Ok I just purchased Bare Minerals makeup and really love the way it looks but theres one problem. I have very dry skin especially under my eyes. Well when I use the concealer, foundation, and powder...it seems to dry up under my eyes even more. I have even tried using moisturizer before I put anything on and it still does it. Does anyone else have this problem and how do you fix it???

The powder seems to soak up the moisturiser. I put my moisturisers on then go brush my teeth, get coffee, feed the cats, whatever... then put the foundation on. Gives the moisturiser time to soak in.

I have oily skin and am really not sure that powder foundations are good for dry skin.

Hey Dimples, welcome to MUT!

As a MUA, I honestly find that emollient (creamy) foundations are best for dry skin. Powder tends to sit on the surface of dry skin, making the skin appear even more dehydrated. Try a creamy foundation and if you need to set it, use sheer or translucent powder.

I used BE for awhile - Bisque, Mineral Veil, and the Mineral Foundation. I have normal skin, but the skin under my eyes is quite dry. Even with an emoillent eye cream, I still could not use Bisque under my eyes as concealor. I had much better luck using a creamy concealor in place of Bisque under my eyes - I found Bisque to work great on my face though. HTHS!

Thanks so much for your replies. I think you are probably right about powders not being meant for people with dry skin. I think I'll just use a cream concealer under my eyes and then use the foundation and powder on the rest of my face. Thanks again!!!!!

Does anyone else have this problem and how do you fix it??? Absolutely...Yeah, I have a little dry skin now...(& I've earned it over the years, - I'm entitled)...all the kidding aside....its very drying - granted this stuff is good for people with oily skin.....BUT.....with dry skin, it really doesaccents the flaws more so (you are very right on the money with that)...

However, I came up with a solution to it....After you put your moisturizer on,....put a light thin coat of liquid foundation on first...let it set....Then use your bare mineral makeup over it....100% better ! Hey, with the money you spent on the stuff., you gotta make it work for you - not against you!!...
