If you're constantly asking, "why does my face look so oily?" Your pores release oils to prevent the skin from getting dehydrated. Unfortunately, when these oils mix with your makeup, your face can look greasy and shiny.
We have the best foolproof makeup tricks to keep your skin mattified all day. This way, you can always look fresh, dewy, and radiant.
1. Follow a Beauty Routine
The first step for keeping your skin mattified all day is to follow a beauty routine. K-beauty lovers know it's imperative to cleanse, tone, exfoliate, and moisturise the skin daily. Preparing your skin makes it easier to control oil and sebum while keeping your face shine-free.
Wash your face two times daily: in the morning and at night. The ETUDE HOUSE Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Foam cleanses deep inside the pore and carefully exfoliates the skin. This cleanser provides the power cleansing performance of baking soda, removing makeup, dirt, and oil.
After cleansing, use a skin toner. Skin toners are skincare products ideal for people with oily skin as they control sebum production.
You can try BENTON Let's Carrot Oil Toner, which contains nourishing ingredients like carrots and vitamin E. It provides the golden ratio of oil-water balance.
Finally, don't forget to keep your skin hydrated by applying an oil-free, non-comedogenic moisturiser like I'M FROM Vitamin Tree Water Gel. The Vitamin Tree Water Gel is a water-based gel lotion excellent for hydrating and nourishing the skin.
This water gel moisturising lotion is a K-beauty sensation due to its natural and potent formula. It keeps your skin's oil balanced and won't make your face feel greasy. Plus, applying under liquid or powder foundation is a terrific option.
2. Always Use Primer
If you want a matte complexion, starting with a primer is vital. We recommend using a primer with a matte finish to prevent your skin from looking oily.
Primers are beauty products that control excess oil and keep the skin shine-free. They're also excellent mattifiers as they minimise the appearance of pores while hydrating the skin without clogging your pores.
ETUDE HOUSE Mattifying Face Blur is a must-have if you want to control oily skin. This mattifying primer contains Sliding Powder to provide a smooth and velvety finish. It helps your skin become radiant and flawless.
The Mattifying Face Blur has a lightweight coverage over pimples as it has a blurring effect. It's an excellent base for foundation or BB cream.
If you have oily skin, it's vital to use makeup products designed for your skin type. Avoid heavy formulas as they can clog pores. It's best to prefer light, oil-free, and non-comedogenic foundations like PEACH C Honey Glow Cover Cushion.
PEACH C Honey Glow Cover Cushion comes in 2 colours: ivory and beige. This K-beauty formula contains SPF50+ PA+++ to shield the skin from harmful sun rays.
It contains potent and natural ingredients like vitamin C, honey extract, and Viola Tricolour extract. Plus, it's not oily or shiny, providing you with a mattifying look.
4. Powder Up your Makeup
A great way to control shine is to powder up your skin with a setting powder. Setting powders instantly mattifies the skin, and the effect can last up to four hours.
A high-quality powder like INNISFREE No Sebum Moisture Powder can control sebum production keeping your skin healthy.
INNISFREE No Sebum Moisture Powder contains oil absorption powder and mineral sebum control powder. It maintains a healthy oil-and-moisture balance in the skin.
It's free of harmful ingredients, including talc, dioxin, animal raw material, mineral oil, and artificial aroma.
For best results, tap lightly on the face as the last step of makeup. You can also use it whenever you feel your skin oily.
5. Use a Sheet Mask
Oily skin dramatically benefits from using a sheet mask at least once a week. We recommend using MEDIHEAL Tea Tree Care Solution Essential Mask. Tea Tree is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and controls excess sebum production. It's terrific for treating blemishes.MEDIHEAL Tea Tree Care Solution Essential Mask is a K-beauty sheet mask formulated with nourishing ingredients such as tea tree leaf oil, chamomile, and Centella Asiatica extracts.
