Foundation/Primer for Oily Skin
(0) Hearts


I have combination-oily skin. I get shiny and oil in my T-Zone and chin while my cheeks usually stay pretty dry. Right now I am using Clinique's Acne Solutions foundation. I find it doesn't blend as well as I would like and am still oily throughout the day (I do use blotting sheets for that excess oil).


I just bought Nars Sheer Matte foundation and their oil-free primer but am not noticing a huge difference in the appearnace/shininess/oil on my face. By noon it still looks fairly shinny and I have to blot it. I also use MUFU HD Microfine powder and find when I am put my makeup on the morning this does give me the velvetie feel I want...but again by noon its all lost.


Does anyone in the beauty world have any recommendations? I open to trying almost anything (night lotion, foundation, primer, etc.) to help control the oil and shine. I would like to not have to worry about blotting my face throughout the day Smiley Happy
