Posted by Sidrah on 01:19 with 13 comments
Evaluating your skin type is essential when selecting the right foundation. Figuring out which category your skin type falls under will help you select the ideal foundation that is suitable for your skin to achieve a flawless complexion.

Skin alters in texture throughout seasons. With the weather changing our skin is more prone to flaking and dry patches. Keep in mind for the colder season your skin requires more hydration since the dry weather produces less natural oil, applying moisturizer before any foundation will help distribute the product evenly onto the skin.

                Three basic skin types:

                                • Normal/Combination
                                • Oily
                                • Dry
To determine your skin type, use a simple test with a clean tissue in the morning right after you wake up since your skin is in its natural state. Blot the tissue on key areas of your face such as the nose and forehead.
