    I'm 16 and want to try wearing foundation but i'm clueless! I have dry skin and everything i try, even if they're for dry skin, flakes on me. I would say my skin is light/medium brown? idk and I am neutral toned. Thank you!x

    Would highly recommend bourjois heathy mix WITH SERUM. Note: there's 2 types of bourjois healthy mix foundations, get the one with serum which is aimed at dry skin. I use to have the flaky problem as well, what really helped me was putting on a good layer of moisturiser on after cleansing before going to bed. Then before you put your makeup on put a generous layer of moisturiser on that's aimed at dry skin, you can even use e45! Let the moisturiser sink into your skin by leaving it for like 5 minutes before putting foundation on.
    To stop the foundation going cakes or too flaky, apply it in thin layers to build up the coverage.
    If I were you I would watch Lisa Eldridge videos on foundation and dry skin because she's like a fountain of knowledge
