Help! Oil overload

I have super oily skin and it makes my makeup look terrible by the end of the day. I need help finding a foundation and setting powder that can keep my face together for a full day (6:00-9:00)

Re: Help! Oil overload

@HHHayden   I don't have a favorite setting powder, but I tried my NARS Soft Matte Complete Foundation last month on a 90 degree, sunny, humid day where I was outside most of the time, and to be honest, sweating a lot.  I still had some foundation on me that came off when I washed my face at the end of the day.


I do notice that when I use a powder foundation as a setting powder, (being careful not to apply too much and look like I'm wearing a mask,) it tends to last longer than any of the setting powders I own.  I believe I used Urban Decay Stay Naked The Fix Powder Foundation 30CP  on top of the Nars Soft Matte foundation.

@HHHayden  I’ve been using #LAWLESS Mini Seal The Deal Loose Setting Powder Classic Translucent  and been loving that my makeup seems to stay out all day. No movement looks amazing!

Re: Help! Oil overload

Try out the Fenty matte foundation she has. It does a good job for my oily skin. And as for powders I still have yet to find a good one, just try a bunch out. I use to use Rimmel matte translucent powder all the time and liked it.
