How to apply foundation for oily skin and makeup hacks for oily skin:

1. Even though you might be inclined to not moisturize because you feel like it will make the skin more oily, it can actually help with the longevity of your foundation, how it looks and if you moisturize regularly, this can actually help with your skin's overall oiliness. The more moisture you give the skin, the less it feels the need to produce more oil.

2. Apply very thin layers of foundation instead of just one thick layer. A thick layers sits on the skin,  can look too cakey and oily, and will transfer easily. Thin layers, each blended really well into the skin, will look more natural, feel better and last longer.

3. Setting spray is usually used in the end once your whole makeup look is done. However, try applying it between layers of foundation and after powder. It helps the makeup set better, and setting spray in general helps the makeup last longer, look better and more natural, because it almost gets rid of any extra cakey-ness. 

4. Try lightly baking or setting your base with powder to absorb excess oil and help it stay matte and last longe. Don't forget to finish it off with setting spray or remove excess powdery look and make your base look more natural. 

5. Throughout the day have blotting papers and a compact powder on hand to lightly top up any oiliness. Also, it is better to blot before applying the powder over oily spots or sweat.
