Best foundations for different skin types

Best foundations for different skin types

It has taken me a couples of years to truly understand my skin type and what’s best for it. I used to think that I had dry skin but I realised that it was the products that I used that caused my skin to become dry and that In reality I actually had normal skin. However In extremely hot weather conditions I usually end up with oily skin, so every season I have to switch up my routine to suit the weather. I also have to change my foundation but it’s hard to know which ones best for your skin type because the worst thing you could do is spend more than £25 on a foundation that is completely wrong for your skin. But that’s why I’m writing this blog post to make it easier for you!

DRY SKIN:

There are so many different issues when applying foundation to dry skin from a caked finish to flaking skin to emphasising patches of dryness and fine lines, put the wrong foundation on it, and you can end up making things look a whole lot worse – and end up feeling self-conscious while out and about as a result.

OILY SKIN:

The struggle is real when it comes to finding a foundation that controls excess oil and stays in place all day. To say that wearing foundation when you have an oily skin type is tough may be a massive understatement, but it’s not completely impossible. When you have oils skin it’s best to stick to matte foundations and one that are oil free.

I have recently been doing a bit of spring cleaning and in the last couple of weeks I have cleared out my my entire wardrobe and makeup draw ready for the summer! My mother calls me a hoarder which I think is nonsense. Every single year without fail she has managed to secretly get rid of a couple of my things and either thrown them away or given them to other people. However this year instead of waiting for her to do it again I decided that It would be best if I did it myself. I hate spring cleaning and I hate getting rid of things especially those that are sentimental to me and hold a lot of memories but sometimes it needs to be done in order to make space for new and exciting thing in our lives!

Now that I have thrown away all of my old and out of date beauty products I am going to need more makeup and skincare so what better place to go than the land of beauty bay!
