You know what sucks? A greaseball look. When you wake up on a bright day with the sun greeting you. You’re to attend some event with your girls so you take one and a half hour to get your makeup and hair in place. When done you are sure that you look perf. But then your foundation betrays you and you start sweating makeup. Ew. That is every oily skinned girl’s most dreaded scenario.
But fear not, there is a foundation out there for you too! In fact, you have perhaps invested in one that is not formulated for your skin type and now are paying for the consequences. Foundations are like men, you must get the right one otherwise you have to suffer. “Some of the most common mistakes that people with oily skin make is wearing the wrong foundation,” says Daniel Chinchilla, celebrity makeup artist.
