Tiffany asked: “I love your site! It is sooooo helpful! What foundation brand would you recommend to cover up acne and scars? (The heaviest and fullest coverage so that everything disappears!)”

Answer:- Thanks Tiffany! Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation is the latest full coverage foundation that I tried and liked. Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer and MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation are also two good choices with extremely heavy coverage.

One word about wearing full coverage foundation though – don’t, at least try not to do it on a daily basis. Why? Because slapping on heavy makeup can result in more clogged pores, more acne (your skin’s gotta breathe too girl!) and eventually turn into a viscous cycle. Plus full coverage foundations tend to look cakey and unnatural unless applied really skillfully. So instead of covering up bad skin with makeup, try to figure out what is causing your acne and work on fixing the problem itself.

  3. What’s the best daily foundation for ultimate coverage that won’t clog pores?

  4. Thanks for the help Phyllis! Im gonna have to work on making my condition better!

  5. Tiffany,

    You could also try using products from Covermark. http://www.covermark.com/
    Hope that helps. (:

  6. Does covermark really work?
    It seems to cheap and uknown to work

  7. Farrah,

    Covermark is actually pretty famous in Asia and a lot of makeup artists use it. I think the line that is sold there is slightly different thought. This is the Asian site for the brand (it’s still in English)


  8. Oh and I’ve tried their Bright Up Foundation which comes in a thin stick (I use it as a concealer). It does cover very well and barely cakes.

    Here’s more info about it:


  9. Hey Phyllis,

    so i checked out both of the websites, but i don’t know, the US website looks so ..fake.. I don’t know. it says the founders are the same and everything but the products: looks, names, product details, are all completely different from the japanese one. do you happen to know if they are legit? their prices are very admirable :P but since it’s for my skin, i want to be more careful, you know?

    Thanks!! <3 Jo

  10. Revlon Colorstay with Softflex has received great reviews on makeupalley.com and it has a high coverage. I’ve heard that MUFE, on the other hand, isn’t giving much coverage for those with acne and scars, etc. I can assure that Revlon Colorstay has good coverage, try to read the reviews on makeupalley.
