It is extremely important to choose a foundation that balances the needs of your particular skin type and skin concerns. But not all faces are created equally. Just because a certain foundation looks great on your friend, sister or mother does not mean it will work for you. Unsure of where to start looking? Here is a rundown of the best foundation for your skin type.
Oily skin girls can struggle with foundations slipping and sliding all over the face. The naturally produced oil on our faces can actually break down the foundation formula, making it fade away or transfer easily. We recommend the Rimmel, London, Lasting Matte Foundation for a powder-like finish that controls shine.
Foundation over dry skin can flake and cling to dry patches around the nose, cheeks or mouth. A more dewy, healthy satin-finish foundation much like the Bourjois, Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue Foundation erases signs of fatigue and boosts skin radiance for a fresh-looking complexion.
Those with sensitive skin may find that foundation can cause irritation and further contribute to redness. The L’Oreal, True Match Liquid Foundation is a non-comedogenic formula that allows your skin to breathe while also offering natural coverage that feels like skin.
The lucky few who are blessed with a more normal skin type can typically choose foundations as they please. We suggest a lightweight liquid foundation that blurs pores for a smooth and seamless finish. The Maybelline, Fit Me Matte & Poreless Foundation is formulated with micro-powders to minimise the look of pores and a beautiful natural finish.
