Foundations for oily/acne prone skin

Someone asked, What Foundation is good for oily/acne prone skin???

     I can say by experience that these brands work great for that, Laura Mercier's Oil Free Liquid Foundation, known for a matte finish and wont clog up your pores, MAC Studio Tech Foundation gives you a lot of coverage and has a matte finish. They are both hypoallergenic foundations as well, so they are good even for sensitive skin. Revlon Color Stay is more affordable and is also know to work very well.

ALSO... avoid breaking out by washing your face, even tho you wash your face every morning and night you may be breaking out because your not removing your makeup correctly. You can wash your face a couple times and still have make up left in your pores (this is why most people break out). I would suggest that you use a makeup remover, my favorite are MAC wipes, they are gentle, smell great, and break everything down. After you remove your makeup you then would wash your face, use a toner, and then use an oil free moisturizer, oil free moisturizers can help control the oils on your face.
