The various foundation formulas favour different skin types; later, we'll come back to exactly which one is best for your complexion.
An easy-to-blend consistency and smooth appearance makes liquid foundation one of the most popular options out there. There are formulas to suit all needs and skin types, like oil-free, waterproof and 24-hour. You can build up fuller coverage by applying multiple layers.
Cream foundations are a handy on-the-go option, with compact or stick forms ideal for touch-ups during the day. Newer cream-to-powder foundations achieve a matte finish, which is wonderful for oily skin.
A true mineral foundation is made of completely natural ingredients that won’t clog the pores, so you can banish breakouts. It can be as buildable as a liquid foundation and gives a natural finish.
Pressed powder foundations have excellent oil-absorbing properties to help lessen shine throughout the day. This evens out the skin tone smoothly, creating effective but barely-there coverage.
