My Favorite Foundations for Dry Skin

When it comes to foundation, I have tried everything under the sun. Foundation is probably the most important part of a makeup look because it’s your base. Everything else is enhancement. I’m super picky about foundations because my skin is so fair and it’s very dry year-round. Never in a million years would I thought I could find a matte foundation that would work with my dry skin especially because I looove to look dewy. Alas, I’ve narrowed down some of my favorite current foundations, but I’m always looking to try more!

Diorskin Forever Perfect Foundation– I jumped on the Jaclyn Hill bandwagon with this one. The woman knows her stuff! I really do love the way this foundation looks on my skin, but (yes there’s a but) even their lightest shade is a tiny bit too dark. That being said, I still wear it and I mix a lighter shade foundation in with it. So, my fellow pale people may want to do the same. If you’re more tan or have deeper skin, this will look even better on you.

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation– Ahh the shade range! This full coverage beauty is actually one of my most recent finds. When I say full coverage, I mean FULL coverage. This is a heavy one, but doesn’t settle into fine lines. Despite being so heavy, it doesn’t really look cakey at all.

Yves Saint Laurent All Hours Foundation– Remember when I said I thought I would never fall in love with a matte foundation. Well, YSL stole my heart and the All Hours foundation became my ride or die favorite foundation. Yes it’s pricey, but OMG people! The finish is stunning! Much to my relief, it’s not too matte and it makes the skin look absolutely flawless. I’m already on my third bottle and I can honestly say that I would re-purchase time and time again.

MAC Mineralize Foundation– If you’re looking for a dewy foundation, look no further. This one is the dewiest foundation I’ve ever tried and it’s gorgeous and long lasting. It makes the skin look so  healthy and refreshed.

Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Foundation– Similar to the YSL foundation and a tiny bit more friendly on the wallet, this foundation is just as beautiful. This is another matte foundation, but not too cakey or heavy. I think it provides the best coverage and makes the skin look beautiful especially in photos!
