#2 Makeup Mistake: Choosing the wrong foundation TYPE

So, not only your colour should be right (previous post), but the type you choose must suit your skin tone. If the foundation is too thick: Your skin might break out! If the foundation’s too light: there’s no use!

Let’s categorize your skin type, with the suitable types of foundation:

DRY SKIN:

          You need moisturizing foundation (creates a light base)

          Liquid foundation is the answer ( has extra moisture)

          Tinted moisturizer is an option

NORMAL SKIN:

          Matte foundation.

COMBINATION SKIN:

          You need moisturizing foundation

          It must be OIL- FREE

          Can be liquid/creamy/powdery

OILY SKIN:

          You need a “ MATTE” Foundation

          Must be OIL-FREE- to reduce the “shine”

          Preferably liquid that dries into powder, but texture is thicker than moisturizing foundation

          CAN use powdery foundation, to absorb oil.

SENSTITIVE SKIN:

          Foundation – ( WITH NO PERFUME)

          Mineral makeup is the solution

ACNE PRONE SKIN:  Choose a medicinal or Oil- free foundation, or  Matte foundation. Don’t use heavy type, as it might aggravate your skin.

OLDER SKIN/PROBLEM SKIN : good to use creamy foundation for full coverage
