Most of the capsule is pretty darn adaptable to any skin type but I did find that a few things really needed to be individualized.
Here’s my list for each need/skin type:
Dry skin gals – Laura Mercier Hydrating primer: I’m in love with this stuff! I love it because it’s super moisturizing but I can use it before applying makeup and not have it interfere with the foundation because it soaks in really quickly. It’s got a nice luxurious feel to it as well.
Oily skin: Setting spray and/or powder and essential. (Maskcara now has it’s own setting spray- STAY) As far as primer goes I am split down the middle. For SUPER oily skin I am loving the Becca Ever Matte but it is HARD CORE and must be used with caution. For those who are just kind of oily I have been really liking the No7 Beautifully Matte Base
Combination skin: Porefessional has been a favorite of mine for a long time! It’s got the whole blurring out pore thing DOWN. It also makes foundation go on nice and smooth and hooks you up with staying power. For combo skin I also tend to stick to setting spray instead of powder because I’m big into the fresh dewy look. If you prefer the smooth powdery finish go with the Bye Bye pores Powder instead.
extra coverage/full coverage: Since the IIID is more of a build-able medium coverage I recommend those who want a little more to start with a tinted moisture and Laura Mercier is my fav. You can always use more coverage here if you prefer that I just tend to err on the side of natural whenever possible.
aging concerns: Amazing Cosmetics IF you want a primer that softens lines and wrinkles and helps makeup gliiiiide on smooth this is your baby.
Perfectionists: The Perfector is THE WORLD for getting a perfectly blended finish! There’s nothing that compares.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
And I hope to see all of my St. George girls at Blow Beauty tonight for our fun makeup party!
