Concealers are one makeup staple every beauty enthusiast can’t do without. From making the brows pop, to getting that highlighted face, these secret weapon are the answer to nailing any look. But with millions of options available for different skin types, and each promising to fulfill a different purpose, how can you tell which concealer is prefect for your skin type, especially oily skin? When it comes to picking a good concealer for oily skin, it’s definitely a challenge as oily skin can be tough to deal with. You apply your favorite blemish-hiding formula, followed by a dust powder, and you’re on your way. Everything looks perfect but a few hours later, you decide to have a glimpse of your reflection in a mirror only to see your face is all shiny. And no, not the shiny glow from highlighters, but an oily skin going on a shine marathon kinda thing. To stay far away from this type of scenario, it’s really important to use a concealer perfect for your oily skin.
For example, matte and waterproof concealers work best for your skin as they lock in shine for a flawless finish. Also, it’s important to stick to concealers that are oil free or have oil absorbing ingredients because they do the job well. Whether you want to cover blemishes, under-eye circles or redness, these concealers work magic while still feeling perfect on the skin. Finally, when it comes to oily skin, you should avoid products that contain comedogenic ingredients as they clog pores leading to skin breakout. If you’re still confused or unable to pick the best concealer for your oily skin, we’ve got you covered.
