  1. Powder, but go easy!

Avoid over powder. Make sure that you are wearing thin layers of makeup, then powder it down with translucent powder. If it is mineral based, it will help keep oil at bay. Beauty Insider’s pick is NYX HD Finishing Powder which hits all the right spots: translucent, mineral based, and affordable.

  1. Spray smart

For extra insurance, setting spray will help keep your entire makeup look in place. Choose one with a matte effect. This Urban Decay De-Slick Oil Control Makeup Setting Spray is weightless and controls oil production. Use it as a final touch, because this spray works on foundation, shadow, blush and keeps it all from fading and smudging.

Beauty Insider’s last tip is to keep oil control sheets in your bag and work desk. When you feel your skin getting oily like in the middle of the day, grab a sheet instead of powdering your nose. This will keep your makeup from looking cakey.
