You just need to make sure you're using the right foundation for your skin type. Here are a few of our favorite products.
1. For Oily Skin
If you're prone to breakouts, you're going to want a foundation that's oil-free and that won't work to worsen acne. Clinique is the ultimate brand for skincare products, and its Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfecting Makeup ($27, Clinique) is great for oily skin. Because it contains salicylic acid, it helps to fight break outs like the common acne cleansers you use. Specialists at Allure suggest applying a small amount, mixed in with an oil-free moisturizer for a light finish that won't aggravate skin further.
2. For Dry Skin
If your skin is dry (especially in the winter) the last thing you want is to use a powder foundation, but rather something that will add some moisture to your skin. L'Oreal True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup ($12.99, Ulta) is made with 40 percent water, along with Vitamins E and C to keep skin hydrated and give it a dewy glow.
3. For Sensitive Skin
4. For Combination Skin
Make Up Forever) is not only a great product for combination skin, it's a glorious product in general. Because it's oil-free, it won't worsen areas on your skin prone to breakouts, but the hyaluronic acid formula is also hydrating on spots that are very dry.
