Having oily and porous skin can be annoying, particularly when doing your make-up, but fortunately there are several things you can do to make your make-up last. The best way to ensure long lasting make-up is finding a good primer.
Primers are not for everyone but I know it really helps me in filling in pores and keeping my foundation even.
Recently I heard about Benefit Porefessional Matte Rescue, which is a gel based primer as opposed to their Benefit Porefessional Face Primer, which is silicon based. The gel essentially makes a barrier over your skin preventing most of your oils from bleeding through. The silicon based primer fills in your pores giving you a smother finish, masking your pores.
Benefit Porefessional Face Primer is great and in my opinion really does help to fill in your pores but I love, love, love the Matte Rescue. At first it was a little weird to use a gel based formula as the consistency was a little odd but it does an amazing job at controlling my oils. However, I still get pretty oily but not to the same level as before and it doesn’t look as oily even when I know and can feel I am.
So, to all my oily people out there using make-up: give this a try it, might work really great for you.
