A good primer will give you soft-focus skin with an even and smooth finish all the while working as a perfect base for the rest of your makeup. Whether you’re looking to soothe uncomfortable dry patches, mattify oily skin or minimise the appearance of pores, a light and delicate gel-based primer will smooth and conceal. When it comes to uneven skin texture, everyone’s concerns are different. If you’re looking to reduce and even out redness, a green-tinged primer is your go-to, while a silicone-based primer will work to smooth out the irregular texture. For dull-looking skin choose a purple-based primer and for an all-out glowing look, we recommend orange-based formulas.
Find the perfect match
Finding the right shade foundation can prove to be quite a task, let alone finding a hydrating foundation that doesn’t cling on to dry skin and your flakiest patches. If you’re looking for makeup for uneven skin texture purposes, colour matching is vital to creating a healthy-looking complexion. It’s time to use makeup that actually shows off your skin, instead of hiding it. If you suffer from particularly dry skin, there’s nothing worse than a cakey foundation in the wrong shade. To find your colour match, we recommend blending it from your lower jawline all the way down to the neck. The shade that disappears into your skin is the one for you. Top tip - it’s important to remember that no one’s skin is just one colour, so if you’re willing to go the extra mile, investing in multiple shades of the foundation is a great idea. It will take you from season to season, blending together effortlessly as your skin colour changes in colour throughout the year.
Correct and conceal
Not only can you use a concealer as a foundation if you apply small amounts, but the right type of concealing can also now be used to ‘correct’ almost any skin concern. From neutralising the appearance of discolouration, reducing the look of dry and dull skin to covering up dark circles, imperfections and blemishes that you can’t seem to get rid, there’s a concealer for everything. For those with particularly dry skin that are looking for a treatment for uneven skin texture, go for creamy-based concealers. Designed to specifically hydrate dry, itchy and flaky areas they’ll leave you looking generally refreshed, unlike powdery formulas that accentuate dull, dry skin.
Get your glow on
If you’re looking for products for an uneven skin texture caused by particularly dry skin, using a highlighter is a great way to illuminate and restore a natural and healthy glow back into your complexion. For the ultimate glow, dot your highlighter onto the bridge of your nose, add a little to your cheekbones above your blusher, bridge of your nose and lips and chin for a fresh and dewy look. For a less is more look, a creamy formula will be subtle as its more blendable, while a powder will make a statement with its glittery, buildable finish. No one has to know that you’re dealing with dry or dull skin when you apply your highlighter correctly – our secret.
