How To Make Sure Your Makeup Stays Oil-Proof This Summer
I have oily skin year round, so if I don’t take special care to ensure my skin stays as matte as possible, my face will produce enough oil to fry a whole chicken. With that being said, I’ve compiled a list f products I use to keep skin matte, but it begins with skincare.
I recommend that you find a skincare routine that is meant to combat oily skin. I’ve shared some of my favorite products in this post. But I have to take a minute to shout out Trader Joe’s Spa Tea Tree Oil Cleanser. This stuff is amazing at removing makeup, and keeping my face oil free. Top it off with a toner, moisturizer (YES you need to moisturize oily skin), and a serum (Vitamin C), and you’ll be golden.
Now let’s talk makeup primers. The following primers are ones that I have personally tried and find to be the most effective in keeping my face oil-free during the hot summer months. I won’t lie, there have been times that I have combined two or more of these at once. You’re going to have to try them individually or mix and match to find the best combination for your skin.
The absolute best at keeping your face oil-free. However, Milk of Magnesia can do a number on your skin. After all, it’s meant to be ingested, not applied topically to your skin.That being said, I always apply a primer beneath milk of magnesia to make sure my skin is protected. Even still, I wouldn’t recommend it for daily use. I use it for filming tutorials and on days when I know I won’t be able to blot my skin. If you’re getting married or attending a summer wedding, use it! Buy it at your local pharmacy or HERE.
A great alternative to Milk of Magnesia. Just like MOM, it’s cheap and can be purchased at any drugstore in the US. While it doesn’t work as well as MOM, it’s safe to use on the skin and it’s actually pretty great at clearing up acne! Check out how to apply it HERE and Shop for it HERE.
One of only two high-end primers that actually work. Buy it HERE.
It works, it works really well. When I really want to go absolutely shine-free I mix this with MOM as well. Buy it HERE.
