A concealer works similar to a foundation but is usually thicker. It hides pigmentation by evening the color and blending those blemishes into the skin. Be aware that it is applied after foundation to avoid smudging. There are many shades of concealers for different skin tones.

10 Best BB Creams with SPF 2022

Long-term exposure to UV rays can easily cause melanin deposition on the face, resulting in freckles. What's more serious is that the skin will age prematurely. Many people have realized this and have added sun protection to their daily makeup routine.

10 Best Concealers for Acne Scars 2022

In beauty products, primer is often ignored, but it plays an important role in all the makeup steps. It can not only cover skin defects for a good modification of the skin state but also ease the follow-up makeup steps without caking or other embarrassing cases. For dry skin, the most important effect of a primer is "hydrating and moisturizing".

Insufficient oil secretion on dry skin may result in more obvious wrinkles, which will cause caking during makeup and melting afterward. So, for dry skin, try to avoid light primer, because it can not provide effective hydrating and moisturizing, and won’t reduce caking.

Also, heavy primer should also be avoided, because it can not be absorbed in a short time, and will be caking when doing makeup. When using primer, generally squeeze it into a soybean size on your forehead, nose, and chin, as well as your cheeks, and then gently pat it into absorption. Too much or too little can not effectively create good skin conditions for the following makeup.

Based on thousands of feedbacks from users and the opinions of dermatologists, we have selected the following 10 primers suitable for dry skin. We believe that they can effectively avoid caking. If you are looking for a primer, I hope this article can help you.
