Home Blog Our Favorite Dermatologist-Recommended Foundations By Skin Type

Foundation isn’t just about your skin type. It’s also important to pick the right color and consistency for you, no matter what type of foundation you’re looking for! That being said, we’ve put together a list of five foundations that dermatologists recommend according to different types of skin.

Dry Skin – Maybelline Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation

This cult-favorite foundation provides low-cost, buildable coverage that is perfect for dry skin. It has ingredients that help keep your skin fresh and moisturized and is also non-comedogenic for those prone to breakouts.  The reviews are overwhelmingly positive, so if you’ve been looking for a new foundation, try this one out!

Oily Skin – Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup

Protect your skin from the sun with this healthy formula that includes natural ingredients such as vitamin E and feverfew. This formula’s vital sunscreen component helps prevent brown spots after acne scarring while protecting you from daily stressors that can lead to hyperpigmentation over time.

Combination Skin – Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation with SPF 20

Physician’s Formula brings you a lightweight foundation made to provide coverage while also having the added perk of brightening your complexion and minimizing dull patches. The best part? It’s gentle enough for reapplication, so you never have to worry about breaking out or clogging pores if you need a quick touch-up during the day!

Mature Skin – IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better

This fantastic, natural-based foundation helps to provide a flawless complexion with its moisturizing ingredients and light coverage. It’s great for everyone but especially benefits those with mature skin.

Because it includes aloe vera, hyaluronic acid, and vitamins E & B5, you’ll see flawless complexion results. These crucial ingredients moisturize the skin while helping to even out discolorations caused by hyperpigmentation, giving you a fresh, young look!

All Skin Types – Dermablend Cover Creme

This is the best full coverage foundation, hands down! Formulated hand in hand by a makeup artist and a dermatologist, this liquid foundation is designed to cover birthmarks, burns, scars, and hyperpigmentation. It provides broad-spectrum SPF 30 protection from the sun’s harmful rays while also providing lightweight coverage that doesn’t cake up like some other formulas might do!
