One of the most common questions I get asked at the makeup counter when dealing with foundation is, “What’s the best one?”. The truth of the matter is there is no right answer to that. All foundations offer different benefits and all have different wearability, coverage and finishes. The important thing is how you want your skin to look once you apply your foundation. Here are some of the questions you should consider when choosing:
1. Skin type. What kind of skin do you have? Is it oily, dry, combo, etc.?
2. Coverage. Do you want your skin to look completely flawless, natural or somewhere in between?
3. Finish. Are you looking for a matte, natural or dewy finish?
4. Foundation type. Are you more comfortable with a powder, liquid or cream? But note, based on the questions above, you may not get the type you like. Don’t get too hung up on this one!!
If you take a moment to think about the answers, you will be better equipped with getting the foundation of your choice the next time you hit the makeup counter!
