While there are no official rules in the world of makeup, we think it’s safe to say that a good base is the key to everything else. A bad foundation application can lead to an uneven and cakey result. To help ensure a seamless finish, start by finding the right foundation formula for you. To help steer you in the right direction, we asked makeup artist Emily Oliver for her foundation shopping tips.
Those with oily skin should be weary of foundations with a dewy finish, because oily skin can make the foundation appear too shiny. “Unless glowing is the desired look, stick to matte or semi-matte foundations and powders,” she says. We like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Fresh Wear Powder Foundation.
