Just because you have oily skin doesn't mean you have to stop wearing makeup. It's all about understanding what works for your skin type. We've all been there: it's lunchtime, and your face looks like it could fry chicken on it. But don't panic, you can have makeup that lasts all day and yet looks great if you have oily skin. These five suggestions from a beauty artist and a doctor are professional makeup solutions for those with oily skin. 

Make It A Habit To Exfoliate Once A Week

The quality of your makeup is just as excellent as the foundation you use. Exfoliation on a weekly basis, maybe with a mask or peel, will help maintain your skin smooth and free of dead skin. There are several skin care techniques to try; give them a go! When you apply makeup on dry, flaky skin, you'll quickly uncover a major issue — coverage that's worse than your mobile phone plan! 

Why is this the case? You most likely haven't been exfoliating. Exfoliating your skin before applying makeup is one of the top celebrity makeup artist tips for close-up skin. But you don't have to be Kim Kardashian to use this advice.

Hydrating Your Skin

Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, which means it attracts water into your skin and aids in moisture retention. It hydrates your skin from within, and when your skin is moisturised, your oil glands are less likely to fly into overdrive. Make sure your skin care routine is as effective as it can be.

Waterproof Mascara

I understand. Waterproof mascara is difficult to remove and might clump if not applied correctly. However, you'll thank yourself after you've gone 15 hours and your lashes still look as amazing as they did when you first applied them. Wiggle your mascara wand as you move it up your lashes to help spread the substance and prevent clumping.

Use A Matte Primer

Instead of applying foundation straight to your face, use a primer to help the foundation cling to your skin and stay in place all day. Extra tip: You may also use primer on days when you don't want to apply makeup to keep your skin looking smooth and natural.

Opt For Long-Wear Foundations

As your skin produces enough oil, avoid products with oil on the ingredient list. Look for foundations that claim to be long-lasting. They use particular formulas and chemicals to protect your makeup from smudging.

Say No To Thick Layers

Whether you want a natural appearance or a full-on glam, don't overdo it with foundation or other cosmetics. Work in light layers, only adding more where there is an issue or where you need more coverage. Light layers can help your makeup remain longer and avoid the "cakey" effect.
