There are so many foundations on the market nowadays. Ranging from BB Creams to full coverage products, but which one is right for your skin type? If you have oily skin, you need something that will last, but if you are more on the dry side, you want something dewy. And what about those with acne or combination skin? There is an ideal foundation for you too. Whether you struggle with wrinkles, dry flakes, need full coverage, or just want a touch of tint, there are foundations you will be more than happy to use.
Oily skin is something that just never seems to go away. You can blot and powder all day long, and you still end up seeing that frustrating T-zone shine peeking through. But with the Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation (Shop here), the coverage is made to last. And with Rihanna’s massive range of 40 shades, not only will your soft matte finish stay beautiful and shine-free all day, but your color match will be perfect. On top of the lasting finish, your pores will look blurred, and the coverage will hide any imperfections without looking cakey. This foundation is oily skin’s new BFF.
For the other end of the spectrum, dry skin can also seem unbeatable. There are flakes and ashiness, and nothing ever seems to look dewy and fresh on the skin — Until now. With the Urban Decay Hydromaniac Glowy Tinted Hydrator Foundation (Shop here), you can finally have the natural skin look you want. It may seem like slim pickings with only 12 shades to choose from, but the medium coverage and radiant finish are very forgiving. This glowy foundation will overhaul your dry skin’s appearance with a mix of antioxidants and oils.
Then for you normal skin ladies, what a lucky bunch you are. You are probably free from suffering from severe dryness, oiliness, and maybe even breakouts. But if a little something to amp up your skin’s natural look sounds ideal, check out the award-winning IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ (Shop here). With amazing yet light coverage, good for your skin ingredients, and a nice high SPF, you’ll protect your skin while perfecting it. Feeling like you have no makeup on but still having a smooth complexion and natural coverage to count on is what we all want.
Combination skin may be one of the most difficult skin types to deal with. Your T-zone is shiny, but your jawline might be flaky, and you may even have some pigmentation issues or breakouts. So how do you find one product to cater to all your needs? It can be a battle without lots of trial and error, but fortunately for you, we did that part, and the Nars Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation (Shop here) is a winner. This 16-hour wear foundation comes in a vast 32 shades, is lightweight, and looks like skin, just better. And what’s so great is that this foundation is buildable, making it customizable to your skin’s beauty needs. Plus, the formula is oil-free and sweat-resistant to combat shininess and is made with amino acids to care for drier skin. So no matter if you woke up with your skin feeling tight or greasy, this Nars foundation will counteract whatever the issue is.
For those with acne-prone skin choosing the right makeup can be difficult. You want great coverage, but you also want your makeup to be breathable and not clog your already troubled pores. And thankfully, bareMinerals makes a few options that cater to those that are prone to breaking out. Their Original Powder Foundation with SPF 15 (Shop here) is a classic. With buildable coverage that is great at hiding redness, you will be confident in your skin in no time. And if your skin is on the oilier side, bareMinerals makes a matte version of their powder to battle those dreaded oils.
Those who are worried about aging may not want to reach for a matte or full coverage foundation. Many heavy products can gather in lines and exaggerate any wrinkles. So if you want coverage, a natural skin-like finish, and SPF protection, the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer (Shop here) is ideal. With a convenient squeeze tube and a hydrating and softening formula, you’ll have a youthful glow with just a little bit of blending. And if you want a little extra, pick me up for your skin. Their illuminating version adds just the right touch.
