Thank you so much Jacqueline, I really do appreciate the time and effort you take to answer my questions. I do enjoy the primer, I'm going to experiment and see what work best for me. Stay awesome!

Phew, okay Jacqueline today was a lot better. I cut out the agelnist and my face didn't turn into a desert. I used the right amount of primer and my foundation applications was better ten fold. I got pretty oily around the 4 hr mark. I blotted and now it's been about 9 hrs in total and I'm looking pretty luminous. :(
It has held my foundation down better though! what I mean is it still looks good I'm just slightly glowy-er than I'd like. Maybe I should try a different foundation?

Good, I'm glad... :) Okay, I don't know how oily your skin is; however, when it comes to managing it, adjusting or changing your skin care regimen makes a big difference. How oily your skin appears can vary season by season, week by week, even day by day. Oil production is influenced by hormones, mood, and by the weather. For example, some people have problems with oily skin only in the summer when they're sweating. It’s important to be aware of how your skin varies so that you can adjust your skin care accordingly. You may need cleanser with glycolic acid or beta-hydroxy acid every day during the summer but only now and then during the winter.

If over the counter products aren't enough to help you manage oily skin, talk to your dermatologist. Lasers and chemical peels can help reduce oiliness. Creams made with tretinoin, adapalene, and tazarotene can help by altering your pores and reducing oiliness. Since these products can be irritating, it’s best to use them only on oily areas and only as often as you really need it.

You can also use the Nurturing Force over your makeup. Just take a bit of the product and tap it over your oilier areas and you will be all matte again, and it won't disturb the makeup. There is no product that I know of that will keep oily skin shine free without the need for touch ups for 8 hours; any product that keeps the oil at bay for anywhere from 4 to 6 hours without the need for touch ups really is a winner. Sometimes I think people's expectations in relation to products and/makeup that help stop sebum production can be a bit unrealistic. When it comes to oily skin, every persons skin is different... ;)

What about a powder with spf, I recently purchased a shiseido powder containing 36 spf. I know this couldn't give me the sun protection I need on its own. but it would suffice through the day?

I'm not sure how much SPF you think you need, but when it comes to sunscreen, a SPF of 15 or higher is adequate protection, and 30 SPF for any extended time spent outdoors. ;)

Either or honestly, I suppose it'd make more sense to use a moisturizer with spf. I haven't found a good sunscreen that doesn't leave me oily.

That actually crossed my mind about the alcohol. I'll ex that out tomorrow. Do you have any suggestions for a sunscreen? Should I moisturizer my face fairly well before makeup application? I usually do a very light moisturizer, sunscreen and then primer.

Oh a pea sized amount.. Well, I definitely used way to much of the primer. I didn't realize how dense it was so it kind of ended up smoothing out like a moisturizer.

I hope you're having a great weekend :)

Would you be adverse to using a moisturizer with sunscreen versus using a separate moisturizer and a separate sunscreen?
