Those of us who have an oily skin or oily T-Zone can experience at a bit of challenge finding products that won’t have us looking “cakey” after a few hours, especially if we work in a warm environment. There is a lot to consider when we purchase make up as the same product doesn’t work for everybody. Most of us has combination skin so it can get a bit tricky when choosing products that will work for both skin types. Its good to do a little research to be more educated about products before buying them.
I have discovered a few matte foundations that could assist you with these issues:
