My skin is super oily. I’ve always had a hard time managing it, but I recently found a simple routine that feels light on my skin, is super simple, and doesn’t break the bank.
Cerave Cleanser – Normal to Oily Skin
The first product I use every morning is t It’s super gentle on the skin and doesn’t irritate any acne or cause excessive redness. This product is made without fragrances and is the #1 dermatologist-recommended skincare brand.
Cerave Moisturizer – AM with SPF 30
This moisturizer is great because it’s a 2-in-1. I have fair skin so having sunscreen built into my moisturizer is amazing. On days when I know I’m going to be out in the sun for longer periods of time, I’ll wear EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 or Cetaphil SPF 35 in addition to the moisturizer for extra protection.
I love this primer. It’s super lightweight and helps my makeup stay all day- which is a godsend after years and years of my makeup just sliding off from skin being so oily. If I’m not planning on wearing makeup that day, sometimes I’ll put this on my skin and then use the NYX Finishing Powder just to lock things into place.
My makeup is very minimal on a day-to-day basis. I usually just wear it to cover up redness or acne, so when I do wear makeup, I use:
There was a lot of hype around this concealer, but it has amazing coverage. It’s lasted me for months. Shoutout to the gal at Sephora for the recommendation. I put this around my nose, the corner of my eye, and any trouble spots I want to cover up.
For the longest time, my ride-or-die mascara was Loreal Original Mascara, but I tried out this Maybelline mascara, and I absolutely love it. It makes my eyelashes look way longer than they actually are, and they have a waterproof version as well.
Anastasia Eyebrow Pencil or Milani Brow Pencil
I will admit I am not a magician when it comes to eyebrows. However, both of these are incredibly user-friendly and help me fill in my eyebrows just enough so they look a little less sparse.
This product has really good pigment but doesn’t feel heavy on my skin, which I love. I usually put the blush on my cheekbones and blend it up toward my temple with a damp beauty blender.
As I said, I have a very simple routine, and it has worked really well for my oily skin. Thanks to the world of social media (particularly TikTok), I have been able to figure out the best routine for me that’s simple, easy, and efficient.
