I’m prone to acne and the Clinique stuff did not work for me. Good coverage but it made me break out.

I wear their powder (no clue what it’s called) and their under eye concealer and I LOVE it. Both offer awesome coverage and last forever!

I actually got the Perfectly Real Compact Foundation when I went duty free shopping in the US for about 5 bucks, and I LOVE IT!!! It covers well, and leaves a great finish.

I also have bad skin problems, which it covers up nicely. I am just waiting until I can afford Bare Minerals, which REALLY is quite amazing for skin. If you have the bucks, I would shell out for that. You can get it at Sephora.

Okay, now that I know more about your skin, DEFINITELY invest in Bare Minerals. I have acne scars and red skin, and if I could pick anything that I would consider to be a miracle product, it would be Bare Minerals. I am from Canada (don’t have Macy’s here), but I know for sure they have it at Sephora if you have one nearby.

I would go with estee lauder doublewear (long lasting, good coverage). My friend has acne/acne scars, it does not react with her skin and gives her the coverage she needs. You can always thin it out with lotion, too so it’ll give you sheer-er coverage. Estee lauder also has good solid concealers that you can use to cover up acne scars.

@Valhalla: If bare minerals doesn’t break you out, that’s great. However, it is known to break many people out.

Bare Minerals and powder foundation has the tendency to absorb the sebum on your skin and while it looks nice and matte at first, your skin will think it is dry and therefore produce more sebum, which can clog up pores and mixed with bacteria, it’s a formula for acne and not a kind of foundation recommended for acne-prone skin. 

It’s also not a photo-friendly foundation, and meant for everyday usage. Liquid foundations that are oil-free (clinique has a few options) is probably your best bet. 

One trick I was taught for shopping for personal foundation is to try to match the foundation first, and walk outside for a few hours in other lightings and look at yourself under natural light as well.  If it still looks great, then walk back and purchase the foundation.

I hope you find the right one and look fabulous on your E-Pics! best of luck~

I only use Clinique makeup/face soap/products! I have been using it since 9th grade and it is the only thing that keeps my face in check! Laughing

Love Clinique. For some people, they do cause break outs in the beginning I would say. I have used “perfect makeup” their foundation I think its called and love it.
