Have you tried tea tree oil? It works wonders for me. I haven’t needed a blotting sheet in weeks!

I have very oily skin too and it drives me crazy.  I use Paula’s Choice Shine Stopper and it helps a lot!

I have been revamping my skin care and makeup lately. i have to ask if you are using cleanser for oily skin and if it is actually making your skin oiler? Are you using a moisturizer? if your skin feels tight after you wash it, you might actually not have as oily of skin as you think. i love the CeraVe cleanser but even the one for normal to oily is too drying so I use the creamy cleanser and I can actually use the moisturizer with sunscreen everyday which is amazing to me. I’ve always shied away from moisturizers In the past.

For makeup I now use the urban decay primer (Porefessional left me too greasy), Estée Lauder double wear foundation and It cosmetics bye bye pore finishing powder. I can go a good 12 hours without having to blot.

As far as primer goes, try looking for one that is water-based instead of silicone-based. I switched and it made a world of a difference! No more make up sliding right off. Laura Mercier makes an incredible water-based primer. Totally worth the price, especially for your wedding. 

ETA: I would also highly recommend going to a Sephora if you have one near you and just asking for help. The staff is so knowledgable about the different products and which ones would best meet your needs.

Avene skin care line has a product which you apply to your trouble zones (oily in this case) and you’ll notice a difference in the visibility of oil. I’ve tried it and liked it. It’s an anti-shine product. I’m pretty sure other skin care lines carry such products.

the best primer hands down for oily skin is becca’s ever matte primer. I work as a mua on the side and worked in sephora for about a year and out of everything I’ve tried, this is the primer that works the absoloute best. I recieved a deluxe sample of it to try out when I worked at sephora and I have never ever tried a primer that works this well for controling oil. It also gives a really gorgous smoothening effect for under your makeup. It’s pricy so I would reccomend trying a sample before purchasing so you can see if you like it
