How to Pick the Right Foundations for Your Skin Type
To find the perfect foundation, you need a formula that enhances your complexion and solves your skin hang ups. Here’s our guide to the best foundations.
As the base of every beauty look, foundation is one of the key products in any girl’s makeup kit.
Sometimes the quest to find the perfect foundation can be a little overwhelming, with so many products on the market all claiming to suit a range of different skin types. We have rounded up the best foundations to suit every skin type.
If you have oily skin, the best way to control shine is with an oil-free foundation, so it’s best to avoid any formulas that are ‘dewy’ or ‘luminous’ in texture.
When applying your foundation, it’s a good idea to use a sponge or duo fibre foundation brush, so less product is applied but it’s blended seamlessly for a flawless finish. Plus, it stops oil transferring from your hands to your face.
If you have dry skin, it can be difficult to find a foundation that hydrates while still providing coverage and lasting all day without flaking.
When trying to find the perfect foundation, it’s best to look for liquid foundations that include ingredients that will hydrate your complexion, such as light reflective pigments.
If you have a tendency to suffer from breakouts, then it’s best to opt for a fuller coverage foundation to cover those red areas. Don’t be tempted to cover your entire face in full-coverage foundation though; it’s best to apply it to those areas with breakouts and then let your skin show to give you a more natural result.
Using mineral foundation is a trick makeup artists use to enhance skin that suffers from acne. Mineral foundations are often more comfortable to wear on the skin as they contain fewer chemicals, oils and other additives that can irritate sensitive skin or cause unnecessary breakouts.
When it comes to mature skin, you need a formula that leaves the skin even and glowing without emphasizing fine lines or wrinkles. Any formula that is too matte or full coverage will age the skin as it gives a flattening effect, so it’s best to use light-reflecting products with a dewy finish.
If your skin doesn’t fall into any of these categories, then it falls into the normal skin type. Normal skin is neither too dry nor too oily, with few blemishes or sensitivity. If you have normal skin, then there’s a whole host of foundations at your fingertips.
I hope y’all are doing fine. I will be back soon. See you then, Take care 😘😘
