StyleBeauty: Shine Free Face
Whether it’s attributed to overactive hormones or bad genes, I was not blessed with good skin. Most days my face is so oily it rivals the Exxon Valdez spill. What’s a girl to do? Find the right products to manage my uncontrollable pores! While the right foundation can certainly help, I can’t stress enough the importance of prepping your canvas with the perfect primer. Once you’re primed and ready, try one of these oil free foundations perfect for creating a flawless face.
Clinique Even Better Makeup – My introduction to makeup in middle school included a trip to the Clinique counter with my mom and today the brand remains a staple in my product arsenal. This foundation provides medium coverage while also working to even your skin tone. What more could you ask for?
Prescriptives Virtual Matte Powder – Another staple since my teenage years, the Prescriptives brand is back with a vengeance. Wear alone for light to medium coverage or layer over liquid foundation for full coverage that stays shine free all day long.
MAC Studio Fix Powder – As someone who struggles with a multitude of skin problems, I love the full coverage that comes with MAC products. Studio Fix is my every day go-to and much like the Energizer Bunny it keeps going strong all day long.
Benefit Hello Flawless Brightening Makeup – A new discovery in my quest for oil-free foundation, the Hello Flawless is just that, flawless. I received a sample of this amazing product with my latest Sephora order and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with both its coverage and oil-controlling properties.
Neutrogena Shine Control Makeup – Can Neutrogena do no wrong? This oil-free foundation offers medium coverage without weighing you down.
Precriptives Virtual Matte Oil Control Makeup – Have I said how thrilled I am to have Prescriptives back in my life (for those that don’t know, it went off the market for a few years during the economic downturn)? Virtual Matte was my go-to through both high-school and college and might be the ultimate solution to oily skin. I can’t sing the praises of this little miracle bottle enough.
Bare Minerals Matte Foundation – Looking for a lighter coverage to control oil during the day? Look no further than Bare Minerals Matte. This one is great for the gal who doesn’t like a lot of makeup but still desires the oil controlling properties of a powder.
