How To Achieve a Flawless Matte Base | Oily Skin

I am so excited for this video because it’s so bloody satisfying to watch! This video is for the oily skinned people, as blessed and cursed that we are. I have spent far too long walking around like a greasy monster so today I am passing over all of my advice on how you can achieve a flawless, matte base. Not only is this look flawless, it’s very long lasting. I don’t know about you, but it’s taken me years to find the perfect combination of products to achieve this result, but I can finally say that I think i’ve done it (you can be the judge of that!).

I’ve used a lot of high-end products but I believe these are what you need to achieve this look. I’ve mentioned a few high-street or drugstore alternatives in the video!

Below are the products and brushes I used to achieve this look.

Clinique Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup in 01 Linen (22.50)

MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter in Light Boost (£19.00)
Smashbox Photo Set Finishing Powder (£19.00)

      Thank you 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed it. I hope you like my future posts just as much!

  10. I every time spent my half an hour to read this web site’s articles or reviews all the time along
    with a cup of coffee.

  11. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed
    to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a
    pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

      Hello 🙂 Thanks for your comment – I’m always happy to help aspiring bloggers!

      I basically set up a free website on, so all the hosting, domain name (everything web related) was created by them and no techy knowledge is needed. However due to the success of my blog, I decided to go down the self hosting route (only last week!). I signed up with HostGator which cost me around £90 for a year, and I transferred all of my content over to this new site. It was quite a lengthy process but it means i’m not entitled to start making some money.

      It’s completely up to you which route you take, but I’d always recommend the free option first, then you can always transfer things over at a later date 🙂

      Hope that helped.

  14. Awesome products! You know, I read that us oily skinned girls should, statistically, look younger as we age because our excess oils keep our skin super hydrated (thus, helping with age). Sooo… silver lining? 😉

    1. Clarina says:

      Thank you 🙂 Complete silver lining! Haha whenever I complain to a beautician they always say that! So, I can deal with that! Xx

      1. Yes! Just keep thinking: “When I’m old, I’ll look like I’m in my 20’s” 😉
