If you have oily skin
, you know it’s a daily battle to get your makeup to stay on and stay fresh looking all day. Choosing the right makeup is important, but there are several things you can do that will help give your makeup a fighting chance of looking good all day!
The first step is to cleanse your skin with an oil-reducing cleanser. Use lukewarm water to clean and rinse your skin thoroughly. Then follow up with a toner – it will close your pores and fight excess oil production. Then apply your makeup when the toner has dried.
Use a primer on your eye lids to keep your eye makeup from creasing. Make sure your primer is specifically made for eyelids. It will absorb excess oils through the day and keep your eye makeup looking fresh. Toner is fine for your face and neck, but is too harsh for the delicate eye area.
Treat Oily Skin to Restore Your Original Look
• If you have oily skin
, you’ve probably tried to add more powder throughout the day to cut the shine and refresh the look. A few applications of powder on oily skin and you begin to look like you’re preparing for a masquerade party. Don’t do it. Try blotting papers. They lift the oil from your skin and restore your makeup to the original look.
• Use oil-free foundation, powder and blush, and be sure they are noncomedogenic, meaning they don’t clog your pores. Look for Eminence products
designed to stay where you put them and not smear or crease.
• No matter how oily your skin may be, use a moisturizer that contains a sunscreen or both a moisturizer and a sunscreen. Choose oil-free formulas. Serums can hydrate without feeling greasy. After you apply, press a tissue flat on your face to remove excess before you put your makeup on.
• At least once a week, use a mask to reduce oil production and clear pores. Apply to damp skin, leave on for 10-15 minutes, and then rinse off with lukewarm water.
