Best Foundation For Dry Skin

Best Foundation For Dry Skin
If you have dry skin, you’ve probably found that some foundations can look patchy and cakey, emphasising the dryness. When it comes to finding the best foundation for dry skin, it’s worth opting for lighter, hydrating formulas that can be layered up where necessary. Here are the five foundations we highly recommend…


Future Skin Cushion Foundation, £ 130,00

The Best On-The-Go Foundation
Chantecaille’s Future Skin Cushion Foundation is water-based and helps keep your skin hydrated throughout the day. The light to medium coverage camouflages blemishes and uneven skin tone effortlessly and the compact case makes it handbag friendly.


Laura Mercier

Flawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation, £ 11,10

The Best Fuller Coverage Foundation
If you’re looking for a long-lasting, medium to full coverage foundation that won’t enhance dry, flaky skin, look to Laura Mercier Flawless Lumiere Radiance Perfecting Foundation. Infused with nourishing ingredients – including vitamin C – the formula provides 15 hours of hydration, so you don’t have to worry about your complexion looking patchy come four o’clock.



Sheer Glow Foundation, £ 35,00

The Best Radiance-Boosting Foundation
Dry skin can often appear dull, counteract this with NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, which leaves your skin with a gorgeous, illuminated finish. Infused with hydrating ingredients and antioxidants to protect, alongside turmeric to help even out skin tone, it’s kind to dry skin. While the coverage is light to medium, you can layer it up or use concealer where needed underneath.


By Terry

Hyaluronic Hydra Foundation SPF30, £ 53,00

The Best Hydrating Foundation
Jam packed with hyaluronic acid AKA the superhero hydrating ingredient, By Terry’s Hyaluronic Hydra Foundation is hands-down one of the best foundations out there for dry skin. The lightweight, liquid formula glides onto skin and disguises redness, blemishes and dark spots without looking cakey and feeling mask-like. Plus, it provides addition SPF 30 protection.


IT Cosmetics

CC+ Cream Original SPF50+, £ 36,50

The Best Foundation For Sensitive Skin
OK, so IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream Original isn’t a traditional foundation, but it is genuinely the best base for sensitive skin and as dryness often goes hand-in-hand with rosacea and sensitivity we felt it was worthy of inclusion.
