Dry patches and cakey foundation is every makeup lover’s worst nightmare. That’s the thing about skin types; you can be oily, dry, normal, and combo. Different skin types calls for different moisturisers. There is no single moisturiser that is going to work for everyone.
How do you know if your skin is dry? Firstly, you’ll notice how red, patchy and tight your face feels. Then you’ll realise that your makeup almost always looks dry and cakey. Your mistake? Using the wrong moisturiser! Or worse – not using one at all. Smack yourself now.
