I'm going to be having a chemical peel (TCA @ 35%) soon and I want to cover the redness once I've healed.
I have oily skin and am prone to acne.
I've already tried:
Jane Iredale - too white, and changed color.
Armani MSF - Great foundation but the color match wasn't quite perfect.
Almay Clear Complexion - Made me very oily, and the color wasn't quite perfect.

Any rec's for a very natural looking foundation? I'm not sure which looks more natural; powder or liquid. I love to get opinions and rec's.
Thanks so much!

I highly recommend mineral makeup--- it will help heal your skin and won't cause irritation. My fave brand is Alima (www.alimacosmetics.com). It's been very good to my skin, and the colors are all very skin true. HTH!

I'm not sure if the Alima will provide you with enough coverage if you are trying to cover serious redness. I recently tried their samples and I can easily say that I have never seen a more perfect/beautiful color match but the coverage was too light IMO and became patchy/seperated as I became oily. I'm thinking about ordering the full size and using it as a setting powder.
I wish I could recommend a foundation but I'm trying to find a decent one too Smile

avene has some cosmetic skincare products targeted for healing skin - be it from burns or peels Smile some are foundation and some are just color correctors.

read on newspaper last year that a lady had a very bad reaction after she piled foundation onto her skin within 24 hours of laser/chemical peel. she was suing the dermatologist so do be careful! test patch it first Smile

Lycogel foundation was originally formulated for burn victims & patients following cosmetic surgeries. It's suppose to be both cover & heal the skin. I wouldn't want to put any other kinds of foundation on an open wound, so as to avoid potential infection.

Please do use mineral makeup. Mineral makeup is recommended for use after many procedures.

wwww.valeriebeauty.com has a foundation called CD (cover deluxe) that gives excellent coverage.

Good luck with your peel! Smile

Thanks a lot everyone! I'll definitely look into mineral makeup and the lycogel.
