For most girls, imaging life without foundation is well… unimaginable. But the quest to finding the perfect foundation is quite a hassle TBH.
Right from getting the shade right, to the texture, ingredients and wear-time, your ideal foundation has to basically feel like second skin. And that’s why I suggest you mark it as a life-event on Facebook when you find the perfect match.
Did you know that apart from shade and coverage, you also need to consider your skin type while picking a foundation? Yep, it’s true. To make things easier for you (that’s what we’re here to do anyway), we’ve compiled a list of the perfect foundation formula, depending on your skin type. We’ve also thrown in a couple of of our faves, so you can add to cart right away. Take a look…
For dry skin
If you’re someone with really dry and flaky skin, it is important that you choose a foundation that contains hydrating properties. We recommend using the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation With SPF 45. Enriched with Moroccan argan oil, this foundation provides superior coverage while keeping the skin moisturised. The high SPF content of this foundation also prevents your skin from sun damage. Win-win!
For oily skin
If you an oily skin type, it is really important to choose your foundation wisely. The wrong formula can end up clogging your pores, causing breakouts and lead to makeup meltdowns. Always pick a matte finish and long-lasting formula if you have oily and acne-prone skin. The Lakme 9 To 5 Primer + Matte Perfect Cover Foundation is your best bet. It boasts of an extensive shade range, dries down to a smooth satin finish and evens out your skin tone.
Finding the right foundation for combination skin can prove to be slightly tricky because you have an oily t-zone, while the rest of your face is dry. But applying two different foundations does not make sense, plus it’s time-consuming. So what is one supposed to do, you ask? Well, you can apply a hydrating foundation all over your face and simply dab some compact or loose powder on areas that tend to get oily, such as your forehead, nose and chin. The Lakme Absolute White Intense Skin Cover Foundation is enriched with vitamin B3 and helps nourish and moisturise the skin while providing some serious coverage.
If you have sensitive skin, you need to be ultra-careful while choosing a foundation because you don’t know what might trigger a reaction. Opt for foundations that are enriched with natural and organic ingredients. This will help protect and nourish your skin. You can opt for the Lakme 9 to 5 Naturale Bi Phase Foundation Drops. This foundation comes with the goodness of aloe vera and green tea extracts to fight pollution and protect your skin while delivering a dewy, skin-like finish.
If you’re blessed with a normal skin type, choosing a foundation is literally a breeze for you. The only thing you really need to bother about is finding the correct shade and your life is sorted. The Lakme Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse is a great option for you. This foundation has a really lightweight texture and blends into your skin like an absolute dream.
