I receive many questions when working with clients on their makeup routines, and the number one is "what kind of foundation should I be using?"
Choosing the right foundation is not always the easiest, but with this easy-to-follow guide, even the makeup novice should have no trouble deciding the perfect foundation to use. skinfo carries a variety of foundations, suitable for all skin types.
Dry to normal skin
If you have dry skin, choose a hydrating liquid or powder foundation. A creamy, rich, hydrating liquid or mouse foundation will deliver the hydration that your dry skin needs.

Oily to acneic skin
Choosing the correct foundation for your oily skin is the key to having a radiant complexion, and to help prevents break outs from happening. Choosing oil-free foundation will help absorb any excess oil that your skin produces giving your skin a beautiful, smooth, matte finish.
