7 Ways to Make Makeup Last on Oily Skin ...


If you have oily skin like me and you’re looking for tips to make makeup last, you’ll want to get in on these useful tips!

Having oily skin can be a challenge at times but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun wearing makeup!

We just have to be a little more picky when it comes to products and find what works for us!3

1. Protect

Before we learn: how to make makeup last on oily skin and what products to use, let’s not forget about sunscreen! No matter what type of skin you have, you want to protect your beautiful skin! Look for sunscreens that offer broad spectrum (UVA and UVB) protection, have at least SPF 15 and are lightweight and oil-free.

2. Prime

These tips to make makeup last wouldn’t be complete without primers.

You've probably already used face and eye primers, but sometimes I like to take it a step further by adding another mattifying cream to my T-zone.

Some ladies find that traditional primers just don’t work for them so they use things like Aloe Vera gel and Monistat as face primer or lip balm.

Oh yes, I am serious about the Monistat.

You can even use these two products as an eye primer!

Experiment and see what works best for you, even if something sounds unconventional, it could work great for you!

3. Lighten up

When you’re learning how to make makeup last, know what foundations work best for your skin type!

Thicker foundations might seem like the way to go since you want a long-lasting finish but actually, staying on the sheerer side is better!

Look for oil-free foundations and even when the temperature drops, don’t go too heavy to avoid clogging your poor pores!

4. Powder

A tip to make makeup last that might seem a little counter-intuitive is to go easy on the powder.

It sounds a little crazy, right?!

I know, but too much powder can look cakey, fake and make your pores produce even more oil!

You can apply powder all over your face to set foundation, but keep it sheer and only focus on the areas that get shiny for a sheer, sexy look!
