Which is better, powder or liquid foundation for makeup?

It really depends on what you want to achieve with your makeup, as well as your skin type and beauty preferences. Powder or liquid foundation? It’s a personal decision. But learning how each formula behaves on your skin will help you make the right choice.

Powder foundations are usually lighter and more sheer than liquid foundations. Depending on their formula, they may feel more delicate on the skin. Powder foundations can reduce shine by absorbing excess oil. Powder foundations are more durable in high temperatures or sweaty conditions. If you have sensitive or allergy-prone skin, you may also prefer mineral-based powders because they have fewer chemicals, says LovelySkin CEO and board-certified dermatologist Dr. Joel Schlessinger. The shorter the list of ingredients, the better for skin that is easily irritated.

Formulas for liquid foundation can be more hydrating and keep dry skin smooth and looking fresh. A highly pigmented liquid will give you a full-coverage foundation that can be built up to camouflage severe discoloration.

Dr. Schlessinger says liquid foundation is a great choice for those with Rosacea and acne-prone skin. It can give a smoother look, while powder foundations can emphasize the texture of your skin and make acne or Rosacea appear more prominent.
