I like full coverage look. I wear Laura Mercier Silk Cream foundation and love it. I use lorac primer and powder...BUT I have such an oily face that makeup melts off my nose especially. Do you have any ideas how to keep my red nose covered?
Im not a huge make up girl so I dont know most of the tricks or what exactly I should be doing, but I feel as though anything I have tried, doesnt work. My forehead and nose is what gets the most oily, then the rest of my face gets dried out. Im also acne prone. I used Covergirl for most of my life, then just this summer switched to MUFE HD and I love the coverage it gives me and how little of it I need. I ordered the MUFE matte foundation last week and just got it the other day. Tried it once, and it instantly dried my whole face out way too much. I've tried using Vichy mattifying gel under my MUFE HD and it may have given me an extra hour before things got oily. Before I ordered more MUFE HD, I thought I'd see what you guys have to say. Any suggestions for me?
I currently use philosophy purity to remove all of my face makeup. I like it because if I use makeup remover wipes it will irritate my face. I normally get oily on my t-zone and I'm acne prone. So does anyone have any recommendations on face makeup removers? I just want to try something different. I also have acne scars, does anyone have any recommendations on any products that will help with that? Any skin care products from cleansers (currently use nude), moisturizers (currently using Clinique), toners, exfoliator, masks. Anything will help thanks 😊
Hi everyone, I have the HARDEST time finding a great moisturizer for my skin. I would say my skin is oily due to the amount of moisture my skin gives after applying my moisturizer. This is my routine. -Cleanse with Aveeno brightening daily cleanser (actually the best and works wonderful) -Masks: I have used Glamglow Thirsty Mud works great, Boscia black peel-off mask works great, Peter Thomas Roth cucumber mask wonderful! I have no problems with these masks. -Moisturizer: I have used Oil Free Sheer Transformation Moisturizer by Ole Henricksen and changed (just two weeks ago) to Origins Anti-Aging oil-free moisturizer. The origins worked for the first 4 days and now I am getting back the same effect of oily skin just when I applied the Sheer Transformation. What have you guys tried that works? and please do correct me if I am wrong in any of my routines I am open to suggestions. Maaaaaaaany thanks!
Hi, so I'm 20 and I'm a full time student so I don't have much time or money, basically. Im in desperate need of some new skin care products! I have oily / combo skin with some redness and discolouration from acne scars that I want to get rid of. I don't really struggle with acne now, just a couple pimples once in a while, so that's not a huge concern. But basically, I'm just looking for some wallet-friendly skin care products to help with redness, discolouration and overall appearance of the skin. Im open to serums, cleansers, masks, scrubs, night creams, anything relatively low maintenance! Thanks a bunch! xo
I have extremely oily and acne prone skin. I have been using CoverFx and for a couple of months it seemed like a breakthrough. Then I started noticing that I was getting shiny again so I got the primer. Now I am completely melted by noon. I am a nurse and I work 12 hour shifts. I need good coverage so my patients won't think that some teenager with acne is taking care of them but I also don't want to be accused of being sweaty (which has been pointed out to my embarrassment). I need some sort of treatment or alternative that will keep me put together through the course of a day. I also cannot change my cleanser, since it is one of the few that doesn't give me a rash. Any advice?
I have oily skin, with a pink/red undertone. I have been using Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder, but it seems to dry my skin out really quickly, I also have been using Cover FX primer and I think it has been working good. I tried Clinique and Smashbox and they made my skin break out with acne... I am in search of a different liquid foundation that might work for my skin type, or a BB or CC cream that might work for summer, Any suggestions? Also, I have checked out Mac - Studio Fix Fluid, and it seems to be okay, any thoughts?
I have oily and very sensitive skin. I want to find a good natural, healthy makeup to use. I use Revlon but I want something new. Is bare minerals a good brand to invest in? I don't want to spend all of that money and hate it.
Hello, I have pretty pale, combo skin, and I get pretty oily in my t-zone throughout the day, mostly around my nose and my chin area. Once I start getting pretty oily, my makeup ends up looking super cakey right around my nose and my entire chin. I've tried blotting papers, blotting powders, and coverage powder to try and bring back my original airbrushed finish, but nothing really helps, it still looks cakey after I take away the oil. My current routine is a lot better than my last one, but it's still not as good as I'd like it to be. If anyone has any suggestions on how to fix the cake face that would be super helpful, thank you! What I currently use: NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation Urban Decay Oil Slick Too Faced Primed and Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer Too Faced Primed and Poreless Pressed Powder
Hi everyone! I have the Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation, and while I think it works great, my face still feels oily, and within about 5 hours my face starts to feel really oily, which is pretty normal for me I guess. But I'm wondering if it might have something to do with my primer? Maybe a different one would help really make it matte? I'm using the Rimmel London Matte Primer. Or is this something that might be helped by a new skincare routine?? Any thoughts??
I've been using Tarte's BB Cream for a while and loved it but wanted more coverage, I got talked into the new Bare Minerals Serum Foundation which I now layer on top! I like it but by the end of the day my face is an oil slick! Any advice on good BB cremes and/or foundations to combat oily skin? Preferably something oil free and all natural
What is the best exfoliator or cream or face wash for blackheads? (very bad around the chin, jaw line, side of lip area) (wicked blackheads, no acne!!!) I do not pick them (try very hard not too), but they get pretty fair in size. I am noticing some scars being left once they heal. I use the Simple brand exfoliator, which was doing justice now it's not. I feel as it minimizes the blackheads, but they aren't going away completely.
Hi, I am looking for a light weight natural looking skin like foundation light - medium coverage that does not look cakey that would also be great for the crazy summer months in tx I have really oily skin currently using Estée lauder DW although it does control my oily skin for a very long time and covers my mild rosacea I just find it to heavy mask like and I feel like it makes me look old
I have been using Ole Hendrikson Vitamin C moisturizer in the morning and a Kiehls moisturizer at night. My face has been flaky lately. I have also used Peter Roth Thomas's 3 mask kit to try and combat this issue. Any advice on something else I could use? I'm not opposed to using one lotion for day and night. I have combination skin that has a tendency to break out at times. Thanks.
I'm trying to find a good oil control/mattifying primer but a lot of the things break me out. I've found that Smashbox and Benefit both cause me to break out into cystic acne and have been too scared to try anything else (especially now that my skin is doing pretty good). Please help!
I feel like I have tried everything. Can someone please tell me what skin care regimen will reduce the oiliness of my skin and what makeup will contain the oiliness of my skin for more than two hours? I put makeup on at 8am every day and by noon I am extremely oily. I am currently using Proactiv for my skin care regimen and I am using Cover FX mattifying primer and the Cover FX BB foundation, as well as the Cover FX bronzer. I wash my brushes regularly. I don't know what I am doing wrong and need some help. The girls who work in makeup stores, and I am sorry to throw you all in one pot, I think are just looking to get me to buy the most expensive thing. I don't care how expensive anything is as long as it works, and I have tried many cheap and expensive things, its like my skin gets used to a certain regimen or makeup and then it doesn't work anymore. I would love an educated answer if someone could please give one!
Who's tried the Omorovicza Skin Care line? I contacted them just to get some samples to try their products because i'm looking for new skin care for my Oily, Sensitive, slightly Acne Prone, dehydrated skin. If anyone has tried this brand please let me know what you think.
I have Oily, Sensitive skin that breaks out easily to certain products and i need help finding a better skin care routine because every time I put on foundation it looks patchy and cakey and gross. I don't know if its because I don't have a moisturizer that is working for me or because my cleanser is drying me skin out because its for acne or because it's the weather i'm not really sure. But i need suggestions on products or brands that will be good for my skin that I can try out. My teacher in cosmetology school when I was doing told me to try Clarins and he knows a lot about the products because he used to sell Clarins but I don't know a lot about that brand. If anyone does please let me know. I will truly appreciate it.
Hi guys! Long time no talk (sorry about that, my schooling has taken over my life)... Anyway, I am here to ask a question about moisturizing the nose: Lately, my nose has been breaking out like crazy, I am talking about a lot of white heads and redness. I have never moisturized my nose because it is already super oily and I felt like it didn't need the moisture. But then I was thinking... "well, my whole face is oily and I moisturize that, why don't I moisturize my nose?" Do you think I am breaking out because my nose is producing more oil than it should be because I am not moisturizing it? Also, do you think that my nose would be shinier than the sun if I did moisturize it? I am hesitant, but let me know your thoughts! Thanks in advance, Michael, xo
I have oily, acne prone, sensitive skin that gets occasional dry spots (like super scary dry!) because of my acne medication. I'm looking for a moisturizer that won't make my skin any worse but will help with the spots that get nasty. Advice?
I have really oily skin and need a foundation that has good coverage, but mainly will keep me as shine free as possible. Also any recommendations of what kinds of primers and powders to pair with it? When I say oily skin I mean OILLYYYYY! Please help.
What products at Sephora do you recommend for controlling a super oily T-zone and reducing shine? I have Glam Glow every day cleanser and the glam glow mask already, but doesn't seem to help my forehead area.
