Throughout the day, it’s quite common for us to become oily and need to touch up with our compacts. However, before you do, make sure to blot the excess oil first. This will prevent your makeup from looking too cakey. It will also reduce the amount of oil and bacteria being transferred from your skin to your brush, powder puff, or sponge that you use.
There are many ways you can blot your skin. I prefer blotting sheets. They come in a variety of sizes and are made by many different brands. If you don’t have any blot sheets, you can always use a 1 ply tissue (most tissue is 2 ply so just separate it). Gently press down on your skin, don’t rub because you will rub off your makeup.
