Apply Oil Free Primers

If you have an oily skin then you need to start your makeup with an oil free primer. An oil free primer does not add any extra oil to your face.


Rather it absorbs the oils and acts as a protective sheet on your face and doesn’t allow the makeup to seep through the skin pores. It offers a flawless tone to your face and develops a smooth oil free base for the application of other makeup. Hence, covers your whole face with a thin layer of oil free primer prior to foundation.

Choose Oil Free Powder Foundation or Mineral Foundation

In order to get the best oily skin makeup you need to choose an oil free powder or mineral foundation in the next step. The mineral foundation being a creamy powder like product easily combines with your skin leaving it even and oil free.

The dry particles present in it absorb only the extra moisture of the skin and thus maintain the moisture balance. You can also try out powder foundations. They soak up the extra oil and leave a smooth, matte texture.

Dust with Translucent Powder

One vital step to make your makeup long lasting is the application of powder. Matte translucent powder is ideal for this purpose as it can remove oily shines from all kinds of skin tones.

 Translucent Powder
