Worried about dry skin and thinking how to manage make-up on your skin? Is your skin parched? You can nourish it while keeping your makeup looking fresh all day. Some types of cosmetics will help more than others, but the difference starts with how you care for your skin before you reach for your makeup.

Dull, flaky and ruddy—they may sound like the missing Seven Dwarfs, but they’re actually words that are often used to describe dry skin your best beauty regimen is one that infuses parched skin with moisture and masks any redness, leaving you with a glowing, gorgeous complexion.

The challenge creating a smooth hydrated canvas so foundation glides on and doesn’t settle into fine lines. The upside of a parched complexion is that you’re not plagued with a shiny T-zone, so you don’t have to slap on powder throughout the day. And since you tend to have fewer breakouts and (lucky you!) smaller pores, you don’t have to be heavy-handed when applying concealer.


The science it’s possible that due to age or genetics your sebaceous glands aren’t pumping out enough oil. According to Leslie Baumann, M.D., director of the University of Miami’s Cosmetic Medicine and Research Institute and author of “The Skin Type Solution,” the most likely reason for tight, flaky skin is a damaged protective barrier. The stratum corneum, your skin’s outermost layer, is made up of overlapping dead cells that seal moisture into the skin. Hot water, cold, dry air or harsh cleansers and scrubs can cause the stratum corneum to break down. The result? Your skin loses the moisture it needs to stay supple.

Below are the few make-up tips for dry skin which would help, make-up to stay longer time.


1. Look for liquids and creams.

If your skin is prone to flaking or dry patches, use liquid or cream foundations that contain oil. Don’t need a lot of coverage? Try a tinted moisturizer, which is like a sheer foundation, instead. However, if you have a dry skin type, it’s important that your tinted moisturizer not replace a regular moisturizer. Another option is beauty balm (a.k.a. BB cream). The multitasking product not only provides a hint of coverage, but it also contains good-for-skin hydrating ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid and vitamin B.


2.  Smooth your smacker.

Dead, dry skin can’t hold moisture, or your lip gloss. Exfoliate your lips once a week with a homemade mixture of sugar and honey. Sugar sloughs off the dead skin, while honey hydrates. You can also use a damp toothbrush (without toothpaste) to gently scrub the skin on your lips.


3.  Choose the right lip formula.

If your lips get dry easily, avoid matte lipstick or long-wearing formulas, as they will contribute to dryness. Stick to lip gloss or sheer lipstick. Both make your lips look and feel juicier. Apply Lip care or lip balm before using lip stick it will help lip stick to stay for long time.


4.  Pass on the powder.

No matter what the sales person at the cosmetics counter tells you, if your skin is prone to flaking you do not need to wear powder, says Boston makeup artist Dana Chasen Thomases. If your skin is dry, but you occasionally get shiny in your T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin), you can dust a bit of powder just in the center of your face over those areas. Otherwise, skip it altogether.


5.  Add a face polisher to the mix.

If you notice your makeup begins to flake a couple of hours after you’ve applied it, chances are a buildup of dead skin is to blame. Add a gentle facial exfoliant into your weekly skin care routine and remember to moisturize daily. It’s important to exfoliate to remove some of the dead skin layer, and then hydrate the more active layers underneath, says Elizabeth Tanzi, MD, a cosmetic dermatologist in Washington, D.C.


6.  Tote an instant skin refresher with you.

For a midday moisture boost, you can carry a travel-sized hydrating toner. A few spritzes over your makeup will help balance dry skin and keep your makeup from flaking off.


7.  Don’t skimp on moisturizer.

By definition, dry skin produces very little oil, so using moisturizer to help balance your skin’s natural dryness is essential. Instead of a lotion, use a thicker cream that specifically caters to dry skin types. Moisturizers or serums that contain hyaluronic acid, an ingredient that helps skin retain moisture, can also be helpful. “On dry skin types, moisturizer should be applied all over the face, including the neck and décolletage,” Chasen Thomas’s says.


8.  Drink more water.

If your skin and lips tend to be dry, it might help to examine your diet. Are you drinking enough water? A diet filled with a lot of caffeine, alcohol, or sugar could be contributing to your lips feeling parched.


9. Cleansing face.

Wash your face with any fruit based face cleansers, having moderate proportion of moisturizer. Always clean your face with suited cleanser before applying make-up, it helps make-up to spread evenly and neatly stays for long time.


10. Follow up with perfect night routine.

Massage glycerin mixed with water on skin every night. You can even mix 2-4 drops of olive oil with it.


11. Get the sheen on.

Get the extra oily sheen with body glitter powder. Just a swipe and you are good to go.
