Makeup suggestions..........

I am the type of person I dont wear makeup daily. And just recently I started to wear makeup daily. So you could say I am not very familiar with all the products. I have been wearing Covergirl Advanced Radiance foundation and pressed powder and a little eyeliner and mascara. Well since doing this my skin has been unbelievable oily.... I have never had this problem with my skin. At first I thought maybe it was my sunscreen but there are days where I only wear my sunscreen and have no problems with oil. I was just looking for some suggestions for makeup that wouldnt do this to my skin. TIA :D

    Where can I get either of those? Department store?

    Bare minerals: stores like ULTA and Sephora, but you can also get them online or on television.
    MAC: it depends on where you live.

    I like Maybelline Pure Makeup. It has no oil in it so that might help you.

    I use Neutrogena Clean Tint (a medicated and very sheer foundation containing slycilic acid) or Neutrogena Mineral Sheers (a powder foundation). I have *very* oily skin, and while neither of these stops that (nothing really does), they don't aggravate it which says a lot. They're also hypoallergenic.

    Bare Minerals all the way! It is the bomb! I live in hot and humid Florida and it is the only thing that doesn't clog my pores or slide off my face. Love, love, love Bare Minerals. I have been using it since 99 or 2000. I would never go back to liquid, ick. Sorry if I sound like an infomerical. :lol:

    Well today I went to Ulta and bought their mineral makeup. It was really fun they did me all up with their makeup I really loved the look. So Im hoping this will help with the oilyness. My concern is in this Texas heat...will it last all day. We'll see :D:D

    Cover Girl also makes a very nice tinted moisturizer.
