Choosing the right foundation for your skin type can be a pretty daunting task. Whatever your skin type and whatever your preference, there’s a foundation that’s perfect for everyone.
Dry skin – You’ll want something that won’t cling to the dry areas and will provide moisture and hydration. Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation does just that, while giving medium coverage and a dewy finish.
Oily skin – One of the biggest struggles with having oily skin is finding a foundation that won’t slide off within a few hours. L’Oreal Infallible 24hr Matte foundation prides itself on its mattifying and lasting powers.
Combination skin – Combination skin is a mix between dry and oily skin. Some patches may be dry, while others are oily, making it pretty hard to find a foundation that ticks all the boxes. Makeup Forever HD Foundation is oil-free and glides onto the skin with ease. It gives medium to full coverage and, as the name suggests, gives a HD effect, which is perfect for photos.
Sensitive skin – Clinique is a great brand for foundation if you have sensitive skin as all products are allergy-tested and 100% fragrance free. There are dozens of different Clinique foundations to choose from, depending on what you’re looking for. The Even Better foundation contains SPF15, helps to even skin-tone and has buildable coverage.
High coverage – Whether you want to cover spots and blemishes or just prefer full coverage, Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation is perfect for you. It has amazing staying power and gives amazing coverage. There are 38 different shades of the foundation, so there’s something to suit everyone.
Natural finish – If you’re looking for something more lightweight with less coverage, Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation is a very popular choice. It’s light on the skin and provides sheer coverage, while still having good lasting power.
