Oriental with Oily Skin
I have a pale, oily skin, and want to know how to best use makeup, without looking too western.
If you have oily skin, you should use a suitable foundation and seal it with powder, in order to prevent breakouts during the course of the day. Be sure to use a foundation which matches your skin tone. Loose powder is best, but a compact is also useful as you can keep it in your handbag - choose one which is a tone paler than your skin. You don't need that much makeup, in fact, too much will drown your face. Choose soft eye colours such as apricot and pale green, to set off your brown eyes. Stronger colours may be used for evening, and the lipstick is totally your choice. Use a black/brown pencil for your eyes and an ultra-black mascara.
