Your face is the foundation for the makeup and it is important to take care of your skin because makeup will only look as good as your skin allows. Establishing a cleansing routine that will help keep your pores clean and tight, as well as eliminating any stubborn acne or blackheads with the proper treatments or prescriptions will ensure that your makeup will glide on flawlessly. There are many types of face products including but not limited to: foundation, bronzer, highlighter, pressed and loose setting powders, facial sprays, etc.. When choosing these products, it is important to keep in mind the type of skin you have and purchase products that compliment it. For example, if you are prone to oily skin, a dewy-finish foundation may not be for you but a demi-matte would be perfect.
There are spas and beauty retailers that you can go to, to have your skin analyzed if you are unsure about what skin type and products would work best for you. ULTA Beauty has trained estheticians in their skincare section that are qualified to diagnose your skin type. If you suffer from cystic acne or recurring acne, I suggest visiting a dermatologist who can prescribe you with medications and ointments to treat it.
