My Skin Routine Before Makeup (Oily Skin)

Hello everybody and welcome back

I got so many questions on what makeup products I use; however, before I do that, I want to share the products I am using before I apply my makeup. By the experiences that I have, my makeup looks good when I take care of my skin before I apply my makeup. When I don’t, my makeup looks cakey and heavy on my skin.

As I mentioned in the title, this skin routine someone with oily skin like me and/or combination skin type (my skin type changes with the seasons). These products that I will introduce to you are the products that I have been using for few years AND I keep purchasing them.


I use this Korean gel cleanser in the morning because it takes off all the oil and dirt from the skin. It does leave the skin little bit dry, but after you apply moisturizer it will be fine.


This moisturizer is the best. The ingredients they used in this moisturizer is all clean. This product is an oil-controlling moisturizer. According to Sephora’s website, this product is good normal, oily, combination, dry, and sensitive skins.  


Sadly this product is discontinued (Sorry the bottle is all messed up. I will try to find another primer for you.


This eye primer is really good. It helps with the eyeshadow to stay put, and helps with oily eyelid (Sorry again, the bottle is all messed up..all the gold font faded away).


This eye cream makes your under eye smooth and ready to apply your foundation/concealer. Make sure to only apply it to your under eyes.

That is it guys, I hope you find this blog post useful. Until next time, bye.
