Skin preparation before makeup for oily skin

When you have oily skin, the last thing you want to do is add more oil to your face. Unfortunately, many people mistake not properly prepping their skin before applying makeup. This can lead to a cakey appearance and an overall worsened complexion. We’ll discuss how to best prepare your skin for makeup when you have oily skin in this post.

Cleanse with a cleansing lotion that’s suitable for your skin type

You should choose cleansing lotions especially formulated for oily skin types, don’t use regular cleansers which will dry out your already greasy face – this can lead to acne breakouts! After using it all over the face, rinse thoroughly so that none of the product remains on your face. Avoid using exfoliating scrubs when washing off makeup or cleansing lotion, they are too harsh for the face. Your best bet is to use a wet towel with gentle circular motions around the oilier parts of your face – T-zone, and nose.

Tone your skin

After cleansing, it’s very important to tone the skin before applying makeup. Use a toner specially formulated for oily skin types, but avoid using products containing alcohol as they strip the natural oils from the surface, which will only make matters worse!


Finish off by moisturizing your face with a lightweight, oil-free formula. This product should contain ingredients that soak up excess sebum without burdening or drying out your already oily complexion.

How do I fix my oily makeup?

If you’re like most women, you probably have a few different versions of foundation in your makeup bag to choose from, depending on your skin type. But if your skin is oily, it can be a challenge to find the right one that won’t make you look even greasier by the end of the day. So here are some tips for fixing your oily makeup.

The best way to fix oily makeup is with face powder. Depending on which is more effective in covering the oil, you can use a translucent or an opaque powder. Just pat some of the powder over your face, and away you go! If you don’t have any loose powder, try using white eyeliner or eyeshadow (whichever works better). Dip a small brush into water, then into the powder. Pick up some of the water by tapping the bristles on top of it against your hand. Then gently tap onto your skin where you need coverage; this will help to melt the product onto your skin. For extra hold, keep applying light layers of this mix until you get full coverage.
