If you find yourself facing a whole heap of shine every time you look in the mirror, you might just have oily skin. Oily skin produces an excess of sebum, resulting in a shiny, sometimes greasy-looking complexion, especially in the T-zone – and when you pair an oily complexion with skin that’s on the sensitive side, you’ll be on the hunt for makeup for oily skin. Luckily, you’re in the right place – Innoxa has a wide range of targeted products, including sensitive skin concealer, powder and foundation for oily skin.
If you’re wondering what makeup to use for oily skin, we’ve got you covered. When your skin feels like an oil slick, heavy formulations are best swapped for gentle, light products designed for oily-skinned babes – and we have the best light makeup for oily skin. It’s also a good idea to look out for non-comedogenic products, meaning they won’t clog your pores because, as anyone with an oily complexion knows, this skin type can be prone to breakouts and acne.
Ready to get applying? After cleansing and moisturising with skincare designed for oily skin, start with a pore refining, mattifying primer. This is the key to preventing excess sebum from building up and stopping shine in its tracks. This step will also help keep your makeup in place from the get-go, meaning you can avoid the dreaded makeup slide that oily-skinned folks know all too well.
Next up, it’s time to create your clean and clear base – and for that, you’re going to want to choose a lightweight oily skin foundation along with a concealer that won’t cake and wrinkle. At Innoxa, we have plenty of great sensitive skin concealers to pick from that are ideal for an oily complexion. Apply your oily skin foundation with a makeup brush or damp beauty sponge.
Another of the best makeup products for oily skin that’s prone to reactions is a sensitive skin setting spray or finishing powder. These makeup bag beauties work harder and smarter, helping lock your look in place and delivering nourishing skin benefits while they’re at it. Powder formulations are ideal for an oily complexion, or choose a pore refining, mattifying facial mist.
On top of offering the best makeup for oily skin, Innoxa also has an animal-friendly guarantee, with all products in our range certified cruelty-free, as well as being dermatologically tested by an independent body.
