What are your favorite face primers, setting powders, and setting sprays? I currently use ELF primer (the yellow hydrating one and the one I included in this post) for my face. Lately it seems that no matter how much setting powder I use, everything just slides off my face at the end of the day. Please suggest something for me! #oilyskin #primers #settingpowder

Does anyone have any good primer suggestions for combination to oily skin? Every primer I've used so far makes me feel greasy and I find myself trying to wipe it away to get rid of the feeling. Even better if it cancels out redness!

@Marissa Rose love the porefessional but be careful not to mix a silicone based primer with a water based foundation. I got the Born this Way foundation and was still using the porefessional at the time, I always creased terribly almost instantly on my forehead and smile lines. I’ve been using the Tatcha Silk Canvas with the Maybelline Fit Me (matte) and it works wonders for oily skin, still get a little shine but I work in a kitchen with heat so I’m sure it’d work for just a day out or an inside job lol

Does anyone know a moisturizing primer before makeup for dry skin this time of year when it gets cold and dry? I normally have oily skin but when winter comes my skin tends to get a little dry. #primer #moisturizer #skincare #skin #dry #oily

What is a good moisturizer for oily skin? I typically don’t use moisturizer because my face is already oily but in the winter it does start to dry out a little bit and I use topical acne medication that sometimes dries it out as well.

Hi! I used to skip moisturizer as well because my skin is so oily. However, I came to learn that skipping moisturizer simply makes you produce more oil because you’re not hydrating your skin. I really like 3 moisturizers, all within different price ranges. The Simple light moisturizer is a really nice one for the day before makeup application. It’s about $4 for a little pouch, and the pouch lasts about 2 months if you use a pea size amount. The Glow Recipe Watermelon Juice moisturizer is very light weight as well and works nicely during the day— $39. At night (and sometimes during the day if I’m not wearing make up) I use the Drunk Elephant Protink Polypeptide moisturizer. It’s super rich and hydrating and has really made a difference in how oily I wake up in the morning. It’s in the pricier side, $68. Marula oil works wonders for those dry patches you are experiencing from the topical medication. I use it at night on any dry patches I have and the next morning it’s practically gone. Hope this helps!

My face is so dry because of the winter time... if I use a hydrating, non-matte foundation it makes me oily and break out but if I use a matte foundation it looks bad cause I’m so dry. Suggestions?

Look for foundations that are noncomodegenic - aka won’t clog your pores. Also, stay away from ingredients like sulfates and silicones - these only add to the acne problem. Make sure you hydrate your skin before applying foundations, this way your skin gets directly quenched giving you a nice base to apply foundation. Serums work best for me. I use a couple drops of Drunk Elephant Marula Oil mixed with a little of their B-Hydra if I want an extra dose of moisture under my foundation. As always, hydrate your skin from the inside and drink lots of water. The acne could be caused by an overcompensation of oil production in order to try to balance out your dry skin. If you treat your skin, finding a foundation that works will be a lot easier! :)

The best drugstore primer for oily skin but won’t clog pores and cause breakouts? I have oily and acne prone skin and my face usually gets oily after about 4 hours or less of wearing my makeup.

I have dry, acne prone skin and I have been trying everything to get rid of my acne for the past year! nothing works (curology, neutrogena light mask, acne washes, tea tree oil, mario badescu- you name it!) does anyone have any recommendations for a natural at home remedy for acne? I’m done with all the chemicals ingredients on my face.

I know you said no chems but the only thing that worked for me was 1 session of a chemical peel (ask for 7 layers) and drink ONLY water in place of any other beverage. ONLy WaTeR!! Don’t believe me, look at my before and afters. Still can’t believe it’s me. - 1 session of a strong chemical peel -Drink Water ONLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -Oxy gently in circular motions until face starts feeling tingly. -and an oil free moisturizer! Let me know how it goes! Good luck!

Honestly I did like three to four different sessions of chemical peels and they really were life changing. Unfortunately for me my acne continued so I went on Accutane

Hey guys! So I have combination skin more on the oily side and I’ve been trying to find a foundation that actually makes your skin flawless without that “bumpy” look. Any hacks as to how to avoid that? And any foundation recommendations?

When i want extra coverage, i love IT cosmetics CC+ or Your Skin But Better. I only wear full foundation on special occasions so i can let my skin breathe because it’s very sensitive to breakouts. This has never given me problems.

This stuff is gonna absorb all your excess oils and protect your face. It’s not super heavy like most sunscreens too. You can swipe one of these for cheap at a Walmart (depending on where you live of course)

The brand is Touch in Sol. I got this in my Boxycharm and I love it soooooo much . I have combination skin BUT my T zone gets overly oily and my makeup would literally just melt off that area but I’ve noticed it doesn’t do that with this product. My foundation/ concealer stays in tact until I take it off.

Any recommendations. I have dry/oily skin. I can’t use any setting powders because they cake after a while of wearing it. I use a cream foundation because it doesn’t cling or sink. But since it’s a cream then it looks oily. What do I do?
