The Best Foundations for Oily Skin


Having oily skin is no joke. While some believe that oil is synonymous with sweat (and keeping your face cool and hydrated is key), those of us with oil-centric mugs can attest to the fact that this is certainly not the case. Come rain or shy, humid or dry, oil sometimes cannot be stopped – no matter our efforts.

Your skin is already producing an abundance of oil on its own, so do yourself a favor and opt for a foundation that’s not only oil-free, but also has anti-shine properties that dissolve excess oil, leaving you with a naturally matte (but not flat) complexion.

Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Oil-Free BB Cream: This all-in-one formula acts as both a skincare and makeup product for combination and oily skin types, combating shine, uneven tone, texture and visible marks. It’s light enough to easily blend in with your skin tone, while mattifying and oil-absorbing mineral pigments provide all-day shine control.

Maybelline Fit Me Shine-Free Foundation: With an anti-shine core, this gel stick foundation dissolves oil for a fresh and natural matte finish. Plus, it’s travel-friendly.

Pro tip: Loving this foundation stick? Get a second one that’s a couple shades darker than your natural skin tone and use it to contour. Just swipe it under the cheekbones, along the hairline, jawline and sides of the nose, blend and go about your day!

NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation: Matte makeup is a common option for those with oily mugs. Designed to create a clean, flawless finish, this foundation mattifies in such a way that your skin’s natural radiance can still shine through. It’s fighting oil and boosting your skin’s luminosity at the same time.

L’Oréal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Bare Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 18: This liquid foundation transforms into a barely-there powder on contact for a youthful glow, minus the shine or the heavy feel.

That was it for today! I really hope this was helpful to some of you who ”struggle” with oily skin, like I do. Tell me in the comments some of your favorite foundations for oily skin! 🙂

Have a nice day ❤

Love, Dajana.
