Finding the perfect foundation for acne-prone skin can be difficult and sometimes tumultuous. But as long as us acne-prone people stick together, we can find non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic foundations that will not only stay matte on our oily spots but will help us to stay clear from any breakouts.
There are select foundations that are beautiful on the skin and will help you achieve a glowing and acne-free look! I have a great choice of both affordable drugstore foundations and luxury brands that are a bit more expensive but totally worth your time!

This foundation is honestly a godsend. At fourty-eight dollars it will last you several months and keep your oily skin at bay without making you break out. Free of sulfates, parabens, and fragrance, your skin will not only last all day but it will have the most beautiful and even finish. Everyone will be wondering where you got your new skin. Full coverage, no acne, lasts all day, what else could you want out of a foundation?

Forty-Nine dollars for a beautiful and radiant foundation. You can enjoy no acne while awaiting glowing skin all day long. Oil-free upon being free of many other ingredients including parabens, formaldehyde, phthalates, coal tar and fragrance. Honestly, if those ingredients are in other foundations, why have we waited so long to get clean ingredients that won’t clog our pores or possibly give us cancer.
The Nars foundation will feel weightless on your skin and like you are not even wearing anything, a great sign that what you have applied on your skin will not clog your pores and create zits.

I know what it is like to take off your makeup for the day and all of a sudden there are five more whiteheads that popped up out of nowhere. It is important to clean your face properly before and after application, clean your brushes at least once a week and stay true to a foundation that will not break you out after applying.
