Best Makeup Tips for Oily Skin



When it comes to skin care, everyone knows it matters much, especially for those who have naturally an oily facial skin. Problems are more compounded in this case as the make up not only is difficult to apply but also it gets displaced with more and more oil secreted by the skin. Here is a simple step by step make up guide for those with oily skin.


Cleansing: Before applying any make up on your skin, cleansing and making it neutral is most important. Use an ‘Exfoliating Cleanser’ which not only cleans your skin but also makes the skin free from dead cells and removes the clogging particles in the acne causing oily skin pores. This cleansing is most suitable for oily skin and is better than skin care soaps.


Remember few tips: Use salicylic acid ingredient in a cleanser for cleansing. Do not over rub your skin. Use sponge instead of your fingers, as skin to skin contact can induce more oil on your facial skin. Do not touch your facial skin with hands at any point.



Toners: one may apply toner using cotton, which is specially meant 
 for oily skin. The main function of a toner is to clear off oil and make up traces and gives you clearer skin. 

Moisturizer: few prefer to skip moisturizing, but it’s required for the make up to hold on to your slippery oily skin and hide wrinkles if any. Make sure you use a water based moisturizer instead of an oil based one. 


Foundation: The best methods include Matte Mineral Foundation or
the Liquid based foundation. Foundation is the most essential and significant step in making up. This is the one which is in direct contact with your skin and the make up on top of it. Mineral foundation consists of anti oxidants and vitamins necessary for the skin and are resistant to water and smudging. It also help in keeping your skin more youthful and cater to most Skin Care needs.

Liquid foundation on the other hand, contains aloe vera to supply nutrients to the skin and soften the irritated pores. Do not use foundations with petroleum based oil content, alcohol and cheaper powder based foundation. Also remember to apply lighter colored foundation as the foundation tends to mix with the oil secreted and make the skin look darker after some time.
• Finally, after the application of foundation, leave your skin for ten minutes without disturbing for it to get set properly. Then you may apply a faint tone of setting powder clearly and uniformly distributed through out the face. Always use pressed powder with matte finish. It’s always advisable for those with oily skin, to apply as little make up as possible, which only covers up the non uniform portions and gives a uniform smooth and slender look.


Apart from the above make up tips, remember to drink plenty of water. Consume good amount of natural fruits and vegetables, as most requirements for skin care are taken care of by them. Use good, branded skin care soaps, keep washing your skin at least twice or thrice a day and never touch your face unnecessarily with your bare hands.
