While wearing makeup can certainly help you achieve that perfect, flawless base and hide the appearance of breakouts, you definitely don’t want your cosmetic products to cause them, either. Makeup products should cover up acne and not make it worse! Since fungal acne sufferers tend to have oilier skin generally, we focused on products that are mattifying and help control shine and excess oil. All these products are fungal acne safe – they do not contain any ingredients that can trigger fungal acne. All products mentioned are also glycerin-free.
Poresaver Matte Makeup Primer
Using a primer is an essential step in makeup application, especially if you have oily skin! A primer helps your makeup stay put and should help smooth the skin’s surface for better makeup application.
When it comes to primers, our top pick is Poresaver Matte Makeup Primer by Dermablend. Formulated with only six ingredients, this is the ultimate mattifying primer for oily skin. It instantly mattifies the skin without drying and blurs pores without clogging. It creates a perfect canvas for flawless makeup application. According to Dermablend’s website, it can even extend makeup wear for 24 hours!

Best applied with fingers. Apply a tiny amount and gently tap it into your skin with your finger. Since this product is highly pigmented, we recommend not to use it under the eyes. A little bit goes a long way, so use it sparingly! The consensus is that this product tends to oxidize, so make sure to test it first, or go with one shade lighter.

A top-notch setting powder is essential to help your makeup last all day, especially in the summer. Using a setting powder can help extend your makeup’s longevity by 2-3 times!
By Terry’s Hyaluronic Tinted Hydra-Powder Tinted Face Setting Powder is our top pick because it does all the things a setting powder should do and has the added benefit of containing hyaluronic acid. It minimizes the appearance of pores, blurs minor imperfections, and fills in fine lines. Hyaluronic acid is the active ingredient that helps moisturize the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also has eight shades to suit every skin tone.
