Unless you're part of the tiny percentage that miraculously has perfect, smooth skin, you know what an issue dry skin can pose for applying makeup. The point of makeup products like concealer and foundation is to create a completely clear canvas, smooth and even. But if you have dry skin, that same concealer and foundation will just sit on top of dry bumps or flakes, and even cake into lines. If anything, the makeup highlights that you have dry skin.
Ask any makeup artist, and they'll tell you how important moisturizing is - above all else. You should consider moisturizer a makeup product in addition to a skincare product - and it's the most important one. Remember, makeup serves little to no purpose unless your skin is properly moisturized. Check out this eHow article on applying makeup to dry skin:
