Bourjois makes some great dewy foundations for dry skin but our personal favorite is the Happy Light variant. This light-medium foundation blends easily into the skin. It gives a natural glowing finish perfect for everyday wear. The beauty of the product is that it suits both dry and oily skin and the only downside is its slightly expensive price tag.
9. Kryolan Ultra Foundation: Price – Rs 900 for 15gms
This is another amazing product which is worth every penny! It’s a heavy duty foundation which provides full coverage, hiding all blemishes easily. Since it has a thick consistency, blending requires some effort. It provides a nice dewy finish to the skin and we recommend this over the Kryolan Supra Foundation as this is made of natural oils while the latter is made of mineral oil. Available in a wide range of shades, the foundation is also available in refill sizes making it even more affordable. A highly recommended for foundation for dry skin.

This is a foundation in a stick form and due its creamy texture, its very suitable for dry skin. It blends easily and does not stick to dry patches though adequate moisturization is always necessary for any foundation to go on smoother.

Only downside is that it creases on humid days so best to top it powder and the shade selection is also quite limited.
