Choose the right type of foundation four your skin. Dry skin works well with hydrating formulations that will nourish the skin throughout the day. If you have normal skin, you can use formulations designed for dry skin or normal skin.

Oily skin loves matte finishes, and depending on the needs of the skin, it can still have light coverage.
Apply the concealer after foundation and concentrate it only at the necessary places. For a refreshed look, use highlighting pens and avoid excessive contouring below the surrounding area.
