Makeup for dry skin

Applying makeup is anyway a tricky and hard process, but applying makeup to dry skin is whole another challenge. Makeup doesn’t stick well to dry and patchy, rough skin. However, we have you sorted.

Follow these 10 steps and tricks to achieve that Beautiful and flawless makeup look:

Step 1: Use a Scrub

Using a scrub will help take all the dead skin cells off your skin and will lead to a smoother application process. Exfoliate well using a mild scrub.

Step 2: Go use a Moisturizer

Use foundation that is suited for dry skin only. Applying foundation helps to provide some sort of coverage to your face and provides a flawless look but using a matte foundation can really make your skin look cakey. Make sure the foundation is creamy and provides a dewy look.

Skip using a setting powder as that will just make your skin look more dry. Setting powder is needed for skin types that are oily and produce oil at regular intervals, since that’s not the case with you so it’s best to skip it.

Using a liquid blush is important to make that skin look dewy. Remember that you have to avoid powder products as much as possible. Add some blush to provide a nice tint to the apples of your cheeks to give that fresh glowing look.
