OILY SKIN CRISIS
How do I successfully combat my issue with my oily skin? I feel like I have tried everything. I use a gentle cleanser (which contain salicylic acid) that doesn't cause my skin to feel tight or dry, an oil free moisturizer, and all oil free/matte makeup. I've also tried using oil as a mositurizer (such as coconut oil because it was recommened) to combat it which hasn't worked either. I am constantly having to blot my face numerous times a day and I still feel as if all my makeupis melting away. It feels like i'm going on an endless journey to find what is right for my skin.

which one of these foundations will work for oily skin?
I have done some research and I like the idea of all of these. Which one will stay matte all day? If I use a primer and loose powder.   Lighter coverage: ABH foundation stick milk sunshine skin tint urban decay one and done hybrid nars velvet matte skin tint   fuller, heavier coverage foundations: Kat Von D foundation Urban Decay all nighter tarte rainforest of the sea   I don't mind full coverage but I am wondering if you can make them lighter for the day time if possible? I would rather have a lighter coverage but I don't know if any of them stay matte all day

SOS! OILY SKIN FROM H3LL!
I have suffered from oily skin for my entire life. I try to be thankful because I know I'll continue to have fewer wrinkles when I'm older however, for right now I want to die!    I have acne prone skin as well (as if it doesn't already go hand in hand!) and I'm currently looking to totally revamp my skincare/makeup routine. I've used foundations such as Kat Von D lock it foundation which moved whenever I would even touch my face, transferring to my hands, you could actually SEE where I had touched my face because the foundation would transfer and separate so badly. I've also tried Nars foundation, Tarte Shape tape concealer which I actually love, but don't think it's great for my oily skin sadly I'm obsessed with Laura Mercier setting powder, and have tried some drugstore foundations, but everything seems to literally want to slide off my face.    I have used benefit porefessional primer for about six months and though I love it, I also don't think this is great for oily skin. My Becca poreless primer seems to work well, but I'm open to other suggestions as well.   I'm thinking a lot of this could be helped over time with the right skin care. The right wash, toner, moisturizers, and masks could really do the trick as I notice the difference with masks almost immediately, my face loves them! Any good face/sheet mask suggestions for oily/acne prone skin? I've read that I should be hydrating my skin more even though it is oily... I'll literally take all the help I can get!   Thanks! xx

NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 30 4. tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen 5. tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15 6. Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick   Can anyone tell me anything about any of these? I do want it to last all day without getting oily and cakey.

Kat Von D lock it foundation - oily skin, moisturizer, and primer?
Here are my questions 1. is this sweat proof and will it last all day? I have oily skin so thats why im asking.. I will set with powder but I am still asking. I plan to use in the summer 2. what kind of a moisturizer should I get if I tend to use this foundation... would I use a more mattfying moisturizer (that is for oily skin) or should I get a hydrating moistruzier (that is for all skin types) 3. This sorta goes with the moisturizer question ..but what kind of primer.. would i get a mattfying one or a hydrating one? 4. will this foundation work if I have dry patches?

Best Makeup and Skincare for Oily/Acne Prone Skin
So I have super oily acne prone skin and large pores. I'm looking for face washes, or toners, and possibly foundation or BB cream that would "work" or "be ok". I have tried the Clinique pink toner (I forgot what its called. Clarifying Toner?) and Kate Somerville Acne Face Wash. They both work pretty well but the toner doesn't keep my skin feeling fresh. And something using both can be slightly drying so I sometimes use a moisturizing gel or facial essence.  So to sum it all up, I'm looking for skin care that can help with my oily skin and potentially some form of makeup that won't oil up (i.e primer, foundation, BB cream, concealer). I don't need full coverage, light to medium would be perfectly fine, just to help cover up my trouble stops and have a light veil over my discoloration. Thank you so much!

Wedding makeup for newby
I'm looking for makeup for my wedding in September that'll hold up in heat and sweat/tears/possible rain. (I know I'm asking a lot but I have no idea where to start. I am overwhelmed by so many choices at Sephora) I have very sensitive skin that breaks out with most of the covergirl, neutrogena, and Avon foundations.  I recently tried tarte rainforest of the sea foundation, and I love it. Hasn't broken me out yet! Will it cause flashback? I need a blush that won't disappear in 2 hours. What is a good one? Also would highlight be a bad idea since I'm oily?  This world of makeup is confusing. What is a good place to start with the start of it all being my wedding?

Cheap Primers for Oily Skin
Okay y'all, I need some advice. I have oily skin problems, mostly around my nose and on my chin. I use a matte foundation and it's AMAZING, but half way through my day, my oil gets so bad to the point it will show through and crack my foundation causing it to look all patchy and eventually come off. Can anyone recommend a good Matte primer that's below $20? I had a few in mind, but I wanted some recommendations first. Thanks!! 😭💖

Moisturizer for oily acne prone skin

I saw the new olehenriksen balance it all set (cleanser, toner and hydrator) and I read about the Jack Black double duty face moisturizer with SPF. I have oily acne prone skin.

Hi! I'm looking for a skin care routine for at night and a quick one in the morning. I am 16. My t zone is oily mostly around my nose and chin but the rest of my face is mostly normal. Also sometimes on my cheeks i get little bumps that aren't pimples their just bumps. I get very few pimples but when i do they tend to be on my nose.
