12 Makeup Tips You Need To Know If You Have Combination Skin
Crazy Combination Skin Issues? Here’s What Works
Makeup is not one size fits all. We all have beautiful different skin tones, types, and issues we would like to combat. So why would you go to the drug store and pick up the first foundation or cleanser you see in a pretty bottle? Stop it!
You have combination skin. And, one of the most challenging skin types to treat and find products for is combination skin.
First, what is combination skin and do you have it? Combination skin is when you experience both dry and oily skin simultaneously. For example, it is common for people to have oily skin on their forehead, nose, and chin. But for people with combination skin, they will also experience dryness on their cheeks or just part of their forehead.
The combination of these two types of challenging skin makes it more difficult to properly use makeup. But, we have got you covered! We have uncovered exactly what you need to do in order to master the combination skin makeup game.
Here are the 12 best ways to use makeup to treat your combination skin:
Combination Skin Makeup Tip #1: Use Makeup Brands That Cater to Combination Skin
This one may be obvious to you. But, to some it is a total surprise. There are plenty of makeup brands that have “combination skin” lines that cater to those experiencing both oily and dry skin. Their formulas are designed both to matte your oily skin and to hydrate your drier areas.
Combination Skin Makeup Tip #2: Use Gentle Cleansers
Find a gentle cleanser to lay a great base for your skin. A proper gentle cleanser can hydrate your dry areas and clean out any oil build up and dirt that may have collected in those oily parts of your skin.
Combination Skin Makeup Tip #3: Use Lightweight Lotions
One way to help treat your dry skin is to apply a lotion, but that can often make the oily parts of your skin look caked over and visible. Applying a lightweight lotion can be gentle enough to fight dryness but light enough to simply apply a thin layer over the oily skin, with minimum appearance.
Combination Skin Makeup Tip #4: Use Oil-Free Moisturizers
Many people moisturize their skin with essential oils or moisturizers containing different oils. This does not work for combination skin. Look for a moisturizer that is oil-free and can hydrate your skin using non-oil ingredients.
Combination Skin Makeup Tip #5: Invest in a Face Primer
Face primer can be a wonderful thing for those of us with combination skin. You have applied your cleanser, moisturizer, or whatever other products you love. Now seal and set your face for makeup application. This will help give your face an even consistent base so you can always get the same results when applying your makeup.
Combination Skin Makeup Tip #6: Powder The Oily Areas For a Matte Finish
Focus on applying foundation powder with a matte finish to just the oily parts of the skin. Powder, to begin with, is excellent for oily skin since it can help collect that oil and reduce a shiny appearance. A matte finish is developed with a stronger formula for long-lasting results. Avoid using this on dry areas, since it can cause further dryness and reduce hydration.
Combination Skin Makeup Tip #7: Use Different Makeup For Your Oily And Dry Areas
You probably have done a lot of work to find the perfect foundation. But is it only perfect for your oily skin? Or your dry skin? If so, just use it for that area and begin your search for a second foundation. If you need to, use different types of makeup for your skin in different areas. Aim for similar shades and make sure both types blend well at the meeting points.

Combination Skin Makeup Tip #8: Avoid Powdering Dry Areas
Avoid using powder on any dry area. Powder of any form has been known to suck up hydration and when used in excess amounts can create further dryness.
Combination Skin Makeup Tip #9: The Miracle of Blotting Tissues
A great little tool to help you control areas of your skin with excess oil is blotting tissues. They can easily be bought in small packets. You simply pull out a thin tissue-like piece and blot the oily parts of your face. The best thing about this product is it does not affect your makeup or dry parts of the skin!
Combination Skin Makeup Tip #10: Hydrating Liquid Foundation
Consider investing in a hydrating liquid foundation. This can be particularly beneficial for combination skin types. It can hydrate the dry areas, while potentially curing the oily areas. The parts of your skin that are producing excess oil are doing so because your skin is thirsty. The oil is produced to compensate for that. If your skin feels properly hydrated, there will be a reduction in the oil produced.
Combination Skin Makeup Tip #11: Use Toner
Toner is designed to provide nutrition to your skin and bring balance. It does not matter whether your skin is oily or dry. Toner knows where your skin should be and aims for that. A toner can drastically improve your combination skin.
Combination Skin Makeup Tip #12: Use Matte Setting Spray
Seal in all your makeup, lotion, primer, and toner with a setting spray with a matte finish. It will freeze your makeup and products so you can maintain the same beautiful look throughout your day.
Learning how to deal with combination skin can be tricky. You are required to combat two major issues people face simultaneously. However, there are plenty of products and makeup options out there to have you looking your best every day.
