Best Foundation for covering hormonal acne?

Hi all! I’m searching for a good foundation where a little goes a long way, in help with covering hormonal acne without looking too caked or sad. Please recommend your favorites!

Re: Best Foundation for covering hormonal acne?

Hi @lilzeppelin!


The most important step is to get your skincare products right.  I suffer from hormonal acne as well and getting prescribed medications helped clear most of it away!  I highly recommend talking to your dermatologist about it.


For foundation, you need to take in to consideration your skin type or your foundation won't look as good as it could be.

For oily skin like mine, Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation 7C2 Sienna (not this color) works well, but you can use a concealer to cover anything else that doesn't get covered.  Make sure the concealer color you get is the same color as your foundation.
