My flawless matte base for oily skin
My flawless matte base for oily skin
Hey everyone! It’s a new start to the week and I wanted to share my oily skin matte base for make up. Lately I’ve been purchasing a lot of foundations because I wanted to try something different and nothing compares to this base routine. I’m at the point where I don’t even know why I’m trying other things 😂 I have majorly oily skin with acne and pigmentation issues. Primer - COVER FX - Gripping Primer I’ve tried a lot of gripping primers that have left my face very cakey (looking at you Milk Make Up) and this by far is the best one on the market. It retails for $38. It is a clear gel primer that has a little bit of tackiness to it. Cover FX suggests it’s best for normal to dry skin but I’ve never had a problem with it. It creates beautiful tacky base for my make up to stick to without feeling cakey, causing texture, or pilling. Foundation - ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation THE BEST FOUNDATION FOR OILY SKIN. EVER. This formula for me is a more medium to full coverage so it doesn’t cover all my post acne pigmentation but with a light second layer it immediately goes to full coverage without ever feeling cakey. It dries down which is essential for oily skin so it’s not slipping and sliding all over the place. It never settles into my pores and my managers at work always compliment my skin when I’m wearing this. It’s like having a second, flawless layer of skin. It retails for $43 which is pricey but well worth it. I think my only critique is there is no pump (you can buy one for $10 😭). I always use a sponge to apply. I have the shade 1W1 Bone. Concealer - NARS - Soft Matte Complete Concealer One of my favorite concealers! It retails for $30. I actually apply this with my fingers as I can really get into all the creases and crevices of my eye and blend it out fabulous. I find it applies best with the fingers. It’s a matte yet creamy consistency that isn’t too heavy on the under eyes. It’s also perfect to apply on acne spots before you apply your foundation. I have the shade Chantilly. Powder - FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Setting Powder & laura mercier - Secret Brightening Powder for Under Eyes I use two powders for my base only because I have very apparent fine lines under my eyes. The Laura Mercier powder is the only powder I’ve found to really minimize those. It retails for $28. I take a little fluffy crease brush and dust it on my under eyes after my concealer. It’s so finely milled it blurs the area while brightening it. I was shocked the first time I tried it. Then I use the Fenty powder all over my face. It’s more of a fluffy powder and the lavender shade doesn’t darken my foundation like others can. It retails for $32. Sometimes I will end with the Urban Decay All Nighter to melt the powders into the skin but not always. 🖤 #CheriePartner
