How To Prep And Apply Makeup On Dry/flakey Skin
Before your moisturise and apply makeup it is important to exfoliate all the dead skin off your face. But don't rub to hard when exfoliating as you may irritate the other layer of skin underneath. Try Dark Angels by lush. It is a simple exfoliator appropriate for dry and irritated skin
It is important to moisturise before your makeup and you need to leave it afterwards for about 30mins to let it sink in to your skin. This moisturiser is great. Another tip when applying your face moisturiser is to massage it in to your skin
Your eyes are very sensitive so it is important to have a different moisturiser for your eyes. Face moisturisers can be to heavy and harsh on your eye area. Try dermalogica eye repair
After you've moisturised, priming comes next. This will help hold moister in, prolong your foundation and also stops the look of dry skin
BB creams are a good source of coverage when you have dry skin as they are a moisturiser as well as a foundation. I love this BB creams as it has the coverage of a normal foundation
If your not keen on BB creams and like to stick to foundations try this smash box foundation. It is perfect for dry skin. But if this is a bit out of your price range try 'fit me' foundation by maybelline which is very similar
A good concealer for dry skin (especially around the eye area) is fake up by benefit. It has a ring of moisturiser around the concealer which helps moisturise your eyes
The problem with using foundation brushes on dry skin is the it can exfoliate the skin more causing it to look dryer and appearance of dry flakey skin. But if you don't want to part from your makeup brushes try a 'finishing brush'. It is very soft and it kinder to the skin. Apply in dabbing motions
Makeup sponges are a excellent way of apply makeup to dry skin. They don't irate and exfoliate the skin like makeup brushes do
After you've finished your makeup use a setting spray. This will hold everything in place and help stop the appearance of dry flakey skin.
