It sounds like you want to prevent shine later in the day, but that your skin is dry to begin with. Normally to banish shine I would recommend Urban Decay "De-Slick in a Tube" but it's very strong and can make dry skin much worse so that might be too extreme for you. I would instead recommend Smashbox "Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light" (Sephora Product Page) I frequently wear this product on days when I don't wear foundation. It makes skin look soft and smooth and its mattifying effects help control shine. Also,  Urban Decay "De-Slick Mattifying Powder" (Sephora Product Page) is a great product to have. It comes in a handy portable compact and it's colorless. So whether you're wearing foundation or not, it's a great way to get rid of any shine throughout the day. I hope all of this helps you! :smileyhappy:
