It is not sticky or tacky product. But it is so pigmented that it covers everything. For this reason, I would not only recommend it for oily skin, for which I believe it it the perfect makeup for but for all skin types, because if you have dry skin you are wearing lots of moisturizing products underneath it anyway.

How to choose right foundation shade?

Why is choosing a shade of foundation so hard? It remains one of the biggest challenges in makeup that is because skin across your face will never be even in tone. There will be areas of your skin which will look darker or some lighter. So always closely observe the skin closest to you for example jawline, neck, chest.

It is important to understand your undertone and that might be tricky because undertones are confusing. If you have a lot of yellow in your skin then you have warm undertone.

If you have a bit of pink or blue in your skin then you have cool undertone.

Generally it’s best to test foundation on your jawline. If it disappears in your skin then it is the perfect match. If it doesn’t match then you can also mix 2-3 foundation shades and then swatch on your jawline.
