Add These to Your Makeup Routine If You Have Dry Skin

All skin types require a different routine when it comes to makeup but skin in need of a giant moisture bomb require a little more love. Applying makeup on dry skin won’t result in that smooth, flawless look we’re going for if it hasn’t been prepped properly or if the wrong type of products are used. The wrong type of products will highlight your pores and dryness instead of melting into your skin as it should. Thankfully the easy fix is to add a few things to your routine or switch some products out that will have your skin glowing!


1. Priming Oil

Priming oils are designed to be lightweight and hydrating to nourish and balance the skin before you begin your makeup. You can either apply it underneath your foundation or mix a drop in for a natural, dewy finish.

2. Hydrating Eye Cream

Since the skin under your eyes is extremely delicate and often times has lines, tapping in an eye cream will give you a velvety smooth base for your concealer. Choose one with hyaluronic acid or one that promises to smooth out lines and plump the skin.

3. Hydrating Primer

If you want to add a primer on top of the oil to help your makeup last all day, dab on one with a hydrating formula to lock in moisture. It’ll smooth out texture as much as possible and give you a poreless finish for a gorgeous makeup application!

4. Moisturizing Foundations

To get the perfect makeup base to build on, a foundation that won’t work to dry up the skin care products you just applied is very important. Choose a foundation that has some type of hydrating features to ensure your skin stays moisturized for as long as possible

5. Finely Milled Setting Powder with Hyaluronic Acid

Powders that are more finely milled settles beautifully on the skin because the particles are tiny. This is good because it will make your face look less textured. If it has hyaluronic acid included, even better! With this ingredient, the powder will not have the same drying effect as regular powders since it helps the skin retain moisture as well as draw in moisture from the environment.

6. Hydrating Setting Spray

Not all setting sprays are made equal! Some have a mattifying effect, some create a dewy finish and some actually provide long lasting moisture with hydrating ingredients.
