Advice needed with foundation!

Recommended Posts

Hi,  I have very dry skin and have been trying to find a foundation that doesnt make my skin flake up and dry up. However all the foundations that I tried(for dry skin- drugstore and high end) still make my skin flaky. I have attached a photo (hopefully you will be able to see it properly) of how my face looks. Epsecially around my nose and mouth. I apply moisturiser, primer and then foundation and I seal it with powder or setting spray. Does anyone know how I can stop this happening? 

Thanks

I'll just let you know what works for me in this case and it's up to you to decide..... May be you'll just try.....

 

1. Hydratation is the most important: 2 litters of water a day. On top of that for every cup of coffee consumed drink a cup of water.

2. Skin prep. Exfoliate. Depending on your skin of course.... But I go at least 1 time a week with a scrub. Also once a week I'll go for a cleansing mask. Usually it's clay of charcoal.... can be a peel-off mask.

3. Choose foundation you like. From higher end my fav would be Shameless by Mark Jacobs (the most beautiful one! better than my Dior Nude - same price point) The drugstore I like now is Wet'n'Wild Photo Finish!!! Soooo good! 

4. Oil!!! If you'll mix 1 drop of face oil (Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate - the one I use right now, but you can find it in a lot of brands e.g. Physitian's Formula, Urban decay, Tart) into foundation (put some on the tray or small plate and mix together)

5. At the end of makeup use setting spray, moisturizing spray .... of your choice......

 

These are the steps working for me..... Hope it was helpful. Let me know! Good Luck!!

Thank you I will definietly try it. I do drink loads of water, but I don't exfoliate so maybe that's where I'm going wrong. Thank you for your advice

Hey!

I have drier skin too and I had the same problem with flaking (especially when I travel).

The product that will work best for you is the Clinique Moisture Surge moisturizer and spray. They are life savers.

Also look into Sunday Riley's Good Genes treatment (very good for dry skin). You should try it with the oil, link is here

For primer I think the Laura Mercier primer will work well. Link to Sephora here 

Also for nighttime try the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask, link here

I use a cushion type foundation links here and here

I hope those help! You should also check out my blog, I have a lot of product reviews and 99% of my products are based for dry skin: https://www.upsnaapicks.com/

i suggest you a very simple natural tip that is focusing on skin cleanining & moisturizing : try moroccan rhassoul clay mixed with rose water and Argan oil. It will clean perfectly your skin and also moisturize it without leaving any oil residue. Apply the mask and leave on 10 minutes, then rinse. Dry lightly with cotton towel and apply 2/3 drops of argan oil on your face. you can use this mask safely twice a week.

For your makeup routine, apply 2/3 drops of Argan oil on your face, wait 5 minutes then you can apply your fondation. Your problem will be solved!!

    • Various social media sites, without a doubt. For example, if you want to reach the teenage audience, you may try TikTok as it's a big hit with teenagers. And it can have even a wider reach if they download your videos for some reason. By the way, if you want to try it out, you can try downloading them here. This new approach helped me a lot, personally.
    • As one of the options for quick money I can also recommend Delta Car Wreckers - it's a nice, reliable company and they pay well. I never thought I'd get so much for my old car and now I have enough funds for renovation/new car/moving, you name it... A lot of good deals there.
