Hey Beauties, ever wonder how to choose the correct formula of foundation according to your skin type? Well read on...
Oily Skin: Women whose skin tends to get a little greasy should avoid oil-based foundations and stick to wet/dry mattifying powders that are on the thick side. These adhere to skin better than liquids, which can bond to oil and slide down your face...yuck lol.
example= Bobbi Brown illuminating finish powder compact foundation SPF
Dry Skin: If your skin is parched, use an oil based liquid foundation with emollients such as glycerin, lanolin, or ceramides. These moisturizing ingredients will keep your skin looking soft and supple.
example= Lancome Teint miracle
Combination Skin: Combination skin is tricky because your face is dry around the perimeter and oily in the T-zone. The trick: apply a moisturizing cream foundation along the outer part of your face, then blend it in toward your nose. Finish with a dusting of a translucent powder over your nose and forehead. It will set the cream and prevent it from migrating into any creases.
Normal Skin: If you want to cover blotchiness, use a cream foundation. (Laura Geller real deal foundation stick SPF) Otherwise, smooth on a tinted moisturizer, which will even out your tone and give you a natural look. Then use a dab of concealer to hide any minor discolorations.
example= miracle skin transformer SPF
hope this helps you Beauties =)
