Last week I shared my favorite products for oily skin and now I am going to be sharing my favorite products for dry skin. I know that I don’t have dry skin at all but I can honestly tell you, as a makeup artist I’ve worked with many skin types especially dry skin and these products have worked with my clients. I’ve gotten so many clients from my clients.
Best Makeup for Dry Skin
Down below you’ll see an option for drugstore and high-end. I want to give you options based on your budget. When it comes to picking out makeup products when you have dry skin you want products that are going to be hydrating all day.

- Wet’n Wild Photo Focus Dewy – This primer is a lightweight primer. Infused with Vitamin E and it’s going to help smooth the skin for a beautiful makeup application. The primer is infused with pearl pigments to add dimension for that glow-from-within look.
- BECCA First Light Priming Filter – I’ve used this on myself and I love how it feels. I had to get it for my clients as well. It gives this beautiful glow while hydrating the skin. Although it looks purple don’t be fooled because it doesn’t apply in that color. Instead, it gives a pearl shade.
- Maybelline Fit Me Dewy + Smooth – I think this is probably one of the best foundations out there that’s drugstore that works so good on dry skin. It won’t clog your pores.
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Luminious – Is a light-weight formula and gives medium coverage. It’s also long-wearing, blurs imperfections and water-resistant. The foundation is so good and beautiful that your skin looks radiant when you use it. My best friend actually fell in love with it when I used it on her.
- L’Oreal Infallible Pro Glo – Some people don’t like this concealer but I think it’s a beautiful concealer. Gives the skin a radiant finish without it looking so cakey. It does hide the dark circles very good and hydrating under the eyes.
- Too Faced Born This Way – I love the foundation for this collection and the concealer is just as good. It does a good job hiding dark circles and imperfections. Hydrating under the eyes as well.
Picking out powders was sort of hard because no matter what I love to use the RCMA No Color Powder. But if you have dry skin the one thing you want to stay away from is adding so much powder to your skin. My best suggestion is to avoid baking and lightly add powder. Don’t add so much.
- Wet’n Wild Photo Focus Loose Setting Powder – is a good translucent powder. There are no flashbacks and if you don’t add so much powder to your skin, you won’t look dry. It’s weightless and gives a sheer finish. It does help blur your imperfections.
- Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Powder – Another great brand and product to use when setting your foundation/concealer. It has a micro-refined spherical silica that helps create a soft-focus, diminishing the look of fine lines and imperfections while smoothing skin.
When you are using a setting spray you want to use a setting spray that’s going to give you a dewy and glowy finish.
- Catrice Dewy Glow Fixing Spray – Another goodie I use in my freelance kit. It smells good and definitely hydrates the skin while giving a glowy finish. It does make your makeup last longer as well.
- Urban Decay Chill – This setting spray is so hydrating. It has a cooling time-release temperature control technology that actually chills your skin once applied. It makes your makeup last up to 12 hours.
