The best foundation for dry skin needs to be pumped up with some sort of hydration factor, otherwise, it’s going to flake off you face. Trust me, I’ve done the brutal research for you, and it wasn’t pretty.
As someone with chronically dry skin that drinks up hyaluronic acid and heavy face creams on a daily basis, I can vouch that the below foundation formulas all even out your skin tone beautifully, but don’t suck all the moisture out of your skin, leaving it dry, red, and irritated. Another bonus? You don’t have to worry about the foundation pigment settling into wrinkles and fine lines.
And because we all have different needs and preferences, I rounded up full-coverage foundation options, buildable formulas that still let your natural skin shine through, pricier options if you’re feeling like a splurge, and drugstore buys you can always count on.
Smooth, lightweight, and easy-to-blend, keep scrolling to shop the 10 best foundations for dry skin.
