How To Make Your Makeup Last All Day For Oily Skin

1. Always use a primer /mattifier. This helps to minimize the appearance of pores. It also makes the makeup last longer while reducing the oil. Here and here are some links to some primers/mattifiers that I would recommend.

2. Go easy on the foundation. Opt for a liquid foundation instead of a cream based one . I have a list of foundations for oily skin here.

3. Don’t overdo your powder. Less is usually more when it comes to powders. It’s better to apply very little powder , so your face doesn’t look cakey and the skin is unable to breathe. I use MAC mineralize skin finish because of it’s light weight formula.

4. Carry blotting paper. This has to be a staple in your bag every time you wear makeup. Use it to dab off oil from your face and your makeup stillstays put all day.

5. Look out for oil free and long wear products. This is very important when you’re buying makeup or beauty products for oily skin. Make sure to check out the label for products that are oil free and will last longer on the skin. This way, you’re investing right and wisely .
