Liquid vs. powder foundation

Liquid vs. powder foundation

Foundation is an essential part of a woman’s makeup routine.  I know for sure it is the one makeup item that I definitely cannot go without.  Makeup foundation helps to hide blemishes and gives your skin tone an all-over even look.  So there is no real debate about whether it is beneficial to use foundation.  The true question is whether to use liquid or powder foundation.Most women already have a preference in place.  However, some are still new to the art of applying makeup, and have not figured out which type of foundation they actually prefer.  Hopefully, I can help.

Generally speaking, there are more females using liquid foundation than there are females using the powder kind.  The reason being that liquid foundation is easier to apply.  Plus it is not too hard to find a liquid foundation color that can match the shade of your skin.  So the finished look will be pretty natural and flawless.  However, there are some pitfalls to liquid foundation.  It can clog up the pores on your face, and cause acne to form on your face.  Also, it is not the best makeup choice for people with oily skin, since it can cause your skin to look somewhat greasy.

On the other hand, powder foundation is a much better choice for anyone who has oily skin.  The powder can help to absorb some of the excess oil on your face.  So that in the end you will not have too much shine going on.  Unfortunately, powder foundation’s absorbing powers can make it inappropriate for those with dry skin.  It can really flake out your skin, and make you look bad.
