Acne prone gals....do you wear just concealer followed by powder?.....
 
My skin reacts VERY badly to foundation, I break out like crazy. Was wondering maybe if this was a better idea? Or should I use a tinted moisturizeR?

Ever try mineral makeup?

I use mineral makeup and it has never broke me out. It makes your face look smooth too, like you don't have acne at all. My favorite brand is youngblood mineral makeup, but there are many other good brands too.

Heh, sorry...my one line post wasn't all that informative. Just you gotta try mineral makeup, I absolutely adore it.

One tip I use is once I have brushed it lightly over my face, if there are any horrid spots I want to cover, I dip my finger in the makeup and get a tiny spec on it. Then press the finger to the spot. Then I smoosh my brush a tiny bit so that it is a bit firmer than normal and very lightly brush the makeup. It works every time. Those horrid zits that you know you shouldn't have picked at? Gone, without awful flakes to announce to the world that you are covering up a zit. It stays put and doesn't require any additional product.

Bare Essentials Mineral Make Up is available at Ulta Beauty Supply and probably most other beauty product stores. It is pretty expensive, though. Since it is shiny I use a transparent matte powder lightly over it. Shiny is not good on older women, I think.
