Skin type is defined by two things: genetics and oil production. Your predisposition to a skin type is not something that you can change, so it’s important to balance your skin with nourishing products. You want your makeup to be an extension of your skincare, so if you have dry or dehydrated skin, look for hydrating, moisturizing mineral makeup that will cover, correct and protect your skin.
Foundation for Dry Skin
The key to a perfect base application is using primer. Face Primer creates a smooth, even canvas for foundation by blurring fine lines and visible pores.
Next, select a foundation that has skin-healthy, hydrating ingredients and a finish that will work with your skin’s dry texture. Glo Skin Beauty has four base options for dry skin with three different finishes: semi-matte, satin or dewy.
- Pressed Base is great for all skin types and gives a flawless, semi-matte finish with sheer to full coverage.
- Satin Cream Foundation is suitable for normal to dry skin and offers medium to full coverage with a smooth, satin finish.
- Loose Base is great for normal to dry skin and gives a dewy finish with medium to full coverage.
- Luminous Liquid Foundation SPF 18 works for all but oily skin and provides sheer to medium coverage with a dewy finish.

Blush for Dry Skin
Creamy products will look and feel the best. Cream Blush gives you a long-lasting flush of color with a dewy look. Apply with the 203 Dual Fiber Face Brush or your fingers, dabbing the product on the apples of your cheeks and blending towards the temple. This blendable formula is forgiving, so if you apply too much you can just keep blending until you get a look you love.
Lipstick for Dry Skin
Before you start your makeup application, prep your lips with a thin layer of balm. Let the nourishing oils sink in while you do the rest of your makeup. Once your foundation, eye and cheeks are done, you can apply a moisturizing lip color. Lipstick is great for dry lips, but if you like an ultra-moist lip, try Cream Glaze Crayons or Lip Gloss for a high-shine look.
If your lips are properly conditioned and cared for, you may find that creamy matte lipsticks are wearable. Try exfoliating once a week with a gentle scrub to remove dead skin cell build-up. After rinsing the scrub off, immediately apply a rich balm to hydrate and protect.
It’s an amazing feeling to find makeup that works for you, but make sure you care for your skin with a daily regimen tailored to your skin’s needs. Learn about the difference between dry and dehydrated skin and how to treat both.
