Best Foundations for Dry Skin Drugstore Edition
It’s important to get your skin type right, because once you do it’s super easy to pick the best foundation for your skin! Choosing the right foundation not only helps your skin look flawless, but it’ll help the rest of your makeup play up your features just right. We’ve tested dozens of foundations on our resident dry skin expert, and here are the top five foundations that suited her best!
L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Serum Absolute Advanced Age-Reversing Makeup
Dry skin is more prone to wrinkles because it doesn’t retain moisture like normal or combination skin. Why not hit two birds with one stone, and combat wrinkles and dryness with one foundation? L’Oreal does a lot of things right for dry skin with this foundation. Combine it’s SPF, 24-hour wear-ability, and serum and you’ve got a fabulous foundation that enriches dry skin.
L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup
YouTube beauty gurus rave about this foundation. We love it. Readers love it. And yes, it truly is as good as we all say. True Match Lumi is made of 40% water, so it will, of course, hydrate your skin! Added vitamin E and C will help improve the texture of your skin, too. There are loads of different colors so the perfect shade for your skin tone is sure to be available in this foundation.
CoverGirl CG Smoothers All-Day Hydrating Makeup
This foundation is amazing for dry skin. It’s thin which makes your skin feel naked after application. Try a second later for medium to full coverage. One of our writer’s grandmothers used this foundation for over 50 years, and you’d never believe her results. Her first wrinkle came well after she turned 70. If that’s not a reason to try this foundation, what is?!
Maybelline Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation
Maybelline does an incredible job of creating dupes for high end foundations. This foundation feels way more luxurious than a drugstore brand typically does. It’s made up from premium ingredients and includes no oil. The medium coverage is perfect for dry skin, and it won’t settle into any texturized areas on your skin. Let your skin breath, hydrate, and feel refreshed with this foundation. It’s great for mature skin, too.
Revlon ColorStay Whipped Foundation
We’ve reviewed this foundation before, but that only proves it deserves to be on this list somewhere. Revlon’s Whipped Foundation is in a little jar that holds way more product than you’d expect. A little goes a long way, so you definitely get a bang for your buck here. It will withstand humidity (great for summer) and it’ll stay matte through the entire day. Unlike other mattifying foundations, this one won’t dry out your skin. In fact, it’s formulated so that your skin will appreciate it when you apply this foundation. It will melt into your skin and hydrate it all day long.
