my face is always shining! (shiny face)

Recommended Posts

I found a few references to "shiny face" in some threads, but nothing specifically for that. My face is shiny ALL the time. It's not even that it's that oily looking, but it's just shiny. Even if I just wash it there is a gleam to it. I absolutely hate about 95% of all pictures I am in b/c my face is always shiny. My friends think I am crazy cuz I stress about it all the time. Everytime I use the bathroom when I am out, I use toilet paper to dab the shine away and I put powder on. But within a few minutes, the powder is gone and I am shiny again! I usually buy cheap CVS powder, so am wondering if there is some miracle powder or something I can buy. Any suggestions?

I too have very oily skin and I found a product that has been working wonders this summer when my shine is at it's worse! It's a matte lotion with sunscreen and you can either get it with or without tint. It's called Medi-Matte Oil Control Lotion by Cosmedicine and you can get it a sephora. Oily Blotting Papers also work to give yourself a little extra matte throughout the day.

MAC blot powder is my friend. I use a tinited moisturiser and then dust that over my face. Makes it nice and light feeling while still being matte. It obsorbs oil so it lasts. Sometimes I will re-apply though if I'm going out at night.

I use the Mac blot powder also, but my face isn't overall shiny - just my chin and nose really. It works perfectly fine for those areas! It lasts me for a long time too.

What about if I don't really wear makeup? I have never worn foundation or anything so really don't like having things on my face. It makes me feel dirty. I was really hoping for some miracle cure. Darn.

 

I am totally buying lemons when I go shopping tonight and then I will decide between the mac blotter and the medi-something mentioned earlier. I am only allowing myself to buy ONE thing for now cuz I have so many that I don't like...

 

Thanks for the input girlies!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
