Dewy, matte or natural? How to find the right foundation for your skin type


This gives you the look of a beautiful, even skin tone. It’s not shiny or matte — it simply looks like skin.

If you have normal, oily or dry skin, a natural finish is for you.

How to apply: 

Use your fingers or a damp beauty blender and press the product into the skin.

Apply a thin layer to keep the makeup at a minimum. Spot-correct any problem areas with concealer.


A dewy look makes the skin appear hydrated, healthy and slightly shiny.

It’s not a sweaty or greasy look — instead, it’s a refreshed, glowing look that’ll keep your skin looking and feeling youthful.

It’s great if you have dry, dehydrated skin, or simply love a glistening look.

How to apply: 
Prep the face with a moisturizer or primer that has hyaluronic acid, this will plump the skin and lock in moisture.

Apply a hydrating foundation formula with a moist beauty blender, starting from the center of the face and working your way outwards.

For extra dewiness, dab highlighter on the high points of your cheekbones.


A shine-free, powdery finish that looks flawless in pictures, but in real life it can look fake and unnatural.

Although it doesn’t look very natural — it’s great in pictures or for a special formal type event.

Oily skin pairs perfectly with matte foundation. The foundation will absorb oil and decrease shine.

If you’re a selfie queen, go for the matte finish.

How to apply: 
Apply an oil-free moisturizer, let it dry, and use a foundation brush to apply the foundation beginning in the center of the face, and blending it outwards until it nearly disappears.
