Finding a Full-Coverage Foundation for Dry Skin Was Hard—Until Now
Finding full-coverage foundation that doesn't cake and crack on your face feels like a fool's errand—the two consistently seem to go hand in hand. Add dry skin into the mix, and you've got yourself a seemingly impossible situation. Except there is a solution.
A few products (six, if we're being specific) offer both the coverage you crave and treat your dry skin with the care and moisture it needs. Below, we list off our top picks as well as the reasons we love them. Keep reading for your new miracle foundation. (Spoiler: Two of them are less than $20.)
Elf Moisturizing Foundation Stick ($16)
Glide this creamy foundation stick across your skin for a mix of moisturising ingredients like shea butter, vitamin E, avocado, and aloe as well as soft, smooth, natural-looking coverage. It's easy to apply and even easier to maintain (it'll last all day and never cake up).
Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Cream Foundation ($175)
For a truly luxurious, moisturising, and full-coverage formula in one little package, look no further than Clé de Peau's cream foundation. It exudes a dewy glow the second you apply it and even works to retexturise your skin to reduce the appearance of discoloration and fine lines.
Lancôme Absolue Sublime Cream Foundation ($150)
Because of its Pro-Xylane-enriched formula, this full-coverage cream foundation actually helps restore essential moisture to your skin. It's infused with the Absolue serum as well, giving your dry skin a huge hit of nutrients. Blend it on with a damp makeup sponge and watch your skin plump up instantly.
Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation ($67)
This one was specifically designed with your selfies in mind—yes, you read that correctly. The formulation took into account the way skin looks on camera and works to keep your skin flawless under the lights. Moreover, it gives a second-skin texture and offers time-released hyaluronic acid spheres to keep your skin hydrated throughout the day.
