Anyone who’s suffered from acne as a teen or adult knows how stressful it can be to feel like everyone is staring at your skin. There’s nothing more annoying than waking up with a massive pimple on the face. And for anyone who’s attempted to cover up a breakout during the summer, you already know about the struggle that comes with applying concealer to oily, sweaty skin.
Makeup doesn’t have to be excessive on your skin: with good hygiene and oil-free products, you can hide your acne without clogging your pores. If you want to make your pimples and acne scars disappear, these tips will help you to solve this problem.
Acquire oil-free makeup
Cosmetics that do not clog pores are called noncomedogenic or non-acnegenic. The first ingredient in your makeup should be water. Opt for mineral-based cosmetics, which will absorb excess oil and hide redness without irritating your skin. Noncomedogenic makeup does not interfere with acne medication.
Clean and moisturize your skin
Make sure your skin is clean and moisturized.
Gently wash your face with warm water. Apply a sunscreen or a moisturizer-sunscreen combination for protection against the sun.
Sunscreen does not cause acne unless it contains harmful chemicals such as benzophenone.
Wait a few minutes to allow your skin to absorb the moisturizer, then use your fingers or a sponge to apply primer. Apply a primer to your skin to ensure the rest of your makeup goes on smooth and stays on all day. Sephora Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer. This is my all-time favourite face primer.

You can use a green concealer to diffuse pigmentation. Never apply green concealer after applying foundation.
Blot your base with a tissue
Absorb any excess of makeup by lightly pressing a tissue into your skin, allowing you to get a natural finish as possible.
With a brush, apply the liquid makeup in round, stippling motions so you can get coverage without wiping off the concealer you already applied.
Set your makeup
After waiting a few more minutes for your makeup to set itself, apply a pressed powder to ensure it stays put for the rest of the day. I give you a tip.
