I was reading these makeup reviews for cornstarch, used as a setting powder over makeup, and they said it helped oily skin stay matte throughout the day. Has anyone tried this? Is it safe to just use the cornstarch from your cupboard, or is it better to buy cornstarch baby powder?

You! Yes, you. The one reading this. You are beautiful, talented, amazing and simply the best at being you. Never forget that.

 

You don't have to be pretty. You don't owe prettiness to anyone. Not to you boyfriend/spouse/partner. Not to your coworkers, especially not to random men on the street. You don't owe it to your mother, you don't owe it to your children, you don't owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked "female."

Plea to the world: Eat less meat! Or better yet, don't eat it at all! The meat industry violates basic animal rights, it's destroying our planet, and there are so many health benefits you can gain by decreasing/eliminating meat from your diet. Don't let me tell you- do your own research so you can decide for yourself. (The dairy and egg industries are just as horrendous).

I highly recommend watching the movie Earthlings. ^

I tried this, and it didn't work as well as powders specifically designed for oil control. I really like Kryolan Anti Shine. Actually, my whole makeup routine is Murad oil control lotion, Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation, and then Kryolan Anti Shine Powder. I am very oily, and that combination keeps me looking good for most of the day. I mostly attribute it to the Hourglass foundation though. I once applied it to my skin while it was covered in oil, and it literally absorbed it. Not sure how it does that, but I'm not going to question it since it works.

Thanks, I'm going to look into these products! I have EXTREMELY oily skin. I used cornstarch baby powder over my foundation today and sadly it didn't work. It just made my face look really cakey by the end of the school day.
