Makeup for oily skin

Processed with VSCO with s2 preset

A couple years ago I spent the better part of my waking hours pouring over makeup and skincare forums looking for a concealer that wouldn’t cake, crease, or disappear on my oily skin. I’d tried the best designer brands out there, and while they were great, after an hour I’d have to smudge it from settling in the creases under my eyes and getting cakey everywhere else. Some people swore by Maybelline’s Fit Me concealer wand, and since it wouldn’t break the bank, I figured I’d give it a try.

And I’ve never used anything else since.

Maybelline approaching me to be an influencer was a happy coincidence, and I was ecstatic about trying more products, and since we’ve worked together I’ve found more products that work great on my oily skin.

The Cover Stick Concealer is great for select heavy coverage, and comes in some color correcting shades as well, like green to cover redness, and yellow for when I need extra dark circle coverage. A little goes a long way, and I find it best to blend with my fingertip, then blot a little with a sponge.

I won’t leave the house without the Superstay Better Skin Powder, not only does it not cake and crease, but it’s pretty self descriptive. It stays, and it has great coverage, not heavy, but if you’re in a hurry you could totally blot this on bare skin and have a natural, even look. Along with blotting sheets, I use this through the day, and find myself needing it less than other compact powders, it actually has staying power.

These three are my must haves for oily, blemish prone skin, out of any product out there, drugstore or designer. Give them a try, let me know what you think!
