Beauty Information: Tips for Applying Makeup Quicker

Switching to mineral makeup can help minimize breakouts and issues with eczema. This makeup is also super quick to apply - allowing you to throw out existing foundations and powders and streamline your routine. Read on to learn more about applying pure mineral makeup.

First, apply a moisturizer with SPF 15 all over your skin. If you have oily skin, choose a product that is oil-free and won't clog pores. Let the moisturizer soak into your skin for a few minutes before applying makeup.

Then, use a mineral makeup powder on your face. Choose a large brush and apply to your entire face in a circular motion. If you want added color, select a mineral blush or bronzer to apply to the face.

Finish off the look by applying a subtle eye shadow and gently lining the top eye lid only. Apply 1-2 coats of mascara and a natural lip gloss.

i have oily skin, after applying the superstay foundation, it looks matte and it looks great, about an hour later im super oily, tips to fix this?

I have the same type of skin. I know exactly what you mean.

If you want to continue using that foundation, try using a toner on your skin first after washing your face on a regular basis - or just before applying the foundation. Toners are basically alcohol water & minerals. They clarify your skin. Using a toner will cut down on the amount of oil that might become trapped under the foundation, but it will not solve the problem completely.

If you want to solve the problem completely, change foundations from your Maybelline to the stuff that I use which is Revlon Colorstay makeup with softflex spf 6 - combination oily skin formula. I have tried everything over the last 10 years and this is the only thing that really works. You can get it at CVS, Walmart, RiteAide and most dime stores. It costs between $ 12.00 to $ 16.00 dollars and you only need a tiny amount of product to do your whole face.

You will see the difference when you put it on your finger. It is not oily, or greasy and it dries quickly. It can cover up anything and once it dries, it is set in place for the day. It washes off with water but makeup remover is better (opion not fact).

What is the best mattifying lotion available?In your opinion, what would you say is the best mattifying lotion available? One the has the best mattifying properties, but is easy on the skin (one that won't cause breakouts)? Thank you for your opinion!

I haven't tried any mattifying lotions that worked well for me, but I found another product that does the trick that I'm hooked on... Benefit's Dr. Feel Good (available at department stores or Sephora).

It's meant as a face primer, but I didn't really notice much of a difference when used this way. Instead, I apply it around noon or so when my face gets a little bit of shine on my forehead. It's a balm in a little tin.. I just apply a little bit and it soaks up any shine and keeps a matte finish for the rest of the day! It also has helped prevent breakouts since it absorbs the oil. The tin lasts a long time as well. Other than that, I like Clean & Clear's oil absorbing sheets. I used to use these when my skin was very oily as a teen.
