It can be difficult to find the perfect concealer for dry skin as many concealer formulas that have great coverage can feel tight on the skin. This tends to accentuate fine lines and rough texture which are more common for those with dry skin.

Used on blemishes to disguise breakouts, to correct pigmentation or under your eyes to minimise dark circles, concealers work to cover any imperfections to leave your skin looking its very best

Is Liquid or Cream Concealer Better for Dry Skin

Both! Liquid and cream concealers are ideal for drier skin types as their formulas contain hydrating ingredients - so they won't accentuate dry patches or flaky areas. Opt for a matte formula with a lightweight texture that will blend seamlessly into the skin and leave a radiant finish.

How to Apply Concealer Over Dry Patches

The first step should be to start with a cleansed, well moisturised base and go from there. The additional layer of a good makeup primer won't go amiss either - especially on the parts of your face that are prone to dryness.

Blend concealer using a damp makeup sponge to make application easier and prevent streaks that could happen with a makeup brush. Alternatively, use your ring finger for thicker, creamier concealers. The light touch and warmth from your body will help to blend for a more even finish.
