The worst part about having an oily complexion is that your makeup seems to slide right off every afternoon – it’s like clockwork! It’s no fun having to deal with watching your carefully applied makeup start looking like an impressionist painting, but luckily there are four products that can help you get a grip on the situation. Add them to your list of must-haves.
1. Primer. A primer is ideal because it helps to zap shine. Your makeup will also stick around for a lot longer.
2. Powder. After your makeup’s been applied, sweep on a translucent powder. It’s an extra layer of grease-sucking goodness that’ll keep your face from melting.
3. Setting spray. keeps your foundation, eyeshadow, blush and powder in place, stops shine and gets rid of that cakey look that the powder might leave behind. It’s truly worth it to add this extra step to your routine.
4. Blotting papers. For on-the-go fixes, blotting papers are your BFFs. Stash a pack in your purse and use one when things get oily. They won’t even mess up your makeup!
