Top foundation techniques for camouflaging acne-prone skin

Top foundation techniques for camouflaging acne-prone skin
  • favoris

If you’re looking to disguise symptoms of acne, such as blemishes, redness and scarring, look no further! Take a look at our expert tips for achieving an even complexion.

Research suggests that an astonishing 85% of us will struggle with acne between the ages of 12 and 24. What’s more, up to a quarter of sufferers are left with some form of scarring.[1] While studies have yet to find evidence that suggests makeup causes acne[2], it’s important to pay attention to your foundation’s formula to avoid provoking redness and irritating skin.

Prepping acne-prone skin


First things first: it’s important to make sure skin has been thoroughly cleansed before applying foundation. Begin by washing your face with a targeted anti-acne cleanser, preferably one enriched with drying ingredients (‘astringents’), such as salicylic acid.
A mattifying primer will help reduce the appearance of pores and prep your skin for foundation. Pat gently onto skin with clean hands, paying particular attention to your T-Zone.

Brushes, sponges, fingers: techniques for applying your foundation


When it comes to applying foundation to blemish-prone skin, try and establish what your main skin concern is. Opting for a powder formula with a rich, creamy texture will help disguise any bumps or unevenness while staying put all day. If you’re more concerned with a uniform finish - for example, to disguise patches of scarring or redness - consider using a brush to apply evenly across the face, taking care to blend out around the temples and jawline.

Skin that’s prone to acne tends to suffer from excessive oil production, which can result in skin appearing visibly shiny or greasy. Applying your foundation with a sponge will help the product penetrate the skin for an even, matte-look finish. If you prefer to use your fingers to blend out those hard-to-reach areas, make sure your hands are clean to avoid spreading bacteria or irritating existing blemishes.
