Best Makeup for Dry Skin Review & Tutorial

Welcome to my best makeup for dry skin review and tutorial! An awesome budget priced brush, foundation, serum and concealer combination.

Links to items are below the video.


Check out my first beauty video below. It’s a two in one, with a best makeup for dry skin review and a tutorial!. I’ve been using this combination of products for about three months and I am thrilled to share it with you. There’s honestly no need to break the bank with expensive everyday products. Personally I’d rather splurge on a night cream for wrinkles and some special masks/peels.

Just the other day I watched a Today show segment where they featured twin teen girls. They applied drugstore products only on one twin, and then luxury/premium makeup on the other girl. They then brought the girls outside and interviewed people on the street, asking who they thought looked better. The girl wearing the drugstore makeup was chosen almost every time! It was honestly not a big surprise to me.

I feel a little goes a long way, so I don’t normally where much makeup to begin with. I’m pretty frugal and love to save money, so most of my makeup either came from the drugstore, while the rest of the items were part of a gift or holiday set, or an occasional splurge (I love MAC eye shadows)!  In this video, I cover items you can pick up relatively inexpensively, either at the drugstore, or online.

So I must forewarn you – I had a little blooper in the video. I didn’t really plan it out – the video was shot in one take with no cuts or anything. I applied the concealer and then realized I still had two more products to review before moving to the next step. I look pretty hilarious with my un-blended concealer on for what felt like 5 minutes! Enjoy!
