Makeup Tips for Acne Prone Skin

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another makeup post.  I had a model with some challenging skin that I wanted to share.  I know a lot of people suffer with acne and scarring and I thought it would be helpful to break down how I use makeup to cover it.  Check it out!

Here are 4 tips for flawless makeup application on acne prone skin.

Tip 1
Prep the skin.  Oftentimes the area might be dry from acne medications and it can also be oily which caused clogged pores and pimples.  It's also nice to apply a setting or barrier spray to protect the skin from makeup.

Tip 2
Color correct.  Use a green corrector for acne that is red and a peach to orange corrector for darker spots.  Apply in a patting motion.  If the spot is stubborn you can set it with powder.

Tip 3
Foundation.  Use the right coverage where needed.  I used a cream foundation for full coverage on spots like acne and scars.  I then topped it with a lighter weight silicone foundation using my airbrush machine.  That way, I didn't remove any coverage and the silicone formula smoothed and evened her skin tone.

Tip 4
Set.  Use powder to lock the foundation in place.  Use a powder puff or a brush to pat or tap the powder in place as to not remove coverage.  Finish with a setting spray to ensure that makeup lasts.  I also like using a setting spray to take away the excess powder to give the skin a natural finish.
