Tackle Your T-Zone With These Shine-Banishing Makeup Primers

This guest post is courtesy of Thefind.com

The incoming warmer weather might be good news for those brand-new platform espadrilles you bought, or that potential new swimsuit you've been waiting for an excuse to buy... but maybe not so great for your complexion. Sure, a little vitamin D is healthy, but unsightly shiny skin is enough to make some of us want to cover up and hide from the sunshine for the rest of the afternoon. If an oily T-zone is a beauty woe you're faced with on a daily basis -- especially if it's a problem that flares up in the sunnier months -- you need to equip yourself with a mattifying primer, designed to tackle your T-zone, where shine tends to build up most. MAC Prep + Prime Zone Treatment, Clinique T-Zone Shine Control, and NARS Pro-Prime all do double-duty by helping refine the look of pores and reduce the appearance of a shiny T-zone, providing a smooth, shine-free base for the rest of your makeup that will actually stay matte throughout the day.

For easier spot treatment,
Shiseido Pureness Mattifying Stick glides on clear to target troublesome shiny areas, and helps improve makeup application to ensure a smooth, matte complexion. For heavy-duty shine control all day long, Urban Decay's De-Slick in a Tube can be worn under or over makeup, allowing you to touch up without ruining your existing makeup, even under the hottest lights or in the muggiest weather!
