Makeup & Beauty Tips on How to Minimize Shine Throughout the Day

Share your best tips and tricks for keeping your face shine-free during the day!  Feel free to share your experiences, how you mastered techniques, or what you struggle with.

My Tips

  1. I have normal-to-dry skin, so I don’t have a lot of shine that needs to be dealt with, so my tips and tricks come from living with that type of skin!  As a result, I find a light dusting of pressed powder (regular, finishing, setting, or blot!) all work well on my t-zone to “reset” my finish if I’ve gotten a little shiny.
  2. I like primers, because they help minimize the oil from the get-go.  There are mattifying primers that work well.
  3. Setting foundation after you’ve applied (especially liquid or cream) with either setting or finishing powder does help to prolong and keep shine at bay, even if it might not last all day if you have an oilier skin type.
