For people with oily skin, makeup can be very challenging. Getting your makeup to last the day, preventing that dreaded midday shine and making sure you don’t get any breakouts; it can all be a bit of a minefield. But, there is tricks and tips that you can use in order to prevent those issues.
Before applying makeup, prepare your skin. Wash with warm water, to remove dirt and oil from the surface of the face.
By clearing away dead skin cells, you’ll help even out your skin texture for a smoother finish. Do it at least once a week, to keep your skin condition.
3. Tone it up
Choose oil & alcohol free toner. It will remove excess dirt and oils from your skin.
Just because you have an oily skin, that doesn’t mean that it can’t dry. If skin is too dry, it will produce more oil. Therefore, it is important to give the skin the necessary nourishment.
5. Prime your skin
You should at least prime oiliest areas with an oil-free, anti-shine primer. Put it on after you’ve cleaned your face but before you put on foundation, powder, or other makeup.
6. Matte concealer
Apply mate concealer to prevent blackouts and premises.
7. Don’t overdo powder
Apply powder just on areas that are shiny. Use a matte translucent formula, which can cut shine on any skin tone.
8. Waterproof eye makeup
To prevent your makeup melting away, use waterproof products
9. Blotting paper
It is inevitable that by the middle of the day your natural oils seep through your matte makeup. Use your blotting paper to remove the spots of oil.
