Foundation Finishes

  • Matte

    Matte finish is just that; matte. This can be an unforgiving finish on dry skin if you haven't used a good moisturiser and primer, whereas it's one of my preferred finishes to opt for when it comes to oily skin.

  • Dewy

  • Think morning dew on the grass. This finish is fresh and youthful. Not glittery, but it reflects light, giving a making your skin looks like it's glowing from within. Stay away from this if you have oily skin; there's a fine line between glowing and greasy, and any oil breaking through during the day will take you closer to the latter.

  • Satin/Natural

  • In between matte and dewy. This tends to be the more natural finish, kind of like your skin, but a little better. It's a fairly safe bet for most skin types, and works well with a lot of make up styles.
