Finding a good foundation that works for your skin type can be tricky so I have compiled a list of my top three best foundations for dry skin. Foundations aren’t a one size fits all type of product. For a foundation to leave your complexion looking airbrushed you need to first consider the type of foundation your skin needs.
Dry skin works best with radiant, dewy foundations that inject some hydration back into the skin. This hydration eliminates the chances of foundation sticking to any dry spots on the face, creating a more seamless base for the rest of your makeup.
Dry skins require a smooth, radiant foundation formula that will keep your skin hydrated all day and the Charlotte Tilbury – Charlotte’s Beautiful Skin Foundation certainly lives up to this.
This foundation gives a medium coverage that still keeps your skin looking like skin. It evens out your skin tone to create a smooth, healthy glow.
Lets talk about all the benefits this product claims. It aims to boost the skins radiance and hydration whilst plumping and smoothing the skins texture. Testing out this foundation it certainly smooths the skin leaving an even base. The product is extremely lightweight and melts into the skin beautifully to combat minor imperfections.
The formula is enriched with hyaluronic acid which promises to provide the added hydration dry skin needs. The science behind the foundation doesn’t end there! Its Hyalurosmooth™ formula evens out texture, and combats dryness by locking in moisture for a bright and flawless finish.
To put the 16-hour lasting claim to the test I wore this foundation for an entire day of busy plans. My skin still looked and felt pretty good and t! There was very minimal creasing and no visible cracking or patchiness. It still felt comfortable on the skin leaving it hydrated and looking radiant without being oily. A fantastic option for day-to-day wear or for those who prefer a lightweight medium coverage. This is definitely a foundation I will continue to reach for on any occasions.
A foundation that is just as it says, long wearing. Those with dry skin will often need to choose a radiant foundation to diminish the possibilities of foundation settling on dry areas of the face which this product works beautifully for.
The NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation is medium to full coverage and is easily buildable to suit your personal foundation needs. With the ability to cover imperfections this foundation is still comfortable on the skin with its lightweight formula that stays true to its colour. I love that this foundation can be worn both day and night with a lighter amount applied for day-to-day use and easily buildable to a full coverage evening makeup look.
It’s long wearing, sweat proof formula means that you can apply this foundation with out the worry of it fading. Dance the night away and still look flawless ordering your 4am takeaway! (Yes, I am speaking from experience here.)
If you’re looking for a foundation that you can wear for all occasions then look no further. I come back to purchase this product time and time again because it seems to never let me down. Its radiant finish injects hydration into the skin and even includes a blend of extracts to help improve your skins elasticity over time.
Enriched with a hydrating mix of Hyaluronic acid, Glycerine and Aloe Vera the L’Oréal True Match foundation fuses both skincare and makeup to create a formula that leaves your skin looking radiant and refreshed.
A lightweight formula that gently evens your skin tone and buffs away slight imperfections creating a natural looking base. This light coverage formula is perfect for an everyday wear that keeps your skin hydrated and looking fresh.
If you are looking for a foundation that isn’t heavy on the skin and almost unrecognisable as a foundation, then this is the choice for you. It’s beautifully natural and with a range of 40 shades this foundation promises to match 98% of skin tones.
A beautiful everyday foundation retailing at around £9.99, this is a drugstore product that works just as well for hydrating your skin and feels silky smooth.
