Foundation is a crucial product needed to create a flawless makeup base. However, it is of utmost importance that you pick the right shade for your skin colour and undertone, in addition to your skin type.

Foundation For Dry Skin

If you have dry skin, you need makeup products that can maintain hydration levels. Hence, a product that comes in a creamy or liquid consistency will suit your dermal layer the best.

You can pick from a wide range of liquid foundations by MAC, Kay Beauty, Maybelline, etc. If you prefer stick foundations, you can check out the ones on offer from Sugar, Blue Heaven, and HUDA Beauty. 

These foundations will blend effortlessly with other makeup products, keep the skin moisturized and feel lightweight. The products will also prevent your dermal layer from appearing patchy and looking flaky.

Foundation For Sensitive Skin

You can purchase a foundation for your acne-prone skin from brands like EX1, NARS, L’Oreal Paris, and MamaEarth. You can also pick a foundation with a clay-based formula. They are most likely to be made without skin irritants.
