Best Makeup for Acne Skin


Acne is a common problem that affects not only teenagers, but also women in the forties and steals their self-confidence. Adult acne can be due to hormonal imbalance, or a tendency of oily skin. No matter what reason, acne is always a source of embarrassment for many. Correct makeup and proper skincare is the only solution to this. Follow some makeup tips and acne can be manageable without chagrin.

  • Acne is spread by touching the affected area with unclean objects or hands. Make sure that your brushes are properly and hygienically maintained. Also clean your hands before touching your acne. Acne can be triggered by a single careless touch of unclean hands or brushes. Also it's important not to squeeze the acne. That can result in a breakout that will worsen the situation.

  • Washing the face twice a day and before any makeup can also help curb the acne. Before applying the makeup, apply the anti-acne products; make sure that the skin is dry before you apply the makeup.

  • Begin with a concealer. A green toned concealer can hide the ruddiness of the skin and be a contrast to the red color that occurs in acne. The basic job of a concealer is to hide the flaws and match them with the color of your skin that evens out the complexion. Using a cream to powder foundation can even out your skin tone, without making it oily. A sponge should be used to apply the foundation. Airbrush method of applying makeup can also work amazingly, without harming your skin. It covers your skin with a thin layer of foundation, contrary to heavy layers and covers the skin evenly. While choosing the correct foundation and concealer; make sure that your product has a label of 'non-comedogenic' and 'non-acnegenic'. They are a great option when it comes to concealing your acne without causing skin irritation and other problems.

  • Opt for colors that are not too pink or red, bring out the ruddiness that you are trying hard to conceal. Colors that are a tone darker than your skin can be great blushes, making you look correct and elegant. Powder blushers can go a long way in concealing your acne and bringing out a natural color on your cheeks. Make sure that you use good quality and brand that won't trigger irritation on your skin post application.

  • Experimenting with eye-shadows can deflect the attention from the acne to the eyes. Using smoky colors like blacks, grays and rich browns on a fair skin can be a perfect alternative for a party or a dinner. Contrary, you can go in for turquoises, lilacs, fuchsias, plums and deep purples for the day and dazzle the onlookers. Make sure that you do not forget to use eye-liner and mascara. They complete the eye-makeup. Black mascara can go lengths in defining your eyes, so can an eye-liner. Make sure that you match your liner and mascara, or at least don't go overboard by using a silver eye-liner and black mascara. If you are wary of using colored mascaras, then opt for colorless mascara. It can do the same job as the colored ones without making you conscious.

  • Good lip makeup can also cause a stir. Use deep colors like coffee, chocolate brown, plums, deep wine, maroons that will look great for your special evening. Colors like medium browns, deep pinks and rose colors can work perfectly for daytime use.

Acne is not such a major problem, if you take correct care of your skin. And with makeup you can hide your acne and get flwless skin. Don't let it mar your self confidence and you will be a rock-star diva.
