Shop Makeup For Dry Skin


Finding the right makeup for dry skin is essential - it's surprising how many formulas can cling unflatteringly to dry areas, or look too "flat" rather than like skin. Those of us with dry skin at Adore Beauty have put together a list of our favourite products.

 

From light coverage to full, from primers to setting sprays, we've got dry skin covered. After moisturising, apply a primer made to hydrate the skin. This will keep your skin from looking flat or full throughout the day, while really locking in your makeup. Try going for a lighter coverage foundation with a dewy finish, and go back in with a high coverage concealer over any blemishes.


If your skin is too dry for powder, skip it completely! Or if you still get an oily T-zone, only apply powder where you need it. Try using a mineral powder over the top of tinted moisturiser, which will add just a bit of coverage but wont completely mattify your face.

 

And speaking of, try giving mineral powder a shot! Many new-generation mineral powders are made with skincare ingredients and emollients, so you may be very surprised at how flattering and hydrating they are.

 

A cream blush and contour will add dimension and colour. Look for creams that have a transparent base - think more like a jelly than a cream. Or try a liquid tint, which will last all day and give you a natural looking flush.

 

Don't forget - there are hydrating setting sprays that leave you with a dewy, hydrated finish and keep your makeup looking fresh.

Buy the original

Have used IT Cosmetics CC (the original one) for years, so wanted to try something with a bit more "dew". I'm 38, and this was incredibly drying on my skin and sat in all of my lines. It felt quite difficult to apply, like you needed a lot more product to get the same coverage as the original. The finish was not dewy at all, and seemed more matte and dry than the original. I've tried to use it a ...
