How to choose foundation 

The foundation is a cosmetic applied after putting on the makeup primer. The foundation covers up all the small blemishes on the face. It evens out the skin tone and hides wrinkles and large pores. This cosmetic is applied before applying all the other makeup products because it serves as the base where other cosmetics can set on to.

Types of foundation
1)Liquid foundation
2)Cream foundation
3)Cake foundation
4)Waterproof foundation
5)Mineral Foundation
6)Spray foundation

Foundation and skin types 
 If your skin is oily, use oil-free liquid or powder foundation. They contain powders that absorb oil, leaving you with a matte, smooth finish, Mineral makeup often works well on oily skin, because the dry particles absorb moisture,  If you're prone to breakouts, use a foundation that contains salicylic acid. "It dries up the oil-producing glands that cause pimples. 

If you have combination skin like mine, strategically apply a powder foundation, which allows you to distribute more of the oil-absorbing makeup where you need it and less where you don't, without leaving visible lines (as a liquid or stick foundation would).

If you're a novice, try a powder foundation that's right for your skin type. "It's the easiest to apply, and it disappears into the skin more easily than liquid formulas, foundation in a compact (which is great for dry complexions). It melts into the skin like a liquid, but because it's a solid and applied with a sponge, it's easy to control. 

Problem: After a hug, it looks as if my face has come off on my husband's suit jacket.

Press a naked velvet puff to your face after applying foundation.It will help absorb any excess and push the foundation into the skin. Or you can use a puff or brush to apply a light veil of translucent powder, which will set the foundation.

Personally I am using L'Oreal True match and it works amazing on my skin.  Right now if you see my vanity its all L'Oreal True match. I love this products, blends easily n no visible lines.

Test for Foundation
The foundation that you must use should correctly match your skin color. To test for the matching foundation, apply it on your jaw line n not on your hands and see if the color matches the skin color on the neck.
Hope this will help you to find right foundation for your skin type.
