There are many different types of foundations out there. There are powder formulas, which are perfect for oily skin types, tinted moisturizers for dry complexions and liquid options for everyone in between. One newer foundation categories we’re excited about is the serum foundation. To find out exactly what they are and who they’re best for, we chatted with Dermablend makeup artist Andrew Velazquez to find out.
If you’re not ready to switch to a serum foundation or it doesn’t sound right for your skin, Velazquez suggests starting with a similar product, like the Flawless Creator by Dermablend. While this is not a serum foundation, Velazquez compares it to one because it works the same way a serum would. “Flawless Creator works like a serum foundation because it’s pure pigment — there are no fillers or water or oils; it’s literally just color, so it melts into the skin the same way,” he says. Velazquez suggests using the Flawless Creator with a mixing medium or a skin-care serum to achieve the same melts-into-your-skin finish.
