How to Wear Foundation on Dry Skin

powder_300Winter dryness can make your regular beauty regimen a pain. If you normally wear foundation but are hesitant to wear it over flaky skin, follow this advice from  Liliana Grajales, a spa director and makeup artist based in South Beach, Miami:

• First, apply your daily moisturizer, and let it sink in completely, for at least five minutes.

• Using a foundation with a hydrating formula—Real Simple testers prefer Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Foundation ($59,—and gently apply as normal.

• Finally, lock your product with a translucent powder, which will help soak up oils that can accelerate fading.

    I use coconut oil, CapriClear as a moisturizer under my foundation! It really helps keep my skin soft and smooth!
