One of the keys to a great makeup look is acing the base. So it goes without saying that you need to use the best liquid foundation for your needs and skin type. But how do you actually find the one? Read on to find out!
What type of foundation is best for your skin?
Quick answer: it’s personal.
There are so many factors to consider when buying and using a foundation. What’s your skin type like? Do you have clog-prone skin? What finish do you prefer? Do you like sheer or opaque foundations? How much are you willing to splurge on a single product?
The type of foundation matters too, of course! You may prefer a cream because you have dry skin. Or perhaps you have dry skin so you’d like a powder. But it’s no secret that liquid foundations are more popular and more widely available.
It would help to make a list of the things you’re looking for in a foundation. If you’re an oily-skinned girl, check out our guide to the best foundations for your skin type. For my fellow dry-skinned girls, here are foundations that work great for us.
Which skin is suitable for liquid foundation?
Any skin type can use a liquid foundation! It’s just a matter of finding the right formula for you. Someone with dry skin may prefer something that has a more radiant finish while a person with oily skin may want to keep it matte.
Can you use liquid foundation everyday?
I know while were growing up we were taught that makeup is bad for the skin and that you shouldn’t wear it everyday. But it’s perfectly fine to use liquid foundation everyday. You just gotta make sure to remove it properly before heading off to sleep.
