Hi lovely ladies,
There have been many posts for foundations and concealers for oily and dry skin types, but choosing good base products for combination skin can be pretty tricky because some areas tend to get oily and some dry, hence it’s difficult to find one that can be used uniformly. A great way to choose foundations and concealers is to go for a matte finish which doesn’t cause stretchiness or suck out moisture from your skin. In this post, I have compiled a list of concealers and foundations that can give the perfect finish to combination skin.
1. Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation:
This foundation has been touted to be best suited for oily skin, but turns out, this is great for combination skin too. The soft matte finish is non-drying, and doesn’t melt or flake on your skin. The drugstore foundation is easy on pocket and gives medium coverage to hide redness, blemishes and pigmentation.
2. Lakme 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Powder Foundation:
The texture is very creamy, smooth and silky. It blends in without much effort and gives a light and good coverage. It doesn’t leave a white cast and gives a flawless matte finish. It is quite pigmented too. Now talking about its staying power. I think this will work well for all skin types, especially oily skin. It lasts a good 4-5 hours on my skin after which I have to do a touch-up.
3. Tarte Clay Stick Foundation:
This full-coverage, powder-to-liquid formula has unique micro-encapsulated powders that burst with body heat to eliminate shine. The ingredient list boasts of antioxidant vitamins C, and Amazonian clay, making it a total skin-balancing powerhouse that hydrates or mattifies. In fact, it is great for spot concealing, highlighting and contouring along with full face coverage.
4. Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF 15:
This is a much-loved foundation, as it seamlessly blends into skin. Staying true to the claims of ‘invisible, weightless coverage’, it is a boon for combination skin. It doesn’t allow oils to seep through yet feels comfortable on skin.
5. MAC Pro Longwear Concealer:
MAC has always been at the top of the game. This concealer is no exception and will suit combination skin very well. This fluid concealer provides full matte coverage and is very long lasting. This bottle of magic one can hide your trouble spots and keep them hidden for long hours even in heat and humidity.
6. L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer:
This affordable concealer is an answer to all your skin woes in a tube. Beauty bloggers and makeup lovers adore this to bits, it provides opaque coverage without looking cakey or being too creamy. The lightweight texture makes it suitable for all skin types.
7. NYX Professional Makeup Gotcha Covered:
NYX Gotcha Covered Concealer “always has your back.” It can effectively cover up discoloration and imperfections without creasing or caking, to give a smooth flawless finish. Infused with coconut oil, it is hydrating but doesn’t budget or melt.
8. Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Makeup:
This foundation is sheer luxury. Indulge your skin with its lightweight oil absorbing formula, that doesn’t dry out skin. Instead your skin looks and feels very smooth, with no flakiness or dry patches.
9. Chambor Orosa Skin Fusion Foundation SPF 15:
It gives a moderately matte finish to the skin for 5 hours at a go. After that I need to touch up the oily areas of my skin to give back the matte look. Initially it looks dewy, but after a 5-10minutes, you can completely forget about the foundation. Being light-weight it gives a comfortable wear for a pretty long time.
10. Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation:
Rimmel nailed it with the feather light, oil-free formula of this foundation. The airy mousse texture helps in shine control and blends flawlessly for a natural-looking matte finish. It takes care of your skin, gives medium to full coverage and minimizes the appearance of pores. And did I mention how affordable it is? Definitely worth a shot!
