Know Your Skin Type

Discover the skin type that best describes your complexion and receive tips on achieving a flawless look once you ID your complexion type.


Normal skin usually looks and feels smooth but can also react to changes in the environment: oilier in the summer and drier in the winter.

Dry skin occurs naturally as you age as the oil glands decrease their output. Dryness may also reflect your skin’s sensitivity to skincare products, cleansers, and even your diet or your emotions.
• Choose double-duty foundations that moisturize while helping to smooth the appearance of skin’s surface, like Advanced Radiance or CG Smoothers.
• Avoid alcohol-based products like harsh toners and astringents.
• Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! If your skin is extra dry, try a tinted moisturizer as a base for your foundation.

Oily skin is shiny and sticky. It starts the day by feeling clean and fresh, but by noon, feels greasy and slick.
• Try foundations and powders that help control oily shine without causing dryness to skin, like Clean, Sensitive Skin.
• Avoid touching your face during the day! Oils from your hands get transferred from your palms or fingers without you even realizing!
• Change your pillowcases more often. Oils can get trapped in the cloth and later irritate skin.

Combination skin usually expresses its unique qualities with oiliness in the t-zone and normal-to-dry skin everywhere else.
• Choose an oil-managing powder for your T-zone (and other oily areas).
• Use a flexible makeup routine to help cope with combination skin’s many moods.

Sensitive skin easily gets blotchy or irritated when coming into contact with makeup, hair products — even sudden changes in temperature and humidity! Typical reactions are itching, burning, chafing, and stinging skin.
• Don’t use harsh facial washes or soaps whose main ingredients are alcohols or fragrances — they’ll only further skin’s irritation.
• Use an unscented moisturizer to strengthen your skin and provide a barrier against irritants.
• A key to clearness is in fragrance-free makeup, like Clean Makeup and Pressed Powder.
