Moisturize it by using a non-oily face moisturizer or a tinted moisturizer if you don’t need to apply foundation. If you apply foundation make sure to use a light one that fits your skin tone.

3. Powder on the oilier parts of your face
If you have an oily skin, make sure to use a powder that mattifies your T zone.
4. Use a subtle blush
