Some girls think that if they have oily skin, then they have to give up makeup forever. In fact, you just need to know what is right for a particular skin type. The following eight ideas from expert makeup artists and dermatologists will help you create really cool make-up, even with very oily skin.
1. First of all, you should always apply the base
“If you have oily skin, using a foundation will help your entire make-up stay in place,” explains Los Angeles-based makeup artist Emily Keith Warren.
Apply foundation to at least the oiliest areas (usually the forehead, nose, and chin) with an oil-free, shiny primer. It should be used after cleansing the face, but before applying foundation, powder, or other cosmetics.

2. Prepare your eyes
To reduce the “drips” of makeup in the corners of the eyes, do not “fill” the eyelids with a concealer, which, according to makeup artists, do many women with dark circles or redness under the eyes.
Instead, use a primer specifically designed for your eyelids. This foundation will create the ideal conditions for applying eyeshadow and get rid of excess oily skin around the eyes all day long.
3. Do not overdo it with powder
Sounds like you need to apply powder to your face. But overdoing it can backfire, causing the pores to expel more fat.
The powder should only be applied to areas shiny with grease. In this case, it is worth using a matte translucent powder.
If you have applied too much powder, you can moisten a makeup sponge and blot excess makeup with it.
4. Carry facial wipes with you
Regardless of how flawless and matte your makeup looks in the morning, if your skin is prone to oily, you will notice a shine by noon.
Some blotting wipes are simply designed to remove oil from the skin. After others, a little powder remains on the face, which absorbs fat.
The trick to using face wipes without removing makeup is to press the napkin against the oily area and then “roll” it off the skin, rather than rub the paper against the skin.
Since the skin naturally produces more oil than it needs, it’s worth purchasing makeup (especially foundation and blush) that are oil-free and non-comedogenic, which means they don’t clog pores.
In addition, you should use facial cleansers and toners that contain glycolic acid to reduce excess oil. Another good drug to consider is salicylic acid.
6. Look for “long-lasting” cosmetics
Water and grease can destroy or smudge makeup. It is for this reason that you need to choose eye cosmetics that are waterproof, water-resistant, and durable.
One of the best combinations is a waterproof eyeliner and a creamy eyeshadow eye shadow (applied over a foundation/primer).
7. Achieve a soft, not smooth skin
“Heavy” anti-aging creams are good for overnight use. And before applying makeup, it is best to take a lighter moisturizer that moisturizes without leaving a greasy residue.
Also, do not forget about sunscreen, and find one that does not contain oils. After applying the cream, you need to place a tissue on your face and press lightly to remove excess before applying the makeup base.
8. Reduce excess fat
It is a good idea to use a healing mask once or twice a week. Those made with kaolin or bentonite clay are best for oily skin as they absorb oil and impurities naturally while soothing irritation.
You need to apply about a quarter of the mask with your fingers, leave for 10-15 minutes, and then rinse with warm water.
