Q: "What is the best oil control makeup or secret? An hour after mine goes on I need a blotter sheet..help!"—@bananana713

A: The secret to controlling the oil on your face, so that your makeup doesn't slide off midday comes down to these three things: 1) washing your face with an oil-reducing cleanser in the shower—that way you're already decreasing the amount of oil on your skin from the start; 2) Using a primer, like the ones here, to help mattify and prep your skin before you put colored cosmetics on, giving your makeup something to adhere to so it stays on longer; and 3) Choosing an oil-free foundation that's non-comedogenic—meaning: it won't cause breakouts.
