Foundation is undoubtedly the most important part of everyone’s daily makeup routine. It ensures a smooth base for your eye makeup, blush, and highlighter. Unfortunately, foundation also has a bad reputation for messing up with people’s skin and causing acne. However, it is possible that the product is not the one responsible for the breakouts. If you are getting zits from regular foundation use, there is a possibility that you are committing one or more of these makeup mistakes.
It is easy to blame a myriad of skin problems on your foundation. If you have sensitive skin, it is important to choose a product that will be gentle on your face. Otherwise, it is time to take a step back and consider whether you are making some major foundation mistakes in your own makeup routine.
#1. Using the wrong foundation formula
Clogged pores always lead to pimples and acne breakouts. Although most foundation formulas are designed to be easy on the skin, sensitive skin need extra care. If your current product is causing zits, look for a foundation that is labelled as hypoallergenic or non-comedogenic.
#2. Using your fingers to apply makeup
Sure, you always wash your hands before putting on makeup. Nevertheless, experts say that your fingers can still carry germs that could irritate your skin. It would be best to use brushes or sponges to apply foundation, as long as you remember to clean those as well.
#3. Not cleaning your brushes and sponges
Some people have good reason for refusing to share their makeup brushes. These tools can be a breeding ground for bacteria if they aren’t cleaned on a regular basis. Make sure to wash your brushes and sponges every two weeks.
#4. Using too much powder
The easiest way to deal with oily skin is to dab on some powder. Unfortunately, this is also one of the huge foundation mistakes that leads to clogged pores.
The best option for oily skin is to use a mattifying setting spray after your foundation. You can then use translucent powder for later touch-ups.
#5. Skipping the primer
Primers can do more than just prolong your makeup’s life. They can also act as a barrier between your skin and your foundation, protecting you from clogged pores. If you are still unconvinced about investing in a primer, make sure to prep your skin properly before applying makeup. It is best to moisturize prior to foundation application.
