot of the foundation sponges can cause acne.  I wash my face with very cool water and let it dry on its own - never use a towel.  To dry quicker or blot oil from my skin I only use Scott Tissue plain toilet paper and I carry a small amount in my purse. If I use any other tissue to blot or dry skin, I get breakouts.  

I wash my hands after every hair care product or body moisturizer I use.  I use perfume ver sparingly and keep it far from my face and spray below waist.  I stay far away from any hairspray - always causes acne.  Two foods that will make my skin break out if I eat too much:  strawberries.  shrimp.  35 years of trial and error and completely agree with regimen and suggestions.  Interesting that he has arrived at the same conclusions I have,  after years of experimentation.

The best foundation for oily skin

This is the best foundation for oily skin. I have tried many foundations and this one is my favourite. It covers all my scars and pigmentation but my skin looks natural and it lasts all day. I use it with a primer from benefit and I set it all up with Urban Decay's setting spray.

I have always had acne, got clear on the regimen, but then started getting very hormonal/ adult type. I tried using nothing but mineral makeup, Laura mercier was highly recommended, but also started having very oily skin. I even stopped the regimen for a while because estheticians thought I was essentially overproducing oil due to bp usage-- big mistake. Overall, I needed a makeup that wouldn't make me break out, would cover, and would Not oxidize. So, tried Estee Lauder double wear nude. Started it this month with their primer as well, the result is great:: A. Lasts all shift (10 hours in ER) B. Doesn't get greasy or oxidize/turn orange C. No new bumps unless I forget my BP I haven't agreed to put a single "wet" makeup on my face in ten years because of breakouts-- but this stuff is Definitely safe in my book With The Primer.

the best I have tried so far
It does help to cover up my acne, and it also does not make it worse. This is the only foundation that can last 10-12 hours with my very oily skin. However, it is very pricey and without a setting spray it can look very heavy. Still, would definitely recommend for oily skin.

Try the ELF Hydration Drops added into the foundation- a miracle product that makes it thin out but gives same coverage and no heaviness on skin

WOW, no oil whatsoever!
I have tried numerous foundations, and tried this one after watching countless blog videos and reading reviews online. This double wear paired with NYX concealer and translucent powder is a dream! It consistently lasts 12 hours of coverage with no touch ups! I apply with a beauty blender, will have a go with some brushes soon for alternate application. I just need to get a great primer to really reap the benefits of this product. FYI I cleanse, tone and moisturise with Clinique anti blemish (light blue bottle) range which assists against blocking of pores.

The best and only foundation I will wear!
I can't believe I didn't find this foundation sooner! I think the price always put me off, but you get what you pay for! The coverage and colours are spot on. I am extremely pale and can never seem to get anything light enough, but this foundation in the lightest shade "Shell" is perfect for me. It doesn't seem to positively or negatively affect my acne at all, but it covers the red marks and scars like a dream. I would highly recommend this product!

I apply with beauty blender or brush and has great coverage. It is buildable medium to full coverage, it does not look cakey if you apply full coverage. Great range of shades. Only complaint it does not come with a pump, but I have heard the MAC pump works well with this bottle, so I will try it out.

This stuff is incredible. I normally wear Clinique for every day wear, but this stuff covers my acne and acne marks extremely well. I usually only wear this on "special" occasions because it's pretty thick, but I love it and stays on beautifully. This has really been my saving grace when I want to look as flawless as possible even with acne plagued skin.
