right now I'm using Maybeline Dream Liquid Mousse airbrush finish. and over that I'm using cover girl trublend minerals(which is a powder).
at first I absolutely loved the mousse. I have used the powder before so I'm used to it. but now for some reason some days when I get out of school and look in the mirror, my foundation is almost completley off except in some small patches. and its mostly patchy on the sides of my cheeks. which is also where I have my acne. my acne has been bothering me a lot more than usual, so I don't know if the makeup is doing this because of my acne. to apply the mousse I first put it on the brush and spread it around my face, then I use my hands to rub it in. then obvs for the powder I use the brush.
has this ever happened to you before? do you think I should switch foundations? some days I put less foundation on becuase I don't want it to be very heavy, and it seems like its mostly those days where its all patchy. also, I have gym class so I don't know if this contributes to it at all. but usually right after gym it seems to be okay.
it was really, really bad today and I was so embarrased. I hope nobody noticed it too much. it looked like I didn't know how to evenly put makeup on :/
thanks in advance :)

That's because of the brand. You really need to invest in a better brand and not a drugstore one. Gym class and sweating will definitely take off a non reliable foundation. Spend a little bit more for your foundation. I use Studio Gear, its about $30 and works amazingly. It never comes off throughout the day (not even if I'm working out), and it goes on light and flawless. You also want to use a facial lotion to moisturize your skin. You really want to use the lotion right before putting on your foundation.
