Best Foundation/Concealer for Acne


Does anyone have any suggestion for a foundation / concealer that works well for covering up acne? Or at least one that has ingredients to help improve the skin ? My skin is dry/normal, so I (almost) never get oily.

Vichy Dermablend Foundation

I love this foundation a lot! It has great coverage and doubles as a concealer for under eye dark circles. I don't know about ingredients in improving skin, but it's never caused me to break out and I have sensitive skin. I have freckles and I use it sometimes to cover them up when they get too crazy from the skin so it works well as a high coverage product that doesn't look cakey.

Foundation for acne

Try a foundation from Vichy or La Roche Posay.

Hard candy has a great heavy duty concealer that will cover up acne, and it's pretty cheap!

But if you are looking for something with an active ingredient in it I would recommend the body shop's tea tree concealer, it has good coverage and helps heal!

Concealer/ foundation stick?

Have you tried either a concealer or foundation stick? They make cream to powder formulas that are super easy to apply and offer full coverage without looking cakey. I know a couple good ones if you need a suggestion =]

None. But let Me Explain Myself.

None. Use a lot of benzoyl peroxide. I do mean an obscene amount. You'll be "ugly" for a minute but you will be happy that you gave your skin a break.

I currently use babors Mattifying foundation but try to find something more natural or organic, there's a lot of parabens and talc that clog your pores and out nasty stuff in your skin which is not favourable for acne.

Full coverage concealer

Make Up For Ever makes a really good concealer. It claims to provide coverage for "most extreme flaws, such as scars, severe skin damage, beauty spots, depigmentation or birthmarks." (See http://www.makeupforever.com/int/en-int/make-up/face/concealer/full-cover for more details).

It comes in an array of shades. It is a bit pricey, however you only need a tiny amount. Another advantage is that the ingredients are supposed to help calm acne/irritated skin.
