Sorry if this has been asked before, but What are your thoughts on powder vs liquid or cream foundation? Should people with dry skin avoid powder, or can either be used on any skin type?

This is a great question! There are so many formulas on the market nowadays rather than just standard powder foundation and it can often be confusing which formula is suitable for which skin type….

LIQUID FOUNDATION:

Liquids are suitable for ALL skin types but where possible choose a formula tailored to your skin type. Dry/Normal skin is best with a moisturising formula and Oily/Combo skin is best off with an oil-free mattifying formula. Try: Revlon ColorStay Foundation (for all skin types) and Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation (for normal, dry and combo skin)

MOUSSE FOUNDATION:

Mousse foundations are best suited towards those with normal or oily skin, they are generally NOT suitable for skin with any signs of dryness as they have a tendency to cling onto dry patches of the skin. Try: Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation and Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation

velvet--dress  asked:

if water based foundations are good for swimming, rain etc those that mean oil based foundations are good for oily skin? what are some?

Not exactly, some oily skin gals prefer oil free foundations! Some would argue you want to go for an oil free foundation because oily skin doesnt need any more oil. I’ll explain a little the pros and cons of each makeup base so you can choose for yourself :)

It’s really useful to know a little bit about the make up of makeup (hehe) to better understand which foundation or makeup is best for you. Take a look at the ingredients list on makeup products to learn a little more about them. 

There are a few different types of face makeup

  1. Water based
  2. Oil based
  3. Silicone based
  4. Alcohol based
  5. Powder based
  6. Mineral based

Water based foundations (ones that claim to be oil free) are more light weight, have lighter coverage, usually has a more matte finish, won’t clog pores like some other foundations and doesn’t feel greasy or oily.

  • Ex. MAC Face & Body, Makeup Forever Face & Body, Covergirl Clean Makeup, Cover FX Oil Free Foundation

Oil based foundations tend to be fuller coverage, more creamy, can have more of a dewy finish and blends easily but some can clog pores and look a little greasy/oily. Oil based foundations tend to be better for dry skin because they are more oily and “moisturizing”.

  • Ex. Revlon Colorstay

Silicone based foundations are similar to oil based foundations in the sense they have full coverage. They feel a little more light weight and comfortable on the skin. Very pore perfecting, creamy and smoothing like silicone based primers. Could possibly clog pores.

  • Ex. Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse.

Alcohol based foundations has very light weight and give little to medium coverage. Many airbrush systems use an alcohol based foundation.

  • Ex. Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation.

Mineral based foundations are the most gentle, non irritating types of face makeup because they are all natural. Most mineral foundations are powder but there are a few exceptions where there is mineral liquid foundation and concealers (Bare Minerals just released a liquid foundation). Usually more light to medium coverage.

  • Ex. Bare Minerals, Pur Cosmetics

Powder based foundations are light weight, easy to use powders with more coverage than normal setting powders. They are easy to use and feel light on the skin. The downside is it can look cakey and powdery if you have dry skin or don’t use a proper moisturizer before hand.

  • Ex. MAC Studio Fix Powder, Milani Multitasking Powder, Makeup Forever Duo Matte

Dream Matte Mousse - the be all & end all?

I’ve been using this foundation since I was 15 (for 3 years now!) and I still love it. It’s easy to apply as it’s not liquid so it won’t run everywhere yet its not power, so you can apply it using your hands. Recently, it has gone up in price quite a bit though, hence why I’m branching out abit when buying foundation! 4.5/5 xxxxxxxxxx

I decided to try Maybelline’s dream matte mousse foundation a week or two ago and I really love it so far. It’s an incredibly light whipped formula so it’s super blend able and easy to build coverage without it caking up at all. Once it dries it feels completely soft and natural and doesn’t transfer at all, I can completely cover my acne without my skin feeling weighed down or sticky. This also hasn’t clogged my pores or broken me out at all so far, so I’m really impressed by that.
I don’t use a setting powder or primer or anything like that with this product and it always turns out even and beautiful. It lasts me from 6:30am to midnight without needing to be touched up, even through sweat and ridiculous humidity, so that’s much better than I expected.
The only real con that I’ve come into so far is that there isn’t a lot of color/tone variety because almost all of the shades are pretty beige. The color light nude works well for me right now because I have a bit of a tan, but I don’t know how well it will work when my ghostly winter skin makes a come back.
My favorite thing about this foundation is that it dries completely matte but doesn’t flake up or dry out my skin like a lot of liquid foundations do. It also photographs really well in all lighting; the first picture is in really harsh artificial light, the third is in direct sunlight, and the second is taken in a combination of natural and artificial light.
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a long-wearing but low maintenance foundation with build able coverage.
