Ahh! Combination skin, the tricky one, the one that can’t make up it’s mind on which side to stay, the one that sometimes drains you looking for the perfect foundation. I fully understand the problems combo skin peeps go through as I’m also part of the team, that’s why I’ve decided to list a few of the best foundation for combination skin! (and other reasons too!)
If you have a combination skin then you have a mixture of both oily and dry areas. Oil tends to build up on the forehead whereas dryness appear on the cheeks and other areas.
You may be thinking ‘oh great I need two whole different products’ but nope that would be mean and hard for us combo skins, I mean you could do that if you want but I’m sure you want an easier way.
So what this type of skin loves is the perfect foundation that is slightly matte, preferably a liquid one. So when on a lookout for products to suit your skin type try to pick semi matte foundations as you’ll find they cater more for your needs.
A good semi matte foundation reduces oiliness whilst at the same time hydrates dry areas.
