Today's makeup tip will be how to chose a foundation for your skin type. So let's get straight to it! Oily If you have oily skin like me, but love the matte finish and looking for a foundation that will help control your oily skin, look for an oil free, cream-to-powder, or matte foundation. Combination Combination skin should try a stick foundation which helps with the shine in the T zone area, but also kind to the other areas. Dry Dry skin should try a tinted moisturizer or liquid foundation or cream formula. Each formula helps with the dryness of your skin.
