Pssy! I too have oily skin so I completely understand your fears. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you use oil-free and matt finish products as well as waterproof ones so your makeup doesn’t run!

Step 1: Moisturise your face with an oil-free moisturiser.

Tip: Try to keep some oil blotting sheets on you at all times, because they instantly absorb the up excess oil and remove shine from your face, without smudging your makeup or leaving behind any powder. (Also mineral makeup tends to be the best for oily skin!)
