Setting Spray, Foundation & Primer

Need Primer, Foundation, Powders & Setting Spray suggestions please! ☺️ I work at a very high paced restaurant where it’s always hot, and I am constantly sweating, sometimes I’m nearly drenched in sweat & most days I have to use high grade medical tape just to keep my Thrive DFT patch on & even then it doesn’t wanna stay on. 

I have oily combo skin with a crazy super oily t zone & I sweat a lot. 

I want a foundation that looks like natural skin (so nothing cakey), high end or drug store is okay & I need it to last at least 10 hours.
By the end of my shift my t zone is super super oily, shinny & sweaty looking. The rest of my face looks okay-ish tho. 

So far I’ve tried:

Too Faced born this way (original one)

L’Oréal Infallible 24 hour (original one)

Physicians Formula Butter Belive it 

Lancôme (the lift one)

Nars radiant glow (or whatever the name is)

Serval others I can’t think of right now.


Primers I’ve tried: 

meld mint melt 

beauty blender leveler

tarte (the poreless one in the pit)

wet n wild impossible

wet n wild rose water

benefit porefesstional

too faced hangover 

And about a dozen other random ones I’ve had, some of which work great for regular going out but not working makeup.


Any recommendations you have would be great!!


Re: Setting Spray, Foundation & Primer

Charlotte Tilbury Mini Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray 1.1 oz/ 34 ml is hands down the best setting spray. 
I find that when I am done applying my cream products spraying a few times helps with my foundation staying longer. Then spraying again after I am done applying my powder products.

For setting sprays I’d recommend the Huda resting boss face or the One size On till dawn matifying spray

Thank you for the recommendations! I’ll definitely check those out 😊
