Makeup Tips and Tricks for Dry Skin

Apply concealer

Concealer camouflages any skin imperfections, eliminates redness and covers the under eye circles. In general, concealer makes your makeup complete and accurate. It’s especially recommendable for dry skin, as it creates the perfect base for a flawless makeup look. Apply it before the foundation and use a concealer that matches your skin tone not to make it visible.

Apply foundation

The important thing about the foundation is its formula. If your skin is dry and flaky, avoid using powder foundation. Just imagine what result you will have using powdery foundation on a dry skin! It will just worsen the condition, making your skin even drier and duller. So, opt for a liquid foundation and one that contains natural nourishing ingredients. Also avoid powder application after the foundation.

Contour the cheeks

For defined cheekbones, here your fingers come to help you. You may also use brush but probably it will leave some dusty leftovers on your cheeks. It just aggravates the cheek area, so try to use fingers for bending the blush and at the end with  circular motions make it even for the entire cheekbone zone.

Apply lipstick

Lips should always be smooth and soft, but many aspects affect it and they become dry and crumbly. There are many moisturizing lip balms that may be applied from time to time instead of lipstick. When you feel that your lips come to their normal state, you may reduce their usage and go for lipsticks more often. However, there are lipsticks that contain special ingredients that protect your lips from any external harmful influences and keep them soft throughout the day.

As you see, dry skin isn’t an insolvable problem. These steps are easy to follow as they don’t break your every-day makeup routine. You should just keep in mind some important factors to make a right choice among the beauty products! If you have all the necessary products, you just need to follow the tips and tricks for dry skin to create a radiant look worthy of compliments.
