And don’t worry… I’ve done the hunting for you 😉
What does non-comedogenic mean?
When makeup is labelled non-comedogenic, you can trust that the formula won’t clog your pores. This makes it less likely to congest the skin and cause breakouts.
There are many factors that contribute to whether or not makeup will cause acne– it’s a case by case basis depending on your skin’s individual sensitivities. However, non-comedogenic foundation is a great place to start in finding a good match for picky skin.

One of my favorite lighter foundation products, the Hydrating Skin Tint from Neutrogena gives your skin a healthy, bouncy look with the hyaluronic acid formula that hydrates up to 24 hours! It’s got a thin, water gel consistency that offers light coverage, though can be built up to conceal dark spots or blemishes well.
This powder foundation defies the laws of powder foundation! It offers medium to full buildable coverage that lasts all day thanks to the primer-infused formula. It blends evenly for a semi-matte finish that gives decent oil control. Read my full e.l.f. Camo Powder Foundation review.

For oily skin types, nothing beats the classic Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation. It blurs pores and creates an even canvas for the rest of your makeup without clogging pores, and is fragrance free– a major plus for sensitive skin! With 40 shades, you’re bound to find a match that fits.
You’ll often hear me calling this the best drugstore foundation… because I genuinely believe it is. The L’Oreal Infallible Fresh Wear Foundation is great for all skin types, giving a very natural finish that’s not too matte or too radiant. It resists transfer and sweat, and I’ve worn it all day with hardly any fading, even without primer.
