  • Tinted moisturizers and tinted balms combine the benefits of a face cream with the skin-evening properties of a foundation. They’re a good choice for normal and normal to dry skin that needs minimal coverage.
  • Liquid and cream foundations are available in both moisturizing and oil-free formulas.  They are easy to blend and can go from medium to full-coverage depending on how much you apply. If you go for liquid, be sure to shake the bottle first to make sure heavier parts haven’t settled to the bottom.
  • Stick foundation is one of my favorite formulas because it’s portable and quick and easy to apply. A good choice for normal skin, this travel-friendly formula won’t ever spill and it can also be used to cover blemishes and scars.
  • Compact foundation, with its cream to powder formulation, is best for oily skin. To avoid looking cakey, look for one that’s not too powdery. Many compacts come with different sponges that allow you to control the amount of coverage you get.

Sensitive Skin/Acne Prone Skin

Powder is the ideal deal formula for sensitive and or acne prone skin because it cancels our discoloration and redness with out clog pore that can cause breakouts. Mineral makeup is almost always a great formula for this skin type as well  Also remember especially with sensitive skin a soothing and lush moisturizer with natural ingredients is essential to lessening irritation and prepping the skin.

Combination Skin

Oil-free and water based are the key ingredients to look for when shopping for the best combination skin makeup formula. BB creams are also a great alternative for great makeup application, however they tend not to match the skin shade perfectly and may pertain to a specific complexion issue.

Dry Skin

Always look for hydrating ingredients when shopping for dry formula foundation makeup. Using formulas with a luminous sheen  gives you a great glow while moisturizing the skin. Try using formulas with a more velvety finish and or cream to powder foundations for more versatility.  To make your cream to powder formaula more sheer take a makeup wedge and spray lightly with water before picking up the product. This trick will make the make up less dense and more natural looking.
