Make Up For Dry Skin

make up for dry skin

An alternative title for this post could be 'my everyday base routine' as these are the products I tend to wear everyday. I have dry skin and these products work really well together on my face without looking cakey or making my face look like it's flaking off which is a constant struggle with some foundations. As dry skin seems to be more of a problem in the colder months I thought this would be a useful post for lots of people!

The most important product in this selection, to me, is the Real Techniques Beauty Complexion Sponge. If you have dry skin this sponge is a must! It applies any foundation in a really even way without causing the skin to become irritated or flaky. I like to use the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation for everyday as it evens out my skin tone without being too heavy or thick. This makes it a great match (see what I did there?) for dry skin as well as having a more natural finish instead of matte.

Next up is concealer! Another Rimmel product, the Wake Me Up concealer provides good coverage for undereye darkness without going into fine lines or looking cakey which I often struggle with under the eyes. Dry skin under the eyes can be quite noticeable and feel tight or flaky so it's important to find a concealer that works well with your skin

The Maybelline Fit Me powder is my current favourite as it is very silky and soft, blending in with foundation and the skin instead of leaving a powdery finish. I also find this is great for touch ups on the go because it doesn't look cakey or obvious.

And for a bit of glow (or natural sheen in the case of dry skin) I like the Freedom Pro Highlight in Ambient as it gives a nice, subtle highlight that isn't in your face or super glittery. I've heard some people even like to use it all over the face as a setting powder!

What are your favourite make up products for dry skin? I would love to hear your reccomendations!
