 When it comes to buying and applying products, do you know your skin type to be able to choose what's right for you?

The importance of knowing your skin type and using products accordingly affects how flawless of a finish you have with foundations, makeup, etc.

It can also prevent skin reactions & breakouts caused by using the wrong products.

Dry dry dry! I use a hydrating cleanser and a good moisturizer. I have to stay away from powder foundations and use a setting spray instead to get that dewy finish.

Hmm, that's interesting. Dry skin usually has small, tight pores. But it could be a product that's drying your skin? Or the larger pores could be genetics.
