How to Choose the Perfect Foundation for Your Skin Type: Acne-prone/ Dry/ Mature/ and Uneven Skin


Most individuals have a hard time picking the perfect foundation. Whether it is the formula, color or texture, it is one of the hardest yet most important makeup choice. Here are a few choices I recommend for various skin types.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

For acne prone skin:
Recommend: Neutrogena Skin Clearing Oil Free Makeup

Purpose: It is oil free so it won't clog pores and worsen acne. It also helps to conceal redness. I love this one especially because it is affordable and contains salicylic acid, one of the most effective pimple-fighting ingredient.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


For dry skin:
Recommend: NARS Sheer Glow Foundation

Purpose:
It has natural hydrating qualities that is weightless on the skin. Brightening properties also improve the sallow appearance of dry skin. The finish of this foundation gives a glowing radiance that is not shiny and always healthy.



-----------------------------------------------

For skin with fine lines:

Recommend: Estée Lauder Resilience Lift Extreme Ultra Firming Makeup SPF 15

Purpose: Heavy makeup make lines look deeper, so this is a lightweight formula made of soy. Soy helps to tighten lines that dwell around the eye and mouth area.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

For uneven skin:

Recommend: Chanel Mat Lumière Long-Lasting Soft Matte Makeup SPF 15

Purpose: Created with a matte base containing light reflecting molecules to camouflage those spots, uneven surfaces and sallo
wness. Definitely my lifesaver!

  3. Dear Shen,

    Studio fix is awesome too. I'm actually using it right now. It has super good coverage. The only concern I have is that in the middle of the day, your skin gets oily so I keep having to apply studio fix powder!

  4. I've tried the Revlon CoverStay and it's pretty good, but I think it kinnna broke me out, I'm not sure.

    Maybe it's because I applied it on a dirty face. I don't really know. I'm waiting for these bumps on my face to go away and try it again and see what happens, I'm not sure if I should return it now or keep it.

    Can you please help?

    I'm a beginner and I'm thinking about trying Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Liquid Foundation from maybelline or Neutrogena Skin Clearing Oil Free Makeup !

    Thanks !

  5. I have oily skin to.

    and my problem was .. I bought the Revlon ColorStay with SoftFlex .

    I got home a tried it right away without cleaning my face, and I sweat a lot and am very oily. So I already had my MaxFactor Pan Stik foundation on. Do you think that was why I broke out. And I use a sponge applicator, I used the same one to apply the Revlon Foundation, do you thin that was why . I rarely clean the sponge, I only have a few. :( :O

    Help ASAP !!

  6. @ TPMPBl,

    Definitely go for a mineral foundation. I have very acne prone skin and revlon colorstay did kind of broke me out. If you don't mind paying a few more dollars, Pur minerals or Bare Minerals are great. For a cheaper alternative, Loreal's mineral foundations are nice too. Hope it works!
