Foundation 101—> Part 2

Some of you have been looking forward to FOUNDATION part 2…After showing you the different types of foundations and powders, I will give you my best advices as far as which one you need to use.

Oily Skin:  I usually recommend using a foundation that will not make your face look too shiny.

  • Product 1: MAC water based foundation select spf 15 liquid.
  • Coverage: Medium coverage with Matte finish
  • Extra: The best thing you can use to touch up your makeup if you have oily skin is a blot powder. I strongly recommend you get one! 

  • Product 2: If you are not a big fan of liquid foundation, you can use MAC studio fix powder.
  • Coverage: Medium to full coverage (if you want less coverage apply it with a big face powder brush instead of the sponge)
  • Extra: You will still need to buy a blot powder for touch-ups. 

  •  Product 3: Face and body foundation!!! Yes you can use it on your body too!Coverage: low natural coverage 

  • Note: DO NOT USE THE STUDIO FIX POWDER FOR PICTURES! YOU MAY LOOK LIKE A GHOST AS IT REFLECTS TOO MUCH LIGHT ON THE CAMERA. Use the liquid if you think you will be taking pictures. 

Combination Skin: You can basically use any type of foundation. It depends of the finish and coverage you are looking for. I am listing my favorite products for this skin type. 

  • Product 1: Mineralize satin finish SPF 15 liquid. The micro-minerals make the skin look flawless!
  • Coverage: low to medium (buildable)
  • Extra: Use the mineralized powder (matte on top)

If you have combination skin but your nose tends to be a little oily sometimes, do not apply the liquid on your T-zone (forehead, nose and chin).  

  • Product 2: Studio fix powder (see above) This the best powder for everyday use. 

  • Product 3: Studio Tech or the stick foundation. They both look great on pictures!
  • Coverage: Medium to full with a powder matte finish.  

Dry Skin: The best foundation for dry skin is actually from BOBBI BROWN!!! 

  • Product 1: EXTRA SPF 25 Tinted Moisturizing balm.
  • Coverage: Low to mediumThe only bad thing about this is that it does not come in darker shades…

  • Product 2: MAC Select Moistureblend foundation. Comes in darker shades!!!Coverage: Medium buildable coverage with a silky feel.
