Oily Skin Care


Always use cosmetics designed exclusively for oily skin.
Foundations:  Buy that suit oily skin. Always choose a full-coverage matte foundation as it is more durable when compared to light or medium coverage foundations. Do not use your fingers to apply foundation instead use a make-up sponge as fingers can transfer more oil to your face. Always pick a foundation that is one shade lighter than your skin tone.

Powder: Apply pressed powder after applying the foundation, this will reduce the greasy look and lend your face a fresh look. Do not use loose powder as it does not offer as much coverage as pressed powder does. Use powders that offer full-coverage. Use matte variety pressed powder as it is exclusively designed for oily skin. You should lightly press the powder into your face rather than smoothing it over. Smothering the powder on your face can weaken the foundation.  Keep applying pressed powder every two hours; this will help your skin to fight oil all through the day.

Blush: Choosing a blush is not as difficult as choosing a foundation or powder. When you have chosen the right type of foundation and powder, you can settle in for any type of powder blush. Choose a pressed powder blush. Do not use cream and liquid blushes, as they can accentuate the greasiness. Always apply blush with a make-up brush.  Do not use your fingers or a powder puff to apply blush.  Blush should be a shade lighter than the shade you wish to realize, this will reduce the darkening of the skin due to oiliness.

Eye makeup: Making up the eye is indeed a complicated job for women with oily skin. Lines and creases form in the fold of the eyelid a few hours after applying eye liner and shadow.

  • Remember to apply foundation and pressed powder to your eyelids before you apply eye make-up.

  • Use pressed powder eye shadows.

  • Do not use eye shadows in cream or liquid forms.

  • Do not use a liquid eye liner as it will smudge easily.

  • Use an eye pencil after applying the liner; apply some shadow on top of it to lock the color.
