I had previously written a post on “Best Drugstore Foundations for Oily Skin.” I thought of doing a similar one for dry skin too. If you have dry skin, you might have encountered problems of makeup sticking to dry patches, skin looking dull, and often foundation settling into fine lines. To ease your woes of finding the best base makeup to look fab and flawless, I am here with a list of the best foundations for dry skin. Have a look:
True to its name, this foundation would impart a satin finish to the skin. It has sheer to medium coverage, so it would never gives a “heavy, caked up” look to your face. You wouldn’t feel the need to moisturize your face prior to wearing this foundation. The good news is that it doesn’t make your skin feel stretchy or uneasy. The “dewy, glowy, hydrated” look it imparts, might just be right for you dry skin beauties. Plus, MAC never disappoints with its shade selection, so you will definitely find a shade that is your true match.
2. Lotus Herbals Ecostay Nourishing Foundation:
Even Rati mam was “heads-over-heels” in love with this Lotus Ecostay Foundation. It’s a comfortable formula with medium to full coverage. It goes on smoothly and stays on all day long. Never settles into fine lines. It does not make your skin look or feel dry. The velvety matte finish and added SPF might make it your favorite day-time foundation too.
3. Maybelline Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation:
The soft, mousse-like texture of this hydrating foundation from our all-time favorite brand Maybelline is great for dry skin. It is quite lightweight and blends easily into the skin. It feels moisturizing on the skin, but at the same time, it settles down to a lovely matte finish. The foundation does not cling to the dry areas of my cheeks and provides an even and smooth canvas for other makeup to glide on. With good staying power and natural appearance on skin, this might just be the drugstore BFF you are looking for.
4. Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF 15:
If you want a foundation with medium coverage but great hydration, this gem from Bobbi Brown is just the one. It’s really moisturizing and imparts a really healthy glow to the skin. It just instantly plumps up the skin, leaving it moisturized and beautiful. It also adds just the perfect glow to the skin. It helps your skin breathe while giving a smooth natural look.
5. Dior Capture Totale Triple Correcting Serum Foundation:
If you want to pamper and protect your skin, all with makeup on, this bottle is a must for you. It can actually make any dull, dry skin look hydrated and brighten it up. For our reviewer, it covers redness, makes her acne scars look faded and gives her skin a “glow from within” look.
6. The Body Shop Fresh Nude Foundation:
Enriched with English rose water and aloe vera, this hydrating formula leaves skin feeling beautifully fresh and comfortable all day. It also contains SPF 15 to help protect your skin. With a semi-matte finish, it mimics the look of fresh-faced natural skin with a nude glow. The n*de foundation is very easy to blend and sinks into the skin flawlessly. It is a lightweight formula which feels very hydrating and comfortable without clogging the pores. You are definitely going to love the hydration and luminosity it will give you.

Made from a vitamin-rich fruit therapy formula for an even complexion and an instant anti-fatigue result, this serum gel foundation can be the answer to your prayers. Its fresh and instant blending gel texture gives an even, natural streak-free finish with no mask effect. Imperfections are erased, signs of fatigue are smoothed and the skin’s radiance is boosted for up to 16 hours. For a satin smooth look all around the year, dry skinned girls should definitely try this.
