Hi. So I only started wearing makeup recently but I've watched lots of makeup tutorials and tried different makeup products. Right now I'm using Vichy Dermablend liquid foundation (I have the perfect color) and Ben Nye concealer and Smashbox primer. All three work like magic.
However, 5 hours after putting my makeup on in the morning, shit happens. Later on in the day, my face becomes really oily.
1.) Yes, I do wear moisturizer;
2.) Yes, I did try an anti-oil product and no, I'm not trying it again because the foundation becomes clumps and forms small balls of solid substance whenever I apply it--the anti-oil/anti-shine product resists the foundation;
3.) Yes, I tried the blotching pad. So whenever I put the makeup on, my indented acne scars pretty much becomes invisible. The foundation looks smooth and even. But whenever I blotch my face with the pad, some of the foundation comes off and the foundation looks uneven and my acne scars become visible. This is even worse when I use toilet paper.
So I guess my question is, how do you retouch makeup later on in the day and maintain the look that you had when you just put your makeup on?
