While choosing the right foundation can be tricky, there are certain advantages of selecting a liquid foundation over an oil based one. Liquid foundations are great for all skin types, easy to blend, provide natural coverage, and are great at reducing shine and evening out skin tone. For those of you with oily skin, here are some tips for choosing the best foundation for your oily skin.

Our first tip is to look at what you’re applying to your skin. A liquid foundation is much less concentrated than an oil based foundation, so it doesn’t clog pores as much. If you notice that your T-zone looks oily, try mixing some of the liquid foundation with a bit of moisturizer to soften the look. Some skin types are genetically prone to acne, and a liquid foundation can help prevent the flare up. Eliminating oil from your skin is a great way to prevent acne.

Second, you’ll want to make sure the foundation matches your skin tone exactly. To do this, apply a color that is slightly darker than your natural skin tone to the middle of your forehead, the bridge of your nose, and your chin. Make sure that the color is right on your skin. If you’re not sure, ask a sales person to help you, or go out and purchase a sample from a cosmetics manufacturer.

Third, to prevent skin from absorbing the foundation, you’ll want to apply powder to set the foundation. To do this, use a powder brush. If you don’t have any on hand, you can use translucent powder. If you have dry skin, you can use a cream blush instead of powder. If your skin is normal, you can use both. Other people who may have different skin tones would use their foundation with different tones, blacks, or greys.

Fourth, you need to blend the foundation around your entire face. When you think of what shape the face is, you’ll be able to tell what areas to skip. For example, if you apply too much foundation in the upper forehead, you may end up with a line across the top of your forehead. Don’t apply too much foundation to the under eye area because it will end up looking like a mask. It is best to apply about a tablespoon of foundation to the entire face.

Fifth, you should make sure that you are applying the foundation evenly. Many people are exaggerating when they apply foundation. By choosing the right shade, you can end up with a complexion that looks like a mask. When you apply too much foundation, you will end up with obvious lines from the razor. If you have nice skin, you should line your face before applying any foundation. This will help blend the foundation in so that it looks natural.

Sixth, you want to add the blusher to the right spots. Most people are happy with just the cheeks when they are finished with their foundation but whenever they are finished with the blusher, they have to hit the wrists. The reason for this is that the arms and hands have been teased by the blusher and need to be calmed. So unless your arms have been surgically enhanced, you should focus on the center part of your face where the lines are the most visible. Not the cheeks, nose, and the chest.

Seventh, you need to dot the blusher just under the cheekbone and against the side of your cheekbone. If it looks like you have too much on, use your finger to blot the color. Do not use too much powder because it will make your face look grayish and processed.

Eight, dust the brush on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and at the base of your neck. If you have too much on and you’re trying to gimmie-straighten your face, you might want to try putting on a pair of glasses. circulated face can benefit greatly from a bit of vaseline and a pressed powder.
