Oily skin babes, whats working for you?

I have oily skin with large pores and texture. Most products don’t work well with my skin or they look great but separate quickly. I’m looking for something that truly blurs my pores and keeps my skin looking smooth and not greasy. Matte foundations tend to make my skin look dull but open to recommendations.

My current routine:


 The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser 5 oz/ 150 mL 

toner (varies)

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Hydrating Serum 

The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + Beta Glucan 3.3 oz / 100 ml 

MILK MAKEUP Mini Pore Eclipse Mattifying + Blurring Makeup Primer with Niacinamide Translucent 

MILK MAKEUP Sculpt Cream Contour Stick Toasted  (under painting works best for me)

HAUS LABS BY LADY GAGA Triclone Skin Tech Medium Coverage Foundation with Fermented Arnica 070 Fair ... 

coty air spun setting powder

Urban Decay All Nighter Ultra Matte Makeup Setting Spray 4.0 fl oz/ 118 ml 

Re: Oily skin babes, whats working for you?

@lmariedowney, that's a nice list!  You could add in something for oil control like The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Oil Control Serum , but let me ask -  is there a particular area where something is separating often?  Around the nostrils is a common place, so usually I try to give those areas a little extra love in regards to exfoliation and moisturizer so that products can be smoother.   Sometimes the base itself (concealer/foundation) can be iffy, so worse case scenario, I touch it up with a spritz of setting spray and powder foundation and that usually holds for the rest of the day.
