Suffer from oily skin? We’ve got the makeup tutorial for you. Our expert solutions and specially designed makeup for oily skin can help you go from looking drab to fab. So you won’t have to struggle with that ‘cakey’, shiny look ever again.
The first thing you need to consider when choosing makeup for oily skin is whether the makeup’s formulation is non-comedogenic aka acne-friendly. Non-comedogenic makeup is ideal for oily and acne-prone skin as it allows skin to breath rather than clogging pores and resulting in acne breakouts.
Mattify The Skin
A makeup primer like the glo-minerals Mattifying Primer is the perfect primer for oily skin and those prone to an oily shine. For a smooth, invisible matte finish that helps eliminate shine, fill in fine lines and minimise the appearance of pores while extending the wear of your makeup. This silky, oil free primer is the one for you.
Prime Your Lids
It’s often overlooked but your eyelids can also produce oil and eye makeup can crease throughout the day. So if you’re planning on wearing eye makeup, we suggest applying a mineral eye shadow primer like the glo-minerals Shadow Primer which can not only ensure long-lasting, crease-free and smudge-proof staying power but can also intensify pigment colour in your eye makeup.
Avoid Packing on Powder
While it may be tempting to pile on a ton of powder to get rid of shiny skin, it’s really not necessarily with the right products. Firstly, with talc-free makeup like glo-minerals, you won’t need to use as much product to get the coverage you need. Whether it’s your oil free foundation, or a matte powder, a little can go a long way with mineral makeup for oily skin.
Start with a small amount then build up coverage to achieve the flawless complexion you want. This way you have total control and wont have to stress about your makeup looking extremely heavy.
Plus, going overboard with a face powder can cause your pores to kick into overdrive and produce excess oil to compensate for the lack of hydration.
Don’t panic if you do apply too much powder though. You can dampen a makeup sponge and blot it over the over-powdered areas, or spritz your skin with a hydrating mist primer to help revive your skin.
