Oily and dry skin have one thing in common, that is, they like hydration. Dry skin craves for hydrating and nourishing ingredients throughout the day, while oily skin needs balanced hydration to avoid dehydration and over production of sebum. Water-based foundations can contribute to a natural, uniform and healthy skin.
You can apply water-based foundations with your fingers, wet cosmetic sponges and brushes. If you have a little more time, combine several tools to apply foundation. Apply it with finger from the middle of the face, gently spreading it to the outer edges. You can also apply it with a brush, then blend in with a sponge.
