Different skin types have different needs when it comes to cosmetics, and if you find the right types then not only will it make you look better, it will help to keep your skin smooth, acne free, and with the best possible texture.
Ideally, cosmetics should complement your skin and offer a barely there look, rather than actually trying to cover your skin in a more severe way. Stage makeup can sometimes be garish and opaque, makeup for evenings can be bright and bold, but for day to day stuff you will find that it is much better to use lighter shades.
Unfragranced make up that is free from talc is good for people with sensitive skin. Foundation and concealer with an SPF factor attached to it is something that you can use to keep your skin healthy in the summer if you have a fairer skin tone. Those with dry skin may find that cosmetics made from an aloe vera base work wonders to keep their skin looking buttery-smooth, and to stop irritation, flaking and redness. Always sample cosmetics and see how your skin reacts over a few hours before buying.
