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.

Good coverage for a bb

I bought this as a quick colour fix and it doesn’t disappoint. Good coverage for a bb and a great price point. I usually add a bit to my Screen Queen as I prefer a higher spf. That is the only downside really - that it’s only spf 15!
And it’s quite dewy for coming into winter and notoriously drier skin (which I have).
All up, a good all rounder but I wouldn’t rely on this as a sunscreen substitute.

Great Coverage

I find this super buildable but love that it doesn't settle into my face, lasts all day with and without powder, I like the more natural result I get when I use this just by itself.

Best!

This is the best pressed powder I’ve tried so far! It leaves my skin looking airbrushed, smoothing out the complexion and not accentuating pores. I use it to set my liquid foundation and it does a great job.
