How to Choose the Right Foundation

Choosing the right foundation for your skin can mean the difference between a flawless base or a foundation faux pas. By following these tips for matching a foundation to your skin type, we guarantee your foundation will blend beautifully with your skin and look like you aren't wearing any makeup at all.

For those with oily skin, choose an oil-free liquid or a powder foundation. By doing so, excess oil will be absorbed and your makeup won't slide during the day. Keep shine-free by applying a foundation that has a matte finish.

Dry skin is best suited to a liquid, mousse or stick foundation as their consistencies add moisture to your skin. Avoid solely using a foundation powder as this will only emphasise any dry problem areas.

If you have dry skin on your cheeks but an oily T-zone, it can be tricky to find a perfect foundation. Get the best of both worlds by using a liquid and a powder. To keep shininess at bay, keep powder or blotting paper in your bag for touch ups throughout the day.

In-store we are often asked about the best foundation for sensitive skin. The Physician's Formula range consists of inexpensive foundations that provide adequate coverage and will avoid irritating your skin. Their range of makeup is fragrance-free, oil-free and dermatologist approved.
