Oily skin cannot provide a canvas for wearing a long-lasting makeup. Do you worry about your makeup cannot hold all day? Do you fear to see an oily and shiny face with messy makeup in the mirror? Here are some makeup tips for oily skin!

(1) Apply Face and Eye Primers

A primer is a must for oily skin to control oil and reduce shine on face. Apply a thin layer of oil-free and water-based primer to your face, especially T-zone, forehead, nose and chin. It can smoothen your pores and make your skin look silky. Don’t use concealer to prime your eyelids. Apply an eye primer to your lids for absorbing crease-causing oil. Primers can help to hold the makeup all day long.

(2) Choose an Oil-free Foundation

Use a foundation for oily skin type. Liquid or powder-based foundation should be oil-free and mattifying. Just use a sponge to apply a thin layer of foundation. Thick foundation will fade and smudge easily. Mineral powder foundation is also a good choice for oily or acne-prone skin. Please keep your eyelids from the foundation.

Oily eyelids are the common problem for oily skin. You should avoid kohl eyeliner and choose a waterproof gel/liquid eyeliner and waterproof mascara to prevent it makes a mark on your eyelid crease.
