Dry skin sufferers can find it had to find the right foundation, most liquids can draw attention to the dry skin & create an uneven patch effect to the finish. Here are some top products that have been tried & tested and come up trumps for dry skin!
Firstly before applying your foundation it is best of course to use a good moisturiser, these are two of the best moisturisers I found to try out for dry skin, the Body Shop's Jojoba Hydrating Day Cream (£7.50) as well as Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion (from £15), but also apply a Primer to create an even base for your foundation which will also help prevent patches, try Laura Mercier's Primer (£27) or Mac's Prep & Prime Primer (£16).
Id Bare Escentuals (£17) came top of the list for dry skin, it covers evenly & as it is gentle on the skin can help with dryness as well as giving a healthy glow to the finish.
Maybelline Dream Matte Mouse (£6.99) is another winner & creates a light weight finish that doesn't cake or draw attention to any dry areas.
Finally Mac Moistureblend Foundation (£20.50) this is a compact foundation that provides excellent moisture to dry skin & gives a smooth even finish.
