Makeup For Dry Skin

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.

From about the age of 15, bronzer has been one beauty item that has always remained in my makeup bag. As someone with a fair skin tone, I’ve relied heavily on bronzer to warm up my complexion, add definition and fake a sunkissed glow. I’m just going to skip over the part where I didn’t […]

Let’s not sugarcoat anything here – having sensitive eyes is bloody annoying. If you experience sensitivity yourself, you’re probably familiar with watery mascara streaks, black smudges, itchiness and bloodshot eyes. Not fun, is it? Dermatologists and ophthalmologists say the key to preventing discomfort and allergens is to use gentle eye makeup products. This is where […]

Out of all the various serums on the market, I’d say Vitamin C serums involve the most trial and error for the user. Given the instability of this ingredient, the sometimes strong smell and often associated tingling sensation, discovering the right formula for your skin can be a minefield. But boy, when you find the […]
