Growing up I always loved playing with makeup. I remember when my mom,grandmothers or aunt’s would give me some of their old makeup to use. As I got older I learned more about what makeup suited me best. This of course took a lot of trial and error. One of the things that took some time to perfect was finding the right foundation that fit my skin type and my skin tone. So today, I am bringing you some tips on how to do just that.
Dry Skin: If you have dry skin, you want to choose a foundation that is hydrating. I recommend using one with a creamy consistency that will help moisturize your skin. If you’re looking for a great foundation to try Maybelline’s Fit Me Dewy & Smooth is perfect for dry skin. When applying your foundation using your fingers is best because it will help your skin absorb it better.
Oily Skin: Using foundations and powders that are oil-free are key for someone with oily skin. Mineral makeup is really good for oily skin as well as products that will make you your skin look matte. I have recently fell in love with Maybelline’s Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation. When I wear this I have no issues with oil throughout the day. It is a great drug store foundation! I apply my foundation with a beauty blender or a brush.
Combination: Determining if you are more oily or dry is best before determining what type of foundation you need. Cream to powder foundations work best for combination skin. Some great foundations to use are:
L’Oreal True Match Lumi
Revlon Colorstay Makeup For Combination/Oily Skin
