In brief: Exfoliants
Makeup that contain exfoliants such as aha (alpha hydroxy acids) or retinols can cause dryness.
These should be avoided if you have eczema as they may exacerbate it.

In brief: Multiple
Makeup powders are designed to absorb oil and can dry out the skin.
Also alcohol-containing makeups can dry the skin.
