Ten Pro Make Up Tips For Dry Skin
Dry skin can cause temporary problems for some while for others it is permanent. It can get tricky especially if the skin in your face is dry. But having a dry skin doesn’t necessarily mean you can never have a glowing complexion. Try out these pro tips on how to apply makeup dry skin.
Moisturize before you apply any makeup
The reason why your makeup ends up looking like a cracked cake is due to lack of moisture. If your skin isn’t moist enough, you cannot achieve the results you want. Start by cleansing your face with facial products especially made for dry skin and apply moisturizer four to five minutes before you apply any makeup.
Use brush to apply foundation
Dry skin can cause irritation and make the skin look blemished. Look for a creamy foundation or blemish concealer whenever you buy one and apply it with a brush. Avoid the temptation to use fingers.
Choose creamy eye shadow and blush
To avoid your makeup to cake up on your dry face, always go for creamy eye shadow and blush. Avoid the powdered ones.
Apply liquid eyeliner
Avoid eye pencils as it can make your wrinkles stand out and add to fine lines. Go for liquid eyeliners instead to draw attention away from the lines around the eyes. Just make sure to replace the eye liner every three months.
Go for only light dusting of powder
Powders are just for finishing touch. After you apply your makeup use a large brush to dust loose powder onto your brow liner or mascara. This will keep your makeup intact.
Exfoliate your skin
If your skin is super dry it won’t hold moisture. Every once a week or so, exfoliate your lips and skin with mixture of honey and sugar. Honey will keep your skin hydrated while sugar will exfoliate the dry skin.
Avoid matte lipstick
Matte lipsticks are a big NO as it contributes to dry lips. Choose lip gloss or plain lipstick instead for a juicer looking lips.
Go for nice old Vaseline
Vaseline is best for those fighting to keep their lips moisturized. Dab Vaseline onto your fingers and apply it on your lips any time it feels chapped. You can apply it even before you go to bed.
Keep a toner handy
Whenever you travel or go out, always have a hydrating toner handy. Spray it over makeup to keep your skin balanced.
Apply liquid highlighter
For a dewy look, choose a liquid highlighter and dab few drops on your cheekbones. It will make your skin appear less dull.
