    What Is The Best Foundation, Mineral Powder Or Tint For Dry Skin?

    Hello everyone. I am using retin-a and it's great for my acne and little by little it's improving all the sun damage, but I haven't been able to find the right cover up that will stay on without flaking off because my skin's dry.

    I hope some of you have ideas.

    My skin doesn't look good enough to go without some kind of cover.

    Thank you so much!

    Salty

    i now use clinique moisture wear, i dint have to use much, its a tient, but covers well and gives me the dewy look i want!
    good luck!
    btw, i tried to use retin a, but my skin is to sensitive to it!

    Where do you get the Clinique moisture wear?... I looked it up but can't seem to find a foundation by that name; the only one that comes close is Supermoisture Makeup. That's what I've been looking to find for ages since I need light coverage and I like the fresh look.

    bren, thanks so much for responding. I didn't think anyone would. The bare minerals did the same to me.

    Are you talking about the Clinique Sheer Tint SPF 15?

    Thank you!

    EllieFrog, what do you mean that you've been looking for it for ages--do you mean the one bren is talking about?

    hi girls.
    ellie is right!
    its the supermoisture makeup!!!
    i love this!
    great for dry skin!
    i use a primer underneath it, and a very lihjy powder to set it!
    i also use a mouse blush instead of a powder blush, and cream eye shadow when i wear eye shadow,....
    hope this helps!

    Okay, bren. So it's clinique's supermoisture makeup--just out of curiousity do you use the neutral shade, beige, what?

    What kind of primer do you use?

    Is it good for your skin?

    Thank you!

    I've heard good things about this one too (for dry skin)! I definitely wouldn't suggest Bare Minerals for dry skin. My skin is normal/combination and I felt it would make my skin feel dry (especially around my eyes) and normally don't even have this problem. Many powder foundations don't work well for dry skin and may make you look drier.

    Bren, how do you do your powder to set? Do you use a big brush and loose powder--what?

    What kind of powder? What color?

    Still waiting on my foundation to come.

    Thank you,
    Salty

    I completely agree tUrRrRa. I wanted it to work because I know it's good for your skin, but I can't use it at all...makes my dry skin look even more dry.

    Thanks for writing.

    I used to love Bare Minerals but then I too found out that it seemed to make my dry skin look worse. I do exfolliate and use Pond's for dry skin which has helped. I used to buy Clinique and some more expensive creams but for the price .....Pond's works just as well.

    I do use a tinted moisturizer for daily use and found that "Boots" (found in Target) has a nice line of cream foundations that work really well for dry skin!

    Thank you, chooky. I used to use Pond's. I need to go back to it. I will look at the Boots line at Target. I like the clinique foundation. It's good. The only thing I worry a little about is that it's clogging my pores. But other than that, I really like it.

    Thanks much for your post.
