Do you keep your skin type in mind be­fore buy­ing the base for your makeup? That’s manda­tory to get a per­fect, flaw­less look. Here’s help:

OILY SKIN: Prod­ucts like mousse and two way cake are per­fect to get a matte fin­ish for oily skin. Mousse gives a feather light fin­ish. It’s a cream-based prod­uct that turns into pow­dery form when you evenly ap­ply it on the face. The two way cake is a quick wa­ter­proof base that of­fers the ad­van­tages of both foun­da­tion and pow­der in a sin­gle prod­uct. For a matte fin­ish, ap­ply it with a dry sponge and for a glossy touch, ap­ply with a damp sponge to get a per­fectly even com­plex­ion.

DRY SKIN: Switch your makeup from thick-lay­ered foun­da­tion to a lighter, tinted mois­turiser. Hav­ing a hint of colour, it works as a foun­da­tion and makes your skin look flaw­less with more opaque cov­er­age. This light­weight for­mula pro­vides a matte fin­ish and hy­drates the skin. Another mag­i­cal op­tion is souffle. It’s an air-whipped foun­da­tion that gives a flaw­less, silky and even- toned fin­ish.

NOR­MAL SKIN: This skin type has the most op­tions. Go with the latest in foun­da­tions avail­able in the mar­ket such as stu­dio fix, min­eral make up, mousse and souf­flé. Stu­dio fix is a com­bi­na­tion of pow­der and foun­da­tion that gives you a sheer and matte cov­er­age. It cre­ates a matte and vel­vety tex­ture with oil con­trol­ling ef­fect, that lets the base last long enough. It can be ap­plied with a brush, sponge or a pow­der puff. Min­eral makeup comes in both pow­der and liq­uid form. It can be easily ap­plied with a brush and puff and im­parts a seam­less cov­er­age with a ra­di­ant fin­ish.
