I Need Some Makeup Basics

OK y’all, I might be asking a lot, but here I go! I need a long lasting, medium-full coverage, relatively affordably priced foundation and concealer. My face tends to get pretty dry with some products, but I am always really oily in my T zone. I tend like more of a natural finish on foundation, but I’m not to picky. I’m looking for a concealer that won’t dry out my skin/ under eye but also isn’t too oily. Any suggestions?

Love the Too Faced primer (feel like smooth primer base helps with cakeiness), not sure if you’re interested in DIY-ing your own cushion compact (got mine off of Amazon). I followed YouTube tutorials 1/3 Clinique bb cream with spf, 3 drops of oil-free serum (I’m cheap too so used a Sephora sample of the Lancôme anti-age serum), and 2/3 of faux filter foundation from Huda. Sometimes it’s about the application and I find cushion compacts really give you that natural moisturized face with nice buildable coverage.
