Makeup For Dry Skin

Keep Your Skin Looking

& Feeling Fresh

The composition of your skin is determined by two factors: heredity and oil production. Since this can’t be altered, it’s essential to make sure that you use products that are specifically formulated for your skin type in order to maintain balance. Your makeup should work hand-in-hand with skincare; if your complexion tends towards dryness or dehydration, search out mineral makeup which will provide coverage, correct discoloration and protect the skin all at once.


The secret to achieving the perfect base makeup is using primer. Primer helps create a smooth and even surface for foundation application, all while reducing the appearance of pores and fine lines.

When selecting a foundation for dry skin, be sure to look out for products that contain nourishing components and offer finishes such as semi-matte, satin or dewy. Here are four great base options that fit this criteria:

Ensure your makeup remains flawless all day long with a light layer of finishing powder. Then, complete your look by spritzing an extra dose of hydration to the skin with Hyaluronic Acid-infused mist. You can either spray it before or after applying mineral foundation and use it throughout the day as needed for optimal radiance.


For a luxurious and dewy finish, creamy products are your best bet. Take the Perricone MD No Makeup Blush for example; this blush offers long-lasting color that won’t budge all day. The blendable formula is so easy to apply with either a brush or your fingers on the apples of cheeks and blended towards the temple. And if you’re worried about overdoing it? Don’t worry — just keep blending until you get the look you desire.


To ensure a flawless makeup look, begin by applying a thin layer of lip balm to your lips. Let the nourishing oils hydrate for several minutes before you move on with the rest of your routine. Once you have finished your foundation, eye and cheek products application, top it off with moisturizing lipstick like 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented® Pomegranate Oil Anti-Aging Lipstick or even opt for an ultra-moist high shine finish using 100% Pure Lip Caramel.

To wear creamy matte lipsticks, like Illamasqua Firework Lipstick, it is imperative that your lips are properly maintained and cared for. Thus, exfoliate once a week with Indie Lee Coconut Citrus Scrub to remove dead skin cell build-up; then directly apply INIKA Organic Lip Balm afterwards to hydrate and protect. 

It’s a great feeling to have makeup that fits your complexion and brings out the best of you, but it is just as important to ensure that you tend to your skin with an appropriate daily regimen.
