Try strategically mixing and matching formulas and avoid foundations that are formulated to be emollient or oil-rich. Read on to find the tips to choose a foundation for combination skin.

Understand your skin type

Test before you buy

Trying foundation on the back of your hand before buying is a risky business. You should test multiple colors side-by-side to make sure you love the foundation before buying. Find natural light outside or near a window, and dab the foundation directly on your jawline. This will help you see how it blends between your face and your neck and it should disappear into your skin finally.
