Acne cover
Rating:  
5 / 5
5 / 5
Pros: good colour, coverage, ease of use, great, lightweight
Cons: durability, expensive brushes
I have very serious acne and have done since I was 13. I have been wearing Bare minerals loose foundations for many years and I swear by it.
My skin is the worst of all skin types. Its oily most of the time, but on occasion it can be dry and flakey. My Acne is disgusting and literally all over my face, chest, arms, back and neck.
The foundation has many advantages for me. Don't get me wrong, its not perfect but its miles ahead of the others out there, especially liquids.
-Gives however much coverage you want. A light dusting for a quick trip to the shops or several layers for flawless prom makeup.
-It covers ANY redness easily with the thinnest of layers.
-Spots are easy to cover but you can still see the bumps underneath. More being applied can reduce the issues with smoothness but its something you have to just accept as impossible.
-So easy to apply and to get even coverage.
-The colours are natural and you don't get nasty neck lines or dodgy patches
-With a primer, concealer, and a setting spray, it can last 24 hours and look great!
-It can go a funny texture if you sweat a lot, but a quick touch up corrects instantly
-I used to wear for school and would be perfect until lunch, and a touchup would be required. (But most foundation does, especially on skin like mine.)
-If you have clear skin, this is literally the perfect foundation
-I have barely any money and it usually lasts me 1-2 months, and I wear a lot of it because of my awful skin. Its relatively cheap.
-The bare minerals brushes are much better, but others work well enough for me as I cannot afford to replace mine.
-The best thing of all, is it never makes my spots any worse, in fact, it often seems to help them.
-It feels like you aren't wearing foundation!
-Makes clear skin feel super smooth and silky. When my acne wasn't so bad, people used to stroke my face all the time because it was so soft
-As you may have guessed, my skin is super sensitive and this soothes it and never seems to cause a breakout (Not that I would be able to tell)
-The opening from the bottom solves all the earlier problems with not being able to get the last bits out. I usually collect a few at a time and then pour them all into one pot.

cover the bags? what can i use?
I use foundation to cover the bags at the moment , but because I have to put a lot, it tends to "crinkle" and make me look old - am i not moisturizing enough or what should i use? and i apply it with the small brush (full coverage).
Me and my mother both use the powder concealer to cover bags. Works like a treat and you shouldn't have to use as much, but if you still have issues, have a go with the Mineral Veil over the top. With the 'crinkle'ing, Often just lightly rubbing with your fingertips flattens it out of creases, but otherwise, just work the makeup around with a brush. I use a small blending brush or an eyeshadow brush for right in the eye.
