This makeup was applied without primer (I’ve tried some primers and they make me extra shiny) and I have oily skin. I think the makeup is a bit heavy but that’s probably because I don’t wear it regularly.

You look beautiful! I think it all looks good, you eyes look pretty and with the eyeliner your eyes pop out 🙂 The only thing I would say is, is there anyway you could use a loose powder to maybe take more of the shine away? I know you said you have oily skin so that’s my only thing!

You look beautiful. Have you tried and of the Skindinavia setting sprays or Urban Decay De Slick? If you aren’t going to use a primer I would definitely suggest a setting spray to make sure your makeup doesnt move and disappear (especially because you have oily skin). You spray it on before and after doing your makeup and it won’t budge.
I would also suggest you keep looking for a primer. All primers do different things and there are some really good ones out there that are specifically for oily skin. I suggest having a look at makeupalley.com for reviews. If you do shopping, talk to the girls at counters for their suggestions and you may get some sample to try out before buying.

@stbMohror Thanks so much! And yes, I have really big eyes and I loved the eye makeup! However, it was too golden or dark for my ivory dress (my colors are orange, ivory, and rust). However, she did a great job on the eyes.
@glow worm I haven’t tried any of those setting sprays. Now I know what to look for next time I go to the mall. I read the reviews for De Slick on MUalley and people with extra oil aren’t really loving it. I’m going to sample it though and see how it works out. I appreciate the suggestions.
@Eva Peron Thanks!

Have you tried Hourglass primer? I love it! It seems matifiying to me. Or, you could try Urban Decays’ De-Slick finishing spray. Love the makeup!! Maybe a touch of color to the eyelids…
Edit: oops, just saw someone else mention the setting spray. I use the one for dry skin. It works really well, especially when its HOT out.

your eyes look nice. i would put a little more mascara on the outer bottom lashes. you have great lips. i would try something with just a bit more colour. don’t forget the lipliner.
in pro pics, your makeup will get faded out with the flashes and lights so apply at least 50% more than normal to look good in the pics.
as for your oily skin, use a waterbased foundation (not oil based) and use a dampened sea sponge to apply it, not your fingers. dust translucent powder on your face to set it. apply your eyeshadow and blush and use your translucent powder again to set those. then do your eyeliner, mascara and lipstick.
