Foundation-need help!!!!

I'm a teenager and have acne bumbs on my forehead and lots of red bumbs and other gross stuff in the corner of my nose and on my chin and need to wear foundation to at least look a little bit presentable. The problem is as the foundation hides the redness it kinda stands out on my zits on my forehead and makes them look really weird and it kinda builds up and flakes around my nose. It's kinda hard to explain but basically it just doesn't look naturally. Any recomendations on foundation that won't "gather" around my zits and make them stand out more or a different way to put it on or something? Please I need some help!!

what about the tinted acne medications? i don't know how well they do at clearing things up, or hiding them, because they didn't exist when i was a teenager.

other than that, i'd say use a concealer that matches your skin colour EXACTLY. don't use a creamy formula, the MAC concealer that comes in a pot applied with a pointed brush about 5 mm wide [get one at an art supply store instead of buying "makeup brush" - buy the type made for oil paints] will work best.

dab it on carefully with the brush and build it up as you need it. don't try to hide everything or it will look cake-y. blend it gently with a small pointed sponge and lightly dust with translucent powder to set.

hope this helps!

Where do you get the MAC concealer at? And do you get the tinted acne medication by a prescription? I'v never tried either one of them before but might give them a try. Thanks so much!

tinted acne medications are available at any drugstore. you'll find them right next to Clearasill and Persagel.

but i honestly don't know how good they are. sorry!

MAC is available at selected department stores and stand-alone stores around the world, or through their website at:


www.maccosmetics.com


there is a store finder on the site so that you can find the one closest to you.

since you're a student, i should warn you that it's a bit more expensive than other stuff, but a little pot of concealer lasts a year for me - and i have a LOT of broken capillaries and brown patches to hide on my face.

if you go to the MAC counter or store yourself it will be easier for them to match your skin *and* show you how to use the concealer to hide the zits!

whatever you do, DON'T let them pressure you into buying their brushes or sponges - you can get cheaper ones at an art supply store [or even Michaels Craft Store!] and cheaper sponges at the drugstore. buy a round one and cut it into 6 pieces like a pie - that's what i do!

good luck!

When I was a teenager I learned a good makeup tip for pimples. Since they are red based if you use a green conceler (I know you can get them at Merle Norman) that cancels out the redness. It really does concel great!
