    Tinted moisturiser or a bb cream.
    I mostly use Rimmel which you should be able to get these for less than $15

    It's not a foundation answer but might be helpful. I just discovered something that clears up my skin. May sound strange but here we go..

    So I wash my face with warm water and have a lemon cut into half ready (usually only use half a lemon). Then rub the lemon all over my face and leave it until it drys then wash with warm water done!

    The lemon will tingle when on the skin I assume that's it cleaning the pores.... Now I officially sound like a hippy but if it helps your daughter that's great.

    I would be a little worried about a foundation blocking pores and causing more pimples.

    Sorry not the answer you wanted.

    A tinted moisturiser or bb cream as others have said.

    I would also buy her a nice cleanser and moisturiser and make sure she uses both every night so her pimples don't get worse.

    Depending on how much you want to spend, I know arbonne have a skin care range suitable for young skin, but it would be a but more expensive than stuff from the supermarket. (The upshot being it has no nasties in it and it is not tested on animals)

    I love the Face of Australia tinted moisturiser for my breakout-prone skin. BB cream made me break out within a day of using it with 2 different brands that I tried so I avoid it like the plague.

    Choose a noncomedogenic product and it actually protects pores from being clogged with dirt and impurities.
    Revlon Colourstay is my fave. They have a specific blemish control concealer. But the foundation is good on its own to use as just a concealer or all over coverage.
