7 makeup tips for oily skin

by LeeHaechang on
Especially if you have oily skin, you should keep the skin's characteristics in mind when applying makeup. Otherwise, things could get worse.
Making makeup  on oily skin is really difficult. Make-up peels off easily, smears, clogs pores, and can cause various skin problems. So today, I'm going to share 7 makeup tips for oily skin. Keep your skin smooth and matte all day long!
1. Prepare the skin
The first tip is to prepare your skin before applying makeup. That way, all skin products will last longer and look better.
Here's how to prepare your skin.
  • Exfoliation: Exfoliating can help smooth the skin texture and give a smooth finish. Choose a gentle exfoliator specifically designed for your skin type. Do this at least once a week, and at most three times a week.
  • Moisturizing: The exfoliation has made the skin a bit dry, so the skin will try to produce more oil. At this time, it is necessary to control oil production by keeping the skin moist.
2. Always use free base
If you have oily skin, this second tip will help you keep your makeup consistent.
  • With a light, opaque free base that doesn't have oil, let's face the areas prone to more oily (forehead, nose, chin). Powder is the best option. 
  • Make sure your face clean and dry before applying the free base . Don't forget to do this before your makeup base, powder or other makeup.
3. Choose a matte finish makeup

Another tip is to use a mousse or powder makeup product that provides a matte finish.
  • Look for a moist, oil-free base formula. Choose a scentless mineral option for lasting makeup. This type of product is less likely to clog pores and cause acne.
  • Use a brush or pencil to apply the base. That way, you can absorb excess oil without clogging your pores and creating more oil.
4. Don't use too much powder
If you have oily skin, one important tip is to use all products in moderation. Sure, powder can give you a smoother finish, but if you use too much powder , it can cover your pores and increase your risk of infection or acne.
  • Apply powder only where you need it and don't use too much.
  • It is important to use a translucent matte formula as it can dim the gloss of your skin tone.
  • If you've applied too much powder, moisten a makeup pad and gently tap your skin to remove excess powder.
5. Always carry oil paper
It doesn't matter how flawless your makeup is in the morning or whether it's matte. If you have oily skin, your face will get oily in a matter of hours. In this case, it is best to use oil paper.
  • The secret to using this paper without removing all your makeup is to simply press it against the oily area to remove the oil from your skin.
  • Never rub oil paper on your skin. That way, the paper can absorb oil while keeping the makeup intact.
6. Take off your makeup at the end of the day
It is really important to remove your makeup at the end of the day. Sleeping with makeup overnight can clog pores and create blemishes. Therefore, you must follow the daily routine.
  • Improve skin texture and pore size with a gentle astringent tonic containing salicylic acid.
  • If your skin is even sensitive, you may need to try a few different options first to find one that doesn't irritate your skin.
7. Use sunscreen for oily skin

Many women with oily skin don't use sunscreen because they're worried about too much oil and clogging their pores.
However, it is important to remember that exposure to the sun without sunscreen results in spots, freckles and premature aging.
  • Therefore, women with oily skin should buy a sunscreen gel or light sunscreen with SPF 50 or higher.
Other advice
In addition to following the correct makeup routine, it's important to avoid fast food and sugar. You also need to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and remove toxins.
