Skin can be tricky.  It always seems to break out at the most random times or get sunburnt when you’re barely outside!  Our skin doesn’t make sense 99% of the time and that can be very frustrating.  I know how hard it can be to determine what products are right for your skin.  So…I’ve come up with some easy tips to help you all out:

First, you need to decide whether your skin is sensitive or not.  I know what you’re thinking, “How can I tell?”  If your skin tends to sunburn easily then it is probably sensitive.  Another way to find out is to pay attention to see if you blush easily.  That sometimes indicates sensitive skin as well!  What I suggest for you, is Clinique.  Their brand has several options for those with sensitive skin and they work amazingly!Chelsea Crockett - Clinique

Second, you need to figure out if your skin is primarily dry or oily.  If your skin feels greasy or looks shiny, then it is safe to say you most likely have oily skin.  If it’s mostly dry and sometimes flaky, then you can obviously tell which skin type you have.  For those with oily skin, I suggest using a powder foundation.  And for those with dry skin, use a liquid foundation.  If you think about it, that makes perfect sense!  The foundation will set well on your skin and won’t slide off so easily.
