Dewy Vs Matte Foundation: Which Should You Choose?

Choosing the right foundation for your skin type can be difficult even with help from professionals. The best thing you can do is complete extensive research for the different foundations available for your skin type and determine which could be most compatible. This article will be your comprehensive guide to determining your skin type and finding your perfect foundation.

What Is My Skin Type?

Oily Skin: excess oil production on the face causing a shiny appearance

Dry Skin: skin that lacks moisture due to a lack of sebum production

Combination Skin: partly oily skin in the T zone and drier skin on the cheeks


The Difference Between Dewy and Matte Foundation


A dewy foundation will suit dry and combination skin types. This is because they create a glow on the skin that creates the illusion of natural oil on the skin. Many are formulated to be moisturising and some have great skincare benefits.


A matte foundation is formulated with the purpose of reducing shine on the face. This makes it most ideal for oily skin types as it will mattify the look of their skin and try to limit shiny skin.


So which foundation is for you?

At the end of the day, you should use the foundation that feels most comfortable on your skin with consideration of your skin type. It is important to consider how your skin will feel after prolonged use and to also check the formulation and finish of the foundation.
