With oily skin, make sure your skin is prepped before applying foundation. Try to use both a cleanser and a toner. Toners are especially important as they help to remove any oils that are on the skin’s surface.
Next, apply moisturiser to the skin. One of my favourite products is Vichy Normaderm’s Hydrating Care Moisturiser, as this really mattifies the skin. I like to apply the moisturiser with a foundation brush, as if there is any infection or bacteria on the skin you’re not spreading it around the face.
Then apply your foundation. Don’t be afraid to mix two foundation shades together on the back of your hand if you are trying to achieve your perfect colour match. Dermablend’s Corrective Fluid Foundations work really well together and blend perfectly onto the skin.
Make sure you apply the foundation to the centre of the face, so that by the time you get to the hairline and jawline, there should be hardly any foundation on your brush, so you’re not going to create a build up there.
With the Dermablend Corrective Fluid Foundation, you can ensure you get the coverage you need if you have blemishes as you can really build the coverage layers. However it still feels light and moisturising on the skin. It also contains SPF so it will protect your skin against the sun.
After the foundation, go over certain problem areas with a concealer. I tend to use a concealer brush to do this and just pat it over the areas where you want to have more coverage such as on red blemishes or shiny areas.
Finally, now that you have created a flawless foundation, add Dermablend’s Setting Powder to the skin. It will set the foundation nicely and provides the perfect radiant finish.
