7 Makeup Tips for Oily Skin
Makeup tips for oily skin can help you deal with the problems of excessive oils under cosmetics. Having greasy skin is never desirable, especially when you’re trying to keep makeup in place!
However, the oils that your skin produces create a barrier between you and environment, which works in your favor. They also help moisturize your skin to keep it looking younger longer, which is not such a bad tradeoff!
When you apply makeup, you should be smart about the products you use. Heavy creams and oily lotions are not meant for oily skin!
If you've always had oily skin, then you should know how to deal with a shiny face by now. Raging hormones during teenage years, (and beyond) can cause skin to make far too many oils. Sometimes, oily skin can become dry skin after the change in life. Its totally a mixed bag when it comes to oily skin. Use these tips for oily skin to help make taking care of your skin easier!
Before Makeup - Tips for Oily Skin
Well rested skin looks great! Be sure you’re getting enough beauty sleep every night to ensure your skin will have a good day!
Drink plenty of H20 throughout the day to help flush debris from your body.
Before you begin makeup application, make sure your face is oil free and clean.
Everyone with oily skin should use an oil control moisturizer. Wait a few minutes before applying makeup so your lotion has time to penetrate thoroughly.
7 Makeup Tips for Oily Skin
If you have visible acne, use a foundation or concealer (cream or liquid) to help cover them first. Just a couple of dots can create magic!
To keep oils from posing a problem during the day, carry a purse-sized compact powder with you. They are especially great for targeting oily skin areas around the T-zone.
Because your skin already has built in moisture, use foundations that are best suited for oily skin. The less cakey they are, the fewer problems you'll have. I have always preferred liquid foundations but I've also had good success with minerals too. Ultimately, it depends on what you like best. There are so many new foundations on the market today so you have loads of choices.
Powder eyeshadow's are best suited for your skin. Natural oils hug onto powders and nestle them nicely onto your skin. Creamy eyeshadows are known to cause problems over the day and may fade or get streaky.
Many women with oily skin complain about their mascara running throughout the day. This is because they are bound to pick up some of the excess oils your skin makes. The best way to avoid this is to use waterproof mascara, which stays in place much better.
Use powder-based blush or bronzer on your cheeks. You can also use cream-based blush if you apply them with a damp makeup sponge.
Lipsticks are a girl's best friend but glosses are also a great choice cause they provide lustrous shine.
After Makeup Tips for Oily Skin
Before you lay your head on your bed, make sure you remove the makeup on your face.
Don't use a heavy creams overnight because they can stop up pores.
Use these makeup tips for oily skin to help keep your skin clear and your skin looking fantastic every day. Just keep in mind that whats underneath cosmetics is just as important as the makeup you add to it.
