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

My foundation wont stop being flaky or splotchy! Help! I use primer, a damp beauty blended & setting powder and setting spray for the whole face it’s also a medium to full coverage foundation.

It’s possible your skin is dehydrated! Skin can drink foundation, making it look blotchy. Make sure you’re moisturizing well.

@Caroline Morgan Touchet I second this!!! It’s super smoothing, blurring, pore filling, it keeps my skin from getting super oily and helps keep my makeup from breaking up. Personally, it’s worth the hype!

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

I use this one and it’s my favorite. I tried it almost two years ago and, since then, i never reached towards a different one. It’s my favorite by far and it has spf in it which is really good for the skin and it helps the foundation stay on longer

Hi! So I’m trying to find products to better help my foundation stay on and stay matte. I have very oily skin and have tried so many different foundations and have tried mattifying primers too. They either make me breakout or they just flat out don’t work. I’ve even tried the IL Makiage ‘find your perfect shade’ foundation, it’s better for summer and when I’m more tan, but it most definitely didn’t live up to its promise of staying even after using a mattifying primer. I’m also trying to look for products that aren’t crazy expensive.

I need a recommendation on a primer that that fills in pores. I have noticeable pores on my cheeks near my nose. I’ve used quite a few different primers but the pores are still noticeable in that area. Anyone else have this problem that can recommend a primer that works?

Best primer for acne prone combination skin? I’ve been skipping primers because I’m afraid they will clog my pores. But I know I should be using one. Can anyone suggest one that they have had good experience with for acne prone skin?

I like Murad InvisiScar Resurfacing Treatment. It’s not “technically” a primer but it works great as one and even helps clear up acne scars and existing acne clears up quicker. It goes on nicely with just one pump. Smooth, silky texture. It’s also great if you aren’t wearing makeup, it mattifies and helps to make your skin velvety! I love it!
