Re: Whats a good foundation for helping control shine?
Make sure you start with a good base to work on, so use a moisturiser suitable for oily skin or at least oily/combination skin, then make sure your foundation is oil free. Laura Mercier oil free foundation is quite pricey, but lasts all day, looks amazing and will keep you matt! If there are particular areas that get very oily you can try using an anti-shine product (available from mac, makeup forever and even the body shop), tap it onto certain areas like the t-zone to soak up excess oil, use it instead of or on top of moisturiser. And of course, the Mac blot powder that everyone has been recommending will keep shine at bay throughout the day.
