Umm it could be acne
Not to reiterate what you most likely already know but you should be taking your make up off at night and washing your face, cleaning your sheets and pillow cases
Get a face cleaner and start using it everyday

I've stopped wearing foundation full face and I've gotta say I've never had less pimples in my life
I've never had acne just pimples here and there but doing that I'm like completely clear

Try washing your face more often

It might not be acne, but something that happens from not washing your face daily and not washing your brushes. Start up a skin care routine and keep it, even of you're dead tired! Also, wash your brushes more often. And maybe even wear less foundation until the bumps go away. Try tinted moisturizer and apply with your fingers for now.

I have that problem too! I have tried washing my far more often and not wearing foundation all over, but that never worked. I have had this for 2 years now and what has worked best for me is every night (when I remember) I put 1 pump of simple foaming cleanser on my face and using a cleansing sponge to rub it in and also gently exfoliate. After that my skin feels firmer and tighter, then once a week I use simple oil balancing exfoliating wash. After about 2 months of doing this my bumps reduced to just partly on my jawline close to my ears either side, I also use baby oil to take off my makeup, because it hydrates my skin and beleive it or not it doesn't make your skin greasy at all! I just lather the baby oil on my face then wipe the baby oil off with cotton pads and I noticed that when before my skin was dry around where the bumps were, it's now balanced with the rest of my face and I have pretty normal skin now! I worked all this out myself, I wish I had beautylish back then to help me :)

Well the other thing you could try is my using the same products over and over
Just like medicine if you use it to much when you really need it it won't work as well or you'll need more of it
Sometimes it can be like that
I can tell when my face gets used to certain washes and routine it's good to switch it up and products

Also as I'm sure you know if you get pretty oily throughout the day or just oily the moisturizer could be affecting your skin as well
So try a few things and if it doesn't seem to go away I would go see a dermatologist then you can know for sure of its acne or a separate issue

In summer you will get oilier skin. Maybe start using a toner and lighter moisturiser. Just sounds like clogged pores.

Are you keeping your make-up brushes clean on a weekly basis?

It may be keratosis pilaris I have this, it is very common.

I have the same problem except on my forehead. What I do is wash my face every night and use a scrub brush, then I use a toner to get rid of the extra dirt, then I use moisturizer

It might not be acne, I had bumps around my nose that were really dry and under the skin for a few years and eventually I went to a dermatologist and found out it was eczema. So, wash your face each night and maybe even steam your face once a week (grab a bowl and a towel, put some hot water in the bowl, keep your face above the water, place the towel on your hair and allow the steam to clear your pores) and if worst comes to worst try to see a dermatologist. :)

If its what I think and the bumps are like small white spots but painful if you try to 'pop' them then they are milia spots. Google it. There are descriptions of them and ways to help get rid and prevent further flare ups x

I agree with Natalie C. It sounds like Keratosis Pilaris to me too, I have it as well, Google it, its not acne, just a common hereditary skin condition. I had it really bad on my cheeks when I was younger. I only have it on the backs of my arms now, as you age, it gets better & gently exfoliating with an apricot scrub really helps, also a toner with Salicylic Acid in it and moisture all seem to help! ;)
