I dont know how dry your skin is and how fine your lines are but….I love moisturizing with coconut oil overnight and after washing face in moring using MACs illuminate moisturizer + primer first and then the primer that I need for the look I’m going for that day (usually matte).  I also find taking a collagen supplement helps with the fine lines

lfranke :  I don’t really use primer but use sun screen as foundation base instead. I’m using collagen as my moisturizer then sun screen and perfecting skin tint then loose powder to set the face and rid of oil.

lfranke :  I have very dry skin, it’s pretty gross. 

I also discovered primer not too long as well, as my friend told me to try it.

What helps me is this:

1. Perfect your face washing routine. I exfoliate my face almost every night. A little extreme, but I have to.

2. I use the “First Aid Repair Cream” lotion for your face from Sephora. It’s wonderful! 

3. I then put a tiny dab of Vaseline on top of that on my face. Gross, but it works. I usually put it around my eyes, nose, and any other places of my face that are prone to getting really dry.

4. I then let that dry a little, maybe 20 minutes.

5. I will normally do my hair, eat breakfast, or whatever.

6. Then, I do my makeup. 

Haven’t had any problems since!

If you do use the Vaseline, I recommend getting a setting spray for your makeup.

i always use clinique moisturizer for oily skin.  I don’t actually have oily skin, but I subscribe to the belief that screwing around with your skin as little as possible leads to the nicest skin.  I only wash my face with clinique face wash for dry skin for that same reason.

My skin is SUPER dry. I use Nivea sensitive daytime moisturiser for dry skin under the Benefit primer called Pre-Fessional. The moisturiser on it’s own tends to add a bit of sheen, but with the primer and foudation (I use a matte foundation) it all works like a dream!

I second collagen supplements.

Also heard good things about Eminence Organics from this site and decided to give it a try.  I got the coconut age corrective moisturizer and the guava and bamboo age defying moisturizer and let me tell you…they are a god send.  Your skin just drinks it up.  It really softens and moisturizers your skin without making it look greasy.

I use Marc Jacobs Under(cover) Perfecting Cocunut Face primer and it is great for both moisturizing and priming. I like that it can be used as a 2 in 1. It has an amazing smell, coconut obviously. It makes my skin feel really nice and hydrated and my makeup does last for a lot longer while wearing it..
