I find that having dry skin can really get me down when I am trying to get that dewy make-up look. I have tried product after product and find that most make-up looks cakey and foundation emphasizes dry patches.
So, I have been on the hunt for products to help get that brightness back and to help make-up look glowing again.
The reason I chose this one was first off because I am a huge fan of Nivea skincare products, but also because I purchased the Nivea facial wipes for Dry/Sensitive skin a while back and I must say they are the best wipes I have ever bought. Not only did they remove make-up, but they hydrated my skin so I didn't even have to put moisturizer on after. Of course though, by morning my skin needs more moisture, so I bought it's sister product, Day Cream for Dry/Sensitive skin. If your skin breaks out like mine does, it's also best to use a product for sensitive skin as the ingredients don't irritate the skin the same.
Now you have your skin prepped, it's time to get the makeup side of things right. These are two of my favourite products. One thing I notice about the foundations for dry skin is they are extremely oily which can also make them too sheer. So what I do, is get one of my favourite foundations and mix it with either a highlighting cream or with a bit of moisturiser. This helps the make-up blend into your skin much easier and creates a more youthful look. (Try not to mattify everything with powder as it can dry you out hugely, instead, use a primer for staying power or a fixing spray at the end).
3. Finishing Up
This is a cheap version of the Benefit High Beam and I really like this product. This can be mixed with your foundation or just a few dabs on your cheek and brow arch can give a great effect too.
This is a product to keep your whole body moisturised. This will make your overall appearance brighter.
Baby Oil is brilliant because babys skin loses moisture a lot quicker then an adult, so this oil gives double the moisturiser of a normal lotion. I have bought the Oil Gel as i feel it absorbs into the skin a bit quicker. the packaging is bad though as it's hard to squeeze out! It also has Chamomile in to soothe the skin. (Can be used as a shaving oil/gel too!).
Hope this post has helped and enjoy getting glowing skin for cheap!
