If you’re like us, there’s nothing better than a day spent under the warm sun with friends, but if you suffer from oily skin, how do you manage to keep the shine coming from above and not from your own complexion?
We know how tough it may be to combat shine if you are prone to oily skin, so here is everything you need to know for a perfect makeup when you need it most.
Skin Care Is Everything
If you suffer from oily or combination skin, your skincare regimen can make or break your complexion.
To keep skin in prime condition, start your day with a toner and follow with an oil-free moisturizer.
Before applying any makeup, we recommend using a primer to keep your makeup fresh throughout the day, while helping to limit oil production. Jerome Alexander’s Liquid Silk Primer works on any skin type for fresh makeup all day long. Order your own by clicking here.
Avoid Fall Out
One of the most common mistakes women with oily skin make when applying their makeup is to focus on the eyes last.
The problem with this is that shadows are prone to fall out, with debris falling under the eyes and settling on the skin.
If you have oily or combination skin, we recommend focusing on the eyes first while the skin is still fresh so any fallout can be cleaned without disturbing the face.
Powder Is Your Best Friend
The finishing touches to your look are critical.
It is vital to “lock in” the look you have created. This step is even more important for women dealing with oily skin.
We always recommend a good powder and setting spray to finish the face, locking in moisture while keeping oil at bay.
Powder formulas are always better for oily skin than creamy ones, so be sure to use a setting powder that contains skin-nourishing formulas that will keep shine at bay while not overly drying the skin. (Our top selling formula in Magic Minerals is just what you need for a smooth and shine-free complexion in one simple step.)
