The Perfect Foundations For Combination Skin!
Most of us have combination skins, which basically means we are a perpetually confused group of women who can’t decide if our skins need hydration or have to be mattified. Combination skin in the literal sense derives its name from dual textured skin which is a mix of oily and dry. Let’s start from the scratch. Look at yourself in the mirror and with the help of your fingers, start feeling the texture of your skin when it’s bare. If you feel dryness towards your cheeks and further away from them and if you feel your nose, forehead and chin to be oily, you have combination skin.
Now when you know you have this type of skin, you can’t just pick up any random foundation from the store and use it. Combination skin needs to be catered to the same way as oily or dry skin. Pick up a foundation that’s hydrating YET mattifies your skin. Use a hydrating moisturiser just on your cheeks and an oil free moisturiser on your t-zone, then, use a powder foundation. We recommend the Clinique even better powder foundation.
If you’ve found your perfect shade and that’s a liquid foundation, don’t freak out! Dot the liquid foundation across your face and blend. Then, use a loose setting powder to only mattify your t-zone. This way, you’ll achieve nice and dewy cheeks and a matte t-zone!
Remember that a loose powder is the ultimate answer to whatever oiliness you face, so never leave your foundation bare. Perfecting your base when you have oily skin can be tricky but with the appropriate blending and the right foundation, you can tackle the problem areas and get that perfect base!
