I dont wear makeup. have never worn makeup. No clue about makeup.

I tend to get shiny. I have a shindig to attend in a few weeks and would like to know what can i use to prevent the shininess. I dont want to wear heavy makeup or even look like im wearing makeup. also i do tend to have break outs and I have blemishes. I wouldnt mind covering those up as well. Any suggestions pleeze!!!

You just press (don't rub) the little sheets onto the oily parts of your face and they absorb the oil. Here's a pic:



As for your breakouts you can blend a little concealer over them to hide them. But since you have a few weeks until your event, maybe you can do an aspirin mask 1-2 a week to help heal them instead. Here's a recipe: The World Famous Aspirin Mask

I have just started trying asprin mask and they work awesomely, but it would flake so easily. thanks for the link, now i know to add some oil.

as for the concealer, just in case, which do you recommend. or all they all the same?
