Foundation for a dull or dry complexion


As a girl with dry/normal skin I love to sport a healthy glow whether it be in summer or winter to make me look more awake and healthy.

Maybelline Dream Creamy Foundation/ £8.19

As a pale girl I often struggle to find foundations that are light enough for me, let alone in a finish that I like, but Maybelline Dreamy Creamy of mine was a go-to of mine at the start of the year.

This foundation comes in a screw lid compact with a handy applicator sponge which is hidden in the lid. When applied with a brush (or with your fingers) this foundation applies and blends easily into the skin and gives a medium coverage.  If you have oily skin this would be a nightmare, purely because of how dewy your skin is left. Unofrtunately along with this comes oil which can shorten the wear of this foundation. A setting powder is required if you want at least 4 hour wear.

Bourjois Healthy Mix/ £9.99

I love this foundation. I find that when using this foundation, my dry skin is hydrated my face looks more awake and also more radiant.

This foundation is light-medium coverage and will cover my face redness. It feels lightweight on the skin and looks dewy, a perfect foundation for the summer.

I love that this foundation is in shades suitable for paler skin, which is often rare, but are all yellow toned. In saying this, I am pink toned and this still matches my skin colour. Unfortunately though, this foundation is not availible in darker shades,suitable for darker skintones.

This foundation claims to leave you with a glowing complexion for up to 16 hours which I definately agree with. A great foundation at an affordable £9.99

MAC Mineralize SPF Foundation/ £24.50

This foundation is one of MACs creme compact foundations that are easily buildable and leave an icredibly dewy finish.

"Lightweight and silky to apply. Good for all skin types; particularly benefits dull and/or dry complexions. Provides super-hydrated, high-comfort wear and everyday SPF 15 sun protection."

It does all that MAC claims and is very creamy and easy to blend into the skin. Only a little of this foundation is needed to give a medium coverage.

All of these foundations are perfect for those with dull/dry skin and will transform your complexion.
