Just Keep in mind that every skin type is different and requires a different kind of care. Skin condition may be affected due to various factors. There are some tips listed below for you.
Oily skin is characterized by an excess of oil secretion on the face. There is a touch of grease within few hours of washing your face. For oily skin type, hydration isn’t a significant issue, but blackheads and pimples are. Women with oily skin feel the need to keep washing their face frequently. Here are some tips for you to take care of your skin:
1. Cleanse your face and apply a light moisturizer.
Never skip your skincare routine before applying makeup. Proper cleansing is beneficial for exfoliating your skin, and also even your skin tone texture, making it easier for using foundation and making it look smoother.
Make sure to apply a light-based moisturizing cream or serum to hydrate your skin after a wash. A moisturizing spray may also work as it is very light on the skin. Even though your skin is oily, it still needs some reasonable amount of moisturizing.
2. Use the Right Accessories.
If your skin is prone to acne \, try to use beauty sponges for blending instead of the regular brushes. Sponges blend the foundation or makeup gently and create a thin layer on your skin, making your skin tone look even. Brushes might aggravate the sensitive skin with imperfections and make the spots more visible.
However, it is recommended to use a soft blending brush in areas of sizeable porous skin.
3. Do not overdo with Powder.
Some women tend to apply a lot of powder to their face before makeup for creating a matte look. But this isn’t the right way; it only makes your makeup look cakier and activates the pores to secrete more oil. Try using a translucent setting powder for setting the foundation on your face.
Oily skin doesn’t require extra shine, so avoid using powders with extra sheen. If you must feel the need, apply some highlighter on the areas you wish to accentuate.
4. Do your makeup Touch-up right.
When you’re going for a quick touchup, never rub or apply any additional layers of foundation. The first thing to do is to use a facial blotting paper to get rid of extra oil on your face if any. If any redness shows on your skin, take a tiny drop of concealer and press it down on your skin. You can use a translucent setting powder for specific areas of your skin to make them more prone to shine.
Dry skin is more difficult to care for as it is susceptible and flaky. Foundation may be an add-on to the difficulty and make your skin look more flaky and dry. Don’t worry; we present you some tips:
1. Exfoliate and Hydrate your skin.
Exfoliating your skin is as important as moisturizing your skin. Exfoliating your skin will gently remove all the dry flakes of skin. Avoid the irritation of skin due to various cosmetic products used for makeup.
Make sure the moisturizer you use is rich because the dry skin requires a little extra nourishment. Focus on applying the moisturizer in dry areas of your face like the nose, space between the eyebrows. If you wish to moisturize your skin further, opt for a face mask before using any lotion.
2. Use Cream Products.
Dry skin looks best with cream based makeup products. Powder products absorb moisture and make your skin look drier. For better results add a drop of your regular moisturizer to your foundation and mix it well. A beauty sponge works better for blending your makeup.
3. Don’t Forget Highlighter.
A highlighter is the main component of your makeup palette. It reduces the dryness of your skin. Choose a liquid highlighter for better results and drop it on top of both the cheekbone, the brow-bones, are of cupid-brow and on your nose for adding a little tint of shimmer to it.
Remember a thing that a good highlighter is the one that contains nearly invisible shimmer and light-reflecting particles that are not supposed to be visible on the face and should appear like a healthy and natural glow.
4. Refresh Your Makeup.
For dry skin, it is recommended to keep a moisturizing lotion in handy. If you think your makeup is reneging, it’s better to remove it, apply a moisturizer and then apply the foundation back. If that isn’t possible, use a hydrating mist which will revitalize your skin and make it look more radiant. If that isn’t available either, then apply a small amount of hydrating cream on the driest area of the face. Be careful not to spoil your makeup.
