I’ve had dried out skin all my life, but I didn’t really realize it until I began to try wearing makeup. I remember while i had a makeover done in university, and the products looked positively terrible on my skin: caked-on and flakey and bad. I couldn’t wait around to wash it off. The makeup artist said it would look better once I handled my skin (I’m not kidding) and, while I didn’t appreciate her blaming me on her behalf poor application, it helped me realize I had formed dry skin.
Of course, this experience didn’t exactly encourage me to wear makeup so that it was some more years before I began to figure things out. Now that I’ve been wearing makeup regularly for years, in addition to writing about it and trying out tons of different makeup and skincare products, I finally know very well what works for my dry epidermis.
Getting makeup to look good on dried out skin takes a mixture of skincare and the right products. You can’t do nothing for your skin layer and then awaken each day and throw any type of base on and expect it to look good. Dry skin requires some TLC as well as some advance planning.
