Overly dry skin has the po­ten­tial to be an ab­so­lute night­mare, es­pe­cially when it comes to nail­ing that flaw­less base. Thank­fully, we’ve tried and tested a bang­ing rou­tine. Start with a mois­turiser be­fore go­ing in with a hy­drat­ing primer. Use fin­ger­tips to smooth across the face and help prep the skin for foun­da­tion by cre­at­ing an even base. A great primer for dry skin should con­tain re­flec­tive par­ti­cles, which will lift a dull com­plex­ion, so look for key words such as hy­drat­ing, il­lu­mi­nat­ing and mois­tur­is­ing. Take time to let the primer soak into the skin – your com­plex­ion will look in­stantly fresher. Next, opt for a bright­en­ing foun­da­tion. Less is more when it comes to dry skin, so use spar­ingly and blend well with a stip­pling brush. Still in need of ex­tra cov­er­age? Use a highly pig­mented con­cealer to dis­guise any blem­ishes. Fi­nally, lift your look with a high­lighter. Gen­tly dab across cheek­bones, over the Cupid’s bow and un­der eye­brows for a soft, ra­di­ant fin­ish.
