5 Tips for Applying Makeup to Dry Skin


3
Use Creamy Blush and Eye Shadow

Makeup artistry is about playing up your better features and minimizing any flaws. But powdery makeup will cake up on dry skin and draw attention to lines, creases and wrinkles. Go with creamy cheek and eye colors to harmonize with your satiny cosmetic foundation. Accentuate your cheekbones by applying shimmering pale pink, gold or bronze blush, but keep those metallic tints away from your eyes if you have wrinkles there. As with applying foundation, resist the temptation to use your fingertips to put on blush and eye shadow. Go with a blush brush and eye shadow brushes to smooth on creams without roughing up your delicate skin.
