Three steps to an oil-free face


I’ve spent most of my teens and very early 20s battling an oily complexion, especially during the humid summer. The only way I knew to combat the oil was with translucent powder, but that only lasted an hour or two. After multiple trips and talks with the wonderful people at Sephora, though, I’ve figured out a routine with some killer products that keep my face relatively matte throughout almost the entire day. 

I begin with Becca’s Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector underneath all my makeup, which really helps mattify my skin. After applying my foundation, concealer and setting powder, I use Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion to keep my eye shadow in place throughout the day. Let me tell you: this stuff is amazing. It kept my eye makeup in place throughout a dip in the swimming pool. And finally, after I’ve applied the rest of my makeup, I use Urban Decay’s De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray
