As a former acne sufferer, I understand. Constantly packing on layers of makeup to cover up the redness and bumps that come with acne. Unfortunately, most makeup products are the culprit of your persistent breakouts. This is because they contain comedogenic ingredients. Comedogenic means it is clogging the pores. Aka the formula for acne. Let's dive into fan favorite ACNE SAFE makeup options.
Lets list the products that tend to lay on the skin.
Starting off strong with foundations. Out of all products, foundation covers the most surface on your face. That being said, it is crucial to choose a non-comedogenic option with an acne prone skin type. Here are three AMAZING choices.
This foundation is a full coverage, creamy, buildable foundation. Leaving a buttery, long-lasting base to your glam. Not to mention, 100% acne safe!
This is a cult-favorite for a reason. The dewy glow that comes with this formula is truly unmatched.
The entire ILIA makeup line is conveniently high performance, and acne safe! Not only are all the ILIA products acne safe, but they are infused with skincare such as hyaluronic acid, squalane, and niacinamide to improve the skin’s texture and hydration overtime.
A medium coverage, super creamy concealer, eye cream, and spot treatment in one that visibly brightens and helps reveal better skin over time.
A multipurpose concealer that brightens, corrects, and perfects for up to 16 hours with a creamy medium-to-buildable coverage and natural, radiant finish.
A lightweight, hydrating concealer with cake-free, medium-to-full coverage that lasts while brightening skin with a radiant finish.
A super soft, sheer setting and smoothing powder baked with skin care that sweeps away shine (not glow), feels like nothing, but looks like everything.
An ultra-fine setting powder that blurs imperfections and visibly reduces shine. Sets into the skin with perfection.
A silky, do-it-all, talc-free loose setting powder to visibly smooth, blur, and control shine for a soft natural finish and all-day comfort.
This product is currently trending for a reason! Its creamy, buildable, anti-orange blend is swoon worthy.
Selena Gomez truly did her thing with this makeup line, considering everything from RARE BEAUTY is acne safe!
This stick is multi-purpose and genuinely looks amazing for all purposes. Contour, Eyeshadow, Lipstick… you name it. Creamy, very easily blendable, and long lasting!
A liquid highlighter wand that illuminates the face, won’t irritate your acne, and will bring out the most natural glow.
For the powder lovers, this one is one of the longest lasting, blinding and beautiful highlighters on the market.
FENTY BEAUTY KILOWATT HIGHLIGHTER
Rhianna ( a fellow skin-care geek) knew what she was doing with this product. Such a strong, yet natural highlighter. She is the main character! All while being acne safe.
A weightless, long-lasting liquid blush that blends and builds beautifully for a soft, healthy flush. Available in matte and dewy finishes.
A cream tint that melts into skin for lit-from-within color that stays flush all day
A water-based gel blush with a creamy, blendable formula that gives skin a healthy flush of seamless color.
A facial mist that helps protect from blue light while hydrating skin and setting makeup.
Oil-free, lightweight, hydrating setting spray to prime and set your makeup for up to 16 hours. A cult- favorite, rightfully so!
Morphe's air-powered Continuous Setting Mist delivers even application to set liquid or powder makeup with a radiant finish.
Investing in your makeup is investing in the improvement of your skin. As you can see, there are loads of acne safe makeup options to choose from! There is not a single comedogenic product on the market that performs better than a non-comedogenic “dupe” version! The true base of a good makeup look is prioritizing skincare and skin health!
