There are a ton of formulas on the market when it comes to foundation. But which one is best for your skin type? One major complaint I hear from my clients is that their makeup either slides off or looks cakey. Well to start things off, you should always always always start with a fresh clean face. Next up, moisturize…even if you have oily skin. Moisturizing your skin replaces any moisture loss from your facial cleanser and water. I have oily skin and I swear by my Oil of Olay. I’ve used since I was a teenager and it’s never steered me wrong. Now that you have a clean canvas you can apply your foundation.
Tinted Moisturizer~ used on normal to dry skin. Great for skin with few blemishes because it only provides a sheer, light coverage
Liquid Foundation~ good for any type of skin depending on the formula. There’s oil-free, oil-based, waterproof, ect. You can build up to the coverage you need by applying one layer, allowing it to dry then, applying another layer.
Stick Foundations~ this type of foundation is a bit iffy for me. Some say it’s great for all skin types, others say, it’s too heavy. It does have a full coverage. It’s good if you’re wanting to cover scars and/or blemishes. It can however, increase your chances of breaking out.
