shonna said: What are the best primers for oily skin?

After spending ages applying your makeup and ensuring your foundation is well blended, one of the most frustrating things is shine and oil seeping through your makeup throughout the day. 

The Prep

First up a primer can only do so much at combating oil and keeping your makeup on. If your skin is excessively oily you may need to look beneath the surface. Sometimes when the skin has become dehydrated and dry it goes into overload and starts producing loads of oil to compensate for any oil that it has lost (or is missing) Ditch the harsh foaming cleansers and switch to a cleansing oil (oil is attracted to oil so this will help decrease excess oil and re-hydrate your skin) and ensure you are using a moisturiser.

dupes/alternatives masterpost ✨

Hey loves, this masterpost was partially requested and I’m so excited.  I recommend to do your research before buying the dupe, some of the dupes are better than others. Some brands are repeated. Here is a dupe masterpost for MAC lipsticks. Here is a dupe masterpost for liquid lipsticks. Here is a spreadsheet of Coastal Scents eyeshadows to MAC eyeshadow dupes. Most of these dupes I found online so I do not take credit for any of those but some I researched myself. This is under read more because this list is very long. :) If you have any more dupes or questions, feel free to send them in.

ghostly-illusions  asked:

Could the ELF cosmetics poreless face primer be a possible dupe for Smashbox's photo finish face primer? I really like smashbox's primer, however paying 36 dollars for it is a little too much for a college student.

I think the best dupe of the Smashbox primer is actually Maybelline Baby Skin.  Both are clear, lightweight primers that blur pores without clogging them.  I might even venture so far to say that the Maybelline primer out performs the Smashbox primer in terms of smoothing the skin to perfection.


Maybelline Baby Skin Face Primer - $6

Hope this helps!
