Picking the right foundation is the number one topic my clients ask me about. Wearing the right foundation can make your makeup last longer and look better. There are so many choices out there and figuring out which one to use can be a pain in the butt, so here’s a few tips to help you choose the right type of foundation for your specific skin type.
First you need to determine your skin type. I have a previous post that will help you with that.
What’s your skin type?
Next, choose which type of foundation fits your skin type.
Look for a liquid, cream or mousse foundation that says “moisture-rich” or “hydrating”. They make these foundations with vitamin E, hyaluronic acid, glycerin and other moisturizing ingredients.
If you have oily skin pick up an absorbing oil powder. It will give your skin a matte finish and soak up extra oil. You can also look for a oil-free liquid foundation.
Combination skin is the most common skin type. Look for liquid foundations that claim that they’re “balancing”. These are formulated specifically for skin that’s both oily and dry.
My favorite foundation brands are Revlon Colorstay and Make Up For Ever HD foundation.
Hope this helped! Have fun foundation shopping!
