Products for greasy skin

My problem is that I have greasy skin, and my face is permanently shiny. No matter how carefully I apply my makeup, it always seems to slip after a couple of hours. Can you recommend any makeup products which work for my skin type?

Unless you have very dry skin, your face is bound to have an element of shininess. It would be helpful to know your makeup routine: Do you use foundation? If so, I would recommend that you seal it with a dusting of loose powder. This will prevent your skin from becoming shiny so quickly, and stop it 'sliding off your face'. Another great alternative for people with greasy skin, is to use a 2-in-1 compact. Application is quick and easy, the coverage is as effective as a foundation, but not as heavy. The beauty of it is that you can pop it in your handbag for quick touch-ups during the day.
