- A good skincare regime is key. Make sure you cleanse both morning and night to clear any oil buildup, and keep your skin moisturised. Even oily skin needs hydration, so try the Clarins Truly Matte range.
- Primers are your friend. If you have very oily skin, opt for a special purpose primer like the Bare Minerals Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer, £21, bareminerals.co.uk, or the famous Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer, £12.50, boots.com.
- Keep blotting paper in your handbag as a quick fix for shine. We particularly like the Shiseido Pureness Oil Control Blotting Paper, £18 for 100 sheets, boots.com.
- Benefit's new The POREfessional: Agent Zero Shine, £23.50, boots.com is a great translucent powder for you handbag. Dust it over your makeup in the morning, then top up when you spot a shine eruption.
