  • If you are trying to hide blemishes rather than even out your skin tone then I would spend the money on acne products and try different ones till you find one that works and dont wear any foundation.

  • Oh I have been trying for years to find something that works for my acne but to no avail I have not had much luck! I get hormonal cystic pimples once a month during my cycle! So yes I want something to even me out but cover when I get those. I have used bare minerals a few years back but I felt after awhile my skin looked duller.

  • Bare minerals. I still get mild acne and I have an oily T zone! I love my foundation!

  • I like any of them BUT the mineral powders; I much prefer liquid. What I have learned is that any foundation will work great if you exfoliate your skin on a regular basis and use a great primer before applying your foundation (I personally love Smashbox) ... my makeup looks flawless every time!

  • Bareminerals is a nice foundation to help prevent acne. It doesn't clog up pores. But if you want it to conceal pimples, i'm not quite sure it's something you would want. I wear Bare Minerals and love it! but on days I break out, I use 100% Pure foundation, either the liquid or pressed powder. Both work wonders and don't clog up the pores as well. I always known Acne to be sensitive skin and sensitive skin can't wear makeup with too much junk in it. Go for a more natural/organic foundation.
