Just the idea of adding more layers to your skin care routine can make anyone who is blessed with oily skin cringe. Don't dismiss primers, though, as they can keep your makeup from slipping and smudging through the day—you just have to find the right one. Focus on finding oil-free primers (duh, right?) that tackle shine, and apply before foundation all over your face or just to the trouble areas like your T-zone. And there's a primer perfect for you, no matter your budget.
We've created a list to find the best primer for oily skin across four budget categories: the Splurge-Worthy, that centers on luxury brands $45+; the Treat Yourself zone that hovers around $30; Wallet-Friendly for around $20, and the Super Steals you can snag for less than $10. Now you can look fresh-faced even when the temperatures start scorching in the summer.
Want to rock your favorite blogger's style, but can't swing the designer price tags? Don't sweat it—we're right there with you, which is why we rely on companies like ThredUP and Vestiaire Collective to satisfy our luxury cravings with discount designer prices on shoes, handbags, and accessories. Thanks to these stores, you can snag a pair of Prada pumps or Jimmy Choo mules for a much more reasonable fare.
Every month we're scouring the pre-owned section to find our must-have designer bags, shoes, and more that are too pretty to sit on a shelf for the rest of their lives. But don't wait too long because these fab finds will be gone before you have time to overthink it.
