"Hey. Do you have any advice on good primers for dry skin?"
Asked by laugh-love-eat-travel-shop
What most primers do is form a barrier that stays in place but because of this, they aren’t extremely effective moisturizers for very dry skins because any oil or heavier moisturizing ingredients can dissolve makeup and cause it to slip right off. The best thing to do is to use a 2-step process to condition your skin for makeup.
1. Add the moisture in. Use a good moisturizing serum or cream first (look for things that contain plenty of hyaluronic acid or even straight 100% argan oil, etc) and then let it sit and absorb.
If you used an oil based product, after about 5 minutes, you can massage gently to remove any flakes and then press a sheet of tissue over your face to suck up any excess oil.
