6 of the Best Foundations for Combination Skin. Finding the right foundation for combination skin can be tough. Oily T-zones and dry patches require a special blend of ingredients.
A good foundation should look natural, but give your skin an uplifting glow that lasts all day.
For combination skin types, foundations work best with a primer, ensuring your dry patches are not emphasised and that your foundation stays in place all day.
Lastly, you will want to use a setting powder, focusing on the oily parts of your face (usually your T-zone) to give you a professional looking finish.
