Sometimes we ladies miss a very important step before re-touching our make-up. So before you apply that pressed powder using the puff or brush, read on.
Our skin naturally produces oils that contribute to shine and the wearing off of some amount of makeup. Two to three hours with makeup on, somehow the oil begins to build up and alter what used to be a made-up look. When we immediately re-touch with additional powder, the powder mixes with the oil and produces a thick and sometimes cakey layer. Often this is also the reason why the oil-powder mixture builds up on our powder puffs or on top of the pressed powder on the pan.
The missing step? Blotting the oil first before re-touching! Not with the handkerchief or tissue, but with oil-blotting films.
I use the Clean & Clear Oil Control Film which comes in a very handy pack.
It has that fresh citrus scent which is a little too strong for me but promises a refreshing feel. In an instant the oil is gone, and my skin immediately looks matte and fresh. It’s also silky to the touch. What’s more: I only need to apply so little powder, if at all. There are days when I didn’t need to re-touch because the foundation is still there, unlike when I wipe the oil with tissue or hankie.
There I actually bought another pack so it’s ready when my current one runs out.
Look at that oil that should have been on my face until sun-down!
Happy oil-free face!
