In my experience no powder can make dry skin look good, the 'finer' the stucture of the powder is, the more it sticks on the individual flakes so they only get more visible. Same effect as using powder on a skin that isn't shaved. So powder is out of the question.

You probably should use a moisturizer or toner first to get rid of the dryness, after which you could apply powder. I find Vichy Normaderm cream very usefull for this.

I don't know about foundations either, never tried. G'luck.

I agree with Sparty about applying moisturizer beforehand, and also agree that Laura Mercier is an excellent brand. smile.gif
