Q. Looking for skin matifying products; what primers, moisturizers, and foundation go together?
I don't know anything about this stuff. I've never worn a primer before and have yet to find a good moisturizer.     I was hoping someone could recommend me some products that would make all 3 of those items go well together (as in their ingredients not cancelling each other out, causing break outs if mixed, as well as not making it look or feel excessive).   If a primer that doubles as a moisturizer exists, then that would probably be ideal since my skin might be too oily to require both? But I want my foundation to look better and my skin does get flaky in places if not moisturized.    I currently use: cleanser, exfoliation, toner;;; moisturizer, straight to foundation, and then powder if I'm oily/feel myself getting oily   Things you might need to know: Skin Type: combination-oily? -Shine on forehead, nose, sometimes chin -Flaky on the bottom of the cheeks near the mouth, sometimes nose, sometimes forehead (even though those places are also oily)   Acne?: -blackheads (nose, a little between brow, a little on chin) -- don't know why -seldom get cysts (chin) but that's usually hormonal -prone to getting closed whiteheads (forehead, a little on chin) -- so the product can't be pore clogging please D:   Goal/look I desperately want: -hide oily skin -keep shine away -not needing to touch up on face powder/blot oil constantly -fill/hide pores that foundation fails to do -I want a matified/airbrushed look to last for as long as possible thanks to the product I'm wearing (I heard some of them can somehow absorb the oil throughout the day?)   The foundation I use is: Clinique pore refining solutions.   -Not looking to change this product. -Works great but I want it to improve. -(flakyness shows, -**oilyness doesn't stay hidden**, -redness from scarring shows, -pores get hidden on the nose but **don't get filled/hidden as well on forehead**)        **=thing I want solved the most   The moisturizer I use is: Clinque dramatically different moisturizing gel for combination skin.  -It leaves my skin oily and doesn't seem to absorb well. -Flaky parts take forever to recover. -(I use only half a pump since the full pump is too much.)     I'm totally lost. Too many products here and I don't know anything!   Please help, thank you.     These are the ones that caught my interest but idk if they mesh well or do what I want it to do (absorb oil throughout day, refine/hide pores with my foundation)   PRIMER: -SMASHBOX photo finish foundation primer -isn't vs oily skin specific   MOISTURIZER: -SHISEIDO pureness matifying moisturizer oil-free  -BOSCIA revitalizing hydration gel -isn't vs oil i think

Q. Good liquid foundation for oily skin?
I have combination skin that can get extremely oily all over especially in the hot summer. I need a full coverage mattifying foundation that can hold up all day. Right now, I use Benefit Porefessional to prime followed by L'Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle Foundation and MAC Blot powder. That seems to hold up pretty well through the day and gives me ok coverage, but the foundation accentuates dry patches like crazy. I also have a lot of hyperpigmentation and scarring from acne so I would like to use a full coverage foundation. I have heard really good things about Kat Von D foundation and I was really curious about that as well as anything anyone could suggest. Thank you

Q. Help!
Hi everyone! This is my first time posting because I'm so fed up and wanted some advice. I'm 25 years old with combination skin. Oily forehead and cheeks and dry around chin area. I've struggled with acne forever and tried everything. I keep getting acne on my cheeks. Also, just for context, I do have a hormonal imbalance and am taking bc for it. I wash, tone, and use moisturizer, but I notice later in the day that my cheeks are red and my face looks shiny and greasy with large pores on my cheeks. Here's the deal: I have no idea what products to use and am overwhelmed whenever I look something up. Primers, bb creams, cc creams, mineral, matte...it's a foreign language to me. I was thinking about coming in for a consultation but I feel like an idiot b/c everyone my age seems to know what they're doing and I don't even know the basics! Also I live in a humid region and was wondering about makeup routines. When it's so hot, how do you get your primer/foundation/everything else to stay on without your face looking like its melting! Helppp

Q. Good foundation for oily skin?
I have oily skin and use my mom's bare minerals foundation and find that at the end of the day, especially on school days, the makeup looks splotchy, like it sort of melted in places, patchy, and clumpy, especially on my chin and I'm not sure why this is happening is it the makeup or the oiliness?   If I put on less powder would it not look as patchy? Should I use a primer? Any good ones to suggest? Does anyone know why this happens?   I'm new with this makeup thing so I really need some advice!
