I dont want anything to cause my already bad skin to react, but i want some good coverage. I currently use the oil free clinque founation but finding its causing me to break out alot & especially on my cheeks.

Anyone suggest anything? Thanks!

Bobby brown is really good for spotty/oily skin. I use her foundation stick & it's really good. I'm impressed with all her stuff actually.

Thanks namechange. Might have a little look at BB then. Anyone else?

I can't recommend one sorry but I can say avoid mac and illamasqua, they both broke me out horribly.

Place marking here too as I'm in the same position as you op.

Have had a bit of luck with bare minerals but the coverage is a bit sheerer than I'd really like.

I use a nars Tinted moisturiser after a recommendation on a acne thread on here a few years ago. The illuminating one. This poster had been recommended it by her dermatologist I think.

Avoid the urban decay one, I had found a routine that worked really well for my skin, two days of using the ud foundation I'm covered in spots.
Vichy do a foundation but I found it used to transfer a lot but it was fantastic for my skin when it was at its worst.
