So if I use that foundation do I need to use a powder afterwards and if so what powder matches that? The problem is Wet n Wild doesn't have a powder for sand. I am a guy so i don't know much about foundation.


Would this work with it in tone tan biege

No, you don't need to use a powder.

You don't need powder but randomly choosing a foundation online is a bad idea. You should go to the makeup counter at a department store and get help in selecting the right shade and level of coverage for your skin. I'm guessing you want it to cover up something like rosacea, and some foundations are better for that than others. The way you apply the foundation will also make a difference in how natural it looks, and having someone show you how to apply it will be helpful.

Powder does help "set" your foundation, but it doesn't need to be the same color. Your best bet it to go with a translucent powder.

I think younger women would be more comfortable going to Seohora or Ulta for assistance. The staff there is generally younger for one thing. If you are a newbie to makeup, do ask for guidance though. Before buying tons of product, get going on a skin care regimen first. Almost any drugstore product line will work well. Choose for type of skin. Cleanse and moisturize every day.

There are "translucent" powders...no color...just a more "matte" look...takes away shine, and "sets" the foundation. Why is a man wearing makeup, anyway??

Probably to disguise a skin condition.
