Best high end foundation

Skin type is a key factor when considering buying a new foundation. Is your skin dry, oily or a combination of both? Depending on your answer, the best high end foundation will be different. If you have dry skin, you’re unlikely to be interested in a foundation with a matte finish. You’re already naturally matte, so why spend money to look essentially the same? A glowing, dewy finish is usually desired for naturally dry skin complexions. The best high end foundation for dry skin will give the appearance of a healthy, natural glow from within.

Combination skin can be tricky to understand because you have dry patches but an oily T-zone. With the help of a primer for problem areas, the best high end foundation for combination skin could very well be the same as the best for dry and oily skin complexions.
