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 light-weight 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.
