Finding Your Perfect Foundation


There are so many makeup brands, and everyone of them claim you will love their foundation. Being a makeup artist I feel like I have tried them all. When I am helping someone find the best foundation there are four questions I ask them.

  1. What skin type do you have? Dry? Oily? Combination?
  2. What kind of coverage are you looking for? light? medium? Full?
  3. What finish do you prefer? Matte? Dewy?
  4. What do you use to apply your foundation?


These questions help me find the perfect match for my clients skin type. Next time you go shopping for a foundation, ask yourself these questions.

If you buy a foundation and after a week you are not getting the results you want. try this before you buy another foundation.  If you skin is dry but you want a full coverage foundation, you are going to need to up your skincare game. Full coverage can by drying, so you need to prep and hydrate your skin with moisturizer and maybe a primer. If you are oily you are going to most likely need to set with a powder or use a matte-fying primer.

Here are some of my favorite foundations.

Full coverage Foundations. Best for oil control



Medium- build able Foundations. Best for dry skin


You can always add concealer and a powder to achieve your desired coverage or finish.

I hope this helps your with our makeup shopping!
