What's the right foundation for oily skin?

If you have oily skin and are looking for make-up ideas for everyday wear or a special event, we've put together a beauty routine to perfect your skin type in the sweep of a brush.

Make-up routine for oily skin

When it comes to oily skin, start by applying the Instant Poreless mattifying primer with Arbutus extract to absorb excess sebum. As well as being an amazing make-up base, it blurs pores and provides a matte finish – perfect for those selfies! The next step is to apply the Everlasting Foundation to even out and smooth the complexion, leaving it with a glowing, matte finish. Available as a liquid or powder foundation for very oily skin types, you can apply it using a brush or sponge depending on the coverage you need.

Another key step for enhancing your complexion is the Pore Perfecting Mattifying Kit. This handy kit can be slipped into your bag and used on the go. Its sheer, multi-purpose powder sets foundation and balances sebum, while the little blotting papers are ideal for absorbing shine. The result? Pores are blurred, the complexion smoothed.

Finally, put some colour in your cheeks with the Joli Blush, a perfect blend of mineral and plant extracts for a buildable healthy glow and attractive matte finish. For the finishing touch, add a little Fix’ Make-up, a fine mist enriched with aloe vera, grapefruit and organic rosewater extracts to set your make-up and keep it looking good around the clock.
