Dry skin and concealer don’t always mix—take it from someone who has combination skin that gets dry more often than not. Although it took me a while to find the right formulas that work for my skin type, I’m happy to report that there are more winners out there on the market than you think.
For starters, those with drier skin will want to look for formulas that provide long-lasting hydration so no pesky cracks, creases, or the dreaded flakes rear their ugly heads. Products with added skincare ingredients like hyaluronic acid, squalane, and shea butter can really help with dryness. You’ll probably also want to avoid formulas that mattify since those are likely to make your skin even drier. Don’t take my word for it, though. Makeup artists agree and have a few concealer recommendations for dry skin below. For all their picks and a few of my own favorites, keep scrolling.
