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!!

    • Whether you’re a college girl who will be waking up for an 8am class and going out at night, or a super mom who will be juggling work, taking her kids to school, making dinner, and soccer games, makeup that lasts all day is extremely beneficial! Who wants to worry about reapplying five times a day? If you follow these tips, you can put on your makeup in the morning and not have to worry about those annoying touch ups! Start With a Clean Face Applying makeup to a fresh face is the best way to make it last. Make sure you remove your makeup at night and then wash your face in the morning before putting on your makeup. It’s also a great idea to use a good moisturizer, such as our Citrus Stem Cell Intense Moisture Lock Creme. It helps improve skin’s complexion, elasticity, and texture, and also smooths wrinkles. Use a Primer – On Your Face and Your Lids Makeup primer makes the perfect base because it helps minimize pores, erase imperfections, and makes your makeup look better and last longer. Make sure aside from using a basic primer that you use an eye primer as well. It’s a must if you are wearing eyeshadow or liner so that it looks as clean and crisp at night as it did when you first put it on! Choose Oil-Free, Long Lasting Products The products you choose make a huge difference. Products that aren’t oil-free may not last as long because the oils will eventually make them fade. Go ahead and spend that extra $2 for the foundation that says “long lasting.” It’s worth it! Don’t Forget Pressed Powder and Setting Spray  Once your look is complete, finish your look with a pressed finishing powder and setting spray! These products are designed to keep your makeup in place and also help remove any excess oil. Keep Your Hands Away From the Finished Product Try not to touch your face throughout the day! Not only can touching your face lead to breakouts, but the oils on your skin will remove your makeup.
    • Hey, if you didn't back up your data, according to my experience and your information, I would like to suggest you use Android Data Recovery from Uneraser to assist you to recuperate your deleted photo recovery, which is very useful and practical. Hoping it will work for you and you could retrieve deleted photos from phone successfully.
