Knowing your skin types

Unlike other artists, a make-up artist’s canvas can change depending on who walks through the door.

Unlike other artists, a make-up artist’s canvas can change depending on who walks through the door. Skin can even change based on a number of factors including the season, time of the month, illness, pregnancy or age. It is good to know the four different skin types and how to spot them; they can help you figure out the best products to use.

Normal

Look out for skin features:

-Pores are not enlarged or clearly visible

-There are no brown or red spots or patches

-Dryness or oily skin is rare

-Foundation does not need to be reapplied / powder is not needed to ‘soak up’ shine

Oily

Look out for skin features:

-Pores are clearly visible

-Blackheads and blemishes are common

-Make-up needs reapplying throughout the day / evening

-Shine is common even with powder applied

Dry

Look out for skin features:

-Pores are almost invisible

-Red patches are common

-Skin doesn’t stretch easily and there are visible lines (including laughter lines)

-Skin’s texture can feel rough

Combination

Look out for skin features:

-Blackheads are common

-Pores appear large and open

-Skin has a shine but also has dry areas

Skin prep

Knowing a client’s skin type beforehand can help you decide which foundations are best to use. Whilst a client’s skin care regime is out of your control, the best make-up artists don’t shy away from giving recommendations to help achieve a flawless base.
