Which type of foundation should I use?

I am in search for a new foundation that my skin could benefit from.  My skin tends to become very oily during the day no matter what season, and it is also sensitive at times.  I use liquid foundation since my skin normally sweats a lot no matter what, and honestly, I really don't want to go to the bathroom every other hour just to powder my face.  My pores are also huge which is why I want to wear something with great coverage.  I am in my early twenties and also want to use something that is not only great for my skin, but something that will slow down the future aging process that I will encounter later on in the future.  I am wanting to know what type of foundation is actually better for me, liquid or powder despite my preferences and what brand of foundation I should be on the market for that fits all of the requirements I have listed above.  I hope someone out there could give me some suggestions.  I would greatly appreciate it!

AmorePacific CC compact! http://www.sephora.com/color-control-cushion-compact-broad-spectrum-spf-50-P378121?skuId=1496496

It's buildable to a medium-full coverage. The finish is satin like with a soft glow without shimmer or looking dewy. I have dry skin around my nose, and am oily on my forehead. It doesn't move or melt on my forehead with or without a setting powder. When I wear it my skin feels soft, not heavy like some full coverage foundations.

Agree.  Tarte's Finishing Powder is incredible.  A pin drop-sized amount covers my t-zone perfectly.  I apply it all over to set my foundation, then a swift through the t-zone after dressing for work. Haven't used blotting papers since.


you definitely want to also try Tarte's 12-Hour Foundation.  I can't say I've tried Kat D's formula, but it's only because it advertises that it can cover tattoos.  To me, if it can cover that, I'm fearful of it being too full coverage and not real enough for me.

I would highly suggest the Kat Von D foundation or the Hourglass Imaculate liquid powder foundation mattifying Oil free foundation and also Tarte's Smooth Operator Clay Finishing Powder with PM 20 it actually help reduce pores by 20% After 4 weeks of use. Here are the Links to each:http://www.sephora.com/immaculate-liquid-powder-foundation-mattifying-oil-free-P301802?skuId=






Hope this helps!

 Also you may want to check into a powder foundation like the pro finish powder foundation from MUFE.
