Best Foundations for Dry Skin
I wanted to do an updated best foundation list for 2018 so today I’m sharing my top 5 favorite foundations for dry skin. These are all pale skin friendly. 3 of the 5 foundations are vegan and all are cruelty free. All of these products work for my dry, sensitive pale skin with rosacea. I do list if I think they will work for dry, very dry, normal, or oily skin. I also include comparison swatches.

Best Foundations for Dry Skin Swatches
As a reminder, my arm is darker than my neck and chest. The Cle Cosmetics is darker than my neck and chest. The Laura Geller is very forgiving and blends in just about anywhere. The Huda Beauty is extremely full coverage. The Nordic Veil is medium full coverage. The Norrsken is light medium coverage. All of these except the Cle Cosmetics are an excellent match to my pale skin.
