5 Tips for Wearing Makeup on Dry Skin

Preparing Makeup brushes in Toronto.

Expert Advice from a Leading Esthetician School in Toronto, Ontario

Whether your skin is naturally dry or just parched because of the cold weather, wearing makeup and having it looking fresh all day can be a challenge. Luckily, it is a problem that can be fixed. With the right makeup application tips, you can avoid concealer cracking, foundation flaking and all the problems associated with applying makeup on dry skin.

Here are some tips from the expert team at Canadian Beauty College, one of the best esthetician schools in Toronto. Follow these effective techniques and tips for applying makeup on dry skin to see radiant, glowing skin.

  • Exfoliate and cleanse with care – Applying makeup to flaky skin only accentuates the flakes. As such, you should always remove the dead cells and all traces of makeup from your skin surface every night and at the beginning of your makeup routine. Use an exfoliating tool or washcloth to gently scrub your chin, nose and other areas of your face prone to dryness. Your choice of cleanser should have no harsh agents. Bars or oil-based cleansers are excellent choices.
  • Hydrate your skin – The next step is moisturizing your skin. A moisturized, glowing skin translates to glowing makeup. Do not use petroleum-based products that will sit on your skin and make it greasy. Instead, choose a fast-absorbing serum that can be quickly absorbed into the skin delivering immediate hydration. Note that a foundation is not a moisturizer; the two play distinct roles.
  • Use a Primer – Skin care specialists from Canadian Beauty College stress the importance of using a primer. The role of a primer is to give your skin a smooth, flawless finish and to keep your makeup on for longer. A well-primed face will have smoothed out pores and imperfections giving it an even, seamless look.
  • Choice of concealer and foundation – For dry skin, blemish concealers and creamy foundations work best. Avoid waterproof and oil-control products that will further dehydrate your skin. A super light, high definition foundation should give you maximum coverage for a flawless, natural-looking complexion. Finally, do not use your fingertips to apply your concealer or foundation. A gentle brush or sponge is preferable for each.
  • Use cream products and stay away from powders – Powder-based products, from foundation to blush, absorb moisture from your skin making it even drier. Use cream products that will not cake up on your dry skin. It is best always to use a beauty sponge to blend cream products and gently pat color onto your cheeks. If you cannot do without powder, use it only to finish and set your makeup by targeting specific areas of shine with a brush. Translucent finishing powders are recommended.

The secret to flawless skin is proper makeup application. For this, you only need a few essential products and the right technique. By taking a skincare specialist course from Canadian Beauty College, you can become an expert makeup artist for all skin types. Our school offers a range of esthetician courses specifically designed to equip students to surpass their career goals.
