If you have oily skin it`s pretty hard to find a good foundation that will last without migrating throughout the day. In that case, you’re probably looking for a matte foundation for oily skin.
The problem with oily skin is, it rarely lasts and at the same time, it has the capacity to move around, discolorate, smudge, and shine. Therefore, if you didn’t choose the right and best product for your oily skin , then it looks unprofessional and negligent. So, you need to pay more attention and choose quality products that are best for your particular skin problem.
5 Steps to a Matte foundation for oily skin:
It is somewhat more difficult to wear makeup on oily skin, and while masking the problem it won’t last. The solution is a strict skincare regime and the use of a foundation that is especially designed for oily skin. I would recommend a matte foundation for oily skin, a healthy diet and good skincare if you want the results to last longer.
Here, I’m going to give you the step-by-step application of matte foundation for oily skin.
If you have acne prone skin i`d recommend seeing a doctor first because in 90% of cases the problem is hormonal.So unless you treat the problem internally it will keep showing up externally.
Step #1: Clean the skin
Use an exfoliating scrub to clean pores and prevent acne, to remove dead cells from the surface of the skin and remove excess oil.Try to choose an exfoliating product that contains salicylic acid, because it has the capacity kill acne-causing bacteria.
Step #2: Use toner
After exfoliating the skin, use a toner, also for oily skin. It will help dry out your natural extra moisture and keep your oils at bay as it closes your pores.
Step #3: Use moisturizer
If your skin is very oily, then toner itself will not be enough to keep your face dry throughout the day. Use a mattifying moisturizer to keep the skin from getting oily. Using a wrong moisturizer will make your skin oily and shiny, so again, make sure you choose a moisturizer for oily skin.
Step #4: Application of the actual foundation
After letting all the previous products sink into the skin for 15-20 minutes you can begin to apply the actual foundation, wich should be a matte foundation for oily skin.I wouln`t recommend using your fingers for this if you have acne prone skin. You`re just gonna transfer the bacteria from your hands to your already irritable skin. Instead use a flat kabuki brush or a sponge, and don`t just rub it on your face but stipple it on. It will give you an even and better coverage and a flawless finish.
Step #5: Matte pressed powders
After you apply your foundation you need to set it with a matte pressed powder . A matte pressed powder is a must if you want to prevent excessive oil and shiny skin. Apply the matte pressed powder using a cotton pad and make sure that you don’t smudge your foundation or move it around.
For the rest of the makeup keep in mind using powder products and not liquids, such as powder blushes, eye shadows an waterproof mascara.
