If you been suffering from acne since your teens or maybe only in your adult years, you’re probably living in constant fear of a breakout before your big day. Oily skin also is an annoying issue. Well you can stop worrying (remember stress causes pimples), because here are some awesome makeup picks for your big day if you have temperamental skin. Get ready to update your makeup pouch with bridal makeup for acne prone skin that will keep your skin happy and healthy.
It’s smart to go in for a foundation that is mineral-based and/or oil-free so that it helps cover up spots along with combating them. When it comes to liquid foundations, you can’t go wrong with Neutrogena, since the brand is all about treating acne-prone skin gently, and it actually works. We also love Clinique as it is long-lasting and contains no ingredients that cause acne. Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Foundation is also a great buy as it contains ingredients like shea butter and primrose oil which are soothing for the skin and leaves it looking fresh.

If regular zits are something you struggle with then you would know just how important a good concealer is in covering it all up. You need one that is matte, oil-free and doesn’t leave the skin looking too cakey. That may sound like a lot to ask from a product as it also has to be good enough to cover up acne and its scars, but we found you some perfect picks. Also, it’s a good idea to snag a concealer with an SPF as that can help stop a spot from scarring. These finds will cover up any spotty problems and help you fake a flawless complexion throughout your functions.

When it comes to oily skin, setting powder is an absolute must-have to dust on, keep your base intact and help it last all day long. The problem with some powders is that they can make you look too made up thanks to that horrid white cast and can also trap the oils under your skin, which will clog your pores.
You need a natural-looking powder that is lightweight and offers a good amount of coverage without setting off your acne and we’ve picked out the best products that do just that.

A blusher is necessary is for the finishing touches to give you that irresistible glow. Look out for powder blushers that are non-comedogenic, which means they do not block pores. If you’re prone to zits on your cheeks it’s probably time you switched your blush for any one of these options.
If you’re looking for a non-powder blush then you can’t go wrong with Benetint by Benefit for a natural, rosy flush.

A Few Makeup Tips For Healthy Skin ( Especially For Acne-Prone Skin)
- Read the ingredients list before buying any cosmetics. Look out for terms like non-comedogenic, oil-free and sulfate-free as they are good signs that they won’t worsen your condition.
- If you need to use a lot of foundation or concealer for full coverage make sure to apply light layers and allow them to set before applying the next one. This will help avoid irritation and that horrible pancake-effect.
- Always, always remove make-up before you retire to bed. Always!
