I personally love Make Up Forever’s HD foundation. It’s very light, yet covers well. I find it very comfortable to wear. On most days I actually mix it with Cetaphil moisturizer to make it even lighter.

Clinique! I swear by it! I have Perfectly Balanced, but they have different choices, and all feel like absolutely nothing! Except the really moisturizing foundation, it is for dry skin so on me it’s a bit oily.

maybe your skin just needs a break?

have you tried cutting down to just a tinted moisterizer for a little while?

or do you use blotting pads to keep your face from getting oily or shiny while your makeup is on?

Maybe try a primer beforehand and a light dusting of finishing powder on your t zone after. You could also try a new foundation.

I’m a big fan of the micabella mineral foundation. Most days I just use it mixed in with my moisturizer but is also great on its own.

American Beauty (available at Kohl’s) makes a great foundation that is affordable and good quality. Gives great coverage & I don’t feel it when I’m wearing it. I follow up with their powder too. MAC’s Studio Sculpt also gives great coverage and looks very natural. However, it is hydrating, so if you have oily areas you might want to try a MAC foundation for oily skin (like Studio Fix, a combo of foundation & powder). Good luck!

I use Dior foundation, and I absolutely love it because I can’t feel that it is even on.

I really like Perfekt. It’s a gel and it’s transluscent. I use concealer to cover up any trouble spots.

I have tried others, but I love my Mary Kay foundation. It is light, smooth, without drying out my skin or leaving an oily feeling like the others I’ve tried (cover girl, revlon, etc.)

What’s your face-washing regime? I’ve heard you can wash your face and/or hair with dish soap to cut the “grease” (just don’t use one with bleach alternative!). Still wouldn’t do this every day, but maybe once in a while, just to get rid of the guck.

And definitely use powder on the T-zone!
