Acne Tips - How to Apply Makeup to Acne Prone Skin

If you are a woman you know how important it is sometimes for you to look just right and makeup can be part of that. However, if you have skin that is prone to acne outbreaks wearing makeup could be your worst enemy. You need the right kind of makeup so that it covers up any pimples that you might have and that also won't clog your pores. The wrong kind of makeup is only going to make the acne flare up even more. So, it can be challenging to try and find the right makeup and how to apply it properly as well. Below is a guideline to help you with this problem.

Before you go to apply your makeup it's a good idea to wet your face with some warm water so that the pores with open up so you can clean them. Then you should apply a very mild noncomedogenic cleanser to your face and do this with your fingertips and not a wash cloth. This will not clog your pores. Once you have the cleanser on your face, then you can take a clean wash cloth and massage the cleanser on your face. You should do this for about a minute. Then go ahead and rinse your face with some warm water. After that splash some cool water onto your face. This will help the pores on your face to close. Pat your face dry with a clean towel.

After you have washed your face you will need to put on some skin toner that is free of alcohol by using a cotton ball. Do this over the entire face and your neck. Toners clarify your pores and will remove any dirt the cleanser may have missed. The toners without alcohol allow the skin to be prepped for the makeup. If you use a toner with alcohol you will be stripping the skin of the necessary oils that it needs which in reality will make the pores make even more oil to try and make up for it.

Once you have finished with the toner you need to make sure that you have an oil free moisturizer that you can put on your face with your fingertips. This kind of moisturizer is not going to cause pimples like one that has oil in it. Make sure that you apply it to your entire face and use an eye cream around the areas of your eyes.

Now take an oil free foundation and put it onto your face with your fingers. Using your fingers to apply makeup is far better than using something else for those who are prone to acne because the sponges that are available tend to be able to spread bacteria that causes pimples. Make sure that you only put on a think layer of foundation you don't want to put too much on an area that might have some pimples because it will draw attention to that area.

When you apply a blush make sure that you use a makeup brush and sweep the brush onto the apples of the cheeks. However, if you happen to have some heavy acne on your cheeks, it's not advisable for you to use any blush since it will emphasize the pimples.

When using the eyeshadow make sure to use a small brush for this and put on as desired and liner if you like as well just making sure that the shadow does not go onto any pimples you might have near your eyes.

If you have a concealer then you should put that on any pimples that you might still be able to see even after the foundation has been put on. Make sure to get one that best matches the color of the foundation that you put on your face.

You can then add a finishing touch of a very light powder and spread that with a brush all over you face to help set your makeup. Your makeup if done in this manner should keep the pimples covered all day while giving your complexion a nice soft and matte look.
