10 Best Foundations For Dry Skin That Fit Any Beauty Budget
If you’ve convinced yourself that a dewy finish is something that’s pretty much impossible to achieve thanks to your dry AF skin, firstly, I feel your pain. While “super-matte”, “long-lasting” and “oil-control” are the buzzwords with foundations nowadays, if you have dry skin, then these can often crack on your skin, leaving not an airbrushed, but a patchy look.
Most foundations are loaded with powder pigments that dry down to a long-lasting matte finish, which inevitably looks rather flaky on dry skin.
When looking for a foundation to quench the thirst of your skin, look for terms such as moisturising, watery formula, satin finish, luminous and hydrating in the foundation. Of course, if your skin falls under the Sahara dessert category (guilty), then just a hydrating foundation will not be the answer to all your pain. You need proper prep.
Ditch the moisturiser and lather some oil onto clean skin; your skin will drink it all up and instantly feel hydrated. An illuminating or strobing cream mixed with your primer will give that extra hydration. Then go onto the foundation; do not slather a huge amount on, start small and slowly build it up.
However, not all foundations that promise to give you a glowing finish live up to their claim. By 1 PM your skin starts to look less dewy and more chalky. Hence, we have listed down 1o foundations that suit dry skin the best, to put an end to your misery.
