Hi! Here are a few tips to get that oily look:
1. Use a lotion with a shimmer base to it. Either pick up a makeup product with a shimmer to it and mix it with your lotion, or pick up a lotion that has shimmer in it already. Many different types of makeup lines carry products with a shimmer base, such as shimmer foundation, shimmer gold eyeshadow (which you can crush and add to your lotion), highlighting sticks.... Just mix with any basic type of lotion. You can also get that new lotion by Jergens that has a shimmer base to it.
2. Use baby oil. This can be messy..especially if you want to shoot the model on a couch, or chair... I usually only use this when I shoot the model standing up..so that I don't get oil stains on anything else. Very very hard to get out..hahah trust me.. But even though it is messy, it gives a great oily look to the model. Try to get the baby oil that is in the gel form. It is wayyy easier to apply.
3. Mixture of baby oil and water. I know this sounds strange...oil and water? Just get a clean spray bottle, add in a tablespoon of baby oil, pour in 1/2 - 1 cup of water, shake before spraying, and have the model rub it into her skin. It provides a great shine without getting too oily. You'd want to use the traditional baby oil instead of the gel type.
Ok! I hope this has helped. Actually I have a ton of other tricks that I use so if you have any other questions, let me know. I am a makeup artist as well as photographer so I try to figure out new and fun ways to achieve different looks. Let me know if it works well in your pictures!
