What Is The Best Makeup Foundation For Your Skin?

By John Socratous

When it comes to buying the best makeup foundation for their make-up kit, most women are perplexed by the number of choices in the market. The best way to start selection one is to go for those products that are clearly marked for a specific skin group, like those foundations that are specifically marketed for dry, normal or oily skins. This is very important because if you choose a foundation that is not optimized for your skin, it will magnify your imperfections and flaws instead of hiding them! The next thing to consider is what type of coverage you are looking for; based on that you can choose the best makeup foundation for your use.

Tinted Moisturizer

These types of foundation provide the lightest coverage among all foundations found in the market. Tinted moisturizer foundations are basically light-weight moisturizer that has a hint of color. So if your skin is dry or normal and you need to hydrate it very often, then this is this type is the best makeup foundation you can buy. Those who are blessed with a very clear skin can also go for this foundation as this type of foundation will leave their face light and even-toned without becoming cakey or heavy.


Those who have oily skin should go for this type of foundation. It will absorb the excess oil that is bane for such skins all throughout the day; as a result the skin will not look either greasy or shiny. This is also great for those who are leading an active life as this type of foundation remain intact even in extreme weather conditions as well as sweating. They are also perfect for sensitive skin as most often they are free of oil, dyes, fragrance or preservative and made of natural minerals. So putting on this kind of foundation means no more irritation for those with sensitive skin. Moreover two minerals that fight inflammation, like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are present in such natural powdered makeup foundation. So if you have skin problems like rosacea or acne, use this foundation to get a calming effect on your skin.


A liquid foundation, to work best must be the one that is recommended for the skin type that the user has. The reason why it is preferred over powder foundation is because it spreads easily over the skin and the result is a natural cover. Some are matte in nature; hence perfect for oily skin as they absorb excess oil. For dry skin or those with normal skin the best makeup foundation in this category are those that leave a dewy finish due to their moisturizing properties. Liquid foundations that have salicylic acid as an ingredient should be the recommended liquid foundation for those with acne problems. Salicylic acid is one of the ingredients used in most OCT acne treatments and hence women who use it, treat their blemishes while they are putting on makeup!


If your skin has uneven tone and wide range of imperfections, then cream foundation is the best makeup foundation for you. It will hide those imperfections by providing full coverage and since most of the time they are oil-based, they fill your wrinkles and fine lines and will provide additional moisture to it. Your skin will not appear uneven or flaky; and those with problems like acne, birth marks, and uneven pigmentation, scarring or any other kind of discoloration, will love this foundation for its opaque coverage. Cream foundation provides a dewy, healthy finish and hence perfect for those with dull skin.
