6 Best Setting Powders for Dry Skin That Won't Accentuate Flakes or Patches
If you struggle with desert dry skin like me, chances are that matte makeup isn’t really your cup of tea. But while it’s relatively easy to shop for a dewy foundation, powders pose a challenge because, well, they’re matte by nature. So, why opt for a powder at all? Not only do they set your makeup so it lasts longer, they also help smooth everything over and keep your foundation in place, which is especially needed with the increased use of face masks this year.
But don’t worry—that doesn't mean all of the benefits of setting powders are lost to you. While the majority of powder formulas are made with oily skin in mind, they can still be incorporated into a dry skin routine. We compiled a selection of hydrating powder formulas infused with moisturizing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, shea butter, and vitamin E to help you set your face without making it glaringly obvious to the world that you have dry skin.
