  1. 5 Best Foundations for Acne Prone Skin Acne is the most common skin disease and contrary to popular belief – it doesn’t affect just teenagers. Dreadful pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, papules and cysts can affect just about anyone, regardless of their race, gender or age. And while the cause of these outbreaks is still unknown, dermatologists and cosmetologists have started developing lines of cosmetic and beauty products specially designed for acne prone skin. So, instead of always listeni
  2. Updates! My skin has been doing great and I've been picking less! I think I picked two times within the week.. and it was the same spot haha, didn't do much damage I've really kicked the habit of gluing myself to the mirror and killing my skin. I just got a renewal on my minocycline prescription but my derm said that they ran out of duac samples! D: so I might be getting the BP and the clindamycin separately within the next week..... I cant wait for that! As for pimples, I got one on my rig
  3. I occasionally use foundation to mask scars, but I wonder if I make it worse. Maybe I slow down the healing process?
  4. Has it been your experience that mattifying liquid foundation settles into scars, making them look more noticeable as the day wears on? (Actually, this question could apply to powder foundation, as well, though I'm more concerned about liquid foundation at present.) I'm thinking of trying Estee Lauder's Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup (liquid foundation), which many reviewers on Ulta.com state has a mattifying effect. That's great for oily-looking skin and large pores--both of which I have; b
  5. Ive been struggling with acne for about 3 years now and I'm still looking for a liquid foundation that covers everything. Im on my second round of roaccutane which is so frustrating and Im always so self conscience about my skin. Any other makeup recommendation would be extremely appreciated! thanks
  6. hello! i'll let know 1st that i've less or no idea about doing make-up. i use a sunscreen that my derma had prescribed.its MELAGARD 50+. It's got ZINC OXIDE alone with few other chemical blocks in it. as zno does,it leaves a slightly pale look. covered look. i have a concealer from AVON. AVON STICK CONCEALER. now,what i want to know is CAN I USE THE SUNSCREEN ALL OVER MY FACE AND THEN PUT THE CONCEALERS JUST ON MY POST-ACNE SPOTS/BLEMISHES ETC?? DO I NEED A POWDER/COMPACT/
  7. Hi all, I just wrote a tutorial on my blog for covering acne- with pictures and a step by step guide. Feel free to check it out. I used to be a professional makeup artist and also have acne- its actually not too bad at the moment but has been severe in the past. Whilst I'm having a flare up I thought it would be a good time to create a picture tutorial: www.4loveofmakeup.wordpress.com Here are some product recommendations- i swear by these! Laura Mercier Secret Camoflage conc
  8. I heard that prescriptives makes custom made foundation..oil free, color etc.. has anyone heard anything about this?
  9. Someone on the board reco'd the above, and I have to say, it really stays on. It hasn't broken me out and I love the staying power. Just wanted to say a big thank you. I've tried everything. At Kroger's the other day, they had Loreal, buy one, get one, so I got two and am glad I did. I've had punch excision, which helped my pores tremendously, but I think I will always have a little redness from where the holes used to be. I dab the ColorStay on over them and it STAYS on. Thanks so much.
  10. [-o< I have really light skin and whenever I try on foundation it always looks orange and goes cakey on my blemishes...please give me your opinions on the best foundations to use!
  11. There are so many guides out there about mineral makeup! There are so many ingredients that can be put into mineral makeup. Some are good and some are not so good. There is also a lot of bad hype about certain ingredients that is simply not true. Another note about ingredients. Mineral makeup doesn't generally contain what people like to call "fillers". I have not seen an ingredient in my research that does not have some form of use in each product. So, I don't consider anything liste
  12. I'm currently using Revlon Colorstay, and its okay, but in the sunlight my face looks orange and uneven. I haven't been able to find a better foundation because they all make my pores look worse or make me look really orange. Any suggestions??
  13. ok guys ive been depressed and watching those late night informercials....SHEER COVER MAKEUP keeps being advertised and it seems so convincing!! its a mineral powder which covers flawlessly like a liquid foundation over redness, marks and any other flaws....supposedly!!! what i really really want to know before i go out and spend all my money is whether anyone has tried it before and whether it actually works!!!! of course on the ads they have ppl who look great wearing it but i really need s
  14. For a male, if i just want to reduce the oiliness and redness on my face just a bit without any thing heavy or noticeable, will just a bit of powder on my nose and cheeks be okay? or do u have to apply concealer, foundation and all the other stuff 2? is powder alone safe? I have moderate acne, blackheads, whiteheads, papules and maybe a few nodules.. i cant tell the difference. but its just blotchy, red skin tone. any help suggested
  15. Hey everyone, Does anyone know good makeup (foundation/powder), that looks good in photographs? Im getting married soon, and I really want my pics to come out ok, and not look like my face is white as a ghost! LOL PLEASE HELP!
  16. hey everyone- Do you mix moisturizer with your foundation before applying foundation? If so, what kind of moisturizer? Also, do any of you know how to apply foundation/concealer without having streaks? That always happens to me and when I try to blend the streaks, the foundation/concealer comes off of my skin and the blemish shows once again as if I hadn't done anything!!! AHHHH! Thanks for your help!!
  17. I have been looking at this site for the best foundation (and I understand that what could work for one person may not work for another). There are so many different recommendations, I thought I could take a general poll on the foundations that I have seen on this site and rank them. I would really appreciate any help I can get and new suggestions too. L'Oreal Mattique? Clinique? Almay? Maybelline? Prescriptives? Cover Girl? MAC? Mary Kay? Something that prevents oily skin from emergi
  18. Hi, For those of you who have offered suggestions to my previous post for "best foundation for a newbie" THANK YOU! I appreciate all of your advice. Although they are all great...none has matched my yellow-olive (I am part asian) complexion except for Shiseido (which I haven't worn in years because it didn't help my skin at all). Does anyone know of any other lines that have similar "quite yellow" shades, but would work well with combination (but VERY oily t-zone) blemish prone skin?
  19. I know that I might be asking too much ](*,) . But I'm looking for something with better oil control and it must cover red and purple spots. I have cystic acne and some scarring and of course redness from my inflammed skin. The foundation I use now is Revlon Colorstay in Buff. It covers great but after a few hours it is completely oily. I try to keep it up by blotting with tissue and putting on more powder (Covergirl "clean" pressed powder)but eventually it wears off my make up. My face look
  20. All I have to say is that Bare Minerals is the best makeup ever! I can put on my makeup in minutes without having an oily feeling on my face. It covers so well and looks like I don't have much makeup on. If I have something to cover, I get a que-tip and dab it in the BM foundation and dab it on. Then I put on the mineral veil. I am so happy that I have it. You should try it.
  21. This may sound stupid (I'm new here by the way), but what is mineral makeup and what are some of the brand names? I've seen a lot of people discussing it. I'm guessing it's the more expensive stuff like Clinique... Anyway, my name is Holly. I've been breaking out since I was 10. I just buy my makeup from the drugstore or Walmart--nothing too expensive (I'm poor, lol). I buy things that say they're oil-free and non-comedogenic (but I think we all know that doesn't always amount to anythin
  22. has anyone tried using oil of ulay day cream ?? is it non comodogenic ?? and can u use a moisturizer + a sun block + foundation +blusher ??
  23. Does anyone know of a good, non-comedogenic, natural-looking pressed powder, that hopefully minimizes the appearance of large pores. The amount of coverage is not an issue, since I use it as a setting powder (and to prevent any shine). I recently switched to using coverblend foundation, which covers very, very well. Unfortunately, they only sell loose powder, which I bought, but I am finding it very annoying to apply and transport. Drugstore, cosmetic counter, or online product suggestions are
  24. It's called: Loreal Ideal Balance Combonation Skin foundation. It covers pretty well, although it feels a bit greasy like the other Loreal foundations. To go with it, I also got Loreal Combonation Skin concealer stick- that's where the real magic is. This is a good concealer stick. What I really want is no more purple marks all over my face, but hey, I guess I'm on my way... I want summer! I swear, my school wants to kill us! (September 9-June 23). We'll die from the heat! On the bright s
  25. It's called i.d. makeup and it's made out of minerals and it's totally amazing. The foundation is a powder that you brush on your skin and it covers everything, and makes your skin look amazing. And it doesn't clog your pores at all. In fact, they say you can even sleep with it on (I don't know =) And it's great even on dry and flaky skin (like mine get sometimes, because of the acne). I really really recommend this to you all 'cause I just love it!
