Introducing Makeup Tip Monday! Getting Foundation to Work On Dry Skin

I am trying out a new concept...Makeup Tip Mondays! Every Monday I will be sharing a tip with you that I have personally tried and tested.

Today's tip is all about getting a smooth skin look when using a foundation that emphasizes dry skin. Perhaps you have the perfect foundation in the spring and summer, but come winter it starts to bring out the dryness and look a bit flaky. Or maybe you bought a formula that is meant for oily skin and you have dry skin. What do you so?

Use a makeup primer with silicon. The silicon helps create a smooth barrier on top of the skin, which prevents the look of dryness, and creates a silky, even base for foundation. My personal pick? The original Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer.


  1. Thanks for the tip! I have a trial size of the Smashbox primer that I will have to try out.

  2. I was very impressed with the SKII Facial Treatment Essence (, enough so that I have continued to use the product daily as part of my skin care routine after the test period. It's a luxury purchase to be sure, but this is one of the best products that can really make a significant difference in your skin, and so worth every penny.

    I applied the treatment each morning and evening after cleansing my skin and before moisturizer/primer and then makeup. Within just a few days I could see that my skin was much more supple and smooth - particularly in the t-zone. After about two weeks, I loved the beautiful glow my skin had - even without makeup.
