This Is The One Foundation Hack Rihanna Uses For Cold Weather

October 26, 2018

With the cold weather comes dry, flaky skin — a total nightmare for foundation wearers. Luckily, Rihanna’s makeup artist has a great foundation hack for combating cold weather skin.

In an October 25th interview with Elle, makeup artist Priscilla Ono, who helped launch Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty makeup line in 2017, revealed her secret for getting luminous skin despite dryness.


Ono stated that she, of course, uses Fenty’s Pro Filt’r foundation ($34), which already boasts an anti-cakey finish. “You can layer it and you don’t have to put too much powder on it because it has a soft, dry, matte dry-down,” Ono told Elle. This is a huge plus for those of us with parched skin.

“I like to mix a couple drops of face oil into my foundation,” Ono, who has dry skin herself, stated. “I use the Caudalie Premier Cru Precious Oil ($89) — three drops of it — and mix it with Pro Filt’r. Believe me when I tell you that your skin will look so gorgeous afterwards because you still have that longwear ability without your face feeling too dry.”

The Caudalie Premier Cru Precious Oils promotes hydration while combating fine lines and wrinkles with a mix of sustainably sourced, skin nourishing oils.

If you want to try out mixing oil into your foundation, there are more cost effective alternatives you can play with.

Tarte’s Maracuja Oil ($9.99) is much-loved among the beauty community, as is basic, cold-pressed jojoba oil ($10.99), rosehip oil ($14.95), and almond oil ($9.99).

Mixing in a bit of oil to your foundation, or even using oil alongside a moisturizer, can greatly enhance your skin’s appearance and help your makeup look flawless. If it works for Rihanna and Ono, this hack is definitely worth a try.
