What works for one person may not work for another. So keep in mind that the beauty of make-up can only shine through if it is suitable for your own skin. Here are some tips on types of make-up that'll be perfect for your skin type!
Make Up Tip For Mature Skin: Make sure tostay away fromheavy liquid foundationbecause they accentuate these aging marks such as wrinkles or fine lines. Alternatives would beloose powder, andtinted moisturisers. Properly moisturised skin withanti aging creamwill take the focus away from dry skin for a more youthful glow. Lastly,primerwill help create a smooth canvas for your make-up to glide on easier!
Make Up Tip For Oily & Acne-Prone Skin: For skin that is prone to blemishes make-up that istalc-freewould be ideal because talc is soft and soapy which will add more shine to the face.Natural ingredientsthat are good for the skin such as Vitamin D, and astringents will help condition and prevent additional break outs. Of course, aim foroil-freefoundations and make-up removers since your skin already has plenty of natural oil. For blush, concealers, and eye shadows avoid creamy consistencies instead usepowder basedbecause these absorb oil making your make-up not crease, smudge and last longer.Eye pencils and gel linerswould not run as much as liquid would on oily skin.
Make Up Tips For Dry Skin: If you have dry skin, you should use make-up that contains hydrating, natural ingredientslike Aloe Vera and vitamin E. Try to avoid applying thick foundation because it'll accent the flakiness of your skin. You should tryputting on moisturiser right before foundationso you already have a smooth base. Always opt forcream shadowsto add a healthy shine to the face. Most tend to suffer from fall outs from their eye shadows on dry lids soeye shadow primeris a must!
Make Up Tips For Combination Skin: This skin type is oily in some areas and dry in others. Some use different types of foundations for different problem areas. ex.) Make-up with SPF (adds oil) to dry spots and oil-free foundation on oily locations. However, this is quite the hassle to apply so I suggest usingwater based liquid foundation on problem areasonly and applying amatte powder all over face.This will cancel each other out, creating a flawless finish. Depending on your lids,both cream or powder eye shadowswould work well.
