Finding the perfect foundation for your skin type can be difficult. You can't just use any foundation and assume that it will look great, just like you can't assume any skincare product will work. If you're on the hunt for the perfect foundation, search no more! Here's a list of the best foundations for dry, oily, combination and sensitive skin types!
Dry Skin: Ladies and gentlemen with flaky skin understand the struggle of trying to blend liquid foundation. It just sits there and clumps to dry patches, making it appear unnatural. These three liquid foundations work to keep skin hydrated so the application processes is less stressful.
- Maybelline FIT ME! Dewy + Smooth Foundation, $4.99
- TARTE Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15, $39
- NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, $45
Oily Skin: Oily skin is a whole different ball game. Your foundation looks great... for about an hour before it starts melting off your face. You also have to worry about getting good coverage without clogging pores. These foundations work to keep skin matte and clear. (Pro tip: Keep blotting papers in your purse!)
