Looking for medium coverage for oily t zone

I have combination skin with normal cheeks and an oily t-zone it is not as bad but if I don't use a setting powder it gets oily fast! It's becoming a problem in the hot sometime humid weather we are having here down south. What would be the best primer and foundation to use to help keep this at bay?

I would also recommend you look at the Dior Forever Flawless foundation I live in the South and I actually went running yesterday and my makeup still looked almost perfect when I got done. Amazing!

Thanks Diana!

I will be sure to try out those primers! I have tried Clinique Stay Matte before and it cakes up on my face. I prefer medium coverage, the Nars Sheer Matte has done well, just wondering if maybe the primer will help control the oil and make the foundation stay shine free longer.

Hi JaminPride13, 


Have you tried the Laura Mercier Oil Free Primers? They are so smooth and light on the skin and are great for oily skin types. 




You may even want to look at the Givenchy Mister Mat which is amazing for oily t zones and has a bit more of a gel-texture to really keep those oils away from causing shine!




As for a foundation, try an oil free foundation as well to keep the makeup from sliding off, although with the right primer you shouldn't have this problem! Do you like a light foundation or a full?


Nars Sheer Matte




Clinique Stay Matte Oil Free Makeup (my personal favorite!)



Benefit Hello Flawless for a powder medium finish (great if you need touchups as well!) 




Lorac Porefection Baked Perfecting Powder (brand new and should be in stock soon! it's amazing for oily and acne prone skin to minimize pores and keep shine at bay)





Luv&Lipgloss, Diana
