Foundation has one job: to make you look as if you're not wearing any. And thankfully, we've come a long way in how foundation feels and looks on our skin. With so many advances in formulas, foundation isn't just the first step in makeup anymore—many consider it the last step in skin care, especially if you're dealing with a skin concern like oiliness. 

Choosing that second-skin shade is half the battle, then it's about application technique. But if your skin type is oily or combination, you also want to make sure your foundation won't clog your pores and just "sit" on top of your skin. So in our video below, we turned to clean beauty brand jane iredale—THE SKINCARE MAKEUP® to show three steps for making your foundation look smooth and natural, cut shine, and last.

In the video, we're using the BeautyPrep Hyaluronic Serum, the Beyond Matte™ Liquid Foundation—a vegan formula available in 18 true-to-you shades that adapt to your skin tone for a semi-matte look—and the Powder-Me SPF mineral sunscreen to finish. Watch our tutorial for skin that's silky smooth, even-toned, and just the right amount of dewy.
