Skipping primer and moisturizers.
Most women are in a rush to get their makeup done. But we need to pause for a second and take time to slick on some primer before dabbing on the oil-based foundation. Primer not only provides a smooth surface to lay the foundation on, but it also acts as a barrier between your skin and the makeup. You’ll find you need to apply less of your makeup because oil won’t seep through the foundation so quickly; therefore, saving your skin from a breakout and saving a couple of dollars.
Break the cycle: Before foundation and concealer, dab on a silicone based primer to your skin and let it sink in. There are great high-end as well as drugstore primers.
