Did you recently have a sudden acne breakout? Are you experiencing dry and broken skin just a few hours after you apply your makeup? These are signs that you’re probably using the incorrect makeup product for your skin. All skin types and reactions are different. The product that might work perfectly for your friend might not be as good for you. It’s all about knowing how to prep your dry skin and what are the perfect makeup products and techniques for it.
You might feel frustrated not knowing what to try or which makeup products to buy. Therefore, in this blog, we’ll give you 4 secret makeup tips from beauty gurus for women with dry skin. Read on to find out!
#1- Check Your Prep Routine
Prepping your skin is more than just washing your face with soap and water. Dry skin tends to lack natural oil, so you must have a routine full of serums, moisturizers, and face mists to restore your skin’s natural barrier and keep it healthy. Invest in a good moisturizer to help you reach the perfect base for your makeup.
#2- Eliminate Flaking Skin
There’s an old rumor about how dry skin doesn’t need exfoliation. Again. It’s just a rumor. In fact, dry skin specifically needs to be exfoliated to eliminate flaking skin and improve absorption. This will help you achieve a smooth skin texture and even skin tone look on your makeup.
#3- Put The Foundation Away
Yes. We just said: no foundation. You might wonder. How am I going to get my coverage without my foundation? Turns out that with dry skin, you can try alternatives to your full-coverage matte foundation. You can use a lighter formula like a tinted moisturizer, BB cream, or CC cream. This can prevent makeup from clinging to dry flakes and a cakey finish.
#4- Rub. Don’t Pat.
Dry skin and patting just don’t go well together. Try rubbing instead of patting with a sponge or beauty blender when trying to blend in your makeup. This method will help the product melt into your skin and provide a more natural finish without enhancing dryness.
