Makeup woes of those with an oily skin seem to be never ending. It can be a particularly challenging chore since the oil tends to keep coming back and diminish the staying power of the makeup.
Thus it’s very important to choose the right compact powder for oily skin that will help the foundation set right in.
If you have an oily skin, you should ideally opt for a water based foundation for makeup. But, if you’re not comfortable using a foundation daily, then a concealer and a compact powder should do.
Usually the application of a sunscreen creates a heavy layer on the skin. And due to this, it is very important to keep the face as matte and oil free as possible. That’s where a compact powder comes in handy. It gives your face a matte finish and covers the unevenness in your skin tone depending on the kind of coverage it has. Choose a compact whose shade matches your skin tone. Using a lighter shade may make you feel as if you have a whitish cast over your face!
