Best Makeup for Dry Skin

Best Makeup for Dry Skin

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.

  • Revlon PhotoReady Glow Hydrating + Illuminating Primer– This primer is a lightweight primer. It’s a water based primer infused with encapsulated oil beads, luminous quartz, and skin conditioning extracts! Your skin is going to look glowy and hydrated. I do have this in my makeup bag for my clients with dry skin.
  • Laura Mercier Hydrating Primer– Amazing high-end hydrating primer. Not only is it lightweight, it blurs the appearance of pores & imperfections for a soft-focus effect on the skin.



  • e.l.f. Cosmetics Hydrating Camo Concealer– I was so happy when e.l.f. cosmetics launched a hydrating version of the camo concealer because the other one was more of a matte version. That didn’t work well with dry skin people.
  • 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.

Setting Powders:

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 micro-refined spherical silica that helps create a soft focus, diminishing the look of fine lines and imperfections while smoothing skin.

Setting Sprays:

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.
  • Morphe Luminious Setting Spray You need this. It gives a beautiful natural glow without the glitter. Makes your face looks hydrated.
