No matter your skin type—dry, oily, or combination—finding the perfect foundation that looks good in all types of lighting is quite the quest. 😅 As with other skincare products, natural sunscreens, and drugstore concealers, there's so much to look for: level of coverage, shade undertones, longevity, finish... And for folks with dry skin, the list is especially long. Most foundations seem to emphasize invisible dry patches and leave the skin feeling parched and dull.
But don’t give up just yet! There are so many formulas on the market these days—and there’s definitely one out there for you. As is the case with those drugstore liquid eyeliners you love so much, it just might take a few tries to find the winner. To improve your odds of discovering the right one, here’s a master list of our all-time favorite foundations for dry skin. We’ve included options with varying levels of coverage and dewiness, and we made sure to highlight both wallet-friendly choices (most of these can be found at your local drugstore!) as well as ones that are worth the investment if you’re willing to shell out the extra bucks.
And if you happen to be in the process of overhauling your entire makeup routine, keep in mind that you don’t always have to spend more to get more. Some of our favorite foundations—and drugstore moisturizers, for that matter—are under $10!
