Going to Battle with Oily Skin ♡

Hey Guys,

Yup, I missed last Thursday's post because I forgot, I genuinely forgot it was posting day, but shall I tell you why or how I suppose, I forgot? I went to my very first blogging event!! In over two years of blogging, I've turned down events because I was so nervous, but I took the plunge this time! It was for the launch of the new CoverFX Foundation, which I am most excited about! Anyway, I've had this post idea in my mind for ages now, and I'm finally getting a chance to write and publish it! It'll be a very quick post but I wanted to share the 'tips' (how fitting :P) I live by for oily skin. I have oily skin and its annoying, very annoying. But then, I also get dry skin, so one would just go with, combination skin lol. And for years now, I've been trailing methods of reducing shine throughout the day or trying to prevent the oiliness from getting anything like butter grease! Its my nose, that's the worst part, oh and my chin is starting to attract oiliness, not fun ...

Now, these are obvious tips, but I wanted to share, the specific products I use to get the shine under control.

1. Prime That Skin!

I never used too, and still don't on a daily basis but I like to use an Oil Control Primer, when I know I'm going to be out the whole day, I rub the Soap & Glory One Heck of a Block Primer into my skin, after my moisturizer and it helps keep everything at bay. It also helps the makeup last longer, I'm not sure of the science behind it, or how a primer does so, but it does!

2. Blot Girl Blot!

I live by this stuff, its the DHC Oil Blotting Paper and I can't even tell you how handy it is. I keep it in my bag and if I see my nose is getting all shiny and like you can fry an egg on it, imma blot it. I simply tap that nose and the paper absorbs all the excess oil. When you finish tapping, you can see all the oil on the paper, and every time, I think to myself, daaamn, that's a load of oil, how did it get there!

3. Set That Oil at Bay!

I know most of us do this everyday, but until about last year, I never used too. I now, after applying all the makeup, brush on a little bit of the KIKO Invisible Powder and you see the mattifying effect immediately. It sets everything and takes away all the oil.

4. Spray and Set!

Another confession, I only started used a setting spray about a month ago, I guess I never thought about using one before. But holy moly, it really does make a difference, yes, it keeps my makeup lasting those few hours longer, but the spray acts as a barrier and controls any oil product. Which, I find to be so cool. I love the Marc Jacobs Re(cover) Mist, it smells good too!

What are your tips for oily skin?
