Prepare your skin for makeup
Before applying makeup your skin needs a preparation, and if you have a dry skin, the preparation is vitally important. After taking a bath, apply a rich cream, the nourishing ingredient of which will soften your skin. If you use it regularly the result will be not momentary but long lasting. You can also start first with a moisturising spritz, followed by the cream.
Cleanse your face
Every time you start doing makeup, your face must be crystal clear. There are many types of moisturizers and cleansers that are made especially for dry skin. Try to buy an oily moisturizer. Clean your face and make it ready for makeup!
Concealer camouflages any skin imperfections, eliminates redness and covers the under eye circles. In general, concealer makes your makeup complete and accurate. It’s especially recommendable for dry skin, as it creates the perfect base for a flawless makeup look. Apply it before the foundation and use a concealer that matches your skin tone not to make it visible.
The important thing about the foundation is its formula. If your skin is dry and flaky, avoid using powder foundation. Just imagine what result you will have using powdery foundation on a dry skin! It will just worsen the condition, making your skin even drier and duller. So, opt for a liquid foundation and one that contains natural nourishing ingredients. Also avoid powder application after the foundation.
Contour the cheeks
For defined cheekbones, here your fingers come to help you. You may also use brush but probably it will leave some dusty leftovers on your cheeks. It just aggravates the cheek area, so try to use fingers for bending the blush and at the end with circular motions make it even for the entire cheekbone zone.
Lips should always be smooth and soft, but many aspects affect it and they become dry and crumbly. There are many moisturizing lip balms that may be applied from time to time instead of lipstick. When you feel that your lips come to their normal state, you may reduce their usage and go for lipsticks more often. However, there are lipsticks that contain special ingredients that protect your lips from any external harmful influences and keep them soft throughout the day.
