6 Makeup Tips For Oily Skin
We know how sad it can be when the makeup doesn’t last long on your oily skin.
Just because you've got oily skin, that doesn’t mean you can’t do makeup. It's just a matter of knowing what works the best for your skin type or how you can fix the issues by keeping few things in mind.
Below are a few tips from makeup experts to make the makeup stay long on oily skin.
1. Prepping The Skin.
This is a very important step, no matter what your skin type is, Prepping your skin before the makeup according to your skin type is a very essential part of the makeup routine.
For oily skin people, Wash your face with oil controlling face wash (consider going for something which contains salicylic acid or glycolic acid), follow up with an oil balancing or Pore tightening toners and moisturizer (If you have extremely oily skin then opt for mattifying moisturizer).
As an additional step, apply some glow to your face with Vitamin C serum without making it look oily. The next step is to prime your face for your makeup to have a smooth and mattified canvas. Prefer using blurring primers since oily skin tends to have more open pores than normal and dry skin.
Especially take care of T-Zone, forehead, nose, and chin with an oil-free, anti-shine primer. Put it before you put on foundation, powder, or other makeup.

2. Avoid Creasing Of Eye Makeup.
Usually, people who have oily skin tend to have oil secretion on their eyelids too.
To avoid the creasing of eye makeup, Use mattifying eye primers specially designed for eyelids or if that’s not available, Creaseless concealers are the best substitute. Apply a creaseless mattifying concealer very lightly and powder it a little with loose powder. The base creates a perfect canvas for eye shadow and liner while absorbing crease-causing oils throughout the day.
**Make sure to use loose powder only and not compact powder for this purpose.
3. Don’t go overboard with powders.
It sounds like the right thing to do when you have oily skin, But that’s not the case, going overboard with the powders could make your pores push out more oil and will make your face look caked up and makeup might run down very easily.
Apply powder just on shiny areas. Use a matte loose powder formula, which can cut shine on any skin tone.
If you do apply too much powder by mistake, Take a damp makeup sponge and blot it over the over-powdered areas.
**If you have oily skin, avoid using compact over your foundations, Opt for loose powders only as it tends to control oil secretions.
4. Keep The Blotting Sheets Handy.
No matter how settled your makeup looks in the morning, if you have oily skin, you’ll spot shine in a while.
Some blotting sheets simply lift the oil from your skin without budging your makeup. Don’t rub it on your face, just pat it.
5. Opt For Oil-free Products.
Since your skin naturally produces more than enough oil, invest in makeup products that are oil-free and non-comedogenic, which means they don't clog your pores. Go for powder contour and blushes instead of heavy creams. You can also try water-based tints for blush which doesn’t clog your pores.
6.Seek For Long Stay Products.
Water and oil can make it smear, smudge, or slip. That is the reason to stick to products that are waterproof, water-resistant, or long-wear. Try looking for this quality in all of your products, be it your foundation, concealer, Lipstick, or eye products, Consider buying waterproof or water-resistant formulas especially when you have oily skin.
