3 powders for dry skin that will make you a total powder convert

Yes, dry skinned ladies. You can wear powder and you shall! Just make sure it's one of these three powders for dry skin

It has come to my attention that a lot of people don't use a powder to set their makeup. It's usually when their skin is on the dry side of things as they feel it dries out their skin further.

Setting your makeup is an essential part of your routine, especially if you want your foundation to last all day. The thing is, a lot of people don't know that setting powders don't always have to be matte. They come in many different finishes.

Yes, there are powders for oily skin that will keep it dryer and matte but there are also powders for dry skin that won't dry out your skin. But they will set your makeup, keeping it on all day. Here are my faves.
