Tips for Choosing the Right Makeup Foundation

Finding the right makeup foundation is an essential part of setting up your beauty routine. What shade looks best with your skin? How can you apply it to get the best results? At Glo Skin Beauty, we believe finding the answers should be fun and informative. Check out these resources from our beauty experts to learn more about makeup foundation and the many benefits it provides.

Meet your foundation match with our edit of sheer, medium, to full coverage mineral foundations in matte, dewy, or satin finishes. Your skin is your best base, and at Glo, we take a skin-first approach, elevating and enhancing your natural radiance first, then adding color to correct and perfect. We power our clean, natural foundations with skincare ingredients including protective antioxidants, suncare, and hyaluronic acid to nourish your skin, while treating tone and texture on the surface with mineral pigments. Picking your perfect foundation is not just about selecting the right shade—although that’s important (try our Shade Finder), it’s also about finding the right finish and coverage too.

For sheer and natural foundations, try a primer or tint for a dewy finish, or for more buildable, flexible coverage, try a multitasking foundation stick. Liquid foundation can give a dewy finish with sheer to medium coverage. While, for a more semi-matte effect that’s great for oily skin, try a pressed powder foundation for buildable, sheer to full coverage. If it’s medium to full coverage you’re after, look to cream foundations with a satin finish, or a loose powder for mattifying effects. All our mineral foundations are clean, cruelty free, paraben free, and talc free, suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.

Frequently Asked Questions About Foundation

How do I keep my foundation from getting dry?

"Go for a moisturizing foundation. Prep skin with moisturizer first, then apply a glowy, hydrating foundation. To avoid it drying out, spritz skin with a hydrating mist to add + lock in moisture throughout the day," says Janeena Rumsey, Global Artistry Lead.

How do I stop my foundation from showing my pores?

"Create your own pore minimizer foundation by starting with a face primer to blur and fill lines, then apply your favorite foundation to reduce the appearance of pores further, plus smooth any unwanted texture such as fine lines + wrinkles," says Janeena Rumsey, Global Artistry Lead.

What is mineral foundation good for?

"Our mineral foundations are loaded with skincare ingredients to add hydration and protection to your complexion, for a healthy, nourished second-skin effect. They work for all skin types + concerns," says Janeena Rumsey, Global Artistry Lead.

What's a sheer coverage?

"Sheer foundation is like your skin, but better. Sheer coverage provides a no-makeup-makeup look and is the most lightweight coverage level. It subtly evens tones + texture, while allowing skin to look fresh and naturally glowing," says Janeena Rumsey, Global Artistry Lead.

What is a matte foundation?

"A matte foundation helps absorb oil and mattify skin. It's a great choice for oily or combination skin types, especially if you're looking to eliminate shine throughout the day," says Janeena Rumsey, Global Artistry Lead.

Why you should switch to clean beauty?

"Some makeup products can cause irritation + breakouts, but clean beauty formulas—including clean foundation, contain nourishing, cruelty-free ingredients to boost skin health. Our skin-first beauty products are fragrance, paraben, and talc free," says Janeena Rumsey, Global Artistry Lead.

Why is talc bad for your face?

"We aren't a fan of talc, that's why all our makeup is talc free. Talc is a bulking agent that can be drying + irritating for skin, and isn't healthy to inhale. It settles on skin, accentuating fine lines, wrinkles, and pores. We recommend switching to our talc free foundation + mineral makeup to keep skin healthy + happy," says Janeena Rumsey, Global Artistry Lead.
