Keeping makeup in place on combination skin

Applying make-up is one of the best ways to give yourself a little pick me up and make yourself feel confident and glamorous, and their are endless great products on the market today.

However, for those with combination skin, applying make-up, and then keeping it where it should be can be an absolute nightmare!

The thing about combination skin is that different areas of the face often have different needs. Many people with combination skin find that some areas of the face are very dry, whereas other spots are excessively oily. This can make choosing the right products something of a tricky task- especially when it comes to foundation.

If your skin is prone to excessive oiliness, opt for an oil free foundation- this will help to minimise shine and help to prevent your face from feeling like an oil slick by lunchtime.

Those with combination skin often feel that skipping on moisturiser could help to improve the appearance of oily areas, although it can in fact make the problem even worse. Using a light moisturiser such as Dermalogica Active Moist will help to hydrate more parched areas, without contributing to excess oil production.

Those with combination skin should try to avoid constantly reapplying powder- as it could start to look uneven and patchy on both dry and oily areas.

By paying a little extra attention to your combination skin, your make-up will have much more staying power and will serve you well throughout the day.
