4 Must-Have Makeup Products for Oily Skin

Living in the sunny state of Florida, humidity and oily skin do not mix well. Through a lot of trial and error, I’ve been able to find amazing products that work well with my oily skin. Here are four makeup products to survive the Florida heat for my fellow oily skin people!

MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder 

This easy-to-use finishing powder immediately soaks up any excess oils after doing a full face. I’ve been using this powder since middle school and it still hasn’t let me down! Also, fun fact: if you return six empty MAC containers to your local MAC store, you get a free lipstick!

L’Oréal Infallible 24HR Fresh Wear Foundation

Once I started college, I needed to find a new foundation that wouldn’t melt off my face as I run between classes. With the foundation I had prior, I would arrive to class sweating and I could feel my foundation already coming off. After a lot of research, I finally decided to try this product. It is my new favorite foundation! It is definitely a long-wear foundation that provides amazing medium and full coverage. With this foundation, I don’t need to worry about any touch-ups!

e.l.f Shadow Lock Eyelid Primer

With oily lids, my eyeshadow tends to fall out and doesn’t seem to stick to my eyelids. I would come home to find my eyeshadow smeared even though I hadn’t touched it. Thankfully, e.l.f has come through with their amazing eyelid primer! It is a lightweight formula that doesn’t crease. At only $3, what is not to love? I would 100% recommend it!

e.l.f 16HR Camo Concealer

Sometimes, I want a bit more coverage for any blemishes or imperfections. This concealer is definitely the way to go! At an affordable price of $6, it provides full coverage, 16-hour wear to conceal, correct, contour, and highlight for beautiful skin. It is extremely lightweight, so it doesn’t make my skin feel heavy. It avoids any creasing and leaves a smooth finish. I love using this for my skin!

Having oily skin shouldn’t stop you from having that flawless glow! With these products, you can enjoy the summer heat without your makeup melting off.
