Dry eyelids can be flaky and red, ruining even the most diligent eye makeup application. Here's how to choose eye makeup that looks beautiful and doesn't irritate dry lids.
The delicate skin surrounding your eyes is thinner than the skin on the rest of your face, making the former especially vulnerable to dryness and flaking. If your skin is sensitive, you may also find that moisturising the eye area safely and effectively is challenging.
The right eye makeup for dry skin offers a flawless finish without highlighting flakes or settling into fine lines. But as always, beauty begins with proper skincare and self-care.
More Than Makeup: Prep Your Skin
You probably already know that moisturiser is the key to happy dry skin. What you might not realise is that your usual lotion is probably not right for your eyes.
Select a cream or gel moisturiser formulated for the eye area. Such products are both richer than face lotions and slightly less irritating to delicate skin. Avène Soothing Eye Contour Cream offers protective hydration while reducing dark circles and puffiness.
