EASY ON THE SHIMMERY EYE SHADOWS
Think about the texture- be strategic with shimmer and shine as it could look too much for the picture. You can mix matte with shimmery colours to tone down the shimmer.
POWDER YOUR NOSE:
Translucent powder is more efficient at hiding shine then blotting paper , but taking both with you is essential especially if you have very oily skin.
