Full Coverage Foundation

Post by CiaE on 9th February 2011, 3:03 am

Rocking a twa the past 7 months have shown me that i really cant walk out the house with my face looking so awful.. i have acne and dark spots and scars that have been on my face for the past 3 years. To me it looks unsightly. I am now asking if anyone has tried a mineral foundation the provides full coverage? I feel like i wont get full coverage unless i really use a liquid which is almost a NO NO for me because of my acne and super oily skin. I feel like im at a stand still... Any suggestions?

BTW I have been using and tries almost everything for my scars ie: fade creams, lemon juice, biofrement Lemon peel etc
So i feel like foundation is the only way lol

I think the key to applying the powder foundation for coverage is to ensure the color matches your skin nicely. I know there are a couple of mineral powder lines that are geared toward women of color. I would Google to look them up. You can also check out Arbonne, tarte, Korres, Kiehls and Bare Essentials to see what they suggest when using powder foundation for full coverage.

I not only have current raised acne bumps I have hyperpigmentation. I apply my prescribed treatment, moisturizer then a foundation primer and cream foundation. I typically do not get the results I like with mineral powder foundation alone because it tends to one, not be an exact or very close match to my skin's complexion, and two, powder seems to cake up on the skin.

Thank you for the suggestions. Currently I do use acne medication that has been prescribed and Milk of Magnesia for my oily skin as a primer.
I have tried Bare Essentials and because the understones are yellow it matched horribly. I have a perfect match right now using B.L.a.C minerals makeup for WOC. Its fine its just that my Hyperpigmentation is so prevalent which makes the coverage hard to have that full effect.
What creme foundation do you use?

I use Black Opal in the oval shaped packages. I also use their full coverage foundation. It comes in a small round clear package. I also have MAC's Studio Tech.

Have you tried to dampen your brush with distilled water prior to picking up the powder? Using it wet may darken the color of the powder.

I am not sure. I think it will just intensify the color.

Hi ladies! I just want to say to you both that I don't wear makeup often, but when I do I feel like it contributes to my skin going in the wrong direction. What I have done to reduce the amount of dark spots and acne on my skin (Face, neck, chest, and back) is use simply black soap and small amounts of shea butter to keep from feeling oily.It usually doesnt look oily but if I use too much I can feel it more than I can see it. Try taking a break from makeup and your prescribed medications and use something more natural. I was prescribed medications too but all of them would become uneffective after a certain amount of time. If you're interested I order from butters-n-bars.com. Great site for natural hair and skin care!

I definitely agree with you about natural products. I love the OCM and using either grapeseed oil or jojoba oil to moisturize. Unfortunately, those stopped working. I had cystic acne. It is thought to be caused by bacteria. Without prescription medication, it may never heal. I used the OCM and many over the counter products for a few weeks before resorting to a dermatologist. I plan to go back to the OCM once my acne clears. Should the acne get severe again, I will use my prescribed medications.
