If you suffer from dry or dehydrated skin, 90% of your skincare collection more than likely promises you hydration and moisture, and you’ll take as much of it as possible.
But when it comes to makeup, you’ll also need a boost of hydration to ensure that it doesn’t settle in the dry areas, or make you feel as your skin is just plain thirsty.
Working with cream products will be a great help, so switching from your regular bronzer and blush to cream-based products and only setting the areas with powder that you really need to, like your under-eye area.
But what about foundation? Well, here are some of our top picks for dry and dehydrated skin.
Sculpted by Aimee Tint and Glow
If you want something that’s light on the skin but will still leave you feeling and looking fresher, the Tint and Glow from Sculpted by Aimee is for you.
