Make-Up For Acne: Summer Series

We all need short-term make-up fixes - however good our preventative regime, everyone gets a blemish from time to time, usually when you need it least. Unfortunately some formulations can make breakouts more prevalent - so how do you stay covered but avoid feeding the acne flames?

These are my current go-tos for summer; a time when you want the least amount of product on your skin. I like to keep base super-light and real - Lancome’s Skin Feels Good is really just a light dewy wash that does a little evening out of skin. A damp Beauty Blender means I’m not ruffling up any dry areas or sunscreen. 

Strategic amping up of coverage can be done by using a teensy dab of Vichy Dermablend Liquid Foundation mixed in to the lighter base, to ensure a custom tone that can be used just where it’s needed. And then as I like to avoid powder, I tote around a foundation stick on the go so I can do pinpoint concealing to mask any redness or blemishes as the day goes on. 

I used:

Lancome Skin Feels Good - 010CPORCL
Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation  - Opal 15
Lancome Teint Idole - 005 Beige Ivoire
Nars Matte Complete Concealer - Custard
