Makeup and Accutane
First of all, I hope you are gaining self-confidence as your complexion improves. I recommend a good moisturizer with an added sun protection before applying a mineral base make up. Also, if there is any pustules, try to avoid contaminating the area with your application of the makeup. At night, please remember to gently cleanse the area and apply a pH balance moisturizer that contain very long chain fatty acids and cholesterol esters. Niacinamides will also decrease erythema or the look of redness. Good luck, take care.

Accutane and makeup
It's fine to wear makeup while taking Accutane. The only thing I would say is to make sure you're using quality makeup!

Fine to wear makeup while on Accutane
Yes, you can absolutely wear makeup while on Accutane. Most of my Accutane patients do wear makeup- and they find that this helps cover up the redness you may also experience from the Accutane. Make sure to remember your moisturizer and sunscreen every day as well.
Best of luck!
