Sheer coverage A light coverage product feels like you're barely wearing makeup. Don't like the feeling of wearing makeup? Then a light coverage is a good choice. With a light coverage product, you can still see the imperfections through the product, but your face will have a more even look.
Sheer- to Medium Do you want to create even skin, with a natural finish? Then a light to medium coverage can do the job for you. With this coverage, you'll still see your blemishes, texture, and lines and wrinkles, but you'll create an even tone all over your face.
Medium coverage Medium coverage is ideal if you don't like an overly heavy makeup base, but still want to hide blemishes. Medium coverage is suitable for covering redness and small blemishes to create an even skin tone.
Full coverage Do you suffer from spots, blemishes, redness or acne? If you want to hide these imperfections you can choose a full coverage foundation. With a good, full-coverage foundation you can hide all the blemishes on your face throughout the day.
Dry skin Dry skin is easy to recognize. Does your skin feel tight after showering? Do you have rough skin or flakes and do you have to moisture your skin often? Then you can speak of dry skin. Another indication of having dry skin is that your pores are not or hardly visible and you generally do not have any blockages or blackheads.
Oily skin Oily skin can be caused by an overproduction of sebum. Sebaceous glands are located beneath your skin's surface. Tallow which comes out of the sebaceous glands is an oily substance made from fats. Oily skin does not mean unhealthy skin. It can protect and even moisturize your skin. Still, it can cause certain discomfort during makeup application. The pores are often clearly visible around your nose, on your chin and sometimes on your forehead. With oily skin, you may suffer from blackheads and pimples.
Normal skin Normal skin means that your skin is balanced. You don't have oily skin very often, but neither is your skin very dry. You may have dry spots or a pimple, but in general your skin does not react directly to facial products, wearing makeup or to the weather. Your pores are small and you have no or a few blackheads or impurities.
Combination skin Combination skin is a combination between dry and oily skin. Usually people with combination skin have an oily T-zone (chin, nose and forehead). Gently dab your T-zone with your finger. Does this feel oilier than the skin on your cheeks? Then you may have combination skin. The visibility of your pores can vary with this skin type from one area of your face to another. On the T-zone, the pores are highly visible and on the dry areas, the pores are not visible. This also applies to blackheads and blemishes.
Acne/pimples. Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. It causes whiteheads, blackheads or pimples. Acne is most common among teenagers, though it affects people of all ages.
Redness Redness of the skin is characterized by redness on the cheeks, nose, forehead or chin. Permanent redness can also be a symptom of a skin problem such as couperose and rosacea.
Wrinkles/Fine lines Fine lines and wrinkles: sooner or later we all get them. A wrinkle is a permanent or temporary crease in the surface of the skin. Wrinkles often appear on the forehead or next to your eyes. You can also have fine lines on your face. This means that there are thin lines on your face, such as under your eyes or along the edges of your mouth.
Oil control Do you have a hard time controlling the oil in your face? Then you have oily skin. This is often due to excessive sebum production. The T-zone in the face is often the most oily. Oily skin can be recognized by several things. Your skin can feel shiny and greasy, you regularly suffer from imperfections, visible large pores and makeup does not stick well to your skin.
Uneven complexion When your skin has different skin colours and undertones in different examples like a dull or gray tone you have an uneven complexion.
Texture You probably recognize it: visible pores, irregularities, dry and red spots, a dull skin but also oily areas. Basically, a skin that can use that extra push every day.
Dry or flaky skin Dry skin can be recognized by spots on the skin that look rough. The skin can also feel tight. You can also see red spots on the skin, white flakes or a dull, gray colour.
Pigment spots Pigment spots are darker or lighter spots than the colour of your own skin. Pigment spots on the face can be very noticeable.
Dark circles Dark circles can be recognized by a dark shadow or a crease under the eye. Dark circles are thin skin with hardly any fat or connective tissue. This causes blood vessels under the eyes to become visible and the skin to take on a blue or gray glow.
Red spots Having red spots on the face can have several causes. However, red spots are easy to recognize. The colour differs from your normal skin tone and red spots are visible on the face. Redness on the face can also occur during the day.
Matte A matte finishis perfect for oily skin, but also if you like a matte finish with no (natural) shine. Matte products are meant to keep your skin matte all day long and these products actually work well for a perfect matte, non-shiny finish throughout the day.
Natural Do you like a natural look? Then you can opt for a natural finish. A natural finish ensures that your foundation/concealer matches the colour and texture of your skin, without covering the skin. A natural finish is fresh and natural, but not shiny like a radiant finish.
Radiant/Dewy 'Dewy skin' is a real makeup trend. This finish creates a beautiful, shiny skin (without making your skin look oily). A dewy finish creates skin that looks like you just came from the spa. A hydrated and shiny skin. This finish is ideal for dry skin types. If you have oily skin and love a dewy look, you may choose to powder off certain areas of the face. With this finish, you are assured of a radiant look.
The undertone of your skin can be warm, cold or neutral. This is a colour tone that shines through your facial skin. The colour of your face can change because of the sun or skin conditions such as pimples, acne, rosacea or redness, but the undertone of your skin remains the same. Wondering what your undertone is?
