  • use oil base concealer, it blends with your skin and doesn't cake

  • Also use the Bare Minerals cosmetic line, and also anything with mineral powder foundation. It allows your skin to breath and looks more natural.

  • I can't agree with trying Bare Minerals or any mineral powder foundations as stated above; I've tried them all and don't understand why everyone likes them so much; they simply don't work for me. Have you tried going to Sephora? I like going there because they'll let you try all different brands of products until you find what looks good on you; they won't push you to buy a particular brand like they do at other makeup counters.

  • apply a moisturizer first than your foundation that will keep it from caking some foundations seem thick so i just mix my foundation and moisturizer or try a mousse foundation

  • I work in a spa and sell avon products. I think what you need is good skin care products first and then a good foundation. If you go to my web site and look at the Anew products you will find they are made for different skin types and I feel that the clinical solutions dermal scrub would exfoliate your skin to bring the new cells to the top making your skin look fresh again. You only need to use microderm once a week. Then if you buy the Anew foundation that matches your skin tone, if you are cleansing, moisturizing and using the dermabrasion you should be very happy with the way your skin looks.

  • Start using a good skincare program for blemish prone skin. Your foundation will go on and blend better on condition skin. I use the Mary Kay.
