Keeping makeup looking fresh and radiant all day long is a challenge in Singapore, no thanks to the constant heat and humidity. And if you have oily skin that’s prone to looking slick and shiny by mid-day, things can only get harder.
Instead of piling on makeup each time you perspire or notice shine on your T-zone, it is important to first make sure that you set makeup correctly. After applying liquid foundation and cream or fluid concealer, it is crucial that you set your makeup with a light dusting of loose powder. This step soaks up excessive moisture of your makeup and prevents makeup from sliding.
Yet, as the day progresses, it is inevitable that your skin produces sebum and sweat, which gradually causes makeup to shift and slide. If you have oily skin, this can be as soon as a couple of hours after you’ve left the house. But fret not, these pressed powders can help absorb excess shine and restore makeup to its former perfection.
