Shop Makeup For Dry Skin

Finding the right makeup for dry skin is essential - it's surprising how many formulas can cling unflatteringly to dry areas, or look too "flat" rather than like skin. Those of us with dry skin at Adore Beauty have put together a list of our favourite products.


From light coverage to full, from primers to setting sprays, we've got dry skin covered. After moisturising, apply a primer made to hydrate the skin. This will keep your skin from looking flat or full throughout the day, while really locking in your makeup. Try going for a lighter coverage foundation with a dewy finish, and go back in with a high coverage concealer over any blemishes.

If your skin is too dry for powder, skip it completely! Or if you still get an oily T-zone, only apply powder where you need it. Try using a mineral powder over the top of tinted moisturiser, which will add just a bit of coverage but wont completely mattify your face.


And speaking of, try giving mineral powder a shot! Many new-generation mineral powders are made with skincare ingredients and emollients, so you may be very surprised at how flattering and hydrating they are.


A cream blush and contour will add dimension and colour. Look for creams that have a transparent base - think more like a jelly than a cream. Or try a liquid tint, which will last all day and give you a natural looking flush.


Don't forget - there are hydrating setting sprays that leave you with a dewy, hydrated finish and keep your makeup looking fresh.

nice foundation

I've been having trouble with liquid foundation going patchy so changed to mineral powder for a while, I really liked the DB mineral powder so thought I'd try this as a base for better coverage. It's really nice either under the mineral powder or on ours own. Seems to last a good part of the day & so far no patches. Skin feels silky with it on.

beautiful natural foundation

I don't wear much makeup but when I use this it feels like it evens out my skin tone and still looks really natural. in winter I notice I need to hydrate my skin more as the powder can look a bit cakey if I don't. but I definitely will be repurchasing this, it's such a beautiful product!

Second Skin

This is the god of all foundations. Literally like a second skin. Beautifully matte, yet dewy. Stays in place all day, doesn’t settle in fine lines. Blends amazingly with whatever products I put over it. Words cannot describe, I am blown away!
