One of the questions I always get asked is which foundation is best for oily skin. Finding the best foundation for your skin type is no easy task and with so many options out there it’s hard to pick one that is perfectly suited to your skin. I do often find that clients wrongly determine their skin type so getting that right would be the first port of call.Read More
