Adding wa­ter to spe­cialised com­pacts such as NARS All Day Lu­mi­nous Pow­der Foun­da­tion or Ur­ban De­cay Naked Skin Ul­tra Def­i­ni­tion Pow­der al­ters the mois­ture con­tent, en­abling per­son­alised cov­er­age and a smooth fin­ish re­gard­less of skin type.

“It’s more the ef­fect you would like to cre­ate that de­ter­mines whether the foun­da­tion should be used wet or dry,” says Jess Yung, na­tional make-up artist at Ur­ban De­cay. When used wet, cov­er­age is lighter, pro­vid­ing a per­fected, nat­u­ral skin ap­pear­ance, while dry de­liv­ers greater cov­er­age with a demi-matte fin­ish to fa­cil­i­tate fuss-free touch-ups around the clock.

Con­trary to con­ven­tional wis­dom, Iris Lau, train­ing man­ager at He­lena Ru­bin­stein, rec­om­mends users with oilier skin should use foun­da­tion wet, as it is long-last­ing. They should then ap­ply dry foun­da­tion only to the T-zone or cheek side to re­duce shine when do­ing re­touches. “Gen­tly tap on the skin to cre­ate a lighter, more matte fin­ish­ing,” says Yung.
