BEST CONCEALER AND FOUNDATION FOR EVERY SKIN TYPE
Your skin type determines how you care for your skin, so why choose your makeup any differently? Using the right base products can mean the difference between a face that holds up all day and concealer sliding off your face by noon. Keep these tips in mind next time you hit a make up shop to take the guesswork out of finding the right products for you.
DRY SKIN: As anyone who has ever applied powder foundation to dehydrated skin can attest, creamy, moisturizing formulas feel so much better on drier skin types. A tinted moisturizer like EVE LOM RADIANCE PERFECTED TINTED MOISTURIZER SPF 15, is ideal, as it adds an extra layer of moisture, while offering sheer coverage that won’t emphasize flakes or uneven texture. Multi use cream concealers like HOURGLASS HIDDEN CORRECTIVE CONCEALER or VINCHY CORRECTIVE FOUNDATION won’t cling to dry patches and can be used to cover blemishes and dark sports, as well as other imperfections.
SENSITIVE SKIN: Ingredients are the most important variable to consider when choosing makeup for sensitive skin, as many widely available products contain irritants like synthetic fragrance. The fewer ingredients the better. CHANEL SERUM FOUNDATION is formulated without parabens, sulfates, fragrance, phthalates or triclosan and is infused with nourishing argan oil to balance the skin. NAKED SKIN CREASELESS CONCEALER is excellent for all skin types, but its skin soothing properties make it especially suited to reactive complexions.
COMBINATION SKIN: Makeup suitable for combination skin is all about balance. You want to look for something that will both absorb excess oil and fend off dryness. A BB cream like MAC FACE & BODY FOUNDATION can benefit combination types because its nourishing properties regulate oil production while also hydrating the skin. The WEIGHTLESS NARS CONCEALER is perfect for combination skin because it goes on creamy but has a light, almost powdery feeling once applied.
OILY SKIN: Like combination skin, oily skin types also need balance, Look for fine concealer like BOBBI BROWN OIL FREE FOUNDATION, they work to absorb oil without drying which can send oil production into overdrive. INFALLIBLE 24HRS MATTE SHINE PROOF FOUNDATION performs exactly as it claims, coating skin in medium coverage with a semi matte finish that minimizes the look of pores and appears soft focus rather that dry and chalky. Also try a long wearing matte concealer like RADIANT CREAMY NARS for coverage that will stay put.
