Healthy Skin Tip: If you have oily skin or are prone to acne, avoid leaning your face against surfaces that might collect dirt and oil, such as a cell phone. Wash such items regularly if you cannot avoid contact, such as with pillowcases. The oil and bacteria built up on these items can sabotage even the best skin care efforts.


In this video I share my top ten ultimate oily skin hacks. I have used these tips & tricks for years to help keep my skin matte and keep my makeup in place all day long! We cover primers, setting spray, foundation hacks and clever tricks to make sure your makeup lasts all day long! I also include lots of affordable drugstore alternatives for my babes on a budget!

  1. Can you do a how you apply the cocoanut oil for your skin video, there isn’t a lot of videos on YouTube that go into detail and show how exactly they do it.

  2. My best hack? I use Dermablend Leg & Body Cover as my foundation. Amazing, lasts all day, super matte and full coverage! Added bonus, it has ZERO comedogenic ingredients so it will not break you out

  3. Everyoneeee with oily skin NEEDS to know about rice paper!! It’s super cheap at ulta and Sally’s, it is literally the only blotting sheets out there that not only take off excess oil but it has rice powder so it leaves you matte!! Incredible!!

  4. FALSE I have acne and I used coconut oil specifically for the body, and yes it was actual coconut oil non refined with no add on’s. put it on over night and I had a breakout in the morning. Coconut oil literally blocks pores

  5. I’m so glad I found your channel!! I have really oily skin .. all your tips are really helpful!!

  6. You are a lifesaver🙌 Literally every youtuber I have seen has dry skin and it is so annoying because I could never find oily skinned YouTubers! Subscribed, and I’ve been binge watching your videos❤

  7. I took your advice and used my setting spray before and after makeup and it really helped! You’re a life saver for us oily gals

  8. well, looks like i’ll have to get some new cleansers because my face feels like that after i wash it…😳

  9. I constantly wear my make-up with this excellent brush from here
    ✳✳> https://getpocket.com/s/MHjUQ
    It assist me to make my make up flawless, love it! I didn`t understand much about makeup previously, however i love to view tutorials and aim to learn. So i decided to purchase this brush set to assist me, and it did work well. I enjoy my brush, you guys need to try it too. It provide totally free shipping too!

  10. first of all I want to say I am so glad I found your channel! I absolutely adored this video because whenever I use blotting papers in public I get embarrassed so I try to hide it when I use them so that was really cute your little trick! I am learning so much from you and I’m probably going to binge watch all your videos when I get home! Thank you so much! love from Wisconsin!

  11. i am glad till right now that i found you my goddess Nikkia Joy, lol i love u tho thanks for all the tips my fav youtuber eveeer💕

  12. Q. for Nikkia/video request:
    i have used hydrogen peroxide on cotton pads for years. i would have to use this at least 3 times daily bc i have horribly oily skin and i am a platinum blond so the fact that it continuously bleaches my eyebrows until i had to use a special powder to get them to show up with occasional make-up was just something i had to live with. i had no idea why i had the oily skin i was born w/ but now i know its bc i did not properly moisturize! which leads me to my question:

    Nikkia Joy, what is the best moisturizer for straight up oily/acne prone skin that isnt just marketing ploy claiming magic!? i am a mommy on a budget so i prefer something at or under $8. i only buy fresh products and i try to only use a calming lavender, oatmeal, or cucumber & green tea bc my skin is hella sensitive and i get hives with a lot of cheap or to strong products. ive resulted to using huggies wipes, please help me. -_- :.( <3 .n_n.

  13. Please can you do a review on the too faced born this way foundation x
    Btw love your videos you really help me get over my oily skin I always look forward to seeing you videos as they are really helpful 💖😘

  14. you’re amazing, you’ve helped we so much with my oily skin, my skin always looks good thanks to you
    love love love 💖🌸

  15. Nikkia did you try out the Urban Decay setting sprays? Don’t know if I should grab one of these or the Gerard cosmetics ones 😬🤷🏽‍♀️

  16. I use the Blotarazzi of Beauty Blender brand instead of disposable blotting paper… amazing design.. reusable…cool case with mirror…never leaves my purse… highly recommend it … kisses 🙂

  17. I’ve been watching your videos and OMG are they helpful!! I’m honestly righting down notes lol! You’re freaking gorgeous and I’m so happy i came across your channel.
