Foundation and powder for oily skin?
Answered[ Edited ]
Hi suz79!! I know exactly how you feel. I actually came on here about 2 or 3 months ago asking for help. I'm half Asian and have incredibly oily skin. I tried all kinds of different primers and my makeup melt downs kept occurring! I was recommended to change my skin care. I'm not sure what you use but I'm still in the processes of testing out different products but my skin has already improved SO much... even to the point of getting compliments which I never would've thought possible since I too have large pores on my cheeks. I tried out the Boscia Clear Complexion line, but have switched the toner to the Murad acne toner. What's also helped me out wonders is the Murad Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 (which is a bit thick but don't let that concern you.). I replaced my day time moisturizer with that and it's great!!!!! I then dab on the Benefit Porefessional on my pores (nose/cheeks) instead of wiping it on. It gives me a smoother finish. I rotate my foundations between Laura Mercier Silk Creme and Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation, then my best weapon is the Tarte Smooth Operator Finishing Powder. It's amazing and gives such a flawless finish. My makeup is now lasting me through my entire work day and it doesn't look caked on. I also very much recommend NEVER go to bed without washing your face. Hope this helps, good luck!!!
