No. But make sure you get some that works well with your skin and also don't forget to take it off at night so your pores don't get clogged.

You need to be placing a barrier between your skin and the "beige paint". That way it doesn't sit directly on the skin-foundations can be drying. I would look for a moisturizing serum. Apply a couple of thin layers, and let it absorb for several minutes before applying foundation.

for me it does but i have sort of sensitive skin, but in all it does because if you use it a lot it will probably give you spots

No, not at all. Make sure to buy a foundation suitable for your skin type. If your skin is oily, stay away from heavy, creamy foundations.....choose something oil-free. Try a tinted moisturizer...they are light, sheer and feel great on the skin. They usually have an SPF which is very important. NARS and Laura Mercier make great tinted moisturizers.

No if you are using the proper one for your skin and applying it correctly! Also making sure you are washing your face every night.

I would make sure that you are using a water based foundation and its a added bonus if it has SPF in it.

Less is more to start off with foundation and add little by little for the desire payoff.
