  • BARE MINERALS has excellent coverage, non irratating. I wouldnt order online, try to find a store that seels bare minerals. I went to "Ulta" where they actually gave me a mini makeover, finding the right shade, helping to cover my problem area. try it

  • water based.. for foundations and concealers..
    a good toner before applying..

    and foaming cleansers to remove and before applying.

  • Neutrogena used to have a line of Skin Clearing liquid foundation that was EXCELLENT. I use Loreal mineral make-up, the problem with it is concealing. But I've worked around it. It will settle in wrinkles but I use DermaSilk before putting it on to make sure all is smooth!

  • I would have to agree with the Bare Minerals I have seen it work really well for people with acne. You can always go to the mac or sephora store and do a trial run. They have experts there that can help you find the right coverage for your skin.

  • Jane Iredale is a very good line for people with problem skin. Alot of plastic surgeons and Derms sell it to their clients who need good coverage without irritating the skin. Ive used it and its awesome, expensive but awesome. oh and it DOES NOT feel heavy at all, thats what I love. I had bad skin and Bare minerals made my forehead break out in tiny little bumps, it was horrible.
