DFW Beauty Guide: Makeup for Dry Skin

dfw beauty guide - dry skin

On both dry and oil ends of the spectrum, it is important to keep in mind that our skin is an 
important canvas for a flawless makeup look. We must take good care of our skin and below are a few tips on how to do so for those with dry skin!


I don’t think anyone can stress enough how important h2o is! Water helps you from the inside 
out! Drinking water helps flush out all the bad things in your body. Up to 60% of our bodies are
made of water. It is recommended to drink 8 cups of water a day. To help you remember to 
drink the recommended amount of water in one day, try using a half gallon water jug filled in the morning, and work your way to finishing that throughout the day. If you are a coffee drinker as me, coffee dehydrates you! So for every cup of coffee you drink, double your cup of water 
afterwards to make up for the dehydration. 


Avoid using an cleansers with harsh agents because those can actually make your skin more 
dry. Look for gentle cleansers with oil based or cleansing bars such as Dove Sensitive Beauty 
Bar to cleanse your face. 

Tip: Oil cleansers doubles as a makeup remover so you can skip a step in your cleansing 

Skin Prep

Smooth skin is essential to makeup application. Your exfoliating tool is your best friend! Prior to makeup application, save the heavy face creams for night time and use a light day cream such as Naturally Lindy’s Cellular Day Cream during the day. To keep your makeup intact, use a hydrating foundation primer such as Laura Mercier’s Hydrating Foundation Primer. Don’t forget your Lips!

Along with dry skin comes with chapped lips! The harsh cold can do some major damage to 
your lips if you don’t maintain its health. Neosporin Lip Health Daily Hydration Therapy has a 
unique combination of antioxidants and essential lipids to help strengthen your lips. SPF 20 is a great bonus!
