In brief: Eczema or allergy

Dry skin could be a sign of atopic dermatitis or eczema which is a dry skin hypersensitivity reaction.
This can happen with irritation or contact with a cosmetic ingredient causing an allergic reaction. Using topical cortisone creams and moisturizers can help. Also need to evaluate your makeup to see if you're allergic to one of the ingredients.
