Having a healthy ‘glow’ is in but greasy skin is not. Oily skin can dissipate makeup and even alter its color. If your skin type is combination or oily, you may want to try Neutrogena’s Shine Control Primer, which promises to control shine for 8 hours. How does it work? Patent pending protein technology absorbs excess oil, so you can use this product every day without over-drying. Since it also has optical modifiers, it minimizes the look of pores. We tried this product and loved it! If you don’t like to wear makeup you’ll like this product because it stops shine and improves the appearance of your complexion. True to its promise, Neutrogena Shine Control Primer does control oil for 8 hours. However, we wish it would last for 12 hours so the shine free effect would last even after work (after 8 hours you’ll need to bring out the oil blotters). This product is especially useful since it will make any foundation last longer and conceal more. Those with combination skin will really appreciate that it mattifies without over drying.

Lately we’ve noticed that WetnWild cosmetics has been churning out some really high quality products but at the same inexpensive prices. Our latest favorite is their Intuitive Blend Shade Adjusting Foundation + Primer. Priced at around $6, this is probably the most reasonably priced foundation you’ll ever buy! The foundation starts out white, then adjusts to match your skin color exactly. You don’t have to spend too much time in the store deciding what your color is – there are 4 color ranges to choose from (Fair, Light, Medium, and Tan). What we liked the most about this foundation is that it delivered a matte finish with natural looking coverage, which is a combination that is hard to find.

In the summer’s hot weather, your oil glands go into overdrive, dissolving foundation way before you get home. To keep your foundation in place, we recommend Revlon’s Beyond Natural Smoothing Primer. Put it on after your moisturizer and before your foundation. The result is an all day flawless look. This product is great for women with oily skin as well women who want anti aging benefits. The gel primer minimizes the appearance of pores AND wrinkles. We thought our skin looked less oily than normal at the end of the day and our foundation was still intact. The fragrance is pleasant but light.
