I really enjoyed this article. I live in SoCal and one minute it's pouring rain and the next it's burning hot. I also have oily skin and I have trouble making my makeup last. These tips will really help. Thanks!!

Great tips/advice. Especially with Summer finally here. Eye primer is a (year round) must for me.

Eye primer is a must! I wear it every day. Without it, my eye shadow totally disappears into my crease.
