Kat Von D’s Lock-It range is a crowd favourite for its lasting coverage and staying power, so you can expect the recently added blotting powder compact to deliver. Concocted with super fine absorbing powders, the refillable compact promises to blot excess oil while remaining undetectable. Another reason to love it: that gorgeous wax seal-inspired design.
$45, available in 4 shades from fair to deep, at Sephora.
Benefit Cosmetics The Porefessional: Agent Zero Shine

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder
If you’re a mineral makeup fanatic, you’ll want to give the London brand’s Stay Matte Pressed Powder a go. The formula’s concocted from natural minerals and promises high coverage, up to five hours of shine control and helps diminish the appearance of pores. Plus, its affordable price tag makes it a steal.
$13.90, available at Watsons.
Cover FX Blotting Powder
The first thing I like about this compact: it’s ultra-slim (it’ll take up less space in your bridal clutch!). The powder does a good job in keeping sebum in check thanks to Amazonia Kaolin Clay which has great oil-absorbing properties. There’s slight coverage without interfering with your foundation, and comes with vitamins and skin-beneficial ingredients too.
