Smarter Style: How to Stop Shiny Face

Posted by   + Show Post


It's hardly even worth it to wear makeup in this weather...everything seems to get sweated right off immediately, and even the driest skin gets a little oily when temps climb. If you must put some face on, though. here are some tips to avoid that oil-slick shiny look.

1) Skip cream and liquid formulas...use powder instead.

2) Avoid moisturizer if possible; use an oil-free one with SPF if not.

3) A silicone-based foundation primer will keep makeup in place.

4) Carry extra with you--even with these tricks, you will need to reapply.

5) Oil-blotting sheets are wonder products; you just press them against your skin and they soak up all the oil and sweat without wiping off your makeup like tissue would.

How do you keep makeup on and not shiny in the heat?

I am always washing my face in the summer. Like at least for times more when it is this hot outside. .

Great tips! I generally don't wear makeup at all unless we're going to church.

I use loose powder. Some days I skip makeup.

I can't skip moisturizer, my skin is way too dry. But the primer helps.

 i have the oil-blotting sheets, not so i don't wipe off my makeup though since i don't wear it, but because they work better than tissues.
