As I struggle trying the find the right balance of moisture and oil control in a foundation for my skin, Winter takes place and turns my skin dry and dehydrated so a moisturising foundation is definitley the way forward. These are a selection of my favourite foundations I reach for when my skin needs a bit more moisture.

L'oreal true match foundation 
I was impressed by the wide range of shades this foundation was available in. This is very similar to the Giorgio armarni foundation in both texture and coverage but without the price tag. This foundation blends like a dream and gives the skin a silky finish. Comfortable to wear all day and doesn't oxidise on my skin. The foundation covers my pores well although it can sometimes prone to sit onto the dry patches. I highly recommene this foundation for everyday wear as it has a natural buildable coverage and looks beautiful on the skin. 

Bourjois Happy Light foundation
Described to give a 'luminous and flawless complexion in any light'. This promises the dewy you desire which is important for the cold winter months where skin is prone to be dull and grey. This gives a healthy natural glow to the complexion but do be aware that shine does break through after a few hours if not set with a powder or spray. I adore the finish of this and I feel that it is just a little less coverage than the healthy mix serum foundation which is one of my most loved foundations. I find that this foundation has a tendency to oxidise so be aware when you purchase your shade.

Lancome teint miracle 
Lancome has always been a brand that never fails to impress me. Although I love matte finish foundations due to my oily skin and forever looking shiny, I enjoyed using this foundation as it gave me a hint of dewyness without looking greasy. This foundation blends beautifully and the medium coverage is perfect for days when my skin is in good condition. This lightweight formulation allows my skin to breathe throughout the day and it wears into the day very well without the tendency to oxidise.

Giorgio armarni luminous silk
This foundation is much loved amongst the beauty blogger world. The biggest selling point about this foundation is that it doesn't contain any SPF which makes it the foundation of choice for nights out where flash photography is involved. This smooth foundation again is very easy to blend and I find that it is a very similar formulation to the loreal true match foundation. This is a lighter weight foundation and I love using this for the summer months where this isnt too heavy on the skin and hardly needs any setting powder.

What are your favourite foundation for dry skin?

  1. I did like the bourjois foundation, formula wise it was wonderful but shade range is terrible. The lightest shade was way to dark for me when I was fair skinned. I'm going to try it again since i'm super tanned from the beach haha. x


  2. I've always wanted to try the Bourjois foundation, I think they do base products really well! My favourites are Revlon ColourStay and Rimmel Lasting Finish xx
