Most Recommended Best Concealer and Foundation for Acne-Prone Skin

A few months ago, I asked my Instagram followers for recommendations on the best concealer and foundation for acne-prone skin. Lots of responses poured in! I haven’t used foundation or concealer since high school due to my acne-prone skin. It would feel so heavy and caked on but that may be because it was the cheap Wet & Wild brand.  Now that I’ve entered 40, I’m more confident than ever but still have red and brown spots from old acne scars that I want to conceal while out and about.

I’ve compiled the most recommended concealer and foundation from my community and you can read until the end to see what I ended up buying!
