Help finding a drugstore foundation for acne prone pale/olive toned skin

Hi everyone!

I'm trying to finally find a drugstore foundation that matches my skin tone and helps cover up my acne.

I have fair yellow/olive undertones - and constant acne :/

I tried Maybelline Fit Me matte and poreless and finally found a shade that's close to my skin tone - in the 10 years of wearing foundation this have never happened! The 120 classic ivory is the closest I've gotten but it's totally breaking me out and does not blend well on my forehead (where most of my acne is).

Most of my life I used L'Oreal mineral foundation but it always oxidizes looks too pink - the neutral shade washed my face out. I've only really used mineral foundations so I guess I don't know how to apply liquid foundations which may be part of my problem with the Fit Me.

Any advice on good drugstore foundations (and other products to help with the final touch) would be greatly appreciated - I'd like to finally be comfortable with my skin when I walk outside.

Here's a picture for reference - if you think I have a different skin tone or something please tell me!! I'm clueless when it comes to this stuff
