By following these simple tricks, I guarantee that you can prevent your foundation from oxidizing and enjoy a flawless, long-lasting finish.

  • Choose the right shade: The most important trick to prevent foundation from oxidizing is to choose the right shade. Test the foundation in natural light and choose a shade that matches your skin tone.
  • Use a primer: Applying a primer before your foundation can help to create a smooth base for your makeup and prevent the foundation from getting oxidized.
  • Set with powder: Setting your foundation with a powder can help to control oil and prevent oxidation.
  • Avoid heavy moisturizers: Heavy moisturizers can make your foundation slip and slide, leading to oxidation. Opt for lightweight moisturizers that are quickly absorbed into the skin.
  • Blot excess oil: Use blotting papers or a tissue to remove excess oil from your skin throughout the day. Excess oil can cause foundation to oxidize.
  • Apply in thin layers: Applying your foundation in thin layers can help to prevent oxidation. Thick layers of foundation are more likely to react with air and cause oxidation.
  • Use a matte foundation: Matte foundations are less likely to oxidize than dewy or luminous foundations. If you have oily skin, a matte foundation may be a good option for you.
  • Use a setting spray: A setting spray can help to lock in your foundation and prevent it from oxidizing throughout the day.
  • Avoid touching your face: Touching your face throughout the day can transfer oils and bacteria to your skin, causing foundation to oxidize.
  • Store foundation properly: Heat and sunlight can cause foundation to break down and oxidize. Store your foundation in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to prevent oxidation.
