Mix in a few drops of Custom Blot Drops into your foundation to lessen the shine and give yourself an all over matte finish. 3. Ace Your Base You might be surprised to learn that applying Custom Blot Drops BEFORE foundation will also help control excess shine.. It’s the perfect base before your base. Use your fingers to press a few drops all over your complexion. Follow with your primers and foundations. Have you tried this technique? Tell us by commenting below. 4. Shine Shield Not a fan of using powder to set your foundation? Use Custom Blot Drops as the final step of your routine and lock in your makeup for all-day shine control. This works best for normal to mildly oily skin. If you have very oily skin, you should continue to bake, set, & finish with translucent setting powder. If it works, don’t change it If you’re touching up throughout the day always remember. If you swipe, you wipe. So press the product onto the oily parts of your skin and avoid rubbing it on. Tati truly explains it best.

I'm currently using only one oil, and at night at that - the Boscia Tsubaki one. I have sensitive combination skin on the oily side (but dry spots...). However, Sunday Riley just came out with the UFO Oil and I've been sampling it and I love it. It's great for my easily congested chin acne prone skin and I'm teetering on the edge of purchasing the full size lol T_T That being said, I'm also considering Sunday Riley's Juno Oil, since winter is coming. I know there's Flora and Luna too, but I'm allergic to avocados and that might extend to the oils, and both products contain avocado oil. I'm also looking into getting the Herbivore Botanicals Lapis Oil, to use during the day since I currently am only using UFO at night. Or something to switch around using UFO with so my skin doesn't get too tolerant. Anyone have any experiences using multiple facial oils? Does it work okay? I would probably also use a light oil-free moisturizer with these oils since my skin does not like heavier ones at all. Thanks in advance!
I'm 21 and have suffered from acne for as long as I can remember. I've been to the dermatologist and have been perscribed multiple things that have done absolutely nothing. I've tried just about everything so I need some help. I have oily skin and I need products that help with acne or will not cause me to breakout , yet usually when I use products for acne prone skin they leave my skin with dry patches and super sensitive. Is there any products out there that will help with acne but not dry me out??
I bought this moisturizer because I have oily skin. It's been so out of control lately. This moisturizer is amazing, but it reacts with my Becca Mattifying Primer is such a awful way. I want to continue using the moisturizer because it's so good. But I wondering if there a primer that will go well with the moisturizer or a moisturizer that will go well with the primer. Please Help!
I have extremely sensitive skin + oily acne prone skin. I tried Estee Lauder Double Wear and it made me break out so much I got white painful bumps all over my face. I think it might have been an allergic reaction to some ingredients. So I wanted to try a matte medium to full cover foundation and I'm debating between Kat Von D Lock it Foundation and Becca Ever Matte Shine Proof Foundation. Which one should I get ?
I have EXTREMELY oily skin, work in a restaurant in which I am around heat a lot and run around, and I live in Texas where the humidity is decently high. I have yet to really love a foundation that controls my oil, I love power foundations but am open to suggestions.
Hi, I would like to know if there is a good moisturizer you would recommand me for an combination skin. (My T zone is really oily) I tried a few like : caudalie, clinique, la rocheposay, Khiels, argan oil josie maran, nothing helped me... Thank you for your Help !
So I was browsing Instagram today and saw something very exciting!! There were several pictures of new Sunday Riley products that I haven't seen mentioned anywhere before. One was an oil (possibly replacing Artemis, since it's being retired?) called UFO Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil. It's a 1.5% salicylic acid dry oil aimed at oily to combination skins and is supposed to target blackheads, acne and signs of aging. There's also a interesting sounding product called Martian Mattifying Gel Toner, though I couldn't find a clear picture of it. Apparently the oil and the toner have already launched in some Sephora stores! I know there are a lot of Sunday Riley lovers here, so I thought it was strange that I haven't heard anyone talking about this! Neither Sephora nor Sunday Riley has mentioned the products at all, so perhaps the stores put it out too early?? I'm very curious, does anyone have any information about it? *Photo credits go to Themakeuprepublicofficial on Instagram
hi ladies, I noticed that I have slight rosacea. Usually I just have that during the wintertime. Is it possible that the sun can cause that? What do you recommend? Cremes? Toners? Or some sprays? Thank you! N
I suffer from an extremely oily T-zone and acne scars, so need to use a full-coverage foundation. I have gone through so many products trying to find something that will smooth out my face and not melt immediately. The best I've found so far (and they're not great) is either Laura Mercier Silk Creme or Tarte Amazonian Clay foundations and Smashbox Photo Finish Oil-Free Pore Minimizing primer. BUT I can not find a moisturizer that actually mattifies and/or doesn't look cakey with foundation. I'm using Kate Somerville toner and was put on a First Aid Beauty skin care regimen after my SECOND Sephora makeover (the products aren't doing much for me). I'm also using Josie Maran argan oil at night (also not helping). Moisturizers I've tried are Sephora, Clinique, Caudalie, Peter Thomas Roth, First Aid Beauty. None mattify and all look cakey with foundation. And yes, I leave at least 15 minutes before applying each step to try and allow them to dry. I am using a foundation brush to apply foundation, and patting it with a beauty blender. Nothing works! Any suggestions? I'm at the end of my rope.
Hey, I would like to know what you all wearig under the makeup.....what kind of moisturizer etc. I was using the hydra veil from illamasque. but that makes me look to shiny, even to i love the product itself......maybe i'll try the matt veil from the same product line.. what can you recommend though?
Hello friends, I've always had relatively oily skin, but it has gotten especially oily this past month or so. I wash my face with cleanser twice everyday, and I have also tried a number of different masks (from Caudalie, Caolion, etc.). I was wondering if anybody could recommend a good foundation/translucent powder (or any makeup product, really) that could help minimize my oiliness? Something light or natural would be preferable, as I've never really worn makeup before. Mask recommendations would be appreciated as well! Thanks!
I have super oily yet very clear skin and I wanted to know what I could use to help keep my makeup on and looking good throughout the day. I use primer and setting spray but the amount of oil in my skin always starts to break up and ruin my makeup throughout the day and its so aggravating; I have no clue what to try to help fix this
I have oily/sensitive/acne prone skin and have been looking for a good moisturizer with SPF that won't irritate my skin. I recently tried Philosophy Renewed Hope with SPF 25 (only because I use the night cream and its amazing) but the SPF version is horrible for oily skin. What are the ones that work best for you?
Hi! So I have VERY oily skin and was hoping to find advice to get clear skin. I often get acne but my biggest problem is acne scars and uneven skin tone (redness, etc). I also get a TON of oil on my face after a few hours, specially around my nose and chin. any advice on products or things I can do?
I have oily skin and I use Laura Merciers oil free tinted moisturizer. Do I need to wear primer or moisturizer with it? Or can I just apply the tinted moisturizer to my face after cleansing and toning?
My skin is the bane of my existence. I have tried low and top-shelf solutions, all natural, Proactive, Acutane, creative visualization, raw veganism (ewwww) and nothing works. my pimples are small, around my hair and jaw-line. I also have a scattering of little flesh-toned bumps all over my face. My Clairisonic used to take care of those, but it seems it's not effective anymore. My skin is also VERY oily. I drink tons of water, don't smoke, workout regularly, have a relatively healthy diet, etc., and I get plenty of sleep. I do however, have a lot of stress (work 50+ hrs a week, in grad school). I've also started getting little pimples on my neck which never happened before. Currently I'm using the Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber De-Tox cleanser, Proactiv toner and the Shisheido Ibuki moisturizer. It worked for the first few weeks, but now my skin is worse than ever and the moisturizer just feels sticky on my skin. I need help! It's so expensive to keep trying new products only to have them fail and the Sephora staff always recommends products specially formulated for acne but those harsh ingredients just dry my skin and make it itchy and more prone to breakout. Any suggestions for a gentle, effective regimen? Thanks!!! XOXO
I purchased Bobbi Brown's Foundation and it's insanely liquidy. Normally my skin is absolutely fine, not dry or oily, but this foundation brings out oil around my nose and chin a little bit. I was curious what a good mattifying primer was for skin that doesn't have that much oil? P.S. Is mattifying spelled with one "t" or two?
I'm currently using the First Aid Beauty Mattifying Oil Free Moisturizing Gel and it's doing nothing for me. Can't wait until the tube is empty. I'm considering splurging on the Drunk Elephant B Hydra Intensive Hydration Gel but wanted some opinions on it since it's so pricey. I use the CeraVae PM moisturizer at night and would prefer not to use the AM in the morning before my makeup.
My skin is a combination of oily and normal. My t-zone is oily and my cheeks are completely fine. However, when I put on foundation my forehead kepis very flaky. I exfoliate once a week and I put gel moisturizer on my face after. How do I fix this?
