jessicafavell asked: Do you suggest using a cream contour if you have oily skin?
Cream contour actually works best for oily skin! :)
A powder contour tends to wear off during the day and fade for people with oily skin. You’ve probably noticed your blush and bronzer is a lot more faded at the end of the day, thats because your oils are breaking down the powder and causing it to wear off.
Using a cream bronzer or darker foundation to contour will last a lot longer than a powder contour because it’s sticking to the foundation and not just sitting on the skin. Setting your cream contour with a powder bronzer will help it last even longer! A lot of people use a cream blush and then set it with a powder blush because it helps the blush stay all day, sort of acting like a glue.
However if you plan on using face powder over it might cover up all the cream contouring you just did. So you’d want to set your face with translucent powder (white powder that goes on colorless) instead of tinted pressed powder. Translucent powder is great for oily skin anyway! If you don’t want to use translucent powder just use a very thin layer of your normal powder :)
So yes i’d recommend cream contouring for oily skin, just make sure to set it with a powdered contour and use translucent powder over.
