Acne Foundation Routine: How to Cover Acne and Scars with Makeup


For most of us, when facing major break outs and scaring on our face it’s hard to go in public makeup-free and for the beautiful Cassandra Bankson the same is true.  Lucky for us she faced her insecurities to show us how truly effective her acne foundation routine really is and how we can all look flawless even with acne.  Thank you Cassandra!!!

Here we go!

First thing she does, because she has extremely oily skin, she uses Smashbox antishine to stop the oil around the nose and t-zone.

Then use primer, she is using Hourglass Veil Primer and puts it all over her face.  She says it feels like velvet on her face.  She carries the product down her neck to cover the acne there as well.

Next she uses foundation, Makeup Forever HD (the 125 and 120).  Use 2 pumps and dot it all over face.  She uses her hands to apply for better coverage.  Blend it all together.  After using the 120 then uses the 125 around the edges of face and down neck.

Then use the Mac NC5 concealer, dot it on the problem areas then blend with finger.

Then she uses 2 powders.  Pat the lighter color on the inner triangle of face.  Tilt your head back to keep the powder on your face until you get it patted into the foundation.  Then take the Mac Studio Finish NC 30 around the outside of the face, neck, chest, temples, etc.

Then use Makeup Forever Microfinish Setting Powder to set the foundation and the powder.  It is ultra fine so it gets into all the spaces the other powders have missed.

Mac Fix Plus Spray comes last, hold about 16 inches from face, close your eyes and spray to set the entire face.  Let it dry before applying the rest of your makeup.

What a fantastic acne foundation routine.  It seems so simple!  There are no special artistic skill required.  You can do this yourself at home.  It doesn’t even take very long.
