Foundation shade matching is a breeze with Maybelline - try on Maybelline's foundation shades from home with the help of our virtual tool.

Choose a liquid foundation for dry skin types such as our Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation - liquid formulas hold hydrating properties that can help create the appearance of an even skin tone and gives additional moisture to the skin. For lighter coverage, try a Tinted Moisturiser instead. Oily skin types should opt for a powder foundation, like the Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder, or use a mattifying liquid foundation such as the Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation. This minimises the appearance of excess shine and can improve skin tone. Combination skin types show signs of both oily and dry skin, so you'll want to find a foundation that addresses both of these issues. People with combination skin should opt for a liquid foundation, like our Superstay 30H Foundation, to help create an even skin tone over the dryer areas and then finish the look with a matte powder to eliminate any residual shine. For ageing skin, choose foundation makeup beyond cosmetic purposes - ideally, it should be formulated with important skincare ingredients with nourishing properties to help enhance and brighten your complexion. To identify your skin tone for the right foundation shade, you will first need to check the appearance of your veins beneath your skin. This will determine which one of the three main categories of skin tones you belong to - cool, neutral or warm. From there, you'll pick a foundation shade with the right hue to complement your skin. There are different types and textures of foundation makeup depending on the occasion, skin type and desired coverage. When selecting the right foundation, think about the level of coverage you would like and your skin type. You may even choose foundation makeup based on the application method that you are most comfortable with. There are a few different ways to apply foundation so always feel free to experiment until you've got your absolute fave:
1. Beauty Blender: a beauty blender is a makeup sponge that is ideal for applying liquid foundations and is excellent for blending into the skin's natural tone or for different shades. By using a beauty blender, it can get into small edges and makes sure your foundation is streak-free. 
2. Brushes: If you're looking for versatility, brushes can do it all when it comes to foundation. Use a foundation brush for an even spread of your liquid foundation or a fluffy and light touch for a matte foundation. 
3. Hands: You can even use your fingers to apply your foundation if you're caught without your tools. Liquid foundation melts and blends with the body's temperature.
