Hi, my name is Susan and I'm a makeup artist. Today, I'm going to show you a couple of quick tips on how to apply makeup for dry skin. There are a couple of tools you'll need to be able to achieve this. One being an eye shadow primer, a cream eye shadow and a cream blush. Now first you're going to take your eye shadow primer and apply it lightly onto your eyelids. Now the eye shadow primer is really helpful for dry skin because it gives a little bit more moisture to the eyelid. Now, after you've applied your eye shadow primer, you're going to take your cream eye shadow and dab it on lightly to your eyelid. Again, cream based products are great for drier skin because it gives that little extra added bit of hydration because nothing looks worse than dry crusty makeup. So after you've applied that to both of your eyes, you can move on to your cream blush. Now the same principle is added here. You want to give the look of doing this and a little bit of moisture to your skin. Now, take your cream blush and take a small amount because you don't want to go on too heavy. You want a nice dewy finish, dot it on to your cheek and blend outward towards your ears. Do the same to the other side and remember, just like with a powder brush you want to stay right on the apple of your cheek and blend out and there you have it, quick and easy, dewy fresh makeup for dry skin. Now the two essentials you'll need for a quick makeup for dry skin are your cream eye shadow and your cream blush. There you go, stuff and stick it in your bag and keep on rolling. Hope you enjoyed. Thank you.
