Oily skin can be a big problem for you and it requires washing your face throughout the day. If you skip the cleaning process, oil will continue to build up, congest your pores and create a surplus of oil on your face which makes difficult to apply makeup. Here I am listed down some tips for those bridals that have oily skin. Follow these tips and get rid from oily skin on your special occasion.
Before starting anything it is important to do this first and foremost! I recommend you to use Queen Helene’s Oatmeal and Honey scrub. Also suggested is any moderate facial scrub rather than a cream or foam cleanser for this will help get rid of all the dead skin cells. Gel cleansers are great, too.
After each wash always use moisturize before putting on your makeup. This is the key for your makeup to stay on and by this; it will help perfect your look. You want to always stick to oil-free moisturizers, and make sure it is water based. I recommend you to use Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing gel for oily skin. Yes, it really effective for all type of skin.
Ready for Makeup
After applying moisturizer and before using foundation, the key is to use a mattifying primer all over your face to remove any shine. Every oily skin is different, but they should all use an oil-free foundation. It fills in pores very nicely and it leaves a nice finish on the skin. You want to apply the foundation with the palms of your fingertips in order to heat it up a bit. Using a foundation brush or stifling brush might not give you the best coverage. Smash box’s Oil-Free high definition foundation is the best over all other foundations. Mixing a little moisturizer in with the foundation can also make the application more even.
Take a Break
Using a face powder brush, you want to sweep the powder lightly onto the face, making circles on the cheeks. Make sure to target the forehead and bridge of the nose as well. I recommend using powder so that in this way the oils on our face will set in. (Smash box’s Halo Powder and Makeup For Ever HD powder works wonders!) You want to be sure it is a light powder that is in the shade according to your foundation to make it more natural.
