Excess production of oil on the skin plus make-up are not the best combinations, this is why your make up melts after a short while, making your overall look faded coupled with makeup products barely staying on your face for as much as you want. If you have a very oily skin, it is no news that your T-zone turns out to be the oil manufacturer making those areas shiny as a result of excess oil and the worst of all is that makeup plus oily skin tends to oxidise faster, that is your foundation becoming a shade or two darker after application. With oily skin, it is difficult to keep your makeup looking fresh but I've got some tips that will help in minimizing this problem.


One with an oily skin should never plaster foundation on the face without priming the areas that produce more oil as primers form a protective layer between your skin and the products and it helps your make-up last longer. Using a mattifying eye primer in other to avoids your eyeshadow from creasing could also come handy.


This should always be found in the purse of one with an oily skin as it comes handy when you have to lift excess oil from your face, with this you don't have to mess with your already made beat while trying to get the oil off the face.


This seems like the way out for one with an oily skin but the truth is far from this as an excess powder mixed with oil from your skin gives a very cakey finish, which is not something anyone wants.


Deep cleansing is a great habit for one with oily skin must exhibit because this way you get rid of the dirt and impurities that are hiding or deeply locked down beneath your pores. I would recommend products that will respond mildly on your skin, you don't need products that will dry out your skin and this is because once your skin is dried out your skin feels the need to produce more oil.


When you go a long time without washing or disinfecting your makeup applicators, bacterias start to grow on them and using this same object on your face exposes you to germs that will eventually cause all sorts of irritation on your face. The worst of all is that your makeup products also stand the chance of getting infected as they also come in contact with your make up applicators such as brushes, blending sponges, puffs etc.. In other to save yourself this issues, it is best to clean your makeup applicators at least once in a month. You can do this by washing them with soap and water to get excess product off, after which you can prepare a bath with look warm water in which you will place them for at least 20minutes, it is best to leave them to dry without exposing them directly under the sun.
