How to Apply Makeup for Oily Skin
Oily skin can make your makeup smear, disappear, and look greasy. Our celebrity makeup artist, Deborah Altizio, shows you how to apply makeup to oily skin in this video.
Step 1 Primer
Use an oil-free primer to prep your face.
Example: CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Serum Primer
Step 2 Foundation
Use a mattifying foundation and apply to your t-zone and other oily areas with a foundation brush.
Example: CoverGirl Clean Oil Control Foundation
Step 3 Blend
Blend the foundation into the rest of your face.
Step 4 Set
Set your makeup with a powder using a brush or a puff.
Example: CoverGirl Professional Loose Powder
Step 5 Waterproof concealer
Apply waterproof concealer under your eyes with a concealer brush.
Step 6 Creamy concealer
Use a small amount of a creamy concealer on blemishes.
Example: CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Concealer
Step 7 Eyeshadow
First use an eyeshadow primer. Then use a long lasting cream eyeshadow and go over with a powder shadow for staying power.
Example: CoverGirl SmokyShadowBlast & CoverGirl Eye Enhancers Shadow Palettes
Step 8 Mascara
Apply waterproof mascara.
Example: CoverGirl LashBlastLength Waterproof Mascara
Step 9 Blush
Use a cheek stain which is ideal for oily skin as it won't move around once applied.
