Picture this. You are insanely awaiting this party where you are going to meet the guy of your dreams. Difficult? Well, then imagine you are going to the party with your dream boy. You want to look the best you can. You clean your face, dress up and all you need to do is apply makeup. You put on the foundation and move onto the next makeup item on the list. Soon enough you get a rude shock. What you had put on is no good. It has been rather unsuccessful in covering up the minute irregularities as a consequence of your dry skin.
Now this scenario is nothing out of the world. Some may think that there is no remedy for dealing with this problem and skin care is a far cry in this case from other things. But there is a good news for girls! There is make up and foundation specially meant for those who have dry skin.
Foundation for Dry Skin Makeup
As a thumb rule and as common knowledge, dry skin will require a makeup foundation with loads of moisturizers in it. That is, you need to buy hydrating products.
Helena Rubenstein's Color Clone Perfect Complexion Creator is one of the good options for dry skin. It fuses with skin, at the same time retains its tone. This ultra light foundation is priced at around $45.
MAC Select Moisture
With a Blend SPF 15, MAC Selected Moisture this blends a radiant natural satin medium till a buildable coverage. It has a nice, silky feel. It conditions and moisturizes the skin and also provides UV ray protection. All in all as a result of this, women with dry skin get a high-comfort, moisture-filled finish.
Shesiedo The Makeup
This foundation has a translucent and matte finish and it is in liquid form. Priced around $35, Shiesiedo has a refreshing and light texture facilitating coverage of fine lines and other irregularities. The end result is even texture and tone.
Finish Makeup, from Clinique Soft is again a good option. It moisturizes the skin well and softens the lines on dry skin. It has optical diffusers which reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles to almost zero. Add to that, it gives a soft and natural finish.
It is not important for the foundation to be from a huge brand. What is important is that whatever you buy should be safe and should suit your skin. Of course applying it correctly, too, is essential. For instance, some products are better off when you apply them with your fingers. In some cases, applying it with a brush may give a fantastic effect.
Types of Foundations
This is most suitable for dry skin. These give medium coverage and have a good moisturizing quality.
Cream or Powder
These do not augur well for dry skin. These have a tendency to be thicker and the powder leads to a shiny skin. You may use this, but not before applying a moisturizer first.
These are used by those who are professionals in the field of makeup. High degree of coverage and ease of use is what makes this type popular amongst professionals. The best part about these is that you can use them on specific spots.
The finish along with the type too has to be checked out while you buy foundation. Some skin types are enhanced with matte finish products, some are with natural finish and some are with medium coverage.
Basically, you need to try a couple of them to know which suits you the best. Along with the moisturizing and coverage factor, the color too has to be considered. This is where I sign off. Take care!
