I will begin this post using a bit of a skincare feature. Oily skin, apart from hormones, is really a defense mechanism for whenever your skin seems like it needs to become hydrated. It compensates by creating more moisture, thereby becoming oily. This is why it’s important to maintain your skin balanced and hydrated. You can start using a clay mask the night before applying makeup. This helps in tightening pores and it also naturally brings out dirt and oil build-up for the skin.
After cleaning up the clay mask, utilize a Glycolic acid-based face toner to further aid in tightening pores and to make your skin hydrated as Glycerin is a humectant and it assists with drawing in moisture from your air.
After this task, make sure that an oil-free or water-based moisturizer before you sleep to make sure that the skin does not overcompensate by producing more oil.
Now that your skin is in good shape, don’t be disappointed in case you still see oil on the face after waking up, just cleanse and wash by having an oil-free cleanser to take out excess oil and begin with wearing a mattifying primer. What the mattifying primer does is it makes a barrier between skin as well as the makeup so there is an extra layer of coverage and absorbency whenever your skin becomes oily before it hits the makeup.
Foundation for Oily Skin
The first thing you need to do is familiarize your self with the best type of foundation for oily skin. The very best trying to sell foundation doesn’t indicate it’s also the best to utilize for your oily skin. We recommend to utilize mattifying foundations like the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation or the L’oreal Infallible Pro Matte Foundation and apply as usual. But take note, specifically for a foundation for oily skin, it’s preferable to apply in layers. Oil and sebum can really affect how your foundation sits on your skin and when applied in thick layers, it could truly be cakey. It’s best to work lightly and layers covering only what exactly is necessary rather than applying thick layers throughout the face.
Set the Foundation
Using a translucent powder such as the Makeup Forever HD Finishing Powder or maybe the Laura Mercier Translucent Powder, or any pressed or loose powder, sets your foundation and keeps it motionless and transferring. You can make this happen by patting simply a thin amount on the face. Concentrate on areas where you get oily such as the nose and around it and/or the forehead.
Mattifying Setting Spray
Using a setting spray is maybe not necessary, but for added security, use a mattifying setting spray like the Ben Nye Final Seal, which is a product I swear by and is in my kit all the time. This holds the makeup really well it keeps it from transferring to your classy clothes while helping to create a matte finish for a foundation for oily skin.
This process should help with your makeup wear. Foundation for oily skin is just foundation really, so you will see it start to rub off or become oily particularly after a long time and in humid conditions. So, make sure to bring blotting sheets and face powder you used to retouch your makeup.
Now you know the proper way of applying foundation to your oily skin. You will no longer worry about the weather being sultry. You can now rock your favorite foundation without worrying about your face being cakey and oily. Add these tips to your everyday makeup routine and ditch the oily skin you had before!
