If you have oily skin, it can be quite frightening and be intimidating to use cosmetics. Not only can they trigger acne, they can also make you look shinier and more greasy.
Fortunately, there are ways for you to stay shine-free even if you’re wearing makeup.
For your makeup products to work for you, one of the first things you need to check is their formulation. As much as possible, stay away from cosmetics that aren’t oil-free and noncomedogenic.
Choose products that are lightweight since anything too heavy can easily clog your pores. Skip fragrances, too, as this ingredient has the potential to cause irritation.
Powder products, like the best bronzer for oily skin, are great for oily skin as well. They can help absorb excess shine and they won’t add more oil to your skin.
To keep your makeup from smudging and wearing off, use a setting powder to lock everything in place. Lightly dust off a small amount of translucent powder using a powder brush or take a sponge and apply the powder using a pressing motion.
Apart from these tips, oily skin will also benefit greatly from proper skin care. To give you an idea on how you should care for your skin type, here’s an infographic to guide you.
