How To Choose The Right Foundation For You?



Should You Use Liquid Foundation Or Powder?

If you're like me, you've entered many a drugstore with the intent to purchase foundation—and left empty-handed in the face of an overwhelming number of options. But deciding between liquid and powder foundation doesn't have to be a total guessing game. Here are five tips for finding your perfect form of coverage. (Just don't forget to wash it off before bed; this Rain Facial Cleanser will get the job done.)

If you've got...Dry skin
Choose: Liquid foundation
Putting dry powder on already dry skin is a recipe for disaster, but a liquid foundation can help give your skin some of the moisture it craves. "Liquid foundation will make your skin look moist, plump, and healthy," says Joanna Schlip, celebrity makeup artist for Physician's Formula. Her top liquid pick for dry skin: Giorgio Armani's Luminous Silk Foundation (, amazon.com), which leaves a dewy finish so your skin looks as moisturized as it feels.

Just like you wouldn't put dry powder on a dry face, applying liquid foundation to an already slick surface is not a good call. "Oily skin benefits most from powder because the powder will absorb oil," says Emma Bruzzesi, makeup artist for Bluemercury. The matte finish of powder foundation will also keep shine at bay, Bruzzesi says. Lancôme's Dual Finish Foundation (, amazon.com) is Schlip's pick for powder foundations, because it can be applied wet or dry, depending on your coverage preference.

If you've got...Wrinkle worries
Choose: Liquid foundation
Even the slightest signs of aging can be magnified with the wrong makeup, so if you'd like to see fewer crow's-feet or laugh lines, opt for a liquid foundation. "Powder can actually settle into wrinkles and accentuate them, but liquid products act like a filler for a smoother finish," Bruzzesi says. If you've got large, visible pores, liquid is also your best bet (the filler thing, again). Try Make Up For Ever's Liquid Lift Foundation (, amazon.com), which is oil-free (no adult acne!) and specially formulated for mature skin.

If you're prone to...Sweating
Choose: Powder foundation
"You definitely want powder foundation for warmer weather because liquid will make you look too oily," says Marni Burton, celebrity makeup artist. She suggests IT Cosmetics' Celebration Foundation (, amazon.com). But the tables turn when you find yourself in a cold, dry climate—there, you'll want to switch back to a liquid foundation to add some extra moisture to your dry skin.

If you've got any kind of "texture" to your skin (i.e., acne, rosacea, or other dermatological issues), steer clear of powder foundations, as they'll only make it look more pronounced, suggests Bruzzesi. Liquid foundations will add more coverage to skin issues, and they'll stay put longer so you don't need to reapply as often.
