Makeup Tips for Decreasing Facial Oil Shine

May 22, 2008
Do you have an oily complexion? Well, if you do then it can be difficult at times to control the shine of your face caused by excess oil. If you are out in the sun a lot, this may make things even more difficult. However, if this is your situation, do not worry because there are a couple of makeup and cosmetic solutions that you can incorporate into your daily skincare regime to assist you with shine control.

Mineral Makeup

The first thing you may want to consider doing is making use of light and natural makeup. One type that is becoming more and more popular by the minute is mineral makeup. Because mineral makeup is derivative of natural ingredients, it is said to be healthy for your skin. Not only does this type of makeup refrain from clogging your pores, it can very possibly help improve your overall complexion.

For shine control purposes, mineral makeup is made up of very finely crushed powder. This fine powder is very dry and does a great job of absorbing facial oil, thus decreasing shine and the look of an oily complexion very significantly.

However, keep in mind that just because the makeup absorbs excess oil does not mean that it is not there. No, the oil is still there but it is just disguised and hidden very well. So, how do you rid your face of excess oils without removing the makeup and cosmetics you applied in the process?

Oil Blotting Cosmetic Tissues

The solution to that problem is oil blotting cosmetic tissues. These are non pore clogging tissues that, when patted on your face, absorbs oils without removing your makeup. Just about every well-known cosmetic brand company produces a type of these tissues. They are a bit pricey, though, ranging from around $3-12 for around 50-150 2 inch by 3 inch small squares of oil-blotting tissue.

But, if you are anything like me, you will not be so keen to spend the extra money for tissue paper. Not to worry, because there is another solution to the high cost of these tissues.

My Best Kept Makeup Tip Secret

My best kept secret is...Toilet cover sanitizers! I bet you did not expect that one, huh? Well, they are made of the same fundamental things that pricey oil blotting tissues are made of minus the fancy name and company logo...Tissue paper! Best of all, you can get these for free in most public restrooms.

So while you are touching up your mineral makeup in a public restroom, go and grab a few toilet cover sanitizers. You can use some then, and put the rest in your purse for later!
