Best Powder Foundation for Normal/Dry Skin


I have normal/dry skin and usually use hydrating liquid foundations set with a translucent powder, but for busy mornings nothing can beat the convenience and quickness of a powder compact. This powder foundation looks just as nice as my favorite liquid formulas and I can often find it on QVC for drugstore prices. You do not want to miss my favorite powder foundation for normal/dry skin types. 

Best Powder Foundation for Dry SkinCelebration Foundation with SPF 50+ is a really nice full coverage formula and paired with the Heavenly Luxe Angled Buffing Foundation Brush (it’s as amazing as it sounds, trust me!) you can have your foundation perfect in 30 seconds. No joke. 

My favorite thing about this powder is that I can wear the shade Light right now in the summer (SPF 50 woot!!), but when my tan fades it will still match my skin perfectly. Yes, the shades are full coverage but they do have a little bit of wiggle room. My other favorite part is that I’m really treating my skin to awesome anti-aging ingredients when I wear this. The powder is hydrating, talc-free, and is infused with anti-aging hydrolyzed collagen, silk powder, peptides and antioxidants. If I’m going to have it on my face anyway I love that it’s doing good things for my complexion. 

Best powder foundation for normal/dry skin | Powder foundation with SPF I did a quick before/after for you wearing the powder foundation. The only thing I put on my face first was my Acure Rosehip Oil (it’s less than $10 for a bottle and I’m addicted to it). I’m also wearing Coral Lip Glow and my favorite mascara. You can totally tell it takes my redness away and just gives me a more polished look overall.

As we get closer to September I am starting to think about how my oldest will be in a half day of school this year. I’m not a morning person and I’m super worried about being the psycho person at school drop off in the morning that can’t get it together. I have no illusions that I will be putting on a full face of makeup that early in the morning, but I can totally tolerate a few swipes of powder foundation, mascara, and a lip balm and I think I will be putting together a little beauty bag for my van with the essentials.

    I love using this over other liquid foundations, but it’s too sheer for me (it doesn’t cover my redness enough). It’s nice.

    I’ve only tried their translucent pressed and loose powders. I love me a good powder foundation, and this one sounds beautifully milled.
