6 easy ways to get rid of oily skin

Applying makeup on oily skin is tricky but making sure your makeup stays in place all day is a whole different story.

With excess oil, your cosmetics can easily wear off and slide off of your skin. This isn’t only frustrating but embarrassing, too.

To make sure that doesn’t happen, you need to know exactly how to apply and set your makeup.

Start off with a good primer. It will give you a smoother base to work on and it will keep your makeup on longer.

For your foundation, apply it in light layers and build up the coverage as you go. Don’t apply it too thickly as that can block your pores and make your skin worse.

Apply your bronzer and blush using a dabbing motion. Brushing the products on your skin can move your foundation and that’s the last thing you want to happen.

When setting your makeup, you can use a translucent powder for oily skin. Simply dust off a good amount on your skin using a brush or apply it with a puff.

Another good option is a makeup setting spray. There are setting sprays that are formulated to control oil and keep your skin matte all day. Try Barry M Make Mist and Fix matte finish spray (£4.99 at Asos)

As well as focusing on how you apply your makeup, you should also pay close attention to how you take care of your skin. To help you start a proper skin care routine for oily skin, follow the great tips in this infographic by Hannah Do from Thankyouskin.
