Knowing your skin type is a very simple thing to do to really enhance your beauty game. Applying the right base before putting on make-up can make your skin look healthy and youthful.

Normal - Of course one person's normal is different from another but in the skin type world it's defined as the skin feeling smooth, not oily - essentially the skin type that makes others envious. The best products for this type of skin type are lightweight formulas, nothing to thick or heavy that will cause your skin to not breathe well.

Oily - The skin often looks shiny and may feel slick, breakouts have happened from time to time, even as an adult, and yes that's fine. You're going to want to look for a product that is a gel or liquid, and stay far away from heavy products. A gel will allow your skin to breathe while giving it the care and nutrients it needs.

Dry - The skin often feels tight, especially in the colder months. Nourish your skin with creams and moisturizers, a cream at night that is thicker greatly helps with dry skin. Advanced Therapy from Lubriderm is a great and affordable option.

Combination - You're a wildcard, meaning you need to be prepared for all elements. Your skin likely has an oily T-Zone, and then dry everywhere else. Having travel size/purse size skin treatments on hand is always ideal. You're going to want a serum or lotion for the dry areas and a gel/liquid for the more oil proned areas.
