When choosing the correct foundation you need to ask yourself: What is my skin type? What amount of coverage do I need? Based on these questions you can determine what type of foundation will suite your needs. Eg if you have oily skin you will need oil control foundation or powder foundation. Or if you have dry skin then a moisture rich foundation will complement your skin. Depending on the coverage required, light to medium – mineral foundation & powder foundation are best suited. Medium to heavy coverage – liquid and cream foundations are best suited.
