taylornonnnac asked: Hi! I didn't know how else to contact you, so I decided to send you a message on here! I think I've seen you say on your blog that you have oily skin and I have the complete opposite problem (extremely dry, my skin peels around my nose/mouth all the damn time) but I was wondering if you could recommend and cheap but good foundations. My skin is also really red all the time and I get random red splotches so I guess my skin is pretty sensitive and I would need medium/thick coverage --->
on days when the redness was acting up. I’m normally pretty resourceful at finding what works for me, but I’ve never had this bad of dry skin - I’ve never had oily skin, just “normal” I guess, so I’m really lost and have no idea what to do! I’ve tried L’oreals BB cream, Maybelline’s BB cream, Covergirl Clean foundation and I use the Smashbox Photo Finish green primer (which does nothing) and a loose powder on top… I appreciate any help you can give me!
Hey! I’ve never personally had to look for foundation for dry skin. My skin does peel around my nose, but then it’s oily in the t-zone. But I will open this question up to any of my followers who might have dry skin. Anyone have suggestions for a good medium-full coverage foundation for dry skin and/or a solution for sensitive skin and redness?
For the second part, you could try Paula’s Choice Redness relief under your foundation. I have the previous version of it, and it works well, and the new stuff is supposed to be even better. It actually calms/soothes the skin and gets rid of the redness that way, rather than covering it. It seems to be out of stock at the moment, but you can sign up to get an email when it comes back (shouldn’t be long). (Here’s my Paula’s Choice referral link, in case you want to use it. You get $10 off your order.)
