Hey guys , so today I decided to do a post based on facial/ make-up products. All these products were not purchased on the same day unfortunately, I managed to discover all of them within a year after test and trial of numerous products which did not work for my skin type as it is very oily.
I was inspired to do this post so I can help those who also struggle with oily skin when they wear make-up, girls that are tired of re-touching their make-up every half an hour and people that get oily very quickly and their make-up suddenly looks undesirable. Well let me just guarantee you that these products will definitely give you a matte finish look you need and want which will last all day long, makes your make up stay in place and prevents the skin from producing excessive oil.
The first product is a deep cleansing gel which I purchased in Westfield from a cosmetic station called ONSEN. I use this cleansing gel twice a day, this product helps purify my skin and it really penetrates into your skins cleanses it controls the oil in your skin. (it has lasted me 6 months since purchase)
Lancome has become very popular as it now caters for all skin types including Women of colour. When I purchased this foundation I mentioned I wanted a matte skin finish and that I had very oily skin. This product is definite essential. It applies on very lightly, smooth and literally lasts all day.
NO7 – Beautifully Matte
MAC- Creme Matifiante
No7 beautifully matte has to be one of my favourite products, a little goes a long way and the best way to use this product and get the desired results is to mix it with your foundation.This make-up base also works for oily foundations and give amazing results.
The MAC velvet cream is an excellent mattifier is gives you a smooth matte finish and has a velvet feel to it, and also very light and soft. Apply onto skin before the foundation or it can be mixed together with foundation, either way the result is beautiful
BEN NYE POWDER (BANANA)
I use this Ben Nye banana powder to set my concealer. I wouldn’t recommend this product if you are going for a dewy glow. This setting powder sets your face to a matte finish and also adds a lovely yellow highlight under the eye.
Elizabeth Arden – Powder
ELF- Translucent Powder
MAC- Studio Fix
The powders are also my favourite products when it comes to having a matte skin finish. The translucent powder is great for control oily skin, it colourless and one application lasts all day. The MAC studio fix powder is also vital for a matte skin finish, it is the type of product would have carried in my purse so that I can blot my face when I get oily but now I just use it once after my foundation application and I’m done.
