If there’s already a thread on this, feel free to send me there. I’m sorry if there is. I just woke up and its 4am lol.
I know Marlena created a video on makeup primers for oily skin but I wanted actual reviews from more people who have oily skin who’ve tried something that works well. I’m looking for a moisturizer, foundation, primer and sealer. Doesn’t matter whether I have to buy it online or in a store. I don’t mind. Nothing over 50 dollars a piece please lol.
I’d really appreciate it. I’ve heard mixed reviews about some of the sealers she mentioned and the girls at Sephora said I should use Urban Decay’s 24 hour makeup sealer in De-Slick but I’ve heard it doesn’t work. I just want to know what worked for you well. I also heard that using a very light coating of milk of magnesia works well but not to do it every day, which is fine since I don’t wear a full face of makeup every day, usually just a primer so I don’t have oily skin all day. Thanks again!July 19, 2012 at 11:31 am #182220
This is just what I do and I really have more combination/oily, especially since I really started taking care of my skin like I’m supposed to.
Wash my face with Cetaphil Dermacontrol Foam Face Wash or Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser / Mask (I find it works better if I alternate between them, otherwise my face gets angry). Pat dry.
Moisture with Cetaphil Dermacontrol Moisturizer (this is by far the best moisturizer I have come across so far). Let that soak in while I brush my teeth / get dressed (about 15 minutes).
Prime face with Monistat Chafing gel.
Apply Revlon Whipped Foundation with clean fingers and buff with a brush. Then I usually put on my eye makeup. After that is done I apply my Palladio Rice Powder with a puff. (I have almost given up on trying to use blush because I think a lot of them have broken me out / irritated my skin .)
I always take off my makeup with either Pond’s cold cream or Nuance makeup remover.
Anyway, that is my regimen and my foundation usually pretty much behaves all day. I may have to dab my forehead or nose once but that may be because where I live it is like 100 degrees right now. Ugh. There is also some kind of oil-cleansing method that some women use on here but I haven’t tried it so I can’t speak for how well it works.July 19, 2012 at 11:25 pm #182391
Oooh, thanks! Monistat chafing gel is that in the feminine area or the makeup area?July 20, 2012 at 12:58 am #182397
What exactly are you looking for in a primer, foundation, and sealer/spray? Saying “for very oily skin” doesn’t really tell me much beyond the blatantly obvious issue of needing products which can withstand uber oily skin. You don’t mention what kind of primer you’d like, what issues you want your primer to address, the kind of foundation type you want, the finish or the coverage level there of, or specify what you’re looking for in a setting spray.
Also, what’s your skincare routine? Managing oily skin starts with getting your skincare right.July 20, 2012 at 6:31 am #182405
I agree with Aro. My face used to be very very oily before I started being more proactive with my skin care. Yes it is found with the yeast creams and things.July 20, 2012 at 3:19 pm #182486
I have to third Aro’s question re: skincare routine. Primer, foundation, and setting sprays will not sort out oily skin. A good skincare routine will.July 20, 2012 at 5:28 pm #182551
I have very oily skin as well. Starting with a good face wash makes a huge difference. The one that works well for me is the Neutrogena oil- free acne wash. The moisturizer I like is the L’Oreal sublime sun liquid silk sun shield ( it’s oil-free). Choose a primer that best suits your needs (i.e. reduce appearance of pores, etc.) that is also oil-free. The ones I’ve tried that work pretty well is the NARS oil-free pore prime and MAC matte gel. An amazing setting spray is the Face Atelier Ultra Matte spray. That one you can purchase online. I hope this helps.
