  • Lets FACE the FACTS!

    1. WHAT IS YOUR SKIN TYPE?



    2. WHAT CONCEALER/FOUNDATION/POWDER DO YOU USE (past and present)?




    3. WHAT BRANDS MAKE YOU BREAK OUT?




    4. WHAT ANTI-ACNE MEDICINE DO YOU USE?



    Okay heres the reason for this thread. I really want to get foundation but I have no idea where to begin. I was thinking of trying MAC but the only problem is that I've heard that it causes breakouts. Plus I have to choose from the stick foundation to the liquid to the matte and for someone who doesn't really know much about makeup..it gets pretty frustrating. Anyhow here are my answers and maybe you can help me figure out what brand to try.
    1. medium combination-oily skin
    2. still searching
    3. In the past I've used revlon but then it started to flake when I
    started #4.
    4. Proactiv

    TIA!!

                      combination skin -> normal to dry. my nose peels easily!!


                      2. WHAT CONCEALER/FOUNDATION/POWDER DO YOU USE (past and present)?

                      Past
                      Concealer: Stick concealer from Body Shop
                      Foundation: Bourjois liquid foundation.

                      Current
                      Concealer: MAC
                      Foundation: MAC Select SPF 15, GA LSF
                      Powder: L'Oreal Translucide LP

                      I dun usually use foundation for normal days, they r more for my performances. Just concealer & go.



                      3. WHAT BRANDS MAKE YOU BREAK OUT?

                      So far none of the brands i tried has broke me out.


                      4. WHAT ANTI-ACNE MEDICINE DO YOU USE?

                      I dun use any. Just drink lots of water

                      as for foundation, u have to try it out on your own to determine which is best for u. i would suggest that u go for gel/water based ones & try to avoid stick foundation as they are more emollient based, this can break some out easily. unless u need really heavy coverage, otherwise liquid foundation or even tinted moisturiser is good enough. maybe u can try Fancl? my friend has sensitive skin & she's quite happy with using products from Fancl. HTH!~

                        Lots! Mostly are off the shelves brand. I broke out really badly after using Clean and Clear , Simple and cleansers with soap in it.
                        Clinique also broke me out as well.



                        4. WHAT ANTI-ACNE MEDICINE DO YOU USE?

                        Dalacin T

                        Previously I used Differin but I think my skin was getting immune to it so I had my derm change to something else.

                            1. WHAT IS YOUR SKIN TYPE?
                            Combination - I have a oily t-zone. Overall i would say my skin is alright except for the occassional outbreak after overindulgence from chocolates and fried food.


                            2. WHAT CONCEALER/FOUNDATION/POWDER DO YOU USE (past and present)?
                            I don't use foundation, only concealer - TBS Teatree Concealer stick. Sometimes I totally skip this. (laziness) I use a makeup-base instead. I find Shu Uemera's UV makeup base suitable for me. On better skin days, i use Px Vibrant before dusting loose powder Px Traceless over. I quite like Anna Sui's loose powder - lilac one #200 if i am not wrong.


                            3. WHAT BRANDS MAKE YOU BREAK OUT?
                            Overly oily ones. My breakouts are stress and self-induced.


                            4. WHAT ANTI-ACNE MEDICINE DO YOU USE?
                            Oxy 10 is fine for me. haha. or good old colgate !
