Foundations For Every Skin Type
As much as it would be lovely to be Beyoncé who wakes up Flawless or the lady who looks perfect with no foundation, this may not be the case for every woman. For many, foundation is key!
Walking down a makeup aisle and not finding the foundation that matches your skin type can take its toll on the most patient person.
That’s why we’ve rounded up the best foundations for your skin type, be it oily, combination skin, super sensitive, or dry like the Sahara.
The issues when applying foundation to dry skin are multiple: from a caked finish to exacerbating flaking skin to emphasising patches of dryness and fine lines, put the wrong foundation on it, and you can end up making things look a whole lot worse – and end up feeling self-conscious while out and about.
The MAC’s Face and Body formula is conditioning and the finish is sheer but buildable for more coverage. It is ideal for holidays as its long-wearing and resistant to water.
Just because a foundation is labelled “safe for sensitive skin,” doesn’t mean it truly is. Product packaging is all about buzz words, but there are two that actually mean something to those with sensitive skin. Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic are two phrases to look out for on your next foundation hunt.
Looking for more variety of shade options? You really can’t go wrong with this Neutrogena foundation which is designed for sensitive or breakout-prone skin.
Unsurprisingly, the foundations out of this skincare line are packed with the best ingredients. Topping the list in Clarins anti-ageing formula is the firming camellia Sinensis leaf extract, and hydrating Argan oil to keep the product smooth over fine lines and wrinkles.
