How to choose a foundation for oily and dry skin
As much as you love all types of makeup, you have to ensure that what you purchase matches your skin type. This is especially true for foundation; something that will react differently with oily and dry skin. If you've been confused about the kind of foundation your skin needs, we are here to help…

Understanding oily skin

If your skin feels unnecessarily greasy, especially towards your T-Zone and is prone to acne and breakouts then you’ve got oily skin. It is caused by high sebum levels which result in extra oil being secreted on the surface.

BB Recommends: If you suffer from oily skin, chances are that your foundation can never stay in place no matter how hard you try to fix it. That’s why we recommend the Lakmé 9 to 5 Flawless Makeup Foundation that is enriched with a unique mattifying formula that ensures your foundation stays put all day without requiring a touch-up. What's more, it also comes with a pump dispenser to make the process of application simpler.

How to apply

Pump a dime sized amount of the foundation into a damp sponge or makeup brush and gently blend it in upward strokes to ensure you get a flawless, more natural looking coverage out of your foundation.


Understanding dry skin

Dry skin is a condition which mainly causes itching, scaling and flaking due the loss of moisture in the skin. While this condition is often treatable, if it is not taken care of at the initial stages, it may ultimately lead to more grave skin condition, even eczema.

BB Loves

Applying foundation on dry, flaky skin is a chore. Make sure that your skin is moisturised before you go ahead with the application. We bet on the Lakmé Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse Foundation that has a super blendable formula, which covers spots and gives you an even skin tone.

How to apply

Apply a dime sized amount all over your face and blend it in upward strokes with either your fingers or a damp sponge for an even coverage.
