1-Exfoliate:  Great looking skin is the pre-requisite for a beautiful makeup application. Remove dry patches and reduce pore size with a good exfoliation.  Not only will it leave the skin feeling smooth and refreshed,  it also prepares the face for a flawless makeup application. 
Try an organic salt or sugar scrub for all natural exfoliation.
2-Keep on Bronzing: Just because summer is coming to an end doesn’t mean that you have to stop using bronzer. Make your transition from summer to winter by changing the shade of your bronzer.  Choose a matte bronzer to maintain a healthy glow even during the winter months. 
Choose a matte bronzer for year round glow.
3- Astringent: Combat oily skin by adding an astringent to your skin care routine. Witch hazel and tea tree oil are amazing products that help reduce oil and keep the skin feeling fresh and clean and breakout free.  Apply them in your T-zone and just above the apples of the cheeks where pores may be a little larger.
Witch Hazel and Tea Tree Oil are astringents for most skin types.
