It’s trickier to deal with a face looking like a pool of oil, especially when it comes to makeup application. When you apply makeup on a greasy-looking face, it not only makes the application difficult but also makes it meltdown sooner on your face. If you have oily skin and are clueless about how to deal with applying makeup on your face, check out these tips on how to do Makeup On Oily Skin.

Cleanse and exfoliate

Always ensure before using makeup on oily skin start with a cleansed and exfoliated face so that all the dirt, grime, dead skin cells, blackheads, whiteheads, and sebum gets thoroughly removed. Cleanse your skin every time before you apply makeup and exfoliate two-three times a week.

Moisturize your skin

It’s a myth that oily skin doesn’t need a moisturizer. The key is to use an oil-free moisturizer that keeps oil at bay while keeping your skin hydrated. Check for options that have oil-controlling ingredients that would mattify yet keep your skin nourished while applying makeup on oily skin.


Prime your face


When you use a primer before applying makeup, it makes your makeup last throughout the day without any meltdowns. The Insight Cosmetics 3-in-1 Primer is the best primer to apply before makeup on oily skin because it is smooth & blurs out any imperfections on your face and makes your makeup last all day long.

Use a mattifying foundation

When you have oily skin, you would want to use a mattifying foundation that would keep your skin matte and oil-free. One such foundation is the Insight Cosmetics Stay Matte Foundation that prevents your skin from looking greasy and keeps the oil at bay.

Use a long-wear foundation

If you do not like the matte finish on your face, you can try using a long-wear foundation that would give you a natural finish all day long, such as the Insight Cosmetics Daily Wear Concealer Foundation. It gives you medium to full coverage and controls sweat and oil. Since it’s a concealer plus foundation, you can choose to skip the concealer and use this instead to save your time.

Set the base with a mattifying powder

To keep your foundation in place, it is crucial to set it with a powder. When you do makeup on oily skin, you need to take an extra step by using a mattifying compact or translucent face powder to set your base in place. Sweep on a little powder all across your face to keep it oil-free all day long.

Set your makeup in place

A setting spray is a boon amongst all makeup products since it increases the longevity of your makeup. Spritz some makeup setting spray onto your face to keep your makeup in place throughout the day. For setting up makeup try out Insight Cosmetics Makeup Fixer.

Use blotting papers

If you feel that your face is getting oilier during the day, keep some blotting sheets handy to blot away the excess from your face. Blotting sheets are amazing for your midday touch-ups.
