Applying makeup on oily skin isn’t that hard

That is if you know exactly what will work for your skin type.

Use anything with fragrance, oil or strong chemicals and you can easily cause mayhem to your skin. There’s a really good chance you can end up with acne, clogged pores and more oil.

For your skin type, it’s a good idea to read product labels. Since brands and companies aren’t always honest with their claims, reading the fine prints will give you a clearer idea on what you’re applying on your skin.

Apart from ingredients, you should also be careful about formulations. Take, foundations, for example.

The best long lasting foundation for oily skin is one that has good oil-control and mattifying properties. It should offer good coverage without suffocating your pores.

Avoid anything that has a dewy finish as it can make your face look shinier.

For blushes and bronzers, choose those that are in powder form. They can help absorb excess grease and keep your skin matte all day.

In addition to these tips, you should also be conscious of how you are taking care of your skin. Proper skin care can help get rid of oily skin and this infographic is a good place to start.
