Learn the correct method of applying makeup based on your skin type

Go through this list of tips and enhance your knowledge on learning the right makeup for your skin type. 

1. Prepping your skin

Prepping your skin well is a vital step if you want to ‘ace the base’, i.e., achieve the perfect face makeup. A well-prepared canvas will always give you a smooth and glowy finish. It is important to hydrate your skin, irrespective of your skin type. Any makeup for sensitive skin or dry skin should start with prepping your face with a nourishing moisturiser. This will help your skin feel hydrated and soothed, and give you a smooth finish. Similarly, makeup for oily skin should begin with applying a gel-based moisturiser. This will ensure that your skin is hydrated without feeling overly oily or shiny. If you have normal to combination skin, a moisturiser formulated for daily use should do the trick. Pro tip: While doing makeup for sensitive skin, make sure you apply products with clean hands or clean tools to avoid irritating your skin. 

2. Choose the right primer makeup for your skin type

After hydrating your skin, it is essential to choose the right primer that suits your skin type. A primer is formulated to target a skin concern and create a smooth base for your makeup. So, makeup for oily skin and combination skin should definitely begin by applying a mattifying primer. This will help reduce the secretion of oils throughout the day and ensure your makeup is shine-free. Similarly, to achieve flawless makeup for dry skin, you must go for a dewy primer. This will help your makeup sit well on dry skin without flaking or cracking. 

3. Tailor your foundation as per your skin type

While choosing your foundation or fit me concealer, it is always important to keep your skin type in mind. When it comes to selecting a foundation while doing makeup for oily skin, go for the ones that are mattifying and non-comedogenic as they help your makeup last longer without clogging the pores. Mattifying foundations will ensure that your skin doesn’t produce excess sebum and looks fresh throughout the day. We recommend you to use the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation as it is ideal for normal to dry skin and works wonders for acne-prone skin, making it one of the best makeup products for acne-prone skin. If you have dry skin, it would be better to opt for products with a dewy finish. This will ensure your skin doesn’t feel overly dry throughout the day. A great makeup tip for combination skin can be to mix a drop of moisturiser in your foundation. This will ensure that your foundation doesn’t cling on to your dry patches or look overly oily. 

4. To bake or not to bake?

Searching for more tips on makeup for your skin type? Here’s another great one. While doing your makeup, baking is a great way to ensure your makeup lasts throughout the day. However, avoid baking with a loose powder while doing makeup for dry skin. Baking can overly dry out your already dry skin and result in your makeup looking cracked. For oily skin, baking is a boon as it helps the makeup last longer. But what about the people who have both i.e., combination skin? A great makeup tip for combination skin is to set your T-zone and avoid the drier portions of your face. This will result in a flawless base and ensure you look glamorous all day.  

5. Cream or powder products?

Cream products are great for people with dry skin as they don’t cling on to the drier patches of your skin and help you flaunt a hydrated look. However, this may not be a good makeup tip for oily skin. People with oily skin should opt for powder-based products. They sit well on the skin without making it appear too greasy.
