Our 5 Favorite Foundations for Every Skin TypeOctober 06, 2016
FOR OILY OR BLEMISHED SKIN: MAYBELLINE FIT ME MATTE+ PORELESS FOUNDATION
Who said foundation has to make your already oily skin look even oilier? This formula by Maybelline—with micro-powders—mattifies skin to minimize shine and blur the look of pores. What you’re left with is a natural-looking, seamless finish that’ll hide what you don’t want anyone to see (ahem, blemishes).
FOR DRY SKIN: GIORGIO ARMANI CREMA NUDA SUPREME GLOW REVIVING TINTED CREAM
There may have been a point in time when applying foundation onto dry skin was a surefire way to cause flaking and parched patches. But not anymore. Creamier bases with moisturizing formulas are widely available now, like this specially-blended foundation from Giorgio Armani boasting a hydrating formula with hyaluronic acid and mannose. Choose from six glow-enhancing shades for invisible correction.
FOR SENSITIVE SKIN: VICHY DERMAFINISH CORRECTIVE FLUID FOUNDATION
When you have sensitive skin, covering imperfections such as redness, acne marks, and dark spots can be an uphill battle. Make it a little easier with this sensitive skin-approved foundation formulated with soothing Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water. The lightweight blend offers total coverage and all-day moisture, all while respecting the needs of sensitive skin.
FOR MATURE & NORMAL SKIN: LANCÔME RÉNERGIE LIFT MAKEUP FOUNDATION
This lightweight, moisturizing fluid helps blur lines and wrinkles for up to 12 hours thanks to Micro-Lift technology and pure vitamin E. Your complexion will appear flawless and line-free. It’s not magic, but it sure seems like it.
THE ANTI-FOUNDATION: L’OREAL PARIS MAGIC NUDE LIQUID POWDER BARE SKIN PERFECTING MAKEUP SPF 18
We get it: Not all foundations feel light and airy on the skin. If you’re looking for some coverage without the makeup feel, this formula is the one for you. It starts as a liquid and transforms into a soft powder upon contact. Just give it a good shake and apply it onto your skin. Trust us when we say it’ll feel like you’re wearing nothing at all.
