Beauty Benefits of Liquid Formulas
There are a number of reasons why many women prefer to use liquid foundation. Many people find that liquids are very easy to blend, as they do not dry quickly and have a thinner consistency than creams. Most liquid foundations go on slightly sheer for a natural-looking finish. If needed, you can easily increase the level of coverage by dotting on a little more foundation
in areas where it's most needed, making liquid foundations very versatile.
Finding the Right Foundation for Your Complexion
Liquid foundations come in two main varieties: oil-free and moisturizing.
Oil-free liquid foundations are intended for women with oily and combination skin. These foundations provide a matte finish that helps to keep the nose, forehead and chin from becoming shiny during the day. In addition, oil-free foundations do not contribute to skin congestion, a common problem for those with oilier complexions.
Moisturizing liquid foundations are ideal for those with dry skin. These products contain ingredients that replenish lost moisture to address symptoms of dryness while providing coverage. Unlike other types of foundations, moisturizing liquids won't appear caked on when used on parched, flaky complexions.
You can read the product names and descriptions to determine whether the products in this assortment are oil-free formulas or moisturizing formulas.
A Perfect Skin Tone Match
To get gorgeous results from your liquid foundation, you need to choose the shade that is best suited for your skin tone. Unless you have dark skin, look for the hue that is as close to the natural color of your face as possible. Ladies with dark complexions should match their foundation to the colors of their neck for a natural look.
