4 Top Tips to Solve Your Oily Skin Problem When Applying Makeup
If the makeup already has a lot of oil in it, the extra oil will smudge the makeup and you’ll end up with a nice smear job. Hence, the best way to help your oily skin is to know how to apply the makeup, so it doesn’t make the oil worst. Here are 4 tips to help you out.
1. Prepare Your Skin: Wash your face with hot water and soap to open the pores, then splash cold water on it to close the pores. It helps in removing extra oil without damaging the skin. Use an oil free moisturizer with a sunblock to prevent dry skin.
2. The Right Foundation: Use an oil free foundation in thin layers to prevent that “caked on” look. When you apply the foundation it should look natural. Set the foundation with some powder to match the foundation. They do have some setting spray you can use, but be careful it doesn’t have added oil in it to increase your oily skin. You can use some kaolin clay, which absorbs the extra oil.
3. Choose A Matte Blush: The blush powder you use should be a lighter shade than your normal color of skin. The matte will have less oil in it than regular blush, which is usually made with an oil base.
Plus, don’t use a cream blush; they have an oil base that will increase the oil in your face. Also, you may want to consider carrying a powdered blush with you to touch up the shine. It will make the blush last longer.
4. Eye Liner And Eye Shadow: Be sure you apply some foundation to your eye lids to absorb the extra oil in the creases. You can also use a pat of kaolin clay to absorb the oil. It will work as a base for eye shadow and eye liner, which are both made with an oil base. They do have some that are powdered base, so be sure to use those instead of the oil base eye shadow. Although, sometimes they just don’t make them in the colors you like.
