For Oily Skin

Always start with a primer that hides all traces of oil, then apply an oil-free foundation with a matte finish. To keep shine at bay, avoid cream or liquid blushes and bronzers, and set makeup with a translucent powder.

For Aging Skin

Powdered products can settle into fine lines and make wrinkles appear deeper. Start your makeup routine with a blurring primer to get a smooth base, then apply a light-diffusing foundation to make skin look even and flawless. A liquid blush and highlighter make skin look youthful and fresh.

For Combination Skin

Combination skin requires a bit of strategy. Apply a hydrating primer on dry areas like cheeks and forehead, then a mattifying primer on oily areas like your T-zone. A hydrating balm foundation makes skin look dewy without getting too greasy. To keep makeup looking flawless all day, carry a few blotting sheets to remove excess oils.
