Lasting Looks for Dry Skin

A skin care plan that moisturizes your skin is the best first step when you're battling dry patches. Good makeup choices can fight dryness and keep your look fresh longer. For those with very dry skin, Siller suggests a buildable tinted moisturizer in place of foundation.

Rae suggests using a cream foundation, blush, and bronzer. Then top it off with a translucent powder for staying power.

To stop flakiness on the spot, Bennett suggests you gently pat moisturizer directly on trouble spots and allow a few minutes for it to absorb.  Then use a makeup sponge to reblend, and you can add a little extra foundation if needed.
