Makeup is a wonderful way to accentuate your features, but using it on dry skin can give quite the opposite result. If not done right, it can make your skin appear drier than before. Makeup also tends to settle into dry patches, making it impossible to achieve a flawless finish. So, does that mean girls with dry skin should steer clear of using makeup? Of course not. When it comes to creating a flawless makeup look for girls with dry skin, prepping the skin and using the right products is key. Scroll down as we share a list of products specifically formulated for dry skin type.
- 01. Blurring primer
- 02. Oil-based foundation
- 03. Hydrating concealer
- 04. Cream blush
- 05. Shimmery eyeshadow
- 06. Nourishing lipstick
01. Blurring primer
After prepping your skin, begin with a primer. It is a must-have for every skin type as it creates a smooth canvas for application and helps makeup blend seamlessly. Use a blurring primer with nourishing ingredients for a flawless, even-toned face.
02. Oil-based foundation
Next on the list is a foundation. Look for a liquid formula as it blends easily and won’t make your makeup look cakey. If you can get your hands on an oil-based formula as it will moisturise your skin and give it that dewy and radiant look.
03. Hydrating concealer
Choosing the right concealer is extremely crucial as it can make or break your look. For dry skin, avoid powder formulas as much as possible, they will only accentuate the dry patches and make your makeup look patchy. Instead, pick a hydrating formula that spreads smoothly for an even and crease-proof finish.
04. Cream blush
Add a pop of colour on the apples of your cheeks to give it a naturally flushed look. Again, a cream blush is an ideal choice; however, if you can’t get your hands on one, dab some creme lipstick to get a similar finish.
05. Shimmery eyeshadow
Even if you’re a fan of matte eyeshadows, invest in shimmery eyeshadows as well. Better yet, get a palette that offers the best of both worlds. Shimmery shades can mask the dryness on your lids and allow you to create several different eye looks.
06. Nourishing lipstick
Those with dry skin also struggle with dry, chapped lips. Using a matte lipstick can accentuate the dryness of your lips. To avoid this, invest in a lipstick that contains some nourishing ingredient. This way, your lips will stay hydrated all day long and your pout will look perfect.
