Today’s question is one we’ve all probably wondered at some point…

    Q: If I have oily skin that has blemishes, which Benefit product should I use as a base/foundation?

    A: Hello dar-ling! All you need is Hello Flawless, our custom powder foundation. This powder is going to even out your skin tone while mattifying oily skin for an absolutely flawless complexion. The compact includes two applicators depending on the coverage you desire – a brush to sweep powder across the skin for a light to medium coverage and a sponge to cover pesky blemishes and provide a medium to heavy coverage. It’s the perfect base for the rest of your look. Next step is blush and bronzer!
