Oily Skin Makeup


Usually who has the oily skin (or even mixed) believes that make up can further accentuate this feature or even make the skin brighter than ever, which is a mistake. Makeup does not stimulate the production of skin oils! Knowing all types of coverage can help when choosing the base type.

Before makeup it is good to remember that it is essential to use products for cleansing, toning and moisturizing the skin. There is no point in doing a beautiful make-up if under it there is a badly treated and without veined skin. Choose hypoallergenic and oil free products. Another tip is to check with the product label if it is specific to your skin type, which can be dry, normal, mixed or oily.

Daily, both in the morning and at night it is essential to cleanse the skin well and at night remove all makeup before bed. Hydration is also super important for the fight against aging.


THE makeup for oily skin It should be light and smooth. Always prefer liquid coatings (concealer and foundation), which are best suited for light coverage without leaving a heavy and artificial look to the makeup.

The concealer only and exclusively serves to correct minor imperfections or soften spots that are isolated. It is also valid to apply this product in the corner of the eyes, nose and mouth, where naturally the skin is darker. Always in small quantities and with light strokes, without dragging. The color of the concealer may be a lighter shade of skin. For severe cases of dark circles, opt for a concealer that also works as a light diffuser? illuminator? It also treats the region by irrigating or dilating blood vessels and illuminating the look. Remember to opt for a liquid concealer that is easily found on the market.

To even out the skin, use the foundation over the entire face. This product can also be found in several options, but the most suitable is the liquid. To fully match the tone of this product to your face, test by applying a small amount over your forehead until dry. If there is a color difference, change it! Also pay special attention to the base application movements: respect the muscular tissue of the face, so the product should be applied from the inside out, upwards and neck upwards.


Oily skin has excessive shine, especially in the T-zone (forehead, nose and chin), so dust is critical to controlling shine. If you have normal to dry skin, apply only to the T zone (forehead, nose and chin). Always apply a more generous amount, even if your skin initially looks drier than normal. Applying a larger amount ensures the matt aspect and fixes the makeup longer. It is also important to reapply the product whenever you notice the onset of glow on the skin. To finalize the coverage of a perfect skin, apply an illuminating product over creases or expression marks, thus having an optical effect that disguises and eliminates these characteristics.

Oily skin has larger pores than normal skin. So heavy coverage can? Clog? these pores, compromising the makeup finish. All skin covering products (except dust) must be liquid and oil-free, so-called "oil-free". There are products suitable for all skin types, so invest in good products so that you can make the most of each one of the best.

Good luck!
