Lasting Makeup Tips Super Oily Skin  Women who have a super oily skin will know the ordeal of dealing with it. Bangs sticking to forehead, face looking like a disco ball within minutes of washing it, makeup sliding at a lightning speed and smudged eyeliner which gives panda looking eyes. Applying makeup is an art and making makeup last on a shiny skin is work no less than that of an artist. If you are someone who struggles with keeping makeup in place on your super shiny skin, here are some effective strategies which will help you lock in your makeup for hours:1.Start with a moisturized skin: Yes! You read it right! Oily skinned people are under a big misconception that their skin doesn’t needs moisturizers as they will make their skin oilier. However you should know that it’s the incorrect moisturizers that contribute to the shiny look on their faces. For makeup to look like it’s not made us, don’t skip on hydrating and prepping your skin properly. Opt for moisturizers that are water based as they are lighter in texture and get absorbed into skin within seconds. Clean & clear skin balancing moisturizer and Lotus herbals alphamoist skin renewal moisturizer are two popular names in budget friendly moisturizers for oily skin. 2.Prep your skin: After you have moisturized your skin adequately, don’t get started with your base products. To keep your makeup in place for long hours, apply a quality primer first that is meant for oily skin types and then start with your base. A primer is like a magic potion which forms a slippery coat on your skin and locks your makeupto a good extent. Primers meant for oily skin mattify the skin and many also help in reducing the pore size3.Choose the right foundation formula: If your foundations glides off from your skin as soon as you step in the heat outside, you should know that you are using the wrong formula. Foundations for oily skin should have mattifying properties and be water based. Water based foundations do not block pores of oily skinned people, get blended in properly and stay for long. Avoid cream and oil based formulas. Skip the ones with a dewy finish as your oily skin is already a self-lit highlighter. Liquid foundations work best here. For everyday purpose, go with BB or CC creams.4.Powder two times: For the maximum effect, don’t powder your base only at the end of applying your foundation. Apply loose powder on your skin after you have applied primer. This increases the staying power of makeup as you are giving a good amount of adherence for your makeup to stick to. Finish off with another coat of it at the end. To avoid your makeup from looking patchy, just give enough time for products to dry up completely before you go over with another layer. There are a lot of loose powders available online which you can shop for.5.Finish off with a setting spray: A setting spray is one thing which will make or break your look at the end of the day. If you are aiming for a long-lasting makeup for any event, you must use a setting spray. A quick spritz will give your makeup some serious staying power and let you dance to your heart’s content at a party without worrying you about any meltdown. NYX Matte finish makeup setting spray, Urban Decay all-nighter setting spray and Urban decay de-slick oil control setting spray are famous names.**Guest Post by Neha Chaudhary
