I’ve had my fair share of acne struggles since I was 14 and had a minefield in between my eyebrows. Through many phases of trial and error I have found some really great foundations; high end and drugstore that really do cover those pesky bumps. I feel like any tips I have picked up along the way should be shared because honestly, pimples are just the worst.
4. Clinque Even Better Makeup SPF 15 $27.00
5. Kat Von D Lock-it Tatoo Foundation $35.00
My all time favorite is the Estée Lauder Makeup, it does not look caked on and when applied with a wet beauty blender it creates a flawless look, truly covering any redness or acne you may have. It also really does last all day, take it from someone who puts on her makeup at 7 am and doesn’t take it off until at least 7 pm.
Whats great about the It Cosmetics and Clinque foundations is that they have coverage as well as an SPF to help protect your skin. The Even Better foundation I have been wearing for years and has a great build-able coverage look, while still looking very natural. The It Cosmetics is a new discovery for me but a little bit will cover any mark you have on your face, who can complain about that?
Now, lets not forget about the Revlon Color Stay Whipped foundation. This was the first foundation I had ever tried and I’ve been repurchasing it ever since, it gives such a matte full coverage look and its half the price. I’ve had friends ask me why my skin looks so good while wearing this foundation! It’s definitely a staple in my collection. The only reason I wouldn’t recommend wearing it everyday would be that its pretty thick. That’s not to say that it feels heavy on the skin, but for me its more of a night out foundation or if I know I’ll need my makeup to hold up for 24 hours.
The Kat Von D foundation is very similar to the Revlon one in coverage and feel on the skin, however you will need way less, one pump of this pretty much covers my whole face and has great staying power.
