How To: Apply Makeup for Oily Skin

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.

Example:  CoverGirl OutLast Lip Stain

Step 10 Lip stain

Use a lip stain on your lips.
