It’s not easy to find a full coverage foundation for dry skin types. Why is that? Due to the tendency of full coverage foundation which is creamy and powdery so it is more difficult to stick well on dry skin if not, in certain parts of the face such as smile lines and under the eyes will usually crease.
Well, here are 3 recommendations for a full coverage foundation for those of you who have dry skin types.
Wet N Wild Photofocus Foundation
Many say this foundation is a dupe of Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Foundation. But I myself have never tried Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation. The Wet N Wild Photofocus Foundation has a semi-matte texture and has fairly high coverage, but it is still suitable for my dry skin type. As the name suggests, the Photofocus Foundation, this foundation does look great in photos. My face looks matte, neat, flawless, and pores are obscured.
There are many shading choices from this foundation, from light to dark skin, to cool undertones to warm undertones. So do not worry if there is no shade that is suitable for your skin. I myself am very suited to the shade of Soft Beige, the medium tends to be bright with yellow undertone.
The weakness of this foundation is the formula that feels “heavy” when used. Indeed, the face looks very flawless, but also very visible when you’re wearing foundation. This foundation is equipped with a spatula on the lid, which for some people feels less hygienic. I myself also prefer if this foundation uses a pump applicator anyway. And in some people, the scent of this foundation is disturbing, even though it’s not mine.
Milani Conceal Perfect 2-In-1 Foundation and Concealer
From the reviews I read, this foundation is full coverage and matte finish. Yes, I agree that the foundation is full coverage, but the end result is not matte. In fact, my fall tends to be a little dewy. I don’t think there is any oil control either, because, in just a few hours, my nose area has released a little oil, which is very rare if I use the Wet N Wild Photofocus Foundation or the LT Pro Smooth Corector Cream Foundation. If I really like the results that are dewy and have no problems with oil control.
The packaging is good and looks expensive, with an easy-to-use pump applicator. But the drawback, this foundation oxidizes and the choice of shades is mostly not suitable for warm undertone skin. So on the yellow skin, it often looks grayish. But if you can find the right shade, this foundation is a good option for owners of dry skin.
Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
This foundation is my all-time favorite! The texture is not too thick and not too runny, light on the face, and has a delicious fruity aroma. The finish is also very fitting, making the skin look fresher with a little sparkle, but also not over glowy. Coverage is medium but buildable and not easy to cakey. I think even oily skin owners will still be able to use this foundation because the results are not too dewy. For oily skin owners who don’t really like the results of a matte finish foundation, this foundation can be tried.
