For many women, the perfect solution for great coverage without a made-up look is powder foundation. This makeup is available with many features to reduce oil, protect skin from the UV rays of the sun and help fight the signs of aging. From fair skin to dark, this foundation suits most any skin type or shade.
For someone who doesn't use makeup often or young ladies that are just learning to wear makeup, powder foundation is the easiest type to apply. It blends into the skin easily and looks very natural. If your skin is oily, look for an oil-free foundation that helps combat oils during the day. This can reduce skin problems and create a smooth finish for hours on end.
For a matte finish, it's hard to beat this foundation. People with combination skin, those with both dry areas and oily areas on the face, can use it with fantastic results because it can be applied liberally in oily areas and more conservatively in dry areas to balance the entire face. When finished, pat your face with a clean, dry powder puff to absorb any access foundation and help set the makeup to the skin.
One option women have in this type of foundation is mineral makeup, like the foundation by Bobbi Brown. Mineral makeup is natural and many tout its health benefits for the face. The makeup is made of particles of minerals that can condition the skin as you wear the makeup.
Many other types of powder foundation are available, including foundation with SPF. For women that aren't in the sun much, consider a foundation with an SPF of 10 to 15. If you are in the sun frequently during the daylight hours (even during the winter) consider a foundation with an SPF of 20 or higher. Look for selections by Clarins, Estée Lauder, Lancôme and more.
Foundation with anti-aging properties can help even young women ward off, reduce or eliminate the signs of aging. Selections include Sue Devitt, Clinique, Origins and many others.
