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.
Super small '90s sunglasses are back in a big way, throwing us way back to the early Britney era and Keanu Reeves in The Matrix. Itty bitty bits of eyewear made a statement on runways, from Jetson-inspired cat eyes at Louis Vuitton to tiny futuristic spectacles at Balenciaga, while It-girl sisters Gigi and Bella, along with Kendall and Selena, were spotted peeking over micro frames, truly marking the return of this skinny shade. In the spirit of nostalgia, we've rounded up a list of the best '90s sunnies on the market.
