How come when I apply foundation it looks dry? If you apply your makeup and your skin still looks dry, Stell suggests spraying on a plumping hydration mist. “Anything that has hyaluronic acid or vitamin E oil is best. It melts any powder products into your skin and gives your face that soft, glowing appearance.” Here’s how to get glowing skin naturally.
When I put foundation on my skin flakes? Sometimes, even the heaviest moisturiser may not cut it if the skin is too dry. If your base makeup separates in the day, apply a heavy cream (like Embryolisse or Weleda’s Skin Food) on the area, and then buff concealer on. The layer will stay sheer but smooth, so the flaky patch won’t show through.
Why does my foundation look dry and cracked? As stated before, it usually happens due to a lack of skin hydration. Our skin needs water, and when we use moisturizers, the skin absorbs the water from the moisturizer. If we skip this step and already apply the foundation, the skin will suck the water from the foundation. In this way, cracking occurs.
How do I make my foundation look dewy? The key to adjusting your matte foundation to more of a dewy, luminous finish is all in the glow-enhancing products you mix it with. Try a few drops of Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Dew Drops in your go-to matte foundation—it’ll bring a subtle, dewy effect to the finished look.
