While dermatologists endorse plant-based facial oils as they offer major hydration, makeup artists too recommend them as they leave the skin glowing but not greasy.


From helping remove makeup to being a natural looking highlighter, facial oils have some secret uses, reports vogue.in.

Here are four benefits of facial oils:

1. Any facial oil will gently remove waterproof mascara, long wearing eye shadow and lipstick in just a few trouble free swipes.

2. Rich fatty acid oils, like argan and jojoba, that are easily absorbed by the skin are also soaked up by hair. Hair stylist Guido Palau suggests smoothing a drop over dry ends or unruly bangs to tame frizz and tackle flyaways.

3. Add oil to a cream or liquid foundation for hydration and to make it more sheer for lighter coverage.

4. After your makeup, tap a bit of oil on to cheekbones, the bridge of the nose and shoulders for a natural looking highlighter, says makeup artist Quinn Murphy.
