Liquid or Loose Mineral Foundation Which is Right For You?

Liquid or Loose Mineral Foundation Which is Right For You?

Be ready to touch your skin and think surface level for how to decide what product is right for you. The answer has nothing to do with age, but hormonal concerns can be a factor…

Touch your bare skin first thing in the morning, in the afternoon (when you don't apply makeup), and in the evening (when the makeup is off). Write your observations... 

 

This information is easiest to use for those who have their custom formulas on file or know which of our foundation colors are their best match. Don't have your formula?

My skin feels rough to the touch

This is a good indicator that your skin is severely dry. Even if your skin once was oily and acne-prone, or if later in the day you get oily, you really need moisture for your skin. Sometimes the skin becomes oily later in the day because it is desperate to produce a protective barrier. If you start out the day feeling normal or dry and then later are very oily then you need a moisturizer. We recommend Dewy Decadence (a moisturizing, balancing liquid foundation) or a loose mineral with the ultra-rich Morning Dew Drops primer. You may even want to use the loose mineral with Dewy Decadence for additional coverage, but never use Dewy Decadence with a primer. Morning Dew Drops primer is used for people with exceptionally dry skin that Dewy Decadence foundation won’t be rich enough to soothe. You will start out using more than the two recommended drops per application if you have exceptionally dry skin. Over time, you will reduce as your skin becomes balanced.

 

Dewy Decadence - Not your 80s liquid foundation. We know that some liquid foundations have done you dirty, but we promise that Dewy Decadence is super clean. Dewy Decadence was made specifically for Darin's post-menopause skin, which means it was made by women for women. Dewy Decadence has pro-youth ingredients like Elderberry, Lemon, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, and contains minerals that shield your skin. While it might smell like a delicious Lemon Bar, the natural scent will fade quickly so you aren't overwhelmed. If we have your loose mineral formula on file, no need for a match.

 

The difference: Morning Dew Drops is meant to soothe ultra-dry, almost sandpaper feeling skin, or very thick skin that doesn't feel very elastic. Dewy Decadence is meant for people who are worried about fine lines but don't need the intensity of Morning Dew Drops. Dewy Decadence is also better for people with compromised or sensitive skin. 

 

My skin is really oily even in the morning

The loose mineral without a primer is perfect for you. Our mineral foundation (whether custom or not) does not have anything that can aggravate the skin. It is a pure mineral that shields your skin. Our loose mineral has buildable coverage and can always be used with any of the other products mentioned. If you are on the exceptionally oily side you may want to consider using the product Soften to finish over the loose mineral. You may also want to still look into a serum or moisturizer as oily skin is often a sign that your skin is not being treated properly. Even changing a face wash product can aid in improving your overall skin balance. 

 

My skin is a combination but mostly slightly dry

We recommend either Dewy Decadence or Dewluxe with Loose Mineral.

 

Dewluxe is a hydro-based primer that works to balance skin, soothe redness, and creates a beautiful natural finish to the loose mineral. It is excellent for people who want the coverage that loose mineral gives but love the moisturizing effect of Dewy Decadence. (You can always use Dewy Decadence with the loose but don't pair Dewy Decadence with Dewluxe).

Just because your skin is one way now doesn’t mean it will be forever. We recommend assessing your skin needs every time you reorder. We are happy to help you troubleshoot and find the best fit for you. We are only a message away.
