TYPE­CAST­ING

Hair - - Need To Know -

Even the best foun­da­tion will be fu­tile if it’s not meant for your skin. Un­der­stand­ing your skin type is the first step in choos­ing the right prod­uct:

Oily:

Pow­der foun­da­tions keep oili­ness away and add a glow to the face. If you pre­fer liq­uids, look for a light­weight matte for­mula.

Dry:

You need even cov­er­age with a dose of mois­ture. A hy­drat­ing liq­uid foun­da­tion is most suit­able; if you are look­ing for some­thing lighter, try a mousse.

Com­bi­na­tion:

This skin type can be a bless­ing as well as a bane. Opt for a foun­da­tion that’s oil-free but one that mois­turises.

Sen­si­tive:

Choose a foun­da­tion ac­cord­ing to your skin type but make sure it’s suit­able for sen­si­tive skin. Try and do a patch test be­fore mak­ing a pur­chase.
