Everyone has experienced dry skin, seasonally or for every time. During the winter, getting that smooth and non-flaky skin can be difficult, especially if you're someone with dry skin that's also peeling or flaking. No matter how many layers of moisturizer you use, it can seem like your makeup feels caky and emphasizes the dry patches on your complexion. So, if you've tried to over-do your face multiple times, but you still feel like getting a smooth and even makeup application is impossible during the winter or colder months, then we've got you covered. Trust us, we have!
Here we’ll let you know the best tips and tricks for how to apply makeup on dry skin.
1.It’s the PREP time -
For getting that perfect and smooth skin, you need to start incorporating serums, moisturizers, and face mists into your daily routine which are infused with hydrating ingredients, like hyaluronic acid or hydrating ingredients.
*2. Exfoliation -
Exfoliation is one of the major aspects as our skin gets flaky and dry. Exfoliating your skin removes the dead skin layer so you can have a smooth skin beneath. After that, you can put a good layer of moisturizer to heal your skin due to exfoliation.
*3. Skip the heavy base -
Best way to get that hydrated dewy finish is to skip layering up on a full-coverage foundation in hopes of covering any dry patches, go with a lighter and hydrating formula like a tinted moisturizer, BB cream, or CC cream. This will prevent makeup clinging to dry flakes and will not give a cakey finish. For those severely dry patches, try applying heavy moisturizer before applying makeup.
*4. Think twice before applying compact/powders
You don't have to completely avoid or skip powder formulas even if you have a dry skin type. Be it having combination-to-dry skin or a matte finish, you can use a powder, but you have to be very particular and strategic about the placement to avoid the dry patches.
*5. Face mist is your best friend -
One of the best tips to make your makeup last longer and avoiding dry patches or flakes skin appearance throughout the day is to keep a face mist handy. One of the best tips is to keep your makeup smooth throughout the day during the winter is using a refreshing mist to help set the makeup and will hydrate the skin as well.
