Achieving Healthy Makeup for Dry Skin

Applying makeup for dry skin can truly be a difficult struggle. With flaking skin and dry patches that you constantly need to work with, the formula of the makeup products you use should be greatly considered. In this article, we will share tips from beauty experts on how you can achieve healthy-looking makeup for dry skin. Be ready to get glowing without worries of dry skin!

Step up your moisturizing game with serum

Prepping your skin properly is very important prior to applying makeup, regardless of your skin type. Moisturizing is an important part of prepping your skin. As for those with excessively dry skin, using a moisturizing cream alone might not be enough. In this case, you need to double-up your moisturizing step by investing in a premium serum that caters to your skin concerns. Apply it after toning and let your skin absorb it fully before applying your moisture cream. Look for serums that feature rich moisturizing ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen and Fruit and Vegetable extracts (Olive, Tea Tree, Aloe Vera, Green Tea).

Pay attention to the formula of your foundation

Foundation plays a vital role in achieving glowing healthy makeup especially when it comes to dealing with dry skin. Some foundations are just too thick and dry which can definitely highlight patches of the skin. For this, it’s safe to go for a tinted moisturizer or hydrating foundation. However, if you feel like you need more coverage, you can tweak the formulation of your liquid foundation by using a lightweight mineral powder. Cecilia Muench, the creative director of Inglot mentions, "To make foundation thicker, mix in a touch of loose powder. (Be careful not to add too much or it will cake.)"

Skip powder touch-ups

Around 4 to 5 hours after applying your makeup, you may feel the need to do some minor touch-ups. If you have dry skin, loading up with more powder will only highlight flakiness and dry patches. Using a face mist helps with dry skin touch-ups. Professional makeup artist Mark Anthony recommends this useful beauty tip, "After applying foundation, spray a skin-soothing mist onto the large, flat side of a damp Beauty blender and press it into your skin all over to diffuse the look of 'makeup' and give you a very natural, hydrated complexion." You can also use an air puff sponge which is most commonly found in cushion foundation compacts.
