What You Need to Know About Foundation for All Skin Types
Thank god we’ve come a long way since the early 2000s when no one knew how to match foundation to their skin tone. Those years were nightmare fuel. Thankfully, we have countless foundation shades to choose from today, and we can focus on more important things at hand. Things such as what’s the best foundation cream for all skin types? Or which face foundation is best for me? How do I know what foundation to use?
These are just some of the many foundation worries that can weigh heavily on your mind. So, sit back, relax, and have all your foundation-related questions answered down below.
What Is the Best Foundation for All Skin Types?
Truth be told, it’s difficult to get a single foundation that will suit all skin types. It all depends on whether you have any allergies to specific ingredients, how sensitive your skin is, whether you have any health conditions that could cause a reaction.
You should also keep in mind that your skin type can change with the seasons. You could have dry skin in winter, oily in summer, and combination in spring and fall.
Of course, there’s also the question of your own preferences. Do you want a matte finish, or do you prefer more of a luminous look? Do you need more or less coverage? You need to answer all of these questions before you find a face foundation that’s best for you.
Which Foundation Is Healthiest for Skin?
You should always check the ingredients before you get your foundation. Why? Because you want to avoid putting harmful substances such as paraben on your face.
The healthiest foundation will be made of natural ingredients that are mild and soothing for the skin. Look for beneficial ingredients such as iron oxide, vitamins, and minerals.

Do I Need Foundation If I Have Good Skin?
Probably one of the most common questions that every makeup professional gets is, “Do I need foundation if I have good skin?” Yes, and no.
If you have flawless skin that happens to be sensitive to makeup, then it’s a no for you. It might be best to go au naturel – just make sure to keep up with your skincare routine.
But, if you have good skin and love makeup, there are several reasons why you should wear foundation, or at least use our JBB Creams.
Primarily, face foundation helps to even out your skin tone and hide all the imperfections, however minor they may be. It’ll give you a healthy glow and all your selfies that extra pizzazz.
But more than this, it’ll keep your skin protected.
Foundation acts as a barrier between your skin and the harmful outside elements. Instead of all the grime, dirt, pollutants, and free radicals getting stuck to your face, they’ll be caught by your foundation. Hence why you should always remove your makeup before getting into bed.
The best foundations, like our 4 in One Camera Ready Foundation, will be packed with nourishing and moisturizing ingredients. Essentially, they’ll add to your skincare routine and keep your skin healthy.
So, yeah, you could (and maybe even should) use face foundation even if you have good skin.
What Should I Put on My Skin Before Foundation?
Our 4 in One Camera Ready Foundation allows you to skip all the steps and apply foundation only. No primers are needed, so it’s excellent for use when you’re in a rush.
But, if you want to ensure that your skin stays flawless, there are a few things you could put on your skin before foundation.
As you know, there’s a wrong and a right way to apply makeup, and there’s also the right way to prime your skin for makeup.
Before anything else, you should have your face completely clean and well moisturized. You don’t want to trap in any gunk with your foundation or have it appear scaly!
So, cleanse and moisturize first. You can use the 3 in One Fresh Cleanser to get your face ready for makeup.
Then, apply our Cooling Moisture Serum as a primer. It’s perfect for sensitive skin prone to irritations and redness. Let it absorb through the skin for a minute – then you can get ready for foundation.
Correctors and concealers should be the same shade as your foundation and be applied right after it.
Foundations can be tricky. If you use the wrong kind of face foundation, you can damage your skin, break out, and look patchy and cakey. But, if you use the right kind of foundation, you’ll enjoy so many benefits. Your skin will be protected from the outside elements, you’ll get plenty of moisture and hydration, and you’ll achieve that perfect airbrushed look!
So, take the foundation seriously, and get only high-quality products!
