My fellow oily skinned readers, rejoice. It’s hot, it’s mucky, the sun isn’t letting up, but our makeup doesn’t have to pay the price! There are a few great options for us when it comes to finding makeup primers that extend the life of our makeup and keep it from sliding off our skin. I have come across three fantastic silicone free mattifying primers that are available in all price ranges: high, mid and low.
You may remember a very similar post on this very subject from a couple of years ago, and it’s good to know that there are new and exciting products being developed to help those of us with normal-to-oily skin and are silicon-free. Silicone, also known as dimethicone, is a common ingredient in many primers and makeup products specifically for oily skin. Yes, it does do a good job of preventing oil spills, but it also can create havoc for those of us with silicone sensitivities.
These three silicone free makeup primers have all passed my oily skin makeup test, which is basically to use them on a typical day and see how well they stay put throughout running errands, going here and there and all the other activities that go on during a typical day
elf Cosmetics Oil Control Primer Mist ($8) – I’m so glad elf created this product, a recent addition to their line of primers. You spray it on your face before you add makeup and proceed with your day.
Ren Clean Skincare Perfect Canvas Skin Finishing Serum($55) – I did a little shopping of my makeup stash over the weekend and joyfully rediscovered my bottle of this skincare powerhouse. It’s a liquid that not only makes matte happen, but it also offers powerful skincare benefits which include reducing the appearance of your pores as well as lifting and firming skin.
