If you have oily skin, you know how critical it is to find makeup that won’t slide off your face by noon. Normally, you may gravitate to all powdered products but that doesn’t always have to be the case, as you’ll see below. Before you begin your beauty routine, make sure your skin is properly prepped and moisturized. Contrary to popular belief, hydrating oily skin can actually help regulate oil production, meaning less shine throughout the day. Enough about skincare, let’s get to the fun stuff- makeup!
The first step to achieving your perfect base application starts with your primer. It will help de-shine and refine areas with excess oil, likely your t-zone but possibly other areas as well. This will also help ensure products stay put all day. If you’re looking for a multitasker, try Tinted Primer SPF 30 for a sheer wash of color to even tone and provide mineral SPF protection.
Glo Skin Beauty offers four fantastic base options, but our best-selling Pressed Base is our #1 choice for anyone with oily skin. It’s great for any skin type and gives the most effortless, semi-matte finish. Customize your coverage to suit your personal preference by switching out your brush, more/dense bristles = more coverage.
When handling oily skin, it's important to look for oil free formulas to avoid adding any additional shine. We love Oil Free Camouflage because it conceals, corrects and brightens- all in one product. Applying mineral concealer after your base may seem strange but it actually helps you use less product, since your base will likely be enough to correct most blemishes and redness. Use your fingers or a brush, like Full Coverage Camouflage Brush, depending on your desired coverage.
Ensure your foundation lasts all day by using a setting powder to finish your look. Perfecting Powder is a great match for Pressed Base, It eliminates shine without leaving you dry or cakey. Don’t be afraid to use multiple times throughout the day, it’s ultra fine minerals deliver a smooth, creamy application every time.
You were probably expecting us to recommend a powder blush here, as that is what’s most common for oily skin but thanks to the wonderful ingredient, Kaolin Clay, Cream Blush can be part of any oily skin girl (or guy’s) beauty repertoire. For a quick and easy application, use clean fingertips to dab on the apples of your cheeks. If you have a little more time, apply with Dual Fiber Cheek Brush and set with a complementary powder blush shade for extra staying powder.
Our traditional Lipstick formula is unlike any you've ever tried. Just like Cream Blush, it also includes Kaolin Clay, meaning it’s ultra long-lasting. With 20 shades to choose from you can create any look you want, from bold reds to soft pinks, to warm neutrals. Plus, it has a magnetic closure cap, meaning color won't slide off your lips or in your purse!
Knowing that your makeup won’t interfere with your skincare is a great feeling. All of our products are talc-free, paraben-free and cruelty-free and were created with even the most sensitive skin types in mind. Like we said earlier, starting with appropriately prepped skin can mean all the difference when it comes to applying products on oily skin. Learn more about our top skincare products for oily skin.
