The Ultimate Foundation Routine For Oily Skin | How To Keep Your Face Shine Free! | Nikkia Joy

Healthy Skin Tip: Believe it or not, most bar soaps you use in the bath or shower wreak havoc on your skin. They're far too harsh to be using if you have sensitive skin, so always make sure that you're using soap specifically formulated for sensitive skin. With all the options out there today, it doesn't cost much to get a special brand.

In this video I show you my ultimate tried and tested foundation routine for oily skin! I go through the best primer, foundation, concealer & setting powder for oily skin as well as some great oily skin hacks for keeping your face matte throughout the day!

  1. i used the infallible for months a few years ago and it just sunk into my pores and made me so dry and flakey.. i’ve even tried a dozen more foundations and none help me from looking oily and gross. help

  2. this is so helpful, love it. what colour do you wear in the L’Oreal infalable pro matte foundation. ?

  3. So informative!! Thank you! by the way, idk if it’s just me but when i add concealer on top of the estee lauder double wear it takes the foundation off!!! Has this happened to you before or anyone elseee??? It’s so annoying!

  4. Would be able to possibly do one for sensitive skin? My skin breaks out super easily and it’s also very oily, so it’s kind of hard to find stuff that I can afford, and won’t cause my oily skin to show, or break out

  5. Honestly watched almost all of your oily skin videos. You understand my struggle!!! I have oily skin but I’m terribly pale. For example the L’Oréal infallible all of the colors are too dark for my tone. And it’s not like I can keep it around till summer for when I’m darker because I don’t tan. 😆 I’m in the market for more of a sheer to medium coverage foundation because I like to let my natural freckles show through. If any one has recommendations that would be great! As of now I just use shape tape and the cover fx are what I use when my skin isn’t broke out.

  6. I can testify for the moisturiser part bc I used to always use moisturiser but I ran out about a month ago and haven’t gotten any more yet, I’m just now realising how oily my skin is

  7. Hej
    I got sooo oily above my eyes, I really can’t wear any eye shadow because it gets too oily and missed up, what can I do for that ?

  8. Love that you are doing tutorial for oily skin. But do you realise that MAC is tested on animals?

  9. I know this video was made like a year ago but I have a question is the (MAC prep+prime fix ) good for oily skin should I buy it or no

  10. Love your channel! Just bought the Estée Lauder Double wear and it’s amazing, I work in a really hot bakery and it’s still perfect after a 10 hour shift!🙌🏼 Should you apply the translucent setting powder before or after contouring? 👯
