About the Expert
Hi, I'm Daniela Rowson. I'm a makeup artist, and I'm going to show you how to make makeup stay on longer with oily skin. So, the products that we will need are: a matte foundation, blotting powder, a good powder brush, and a foundation brush. Our first step will be putting on the foundation, and I picked a matte foundation so that the oils don't show up as much. And it's pretty good coverage so it helps with the oiliness. So we want to get just a tiny bit and with our foundation brush, just make little swirls and start applying it on your face. And this will help control the oils in your skin. And a little bit goes a long way. You don't want to put too much foundation on. If you see that it looks streaky, it's because you're using too much foundation. Our next step will be our blotting powder. And this is a loose powder. It's a little bit lighter. You already have a really good coverage, so you don't need too much of a heavy powder. And this one is really good for oily skin because it absorbs the oils, and because it is light, you can apply it throughout the day without building up too much color and foundation on there. And you want to mainly put it in the areas where you're most oily, which is usually your T zone area. So make sure if you have really oily skin and you want to make your foundation last throughout the day that you use a really good blotting powder, something that's lighter so if you were to touch up your skin it's not going to build up. You can also get blotting tissues. Those are actually really good, that way you don't have to touch your makeup and it just takes all the oil excess off your skin. My name is Daniela Rowson, and thanks for watching.
