Flawless Full Coverage Foundation | Acne, Redness, & Scarring

 Hey everyone, how are you? Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and not to crazy Black Friday (if you went out shopping!) 

I've had pretty bad breakouts lately, and I'm trying to get it under control, but not sure what is causing it. Because of this, I figured it would be the perfect time to show you my flawless full coverage foundation routine for acne, redness, and scarring.

Unfortunately, raised acne is near impossible to conceal, even though the redness is concealed. Fortunately, acne scarring (which is majority of my blemishes) and redness can be concealed well. 

When choosing a foundation, I go for something that is long lasting and can control oil throughout the day. For concealer, specifically for covering acne, I choose something with a sticky/drier formula. I find that these formulas usually stay on longer and won't melt off my face. To set everything in place, I like to use a powder that will mattify my face, yet not make my face look dried up. Below are my favorite picks right now that match the description above.

I used my Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Foundation in Light 44, Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Chantilly, MAC Studio Finish concealer in NC15, Becca Blotting Powder Perfector, and Skindinavia Bridal Makeup Finish Spray. These products work nicely together and don't look cakey, which can be an issue when doing full coverage on acne.

  1. Breakouts happen and they can be super frustrating....but it's nice to have makeup to help deal with them! Your foundation routine is fab :)

    1. Yes! Thank God for makeup. We can cover up anything haha

  2. Wow, great routine! I love how flawless your skin appears after your bases and concealer! In the past when I had bad breakouts I wasn't yet using much make up so a lot of pressed powder was all I was using but it was nowhere as good coverage as what you're doing! Do check out my blog, I'm holding a beauty giveaway!

    1. Thanks Sharlynn! I never use to use this type of makeup either, but realized I needed to cover it as it got out of hand. I will check it out!

  3. I've struggled with breakouts for years and years, and finding a fuller coverage foundation that doesn't look cakey can definitely be a challenge. The Kat von D. foundation really looks fabulous on you! :)
