Hi no kind of foundation work on my skin I have tried all types even a skin tone lighter and darker but it seems to not stay on my skin what can be the reason behind this
Expert:  Dr. David replied 10 months ago.

you should consult a cosmetic expert at a beauty salon.

you might need to wash your face oils off better before putting makeup on

there are many different types of foundations.

there are powder types and cream types.

I'm sure there is a type of foundation that will stay on your skin.
