Helloooo, so today’s post is going to be choosing foundations and other makeup products for oily skin types. Oily skin can be difficult at times because you apply your makeup and then an hour later you look in the mirror and your face looks like a shiny, greasy mess. Dewy skin is IN, but trust me there is a difference between dewy and oily!!
Things to know:
ALWAYS moisturize, oily or not, your skin needs moisture. I know a lot of people think they don’t have to moisturize if their skin is oily to begin with but you still have to! If you don't then your skin will just produce more oil to compensate for the moisture you're not giving your skin. Plus moisturizer makes foundation go on better.
PRIME!! Priming is a must. It will create a barrier between your skin and your foundation and prevent the oils from making their way through your makeup. It also fills in any fine lines and pores to give a more flawless look :)
Pick a Foundation that suites your skin. Everyone has their own personal preference when it comes to foundation so try some out and see what works best, but make sure whatever you choose has a MATTE finish to increase the wear time of your foundation during the day.
PoWDER! Any creams you put on your face should be set with a powder on oily skin, to lock the products in place! I personally like to use a shine control powder and a setting powder together :)
