- How do I choose a foundation for my face?
Always pick a foundation based on your skin type. SSBeauty has an exclusive collection of some of the best foundations for normal skin, combination skin, dry skin and oily skin. You can also choose the best foundation for you based on the amount of coverage you are looking for. While full coverage foundations work best for occasions and taking pictures as it completely covers the skin, you may want to opt for a low-medium coverage foundation that’s closer to natural skin for daily wear.
Another aspect to consider would be a foundation’s finish. There are three basic foundation finishes; dewy, matte and sheer. The finish you are going for would depend on your skin type and the season. For example, dewy foundations are hydrating, which is especially good for those with dry skin or mature skin.
