How to Get Flawless Skin Oily Acne Prone

Prep the skin for makeup. Start with a good cleanser and toner for oily skin. To get the glowy dewy look you can follow up with the Glow Recipe Watermelon Dew Drops. Next moisturize the skin. Cerave makes an amazing moisturizer! It is great for under makeup. It’s light weight and very matte. The final step is to conceal dark spots and BOOM! You’re done!

Looking good is not about spending a lot of money or using pounds of product on your face. Less is always more. When the skin has texture, using makeup won’t make it appear flat. What is doable is an even complexion. Acne or not, correcting uneven tones throughout the face makes a world of difference.

Flawless black skin that is oily acne prone is achieved with a good skin care regimen and a little makeup. Using a lot of makeup will not help the skin look flawless, smooth, or natural. If not properly removed, too much makeup can definitely worsen acne.
