Healing Makeup

Good-bye irritation and breakouts, hello healing makeup.

Written by Carlyn

Anyone who struggles with acne and breakouts will understand THE repetitive (and annoying!) cycle:

  1. A pimple is born.
  2. Concealer makeup is put onto the pimple for coverage.
  3. The pimple gets larger, more swollen, and much more red. Ugh.
  4. More concealer is applied to cover the now-angry pimple.
  5. Repeat.

This cycle has haunted me for way too long in the past.

As soon as my skin began to clear up, I made a vow to only use makeup products that helped my skin while covering my imperfections. Check out my list for go-to everyday makeup products that help my skin—not hurt it!

1. August and MonroeBlemish camouflage stick
When I first heard about this product, I thought it was too good to be true. A 3-in-1 treatment that primes, conceals AND heals blemishes all in one product?! There’s no way. This concealing stick is revolutionary. It even uses colour-changing technology that utilizes pigment bursting beads to best match the pigment of your skin. I mean, COME ON!

2. ColorescienceSunforgettable Enviroscreen™ Protection Body Shield SPF 50 Bronze
My fellow pale friends! This one’s for us. I love the amazing bronze tint that this product gives my skin. Plus, it uses 100% mineral protection from environmental aggressors such as UVA/UVB, pollution, blue light, and infrared radiation.

3. Bare MineralsBlemish Rescue™ Skin Clearing Loose Powder Foundation
Have you ever heard of a powder WITH acne-fighting ingredients? Not me! I ran to my computer to order this one; a full-coverage loose mineral foundation WITH salicylic acid. I’ll say that again. A FULL-COVERAGE LOOSE MINERAL FOUNDATION WITH SALICYLIC ACID.

4. IT CosmeticsYour Skin but Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+
This product just might be my favourite. An absolute community staple and the winner of like a hundred awards, this product is packed with the good stuff. It really does have a flawless application—no cracks or creases on my skin—and it uses ingredients such as collagen, niacin and peptides to provide anti-aging results. Oh! I can’t forget to mention the good ol’ sun protection aspect as well.

5. SunBumTinted SPF 15 Lip Balm
This lip balm fights both dry lips and the sun, while leaving a beautiful blush colour. A product you can always find in my purse!

6. Jones Road – Miracle Balm, All-Over Glow
When I’m going for a youthful, doll-esque cheek pop-of-colour-look. Infused with healing properties from Vitamin E.

7. KosasRevealer Super Creamy + Brightening Concealer and Daytime Eye Cream
Say GOOOOD MORNING with this caffeine-infused under eye concealer. This makes me look like I got a couple more hours off shuteye.

8. Tatcha The Silk Powder Protective Setting Powder
Great for sweaty summer days by targeting shine, blurring pores and providing pollution and blue light shielding ingredients.

9. Well PeopleExpressionist Pro Mascara
I love the longevity and the non-flaking formula of this staple. With added ingredients such as castor and sunflower seed oil, lashes are conditioned and nourished with essential fatty acids. That’s some movie star sh*t.

10. RMS BeautyLuminizer
This glow is so delicate and natural and doesn’t look greasy. Coconut oil is used to nourish and illuminate the skin, producing that dewy, Insta-worthy texture.

It’s time to break up with our breakouts.
