Anyone can give the appearance of beautiful, flawless skin with these new foundations specially made for problem skin. Have fine lines, oily skin or redness? Check out our favorite foundations for a great complexion.
New formulas containing silicones (to smooth over rough surfaces), light-diffusing pigments (to illuminate dark areas) or sunscreen and antioxidants (to protect from environmental damage and fade brown spots) make it easy to have a smooth complexion and even skin tone.
For those of us with oily skin, oil-free makeup is the way to go. To keep shine at bay, search labels for the words “velvet,” “satin” or “matte.” Stop breakouts with acne-clearing agents such as salicylic acid, which unclogs pores and kills bacteria.
Women with sensitive skin should choose formulas free of preservatives, fragrances, talc and chemicals, which can cause irritation. Do a patch test on your neck for all new products to see if a reaction occurs.
