When you have oily or combination skin, it's way too easy to accidentally be the wrong kind of glowy. That's why even before the shine peeks through, you have to prevent it with both your skincare and your makeup. One mattifying must-have is a good face powder, especially if your oils are extra persistent. Need recos? Check out our favorite shine-killing picks below!
