Even if you have oily skin you should need to wear skincare, but you can wear every product in fewer amounts. And you can choose skincare based on your skin type.
And for you who have dry skin, because of the different places and weather, I’m sure your skin will be drier than before. So, you should make sure you wear a thick skincare product that can moisten the skin. If you put makeup on dry skin, your skincare will not stick on your skin so your makeup will crack in a few hours.

And for those people with dry skin, you can choose a primer that can hydrate and moist your skin, usually, it has a gel or cream texture. You can put on the primer all over your place and be more focused on the area that easy to get oil or crack.
4. Light-Weight Complexion to Make You Feel Comfy

6. Cream or Powder Bronzer to Bring Back the Face Dimension
Usually, we recommend wearing contour but at this time you can prefer a bronzer that can give the natural finish look. The bronzer has softer color than contour. If you are confused about where you put on the bronzer, it’s the same as you put on the contour, girls.
Bronzer also has two types there are cream and powder. If you want a long-lasting bronzer, you can choose cream.

This makeup is considered a lightweight and natural finish. Therefore, you should choose a loose powder to set your makeup. The function of powder on this makeup is just to set your base makeup to make sure it will not easily get melted or cracked.

You just have to put a lot of powder with a sponge on the area that easy to get oil or crack. Furthermore, you can wait a few minutes until it’s set, then you can continue to blend with a powder brush.

Furthermore, you can finish your brows with brows mascara to set your hair brows and make it look feathered.
10. Brown Color Eyeshadow

First, use the light brown color all over your eyes. Furthermore, you can continue to apply dark brown eyeshadow on your crease and outer corner to make your eyes look deep. And last, use a shimmer color on the inner corner to make your eyes look awake and fresh.
11. Natural Shape Eyeliner
Same as the eyeshadow, you can also skip this part if you already have big eyes. But for you who can live without eyeliner because you have small eyes, don’t worry because you still can use it. Choose the natural shape eyeliner and use brown color eyeliner that will make it more natural. Furthermore, you can start to draw the eyeliner from the inner corner to your outer corner. And add a small wing at the end of your eyes to give the illusion like your having long eyes.

I know girls can live without lipstick because this is a life-saver product when their faces look pale. So, for this makeup, you can choose a nude color for the lipstick to make it look natural.

But if you feel it makes your face look pale, you can continue applying darker color lipstick like mauve or red on the inner lips. Then you should blend it until there’s no harsh line to get soft ombre lips.
