Post in Oily Skin



I have extremely oily acne prone skin with large pores and have tried numerous primers and they never seem to work. About 2 hrs in and I'm having to mop the oiliness from my skin and my makeup is sliding off my face. What is a good primer? I use a serum and moisturizer for oily skin and I use powder foundation. I was looking at the Peter Roth skin to die for primer and Dermablend pore saver matter primer, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated 🙏

Re: Primers

I use a powder foundation too, and I have actually been pretty pleased with just Wet n Wild matte primer from the drugstore.

Re: Primers

Try MILK MAKEUP Hydro Grip Primer 1.52 oz/ 45 mL amazing for those of us with oily skin.

Re: Primers

What primers have you tried before, @sspivey81? I'm pretty partial to BECCA Cosmetics Backlight Priming Filter Face Primer Backlight Priming Filter Face Primer but Smashbox has some good ones as well. If you're skin is that oily though, you may need to adjust your skincare routine to help cut down the oiliness.
