Foundation: Getting it right

So many women (and men) find it difficult to find the right foundation for the their skin tone.  So before we get into how to get it right with you foundation, the first step is to know the type of skin you have? That is dry, oily,combination or normal skin.

  • Oily Skin – For this type of skin use foundation that is oil-free which controls oil and shine. Foundations with a matte or powder finish are usually the best.
  • Dry Skin – If you have dry skin, you need a foundation that has moisturizers in it. Dry skinned people have better results with a creamy foundation rather than a matte or powder finish makeup.
  • Combination Skin – If you have combination skin (this is dry skin but oily T-zone) then you need makeup that has moisturisers , but is also oil-free and controls shine in your oily spots.
  • Sensitive Skin – If you have sensitive skin you need to select a makeup especially for sensitive skin. Probably something that is oil-free, fragrance-free and allergy tested for skin irritancy. It is best to check makeup labels to be sure about these things before you purchase a foundation.

Once you have this part of the equation solved…you’re on your next step to getting the right foundation for your skin…
