3 foundations for acne-prone skin


Hello! Today I really wanted to talk about a few foundations that I've found to work really well with my acne-prone skin. For years I tried foundation after foundation, trying to find just one that actually matched my skin tone, (Hi, I'm Casper, nice to meet you) and also didn't break me out. For a long time when I was much younger, I settled with Rimmel London's 'Match Perfection', the only reason being, that it matched my pale skin. But every single time I used it, I broke out in these weird tiny bumps under my skin, alongside all the other issues I was having with acne too. I think makeup companies are a whole lot better for being more diverse in their colour shades in the past few years, but I still wanted to narrow down a few that I've been loving, and hopefully, you will too!

1. Maybelline's 'Fit Me' Matte & Poreless Foundation

The first one on the list is one that I use almost every single day, the Fit Me, Matte & Poreless foundation for £6.99. I think something inside me changed when I first discovered this foundation. It's very lightweight with a thin consistency, and still has really great coverage! It's great to be used for a natural look, or can be layered easily for a more full coverage. It looks fairly matte and smooth, doesn't build up in dryer areas and covers blemishes easily without too much work or fuss. Best of all, it doesn't break me out at all! I feel as though my skin still has time to breathe because of the thinner consistency to it, and this foundation really works well for me. This is definitely my most recommended foundation of all time.

2. Clinique's 'Anti-Blemish Solutions' Foundation

I first discovered this about four years ago when I started to use the Clinique 3-Step skincare for my acne. I wanted to use a foundation that worked with my skincare rather than against it, and I have to say, it does the job to a certain extent. I wouldn't say that it was ever the foundation that changed how my acne cleared up on my skin, but it definitely didn't cause any either. The main positive for me with this foundation is that it didn't burn on the skin like a lot of other foundations often do with bad acne areas. It doesn't feel heavy on the skin even though it's a heavier and more full coverage formula, it stays matte and lasts throughout the day too. This one sells for £27 in Boots, a bit pricier but you need a very small amount. I've never actually finished a bottle of this, rather than my foundation has gone out of date and I've purchased a new one because of this, so I would definitely say it lasts a lot longer than my 'Fit Me' foundation with the same amount in a bottle.

3. Kat Von D's 'Lock It' Foundation

Lastly, I wanted to mention the Lock It foundation from Kat Von D. This is a popular one in the online beauty world, and as I've mentioned before in my review, it's not my favourite foundation ever. But a huge upside to this particular foundation is that you can pack it on heavily without causing your skin to breakout. It does cling to drier areas, but as long as your skincare rituals are well up to date, it really is a good foundation. My go-to foundation when I'm wanting a heavier makeup look for a night out or an event. If you're acne-prone like me and looking for a very full-coverage look, maybe if you're being photographed or it has to last a long time, this is definitely one I would recommend.

So that's it for my three top recommended foundations great for acne-prone skin! I've tried and tested a lot of foundations in my time, I've spent years trying to find the perfect foundations for my skin and these are the ones that really work well for me, and ones I've repurchased over and over. I hope you enjoyed reading, and hope this can be some help for you too.
