Simple Everyday Makeup for Oily Skin
STEP 1 – PREP
An error proof prep for oily skin makeup is to have a good skin care routine. A minimal skin care routine is to cleanse, tone and moisturize. Bobbi Brown has a 2-N-1 moisturizer that smells divine. It is a makeup primer and moisturizer in one.
STEP 2 – FOUNDATION
The best foundations for oily skin are matte. One of my favorite foundations is the CHANEL flawless finish. The formula is absolutely amazing. There is no such thing as using too much of this foundation. The more you use, the better it looks. It is truly buildable!
STEP 3 – HIGHLIGHT
Concealers are my favorite makeup product. They are so versatile! I use concealers to define and sharpen the brow shape, as an eyeshadow primer, to color correct, to fix makeup mistakes, cover blemishes, and my number one reason .. to highlight! The Lancome Ultra Wear is my newest favorite.
STEP 4 – POWDER
Powders not only set the makeup but also take away shine and if tinted can add color. There are so many powders to choose from. When selecting a powder make sure it is finely milled. Beauty Bakerie Translucent Powder is super fine and works wonders.
STEP 5 – BRONZE
Bronzers really help the makeup look cohesive. No complexion is a solid even tone. There are different tones and textures throughout the face. Bronzers adds depth back into the face after foundation. The LYS matte bronzer livens up the skin.
