Oily skin is prone to breakouts. Applying makeup on oily skin is a bit tricky because some makeup products can make oily skin oilier. When the skin is oily, it is hard for it to breathe well. Applying a makeup product that will make it oilier is digging the hole deeper. Luckily, there are makeup products that are meant for people with oily skin. Go for these products if you have this type of skin. Once you get them, follow the following tips to apply makeup on your skin.
Makeup tips for oily skin
Consider the overall health conditions of your skin before you begin
As part of the preparation process, consider the overall health condition of your skin and take the necessary precautions. What is your skin color? Do you have acne? Do you have red blisters/patches on the skin? All these questions should guide you to buy the right makeup materials for your skin. If you are allergic to some substances, you must keep them out of the equation completely. Additionally, if you sweat profusely, you should also consider which products will be good for you.
Prepare your skin as usual
Having been comfortable with the health condition of your skin, now cleanse it for the makeup application process. Wash your face in readiness for the makeup application. Clean out unwanted oils and debris before you can apply your makeup. Makeup is likely to remain embedded on a clean face for a longer time than on a dirty one. While washing your face before makeup application is a good thing, it becomes a bad thing when it is overdone. Two rights do not make a right here. They make a wrong. Just wash your face once when you are ready to apply makeup. Use a suitable toner to remove the face wash and any remaining oil traces. Next, prime your face to remove other imperfections that the toner was unable to remove. Finally, exfoliate your skin using a suitable exfoliator. Exfoliation will make your skin smooth and even. It will also remove dead skin cells.
Use makeup products for oily skin only
Once your skin is ready for makeup application, now use the makeup products that are meant only for oily skin. This is the defining moment for makeup application among the people with oily skin. The makeup application procedure goes as usual, just that you use fat-free moisturizers, foundations, primers and finishing powders. Start with a liquid concealer (not a cream one) and cover all the blemishes on the skin. Using a suitable makeup brush, apply a mattifying, noncomedogenic foundation that is oil-free. Make sure that your finishing powders are loose and oil free. Again, make sure that you do not apply too much powder.
All said and done, the makeup above tips for oily skin will make sure that makeup remains embedded on your skin for as long as you want. However, you have to prepare to deal with the oiliness of your skin. Carry blotting papers to remove oil from the skin at regular intervals.
