Creating a natural makeup look for acne-prone skin

If you’re trying to improve your acne prone skin, the wait to see changes can be frustrating and seem endless. This is often made worse by a lack of confidence in your appearance when blemishes are at their worst. Whilst waiting for your skincare regime to take effect, it helps to know how to create a natural makeup look which won’t harm your skin, but will make you feel great...

If you have acne-prone skin your concealer or foundation of choice is crucial for creating a natural look. Heavy duty, long-wearing foundations are often great at concealing, but are noticeable on the skin and may cause clogged pores. To avoid visibility and detection, choosing a lightweight coverage is best, this can always be built up over problem areas if necessary.

Effaclar BB Blur is perfect for creating a flawless natural look. The whipped mousse consistency allows for effortless application whilst the velvety, matte finish looks natural whilst controlling oil and shine. The blur technology and BB pigments in the product visibly fades pores, fine lines and redness; which helps to create a flawless look with not much product.  Effaclar BB Blur contains active ingredients perlite and airlicium, which counters problems caused by humidity and shine. The ultra-light and soft consistency makes it easy to build up the product in areas where it is needed, without compromising the real-skin, natural look.

Setting your makeup:

Setting makeup with a powder will help to keep your natural look in place all day long. Vichy’s Dermablend Setting Powder is translucent, which is great for a natural look as it won’t affect the colour of your foundation or concealer, and will be undetectable on your skin. The setting powder also extends the wear of your makeup, even in extreme conditions, leaving your makeup perfectly intact throughout even the busiest of days. Vichy’s setting powder has been specifically formulated to conceal without irritating the skin, and the product is hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic, which means it won’t make acne-prone skin worse.

Simply dust the mineral powder over the BB Blur cream with a powder brush to finish your natural look.

Eye makeup:

When creating a natural look eye makeup should be kept to a minimum. However applying mascara will make lashes appear lengthened, fuller, and open up the eyes. A couple coats of L’Oréal Paris’ Volume Million Lashes will ensure you still maintain a natural look, whilst also emphasising and enhancing your eyes. For those who are self conscious of their acne-prone skin drawing attention to your eye area is a good move because this area often has very few blemishes.

Having great natural makeup, which compliments and respects your skin, is sure to improve your confidence whilst you are treating your blemishes!
