Finding a foundation that doesn't cling on to parched patches of skin or accentuate flaky areas is no mean feat.
We've found the best full-coverage foundations, the best foundation for acne and even the all-time make-up artist approved best foundation ever. But when our skin's feeling a little parched and we can't bear to see our forehead foundation flake off a mere ten minutes after applying it, we need something more specific.
Enter our best foundation for dry skin edit. From water-based to oil-free, barely-there to luxuriously creamy, these are the ones you should be investing in.More
Dewy, supermodel skin is finally within touching distance thanks to Laura Mercier's Candleglow, which lends even the driest of complexions a lit-from-within finish. Purified water and a megamix of nourishing oils act like a shield against the elements so your base stays as seamless as when you first applied it and your skin looks, and feels, plump and nourished.
Like an Instagram filter in a bottle, Charlotte Tilbury's Light Wonder Foundation meshes with the skin without collecting in dry areas. Weightless in texture, it also floats over deep lines and hides sallow tones from plain view and that's all down to the retinol-like ingredients and ultra-moisturising properties.
