Can anybody recommend something to take the perpetual shine off my nose?hmm

I just use ordinary face powder (Maybelline), but within minutes it's shiny again. It's just my skin type unfortunately, I'm not overwashing it or anything.

I use blotting paper, from the Body Shop, or the skin care section of Boots.

I use a Laura Mercier primer or a Mac, then either LM loose powder or Bobbi Brown loose powder. I carry blotters in my bag. However since doing the ocm i have found my skin needs less powder.

Definitely try the oil cleansing method and try using a primer under your foundation.

Talc based powders are not that great so that eliminates most high street powders. But Mac and Clinique do some good setting powders.

I've always had success with mineral makeup for excess shine. And I mean total mineral so a company like lily lolo not the l'oreal or bare escentuals mineral foundations.

So you'd be using one product that you apply with a brush rather than foundation then powder. It works with your skin's oil rather than the oil causing the foundation to slide off your face. Lily Lolo do sample sizes so can give it a go for a couple of quid.

Have you tried something like Clinique pore refining serum, you can get a free tester.

I am using the ocm and my nose is about the shininess as before I started doing it. I think it's just the way I am tbh.

I shall have a look at the mineral makeup.

Boots sell corn silk, very good and invisible

I was told they'd discontinued the clinique pore refining thingy, maybe I was lied to by the girl on the counter, she HAD just started..

Mac prep and prime before make up and mac blot powder are the only things that stop my face shining all day!

Smashbox PhotoFinish primer.
Expensive, but lasts ages, and more importantly, works.
