While we all love looking like we have dewy, healthy skin, for some people with oily skin types, the shine can get out of control. Excess oil can cause makeup to break down, transfer, and in some cases, just make our skin look downright reflective.

Luckily, there are beauty products out there that will save your complexion. If you want to keep your oil in check, you should make sure that your complexion is properly hydrated, and you're using makeup products designed to keep you shine-free.

Thanks to the Sephora Beauty Insider Community, I discovered a product that is ideal for keeping my face matte. I included those in the list below, along with a few other of my own personal favorites that manage to keep my makeup looking good throughout the day.
