3 To Try: Powders For Dry Skin

Face powders for dry skin

I've was always one to embrace the dewy glow and skip face powder, mainly because my skin is dry and the majority of powders leave a cakey tight cast, but you know, these last couple of years or so I've really started to appreciate a good powder to set my makeup. This is mainly due to layering on more powder products such as blusher, contour and highlight. So I've found that a good powder is pretty essential to keep everything in place and to stop patchiness appearing. Luckily I've found a few good face powders that work so well on my dry skin and don't accentuate any fine lines.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light
I couldn't talk about finishing powders without mentioning this one from Hourglass. I have a few of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders now but Diffused Light is my most reached for. The slight yellow cast to this wonderfully finely milled powder counteracts redness so it's perfect for my dry and sensitive skin which does have its difficult moments from time to time. Diffused Light blurs out imperfections and doesn't accentuate anything I don't want it to. It's great to set foundation with but I'm actually quite smitten with using it on its own for a soft healthy glow to my complexion. This has lasted so well that it looks practically untouched, which I can assure you it isn't.

This compact is truly stunning in its golden packaging, but inside the finishing powder is just as exquisite. It's a coloured powder, yet as the particles are so tiny it gives the softest veil of coverage, and I don't find it changes the appearance of my makeup. It combines rose wax and almond oil to hydrate the skin and leave it comfortable all day, perfect for drier skins. Because of this unique formula, the Charlotte Tilbury powder mattifies the skin to some extent, but also leaves a radiant and natural soft focus finish.

Rimmel Stay Matte usually gets all the love, so it was really no surprise that when they released a translucent powder that it was also a hit, and from what I've seen its the hero of Rimmel's #Insta range. This micro-finely milled pressed powder gives a light, barely there finish and its super comfortable on a drier complexion. Once applied to the skin it's undetectable, it's not chalky at all and doesn't settle anywhere it shouldn't. Given the price point this isn't one to be missed. 

So there's my favourite face powders for dry skin. Have you tried any of these or do you have your own favourite?
