Skincare-obsessed as we are here at Curology, we are always on the lookout for the best, breakout-free makeup. (Pro tip: is the ultimate tool for checking what makeup and skincare products might be working against you.)

One foundation we’ve found is safe for acne-prone skin is Fenty Beautys PRO FILT’R Soft Matte Longwear Foundation. A quick CosDNA analysis reveals that this formula is non-comedogenic. You should be on the lookout for non-comedogenic makeup because it generally won’t clog pores or contribute to the growth of acne-causing bacteria. Better yet, it comes in a range of 40 shades, offering the right color match for virtually everyone. It’s oil-free, with a soft matte finish, a texture that seems to work well for different skin types. And the coverage isn’t too heavy, so you can layer it for more coverage.

Skin tone comparison

It’s not every day that a makeup brand takes the diversity and individuality of different skin tones and types into consideration, but this foundation checks those two essential boxes. Remember to check your makeup’s ingredients on CosDNA before using, especially if you’re prone to acne or irritation, because a lot of products out there contain unnecessary if not harmful ingredients! As skincare experts, we’re a fan of any makeup made with safe ingredients that won’t irritate or breakout your skin—so stay tuned for more product reviews.
