How to Apply Makeup on Oily Skin

When you have an oily skin, your attention is focused mostly on how to stop the oil, or at least reduce it. You’re a bit skeptical about apply makeup because, well, when the oil mixes with the makeup, that’s not a good sight to behold. But having an oily skin is no reason to forgo makeup. You just have to know how to apply, that’s all. Here’s a step-by-step process of applying makeup on an oily skin, and making it last all day.

First, let’s prepare the ground. 

Wash Your Face

Before you start applying makeup, there is need to prepare the ground. And that’s where face cleansing comes in. But before you apply a cleanser, first rinse your face with warm water. This removes the oil and dirt on the skin. Then apply an oil-free cleanser to get rid of dead skin. Rub gently but thoroughly. Then rinse your face again with warm water, and pat dry with a clean towel. 

Use a Toner

Toner helps to get rid of the remaining dirt and oil still remaining on your face. Use an alcohol-free toner, soak cotton wool with it, and dab your face with it. Then let it dry up.


Excess oil is produced when the glands feel there’s not enough oil. Moisturizing will keep it from producing too much, but make sure the moisturizer you’re using is oil-free. 


Wet your face, then put some exfoliating product on it. Then rinse out with warm water, and pat dry. Exfoliating helps get rid of dead skin cells and oils clogging your skin pores. Choose one that is oil-free, and contains salicylic acid. 

Now on to applying makeup 

Use a Primer

Apply primer thinly on your face, don’t neglect any part. Primers help prepare a foundation for the makeup you’re about to apply. It helps make sure the makeup sticks, and doesn’t wash off your face. Choose a mattifying, and oil-free primer. 

Conceal the Spots

If there are black spots on your face, cover that part first before you apply the general makeup. Concealers help to cover the spots and also prevent them from spreading. Use a concealer brush to cover the spots.

Apply Foundation

Foundations give you an even complexion and, at the same time, keep your skin from producing more oil that can ruin the perfect look you're trying to achieve. Apply a thin layer with makeup brush, the rub in circular motion. Check the label before you buy. Get oil-free, non-comedogenic, and mattifying foundation. 

Add Some Loose Powder 

Apply loose powder on the foundation you just applied. It provides an additional barrier against excess oil production. Pour some in a container, swirl a brush around in the container until all the powder is gone, then dab your face with the brush. 

Finishing Touches

Add a flush to your cheek with a mattifying blush to give your cheeks a glow.
